    NostalgiTone 60’s Video Part 2

    This video focuses on the Tremolo Kill switch, tone enhancement and Drive circuit.


    This entire package is such a great deal. PCB, wiring harnesses, throw in the BC183s and the Anodes too. Most of the components are common and probably sitting in your drawer at home!


    This simple Tremolo circuit has a warm classic feel. Really smooth depth and rate. The pulsating LED helps determine the speed. Very impressive!


    I’m a huge fuzz fan. This did not disappoint! I got the matched BC183s. Nice full sound without going overboard like most fuzz builds. This is a usable, gigable fuzz. Nice overtones created over the 12th fret. Classic sound!


    I’ve been using this as an always on, gain rolled back. It’s matching really well with my telecaster.
    Can get crunchy, but smooth. Very complementary to the other two circuits. It’s a huge boost to the Fuzz.


    Thanks for the Feedback Andrew.

    So I’m finishing up the NostalgiTone 60’s board and had a question about UV printing. I’ve ordered drilled enclosures from Tayda before but never done UV printing. I’ve downloaded the artwork from you website but not sure where to go from here. Any help will be appreciated.



    Tayda has a page dedicated to ordering the UV service.


    You must read through all of that while knowing that I have already done the hard part in creating the exact printable PDF ART file that they need. Understanding that renders most of the text moot since it is already done for you. Unless of course you want to do your own art. In that case it is pretty intense because you will need knowledge of art programs to be able to proceed and they explain what they need in the link above.

    Just know that the PDF Art file is ready to submit to Tayda despite the repeated warnings asking if you know what you are doing and have read the article. Also if it comes up when asked about what side of the enclosure needs drilled or UV print it is going to be the FACE.

    Only use the PDF file included in the link in the build doc, or shop page.


    First order an enclosure. Combos need a 1590DD. Type 1590DD into the search bar at Tayda and pick a color. Since UV is Black pick a lighter color.


    Now you need to order the art service for a 1590DD if buying for the combo. (There are links for this in the instructions.)


    You will also need to order the 1590DD drill service as well.


    For that you need an account as well as the drill link I have already made. Once you have an account you can use the drill template link and it will take you to the Tayda Box Tool.


    So you need to place a Tayda order like normal.

    1. Order the painted enclosure remembering that the ART uses black printing so no dark enclosures.
    2. Order the Drill service
    3. Order the UV service

    After check out is complete you will need to wait 20 minutes or so..

    Then you need to go back to your Taydakits dashboard to finalize the order and put the correct services you ordered to the correct job. It is this way since many people order many different jobs all at the same time.

    Taydakits dashboard link: https://drill.taydakits.com/dashboard

    Note on the right side of the Dashboard you can see where you can add a drill template to be saved for future and the UV print has a button to add as well.



    On the right you will see where you will need to assign your drill template as well as your UV template.

    Note: Some of these are my personal templates below. Yours will not look the same since I own my own Bardel pedal company. You will only have one template for each of the links you use. One for drill and one for UV. Then you will assign these to the correct painted enclosure you bought. The PDF Artwork does not have the Bardel, or GuitarPCB branding, only NostalgiTone which you are welcome to use, and sell for that matter.


    Simply assign the drill template and UV template to the correct Box Job on the left.


    If there is some sort of error which I have yet to experience then they will let you know. That said you can’t change your mind once you submit an order.

    FYI: You will not have all the options as I did in the template photo above because I do have multiple artwork files to choose from to suit my personal needs.

    You will see after a while they will start working on your project:

    Thank you Barry!


    Thanks Barry for that detailed explanation!



    I happened to find a video series on YouTube regarding Tayda and UV printing.

    Note: I do not use the same art programs used. If you do your own art you will have to figure it out.

    Otherwise, I have provided my PDF art on the shop pages for the NostalgiTone 60s & 70s.

    When doing the UV file, it’s asking if I have data in the color layer, white layer and gloss layer. This is my first UV file, I don’t know what to answer…..


    “When doing the UV file, it’s asking if I have data in the color layer, white layer and gloss layer. This is my first UV file, I don’t know what to answer”

    Since it is black UV print (going on a light color enclosure) in this case you have data in the color layer, nothing else.

    Everything is explained on this link:


    The reason for a white layer is because you cannot print Red, or Blue on a black enclosure. It will not show up without a white layer first when choosing to print colors on a dark enclosure.

    If you pick a lighter enclosure then Black UV is simply a color layer and nothing else is needed.

    Got it, thanks
