Hi all, a couple of days ago I found a nice looking schematic on the internet, wrote a shopping list and now have all the parts I need to get started.
But: stupid me, I didn't bookmark the site and after spending two hours searching I gave up. Can you help me out? Only thing I remember, the schematic was handwritten on paper with a grid (whats the name for this?). It uses a lm386 but it is not one of the Ruby or Noisy Cricket plans featuring a transistor.
Another question: what is the "grit switch" in the Noisy Cricket for?
Sorry for my English...
Do you have a parts list for your mystery schematic?
-Caps 10µF / 220µF / 47nF
-Resistors 10Ω / 1kΩ

"It uses a lm386 but it is not one of the Ruby or Noisy Cricket plans featuring a transistor."
The GRIT SWITCH seems to drive the circuit a little harder, giving it a little extra edge, or breakup. Its subtle, but I like it.
This schematic looks pretty close to what you are going for. a few different component values, but it doesn't use a transistor.
Or try this. Even more simple and less components.
Another method for doing a search is to search images. at the top of the page on google you can switch from web to images or video, maps, news, etc. I typed in lm386 and then clicked on "images" and there are a ton of schematics to look at.
