Roland AP-7 Jet Phaser
« on: June 11, 2020, 10:07:46 AM »
Hi gang

I've been looking for an over the top phaser for ages and recently discovered the old Roland AP-7 Jet Phaser. I'd love to build one but can't seem to find a reliable PCB or layout for it. Just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of one?

Thanks as always.

I have built it and it works great.

Amazing, thank you!

That is one complicated looking circuit! Looks like there are two boards, the main one and a smaller one. Is that correct?

Yes, one for the main phasing and lfo, and the small one for the mixing and preamp.

It's one of those effects that gets old after about 5 minutes.  That said, I'd still love to build one.  Be a good excuse to start an Isley Brothers cover band.

I can answer yes to both of those questions  ;)

Thanks for the link. This might be the winner!

Is that a three headed monkey behind you?

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.
