Also more gut shots of the jason becker distortion pedal. i have the ones that have been posted online. wondering if anyone else could provide better shots

cheers
Here is a gut shot, but it doesn't really tell you that much. Nice build quality though. I got it from this page: http://www.jimdunlop.com/blog/inside-st ... -cry-baby/ which has some info about the pedal. I would love to see a better shot of it though!

yeah i saw this pic agers ago, but wasnt sure if bonamassa was talking about dunlop never using the halo inductor that makes it different from all the rest or not.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE GUTS OF THE ZAKK WYLDE CHORUS??? anyone have one? i know it looks exacly like the analog chorus, but with some tweaks. Can't get a schematic for either of them.

Does anyone happen to have pictures of the crybaby octave wah from
The early 90s? Gcb-95O. Would be amazed if anyone has gut shots of this pedal. I have seen
This wah knocking around once in a blue moon. Seems rare to come by.

I have the Mold Spore schematic. PM me with your email, and I'll send it to you. I also have the pedal, but no gutshots on hand. Fan-fuckin'-tastic wah. I love it. It sits comfortably nestled next to my Ring Stinger clone.

Cheers,
Dino
No matter how many times I cut it, it`s STILL too short!

Anyone got or seen any gutshots of the new Whammy V? I just wanna see how the bypass switch is incorporated. I'd like to see if I could hack it to add a momentary switch to it.

I'd like to see the guts of the earthquaker's devices bit commander. It's an amazing -2 -1 +1 oct fuzz and looks like it's all analog (you can see a small gut pic on a youtube vid and there are 8pin ICs a transformer and some diodes for the oct/up).
Thanks!

Perhaps some sort of tweaked version of the Pearl octaver?

Anyone has the insides of a Zinky Master Blaster? Should be a FET driven clean boost pedal that should have a nice tone knob. No idea but I'd love to peek inside.

I have one of these that I could pull apart.
FYI; it is very underwhelming / Doesn't sound very good at all.
As much as I dig ADA gear; I can't recommend this one.

I request that a sansamp classic owned by a radiologist create hi-res x-ray images of the heart of the sansamp circuit that is sandwiched in between two inch white squares sealed in epoxy. Then we can get accurate verified schematics traced once and for all.
