Studio Pro

My DIY Marshall 4001 Studio 15

Specifications / Assembly / Samples / Tube Screamer / Contact

An amp with no pedal is as flat as an ocean with no wave. As I like surfing, I matched the amplifier with an overdrive. Which one? Only the best, Tube Screamer TS-808.

I found a very good kit, ready for assembly, specifically prepared by Klaus from Musikding. You can't get wrong, order, assemble, play. Components and schematics are available on Musikding website. It's a very standard design, 3 clipping diodes, 1 standard AOP (TI RC4558 that I finally replaced with a low noise AOP).

Once again, cost is amazing (32 € kit + box + knobs - in 2008). NB: Original Ibanez TS-808 has a price tag of 180 €!!!

Here is an overview of the assembly:
