Ok, I made a little text about how to convert a walkman to a
distortionpedal, however the info were to little there for some, so here
it is again, but this time with a twist.
I’ve converted a tape recorder to do the same thing, this can be handy
when circuitbending and/or annoying ppl.
Ok so the theory is pretty darn easy. Sound enters the circuit from a
We substitute the tapehead for an input option of our own.
Distortion occurs when we feed the amplification part of the circuit with
higher volumes then it was designed to handle.
To identify the tapehead press play and look for the part going forward.
Then look for the cables connecting the circuitboard to the tapehead,
here we want to jack in.
Most players dont let the engine draw the tape round if the playbutton
isnt pushed in, this is the tricky part, you need to find how they
connect everything, in the case you se below it was easy, just 2 blue
Anyways, check out the video to se it in action.
