last year i got a lot of help from you guys regarding an ebow circuit design. i ended up building a slightly modified 18v LM386-4 circuit like this ::
its an "electronic bow" for strings, basically a pickup and driver coil that feedback through a string, making it sustain a note for as long as the circuit is turned on. i made a micro-controlled electromagnetic harp that has 13 circuits like the above, switching strings on and off....
the project was great, but now i want to improve the circuit, and make it more powerful.
any thoughts on the TDA2030? i have it laying around, but don't really have the proper knowledge to implement it into a working design....
the LM386 distorted the signal a lot, and was only returning around 9v into the driver coil - resulting in very slow attacks on the tones of the string, or just no response at all.
the circuit needs to be compact to fit inside the new instrument, and not too expensive... powerful, for better response and less distortion.
any ideas? ANYTHING is helpful, my knowledge is limited, but im resilient as hell.
