HH electronics - Clockwork Concubine  [schematic]

I could have bumped an older topic but prefer a new one.
The concubine has been discussed but it does not seem that people have hands on experience playing the thing. Not so strange since it needs to be connected to an HH amplifier (which I don't have) in order to be powered and get signal.

I've reversed one but expect more errors to show up. The design topology is everything but conventional, as an example.

However, here's the job so far. It's a flanger and uses a SAD1024. Other than that there's little similatities to the Mistress.

Great! :D

So can you tell me how to make an adaptor cable for audio in, audio out and power? :D

(if I can find a connector that fits...)

I think I have the actual HH schematic for this. I bought a service manual a couple of years ago when I got my Clockwork Concubine.

I could use information about the pins in that cable if you know something about that...

Hmmm, forgot to reply.

Searched the amp but I can't differ it from the outside. When my guitarist uses my new build amp I'll check out his HH!

No clue... The Clockwork Orange is the only HH product I have.

Not the best quality, but this should help. This came from my H&H Service Manual.

Thanks Ron!!
Poor quality scan indeed but with my drawing and the real thing here I should be able to fill in the blanks. Much appreciated!

Just scored one on eBay! When it arrives I'll take some gut shots and try to work out some kind of interface box.

Here are some innards.

This pedal is quite tricky to dismantle...

It works. I think the cable is the original one, too.

Sort of OK, but much prefer the E.Mistress. Would be interesting into a valve amp - there's a line out on the IC100 so could try that. It does a kind of rotary speaker thing, the metallic stuff, but not much else. The reverb switches on and off ok but again the reverb itself is so-so

The amp would be ok for spiky rhythm work, which is why I guess Bolan and Wilko Johnson liked them.

Has anyone here figured out the voltages on these things?

I got one over 10 years ago and started looking for the schematic, emailed the maj electronics people but never heard back. I had given up until I saw this thread.

I think it runs on 18v. I modded one some 8 years ago, but i dont remember the voltage for sure.

I found the schematic for the HH VS Musician that has the effects DIN connector.
Looks like it's feeding the pedals +-48v. Does that sound familiar?
If so I'm afraid that's the end of this project...
