Magic Vibes Tremelo

You can never have enough wobble on the board, so here's a nice optical trem to add to the arsenal.

Supposedly very similar to the trem on a Magnatone amp (there isn't one at FuzzDog HQ to verify that - sorry!). What we do know is this gives a pleasing throb which ranges nicely from subtle to wob-wob, but doesn't get into choppy territory.

After much experimentation with different vactrols and LDR - LED 'roll your own' combinations, this kit works a treat with a high-intensity red LED and a LDR with very high 'dark' resistance. Would you expect anything less?

Board-mounted pots for minimal wiring and easy enclosure mounting.
