Took a couple pics of the Pentavocal. I don't know if you can tell too much but then again I don't have any idea what I'm looking at. :lol:

Is that a Rohs model? All the red witch pedals changed completely with rohs compliance.

Here are pictures from my Pentavocal. I see a charge pump in there and it looks like the rotary switch switches between LP or HP filters at the input...

Apologies for the poor quality of the pictures.

This one should be traced! It's really versatile and good sounding:


Can anyone provide better pictures or the parts values?

Thanks for the pictures, but please please please,
If you submit pictures that might help tracing a schematic, don't hesitate to use the attachment function.
It has happened more than once that threads got solved and traced after years of inactivity.

but thanks for contributing still!

Looks like the SMT parts are hand soldered. Interesting.

If that's the case, they "worked on" most of the components, haha.
