Guitar Pre-Amp with JFET 2N5457

Designed by Don Tillman, this guitar pre-amp circuit design is dedicated for people who don”t like op-amps module. This circuit is a discrete JFET pre-amplifier design, use 2N5457 as the main component. It has low noise, low distortion, low feedback, overloads gracefully, is small, etc.

Schematic Diagram

In the electrical sector, a schematic diagram is usually used to describe the design or model of equipment. Schematic diagrams are usually utilized for the maintenance and repair of electronic and electromechanical devices / units. Original schematics were made by hand, using standardized templates or pre-printed adhesive symbols, but nowadays Electrical CAD computer software is often used.

In electronic design automation, until the 1980s schematics were virtually the only formal representation for circuits. More lately, using the progress of computer system technology, other representations were introduced and specialized computer languages were developed, because with the explosive development of the complexity of electronic circuits, classic schematics are getting less practical. As an example, hardware description languages are indispensable for contemporary digital circuit design.
