The great "I'd like to see the guts of" thread

All about modern commercial stompbox circuits from Electro Harmonix over MXR, Boss and Ibanez into the nineties.

Interesting approach which leaves 2 questions with sub-questions:
1) The classic was traced years ago. a) How was this done (accuracy) and, but, b) why do you doubt this trace?
2) What will X-rays give you that the above question does not answer? Since they'll provide, wuth a lot of hard work, a compomnent-value-less schem.

If I ever get acces to X-ray stuff this is indeed a very good example of a device to start with.
Sorry. Plain out of planes.

Hi Dirk, I really admire your work and appreciate your abundant schematic collection. I don't know if the schematics available have been verified, but without a tangible image to compare it to I don't see how it could be. How was that schematic or revision 12 traced in the first place?

I have one of these that I could pull apart.
FYI; it is very underwhelming / Doesn't sound very good at all.
As much as I dig ADA gear; I can't recommend this one.


Jimosity, that would be awesome!

Despite it's not exactly a modern stompbox (it's a "boutique") I'd like to see some guts of the Heavy Electronics Radio Havana.

I would like to see:
AMT Electronics Little Loudmouth Volume LLM-2
Ibanez SD9M
vintage and reissue EH Small Clones to see what specific circuit differences there are (if any). Neo Clone as well.
EH Tone Tattoo
EH Epitome
Polytune
Maxon ds830 distortion master

I'm working on reverse engineering the Aria Jet Phaser from the few pictures that are available on the net. I have a pretty good handle on it but there are a few areas that I could use some help on.

I don't have very good details of the LFO section or the Bias section.
Aria made a few phasers such as the RE-100 Phase Shifter and the RE-90 Super Phaser which I'm almost certain would contain similar sections.

From what I've read there are other models of phasers that should be very close as well.
Hi-Max Phase Shifter
Arbiter Soundhouse Super Phaser
Vox Super Phase

Does anyone out there have any of these phasers? If you do could you please post some pictures of the LFO and Bias sections?

I would appreciate the help!

In fact I'd be glad to see the guts, find a schematic and probably a layout too of avery very rare thing, enough rare o never having seen a single one unit for sale, neiher guts nor schematics :
- the 360 Systems Frequency Shifter.
his baby was used by John McLaughlin at the glorious Mahavishnu Orchestra era. Anybody listening to this can't miss the effect : it's one of the maddest guitar sounds you ever heard in your life wen it's used.
I've heard that when there's one for sale, it goes very very expensive

Would LOVE to see how they incorporated the 3207 into that ElecLady circuit.

Schematic anyone?? :popcorn:

Looks much the same as we do... 4013 in to 4049, guess the blue banded diode is a zener working as a shunt regulator for the 3207.

Just use the mad bean current lover schematic.

You can ask the schematic of that from Guyatone; I have it for a repair job a while ago.

The pedal didn't impess me btw..... very boring sounding. Do not know about the V though!
