aqua boy momentary feeback/oscillation switch?
« on: October 15, 2010, 09:41:01 AM »
If I set it up to dissconnect the grounds on the feedback and mix knobs would that work?  or do I need to switch in some resistors of minimum values?

anyone tried this type of mod yet?  (similar to the keeley ibanez ad9)

duh...I read through the wrong thread.  fs.org had some info already.

Hey, I can't find anything detailed about this mod, at least nothing I can really understand. Can someone who's done this please let me know at which points to hook up the switch (and resistor for altering the speed of the ramp...?)

Excuse my noob-ness but would the switch be connected between one leg of R31  and leg 3 of the feedback pot??

I'm searching around for info on aqua boy mods etc... and I get reminded of a thread I started and abandoned.  My bad.   :-[

I'm looking at the schematic and if the feedback pot is being used to dump a variable amount of signal to ground then to my untrained brain I would assume that if you lift that ground then all the signal will come through ala the feedback knob being maxed out. 

if someone wants to correct me or weigh in on this i'd appreciate it.

I would jumper lugs 2 and 3, or possibly switch it in with a pretty small resistor (in the 100's ohm range).
