Are you saying the Sustain Module is different from the Supasustainer?
Might well be the case, but please share your evidence.
We can split the thread.

Victory Electronics - Sizzle Tone

this was posted in a facebook group, no info, no source.

Usual Google Fu nah work -- not even a picture of the unit. But there is a lot of info to go by... name of company, location.

Re: Analogman - King of Tone [traced]

Ok. Just double checked the diodes with my continuity test and confirmed that they aren't linked in the middle that's my bad. Though it shouldn't make a difference. Thanks so much for reporting back. Anybody tracing a unit, please make pictures and if there is a serial, mention it on the schematic....
