This article briefly describes the Guitar Control (TL062). This principle is easy to understand, but also very practical. Depth understanding of circuit elements, you can better grasp this principle. In this circuit, you can learn about and purchase these components: TL062.

Stand-alone, 9V battery powered unit, Three-level input selector, three-band tone control

This preamplifier was designed as a stand-alone portable unit, useful to control the signals generated by guitar pick-ups, particularly the contact “bug” types applied to acoustic instruments. Obviously it can be used with any type of instrument and pick-up. It features a -10dB, 0dB and 10dB pre-set input selector to adjust input sensitivity, in order to cope with almost any pick-up type and model. A very long battery life is ensured by the incredibly low current consumption of this circuit, i.e. less than 800μA.

Circuit operation:

IC1A op-amp is wired as an inverting amplifier, having its gain set by a three ways switch inserting different value resistors in parallel to R4. This input stage is followed by an active three-band tone control stage having unity gain when controls are set in their center position and built around IC1B.
