so I grabbed one of these
It sounds really quite good - beyond expectations actually. The build quality is very standard but the casing, presentation and little touches inc the documentation are quite nice additions.
Those knobs look 100% better! It would probably look great with these knobs as well:


Yeah maybe but I feel thats a Klon vibe and its not really EHX, so would mix the metaphor somewhat

You say it sounds good, did the circuit change any?

Found this on the EHX forums

From the KITRAE website resource, it feels like a mix of parts values across various Rams Head iterations.
I couldnt find the Nano Rams Head or JMascis schematics to compare to. It was meant to be the same as those but in thru hole.

Did you change the knobs out after purchase, or did it come like that across the pond?

Good catch. I swapped them out. The hockey pucks had a cheapening effect and the black pops so well.

yeah they should have used the bakolite knobs as a minimum, not the hockey ones.

Did anyone jump on the hype train for this one?

555 units, apparently its thru hole construction. Lazer etched, cute wooden box, velvet bag.
If it is indeed thru hole, the $250 is pretty reasonable

the reissue 1999 stereo big box polychorus uses two BBD lines for the different effects

There is indeed MN3008 for the chorus and double track (slapback delay) effect

If you struggle to find any legit chips let me know Rej, I can square you away

I have a pearl flanger that I decided to rehouse early in my FX building days - seemed easier than repairing it, back then.
Revisiting it on reading here, my original PCB has the MN3101/MN3007 chips and I didnt change them.

very nice

I also did the "no film decal" on my green one

I also dont love the circuit but I do like how janky and shitty it is :P

Thanks for recognising the vero work. Ian

Yep, your drawing matches your schematic.  Don't forget to tie in the string ground.

And for convenience, you could add a ground lug as a tie point somewhere in the cavity, and run leads from it to all the other places that need a ground, rather than daisy-chaining grounds. 

And if you'll be shielding the cavity with copper or aluminum tape for noise reduction, the lug can serve as the connection, just screw it down after you apply the tape.   

cheers for the reminder. I omitted things like the bridge and body earth for clarity. they will be included.

I am however now struggling to draw up how this would be wired, oddly

Does this look right?

Yes, your 2-pot wiring scheme will work as you've drawn it, and will give you the same switching options as the original.

thankyou. I was fairly confident but happy to have a second yes

Open Discussion / Can someone check my wiring? Guitar Series pickups
« on: August 29, 2023, 05:39:17 AM »
Hi

I am endeavouring upon a project to build a Danelectro style guitar - yes, with the plywood and masonite etc.
I have looked at the original Dano wiring and understand how it works. For those unfamiliar, its two single coil "lipstick" pickups with Volume and Tone for each. The pots are stacked dual concentric, there is one 100k/1M stacked pot for each pickup, volume (100k) and tone (1M). The tone cap for the neck pickup is 0.047 uF, and the bridge pickup tone cap is 0.01 uF. The pickup-selector toggle switch is a single pole on-off-on switch, offering the following sounds:
   Bridge pickup alone
   Bridge + neck pickup in series
   Neck pickup alone

The wiring is as such: with the bridge pickup engaged, the neck pickup is shorted out with its hot and ground connected, and the bridge pickup is directly connected to the output. With the neck pickup engaged, the output of the bridge volume pot is connected to ground. In the middle position, both pickups are connected in series.



T ofhe issue is two fold - those type pots are comparatively very expensive, and Dano used custom ones with 100k/1M in the stack. So I cant actually find them and even non-custom ones are more than the rest of the materials for the guitar.
I want to keep the clean "two knob" look but simplify to a master volume and tone, while retaining the series switching which is part of the charm.

Would this make sense in that case?


I can make pedals but wiring guitars gives me a headache, especially understanding series/parallel, coil splits etc.

A spare set of eyes would be welcome! cheers
