Low noise pre tone control circuit using 4558 – NE5532

A pre tone control using NE5532. In a three circuits of preamp tone controls by NE5532 is a very popular.

Low noise Preamplifier with tone control using NE5532

Figure 1 The circuit diagram of Low noise pre tone control circuit using NE55532

But it has details that are not clear. We recommend the Low noise pre tone control circuit using 4558  instead. We use the a NE5532 is the heart of the circuit. It was a very interesting Ics because have special features of the low signal noise, so commonly used in the high-class amplifier.

To avoid hum noise on the background.
Use: 15V Dual power supply

How to build

We assemble all parts on the PCB as Figure 2 the polarity of electrolyte capacitors must be correctly put on PCB.

On PCB layout is used for transistors – BC557 or BC560C noise transistors types. If the number MPSA42 to switch the position of the emitter and collector to the opposite direction.

In Figure 2 The actual-size of single sided copper PCB layout and the component layout.

Things To Be Careful for beginner at every point soldering Requires heating the solder sufficiently to ensure that all solder points are very well equipped.

And be careful not to heat the solder too hot, because May cause equipment damage And copper may be peeling off.

How to help the solder is easy to clean pins all the time.

When assembled and checked well.

To apply the power supply to this circuit, connects correctly output of circuit to the main amplifier and bring the good signal to input of the circuit. Check the operation of the circuit by adjusting the Knob. Obtain the desired result.

Modify the pre mic circuit.
Those who want to use the pre microphone, you can modify circuit to new as Figure 3 The feedback circuit for microphone
