Thunder 1-A Bass pcb

Post by paulski71 on Sat May 28, 2016 5:40 pm

Hi!

Was wondering if anyone had either the circuit itself or photos of the board (both sides) for
the thunder1-a bass ? Also a spare ferrule/bushing as one of mine has corroded and been minced with a pair of pliers
I have an original brass bridge to trade aswell! Smile
Will post some picks after I get past the 10 posts!

Thanks! P

Hi there, Paul...

... sorry, I can't help; I've not even seen a Thunder bass!, Hopefully someone will happen along to help soonish but if not, I'm betting there are boost circuit PCBs available from electronics stores that would do the trick, and the ferrules: just replace all four with new ones off the interwebs as they cost pennies, eh!!

Hi again Paul. I answered you PM before I saw this post. Laughing
GFS sells a few electronic boost and mod circuits you might find interesting, and they're in the middle of a Memorial Day weekend sale right now. Mod Boards Active Preamps

Hi Guys!

Westbone! amazing I have been days looking for this I don't know how you found it but thankyou! Smile
Barry, if I lose the ebay bid I will be sure to check them out thanks!
Corsair, I did order a set but they didn't fit, feel like a bit of an idiot really, but am new to this. Been playing for 20 years but never a westone and well, its got me totally hooked! Smile ... were the tuners manufactured by matsumoto?

Thanks again! P

Do you mean the tuner hexagon nut that holds the tuner?

I'll have one somewhere or a complete tuner.

Oh, I'm sorry; I thought you meant the string ferrules in the back of the body that the strings anchor in!? 

The OEM tuners are probably Gotoh, and most styles are still available from Gotoh today, and in both standard and locking versions.

If you lose the auction don't worry, the seller has a few more units he'll list when he knows what they'll sell for, save that seller in your ebay. 
These pcb's are the active gain version for the thunder 6 string,  not sure what changes need to be made for bass....... Damian?

I'll have a look, give it a few days. If not the nut it'll have to be a complete tuner as I won't break up a good tuner.
What side is it? EA or DG
