So do the active eq and gain use the same circuit and it's just the pots that change the circuits behavior?

Wow, super duper, just when you think you've seen just about everything Westone! Christmas comes early. Very Happy

Now, a request...can someone who buys one of these and is savvy in solid state electronics, document this thing so we can update our archive info going forward? A proper schematic would be great but at least detailed photos + a record of the component markings? The value of caps etc would be extremely helpful to those attempting a repair or build from scratch.

Barry I wouldn't know where to start mate, schematics are hard enough to understand never mind creating one!
I can take as many photos as needed however but I'm not sure they'll be of much use Smile

I understand Pete, perhaps I shouldn't use the term "schematic". More like what we have already but in better detail using photos on which we can add labels.

Like Damian said, the values should be either be written on the components or can be determined via the colour bands.

If you can make some detailed photos we should be able to read the values off the photos. Additionally if you can write them down on a rough positional sketch I think we'd have everything needed for future reference. I or someone else can put it all together for the web site.

Cheers!

I'll have a go when I get some time, I've got one of those natty little clip on macro lens jobbies for my phone, that should get some decent shots.

Excellent!
We appreciate it, and, no rush mate, it's just for future reference eh?

Any still available?

Post by Fitzroy on Tue Sep 05, 2017 12:46 pm

My Thunder 1-A which I have had since new (my very first guitar) just had the active die yesterday. Switch works but no sound when active is turned on. I swapped out the batteries which were pretty fresh but as I feared still no sound when the active is on.

Just found this thread last night and a new board should fix the the issue so let me know if someone still has one for sale. I am located in Texas but also have a relatives in the UK if that is easier to ship to. 

Cheers,

Richard
