It obviously doesn't contain a schematic. The point of posting that is that it offers something different. Sorry that is not appreciated.

The link I posted is a service manual which obviously contains no schematic. So why compare the two in the first place? As as I said, these are different things to be appreciated in a complementary/supplementary way, not as some competition on who can post the best schematic or whatever.

If any further errors are present, please advise. I will correct them and add bypass circuit.

Just modding my TS9DX.
In my pedal, C120 (Mode +) is electrochimic 2.2uF (just like in Turbo mode)

Thanks for all the info.

I just pulled apart my TS9DX to compare it with a stock TS9 which I have modded for a friend.
I also wanted to know how they did the switching between modes
and here are the values in mine :

Stock TS9DX:
the 4.7k resistor is unchanged in all modes

TS9-mode:
47nF (.047uF) + 2 x Si-diodes (Capacitor is marked 473, EIA code shows this as 47nF)

+mode:
220nF (0.22uF) + 4 x Si-diodes

hot-mode:
1uF + 2 red LED + 100kin parallel with the LEDs

Turbo-mode:
2.2uF + no diodes


The Drive pot is a dual ganged pot, I suspect they used it that way because they already had the parts in stock.
As used in the Super Tube Screamer.
(The one with two JRC4558 IC chips)

Makes sense... :wink: (The error came from some merging of topics).

yes. I have dug through a ton of websites and ebay etc ordered some 100k pots from a seller that the pic looked close but i just got it in the mail today and it is basically just a standard mini-pot.

On the previous page , start from the first post of this thread
no search required .
I'd never seen a real TS9 DX schematic , But Jack Deville drew the one here , just as good
which really the only main [ only ? ] difference from a TS9 is the switch & diode /cap combinations

OK, great! But, how do I figure out which diodes match what modes. It's clear that "LED 1" and "LED 2" go with the "hot mode". Can someone clarify the following:
D101 & D102= ________ mode
D111, D112, D113, & D114.... which are paired with which mode?
Thanks

So, my TS9dx isnt functioing, no result when switch is pressed. I began testing the power and noticed that across the indicator led the voltage dropped by 1.5 volts to 7.4 or something like that. Is this my issue? Should i change my led?

I'd say try cleaning the " micro " switch first , and maybe replace it [ it's a little switch that the pedal depresses ]
I'll post my DX-9 but it's a modded one
