Got this one from my friend, who has got this from someone for free. Pretty interesting case this is. Some features:
- Made by Colorsound somewhere in early 70’s
- Germanium transistor driven
- Wah-sized metal enclosure
- Volume-, Fuzz- and Treble-Bass (Tone) -knobs. All are interestingly 100K logarithmic.
- Operable only with 9V battery
- Is not working
The connection board is made like a cream cake:
Soldering job is remarkably lame, and most of the connections are suprisingly broken. Actually, it seems that someone has messed with this. Maybe tried to fix this. As there is no even indicator light, this looks like totally dead. The very first thing to do is analyze this, and then clone it. After that I need to hunt down some NOS-parts, and try to fix this. To be continued.
I handed this to Miro, who was ready to buy this disregarding the price. I bartered this with two MXR pedals. Am I totally crazy?
Firstly, this was totally dead, so I wasn’t able to request the eBay price anyhow. Secondly, I owe him some. And thirdly, what’s the price for seeing someone become so overwhelming happy as he did 🙂
After a while he got this working without changing anything but the switch.
