Vox 847 Castledine Board Project

Postby ryanm74 » 13 Oct 2016, 00:41

Hello, this is my first post and I hope I am posting in the correct section. I have a Vox 847 wah that I got fairly cheap, and it had this Castledine board installed. It works, and sounds good, but a couple of things I would like to change.

The first thing is making it true bypass. I have an appropriate switch (Dunlop ECB035 DPDT, not pictured) for doing it, but I don't know how to attach it properly to this board.

Second thing is that I would like to add a dc power port. It looks to me like this board already has the diode and filtering added to make that easy, but I don't really know where to attach the wires to the board.

I would appreciate any help I can get.

Just wanted to follow up on this. Yesterday I went to the Casteldine website. There are pages there explaining exactly how to do the wiring for the true bypass. I swear they were not there when I posted this. :lol: :lol:

I am still not quite positive how to wire in the dc adapter plug, so I would appreciate any help on that I could get.
