think anybody could figure out even a partial schematic to start with ?

True,but there is a whole different board wth components and pots underneath the phaser board. I'd say is some sort of buffer. We have to search colorsound phaser schems to see if we can find one with the extra tranny

Hey I saw your post there and was thinking you might want to post in the "Tinkerers" section. It gets a lot more traffic than than the technical data subforum. Just a thought. :hmmm:

Good luck! I hope someone can help you there!

Yo bro,

Looking at the board, it looks like a simplified Mr.Multi 4 stage phase circuit, with the Vocalizer fuzz section jigged in.

Not really anything I would waste any effort on. Your Komrade, and Mr.Multi chained together, probably blows this sucker out of the water.

Cheers,
Dino

I know its all over, but, I think I have found "the circuit". I think its a copy of a MXR Phase 90!
I dunno if that's interesting or disappointing or both :shock:

The "5th" tranny is an output buffer.
