P-QMC7805 Regulator - 7805, 5 Volt, 1A, Linear Voltage Regulator
5V linear regulator with up to 1 amp of current in a TO-220 package. This style of regulator can be found in many power supplies and also modular synth circuits as well as some stomp boxes. These voltage regulators are monolithic integrated circuits designed as fixed−voltage regulators for a wide variety of applications including local, on−card regulation. These regulators employ internal current limiting, thermal shutdown, and safe−area compensation. With adequate heatsinking they can deliver output currents in excess of 1.0 A. Although designed primarily as a fixed voltage regulator, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltages and currents.
P-QLM741 Op-Amp - LM741, Single, general purpose, 8-Pin DIP
LM741 single opamp in an 8-pin DIP package. The LM741 has been used in classic guitar pedals such as the Distortion Plus.
The LM741 series are general purpose operational amplifiers which feature improved performance over industry standards like the LM709. They are direct, plug-in replacements for the 709C, LM201, MC1439 and 748 in most applications. The amplifiers offer many features which make their application nearly foolproof: overload protection on the input and output, no latch-up when the common mode range is exceeded, as well as freedom from oscillations.
P-PC-ST1 StripBoard - Single Sided, 3.15” x 1.97”, Mounting Holes
Prototyping circuit board with a standard long strip pattern where tracks run the length of the board. The long tracks are convenient for power and ground rails, and for signal buses. Strips can be cut as needed to make smaller tracks and circuit pads and the board has 0.1" hole spacing for DIP integrated circuits/ headers as well as other parts. Higher quality than traditional stripboard, the holes are drilled, not punched.
P-R-ABE DSP Module - ABE, Accu-Bell Effector, 3 Adjustable Effects
The Accu-Bell Effector offers reverb, chorus, and delay with adjustable setting and tap tempo. This module runs on 5.5V to 9.5V DC so it is easy to incorporate into effect pedal builds. Please see the attached datasheet for an example schematic.
