Delay - Echo, Efek Gitar

Boss DM-2 Delay

Ini adalah efek pedal clone dari BOSS DM-2 Delay. Analog delay ini mampu menghasilkan waktu rentangĀ  perlambatan 30 sampai 330 mili detik. Memiliki tiga jenis pengaturan, antara lain Repeat Rate, Intensity dan Echo. Analog Dm-2 tergolong efek lama/vintage yang sangat terkenal dan biasanya harganya mahal. Effect Dm-2 menggunakan IC MN3005 dan IC compander NE570N

DM2 Boss DM-2 Delay

This analog delay pedal is able to produce delay times ranging from 30 to 330 Milliseconds. It’s got three dials with adjustments for Repeat Rate, Intensity, and Echo. This effect draws a lot of current so not all power supplies are able to power up this pedal. The vintage analog DM-2 is a very popular effect and prices are usually very high for a beat up but working pedal.

Version differences
There are at least 3 different versions of the DM-2. The first version was using the MN3005 BBD. This was soon changed to the low current version of the same circuit called MN3205. It is worth noting that the MN3005 has a SN ratio of 75 dB while the MN3205 is a little more noisy with its 67dB. The MN3205 only produces 0.8% distortion compared to 1% for the MN3005.

The DM-2 can be approximately dated by reading the number on the compander IC NE570N. It should have a 4 digit number giving you the year and month of production in the form YYMM. Note that this is the production date of the integrated chip and not of the pedal but it’s unlikely that the chips were stored for very long before used.

  1. Boss, dah pernah coba dibikin belum?
    Berhasil tidak?
    Oiya, kalo lihat PCB layout di DM-2 pake Transistor nya 7 buah.
    Koq schematicnya cuma pake 4 transistor?
    Trus, kaki IC MN3005 & MN3101 pin 1 koq tdk di ground kan?
    Cek aja datasheetnya.

  2. I want to build this pedal but I don’t have a toner based printer to do PCB transfers. Would you be able to make one? If so how much would you charge to make a custom PCB for this BOSS DM2?
