| br>we have uncovered a small stash of PCBs and Bridechamber MOTM panels for the TH Magic Smoke Sheboygan VCO...
however unless Magic Smoke magically re-surfaces, or TH can be persuaded to move the rights away from Magic Smoke and to someone else (Fonik?) these may be the last of their kind
the last ones we have are listed on our store, in full kit and pcb+panel+bracket bundles... we hope these find a good home on someone's MOTM system!

| br>Oh, is Magic Smoke MIA?
I saw these on your site a couple weeks ago, which inspired me to look at the Magic Smoke page again & the different TH PCBs.
I have & enjoy all of Thomas' books (except for the recent-ish PICAXE one, which didn't seem relevant to pick up), but have never got around to building any of his designs... br> br>
| br>I did an evaluation of this PCB back in 2011 and documented it on my website. I've used this VCO quite a bit since then. I did find a lot of crosstalk in the noise and isolated the negative supply to solve it. Later I discovered you can eliminate the negative supply completely. I don't know if this mod was ever incorporated into the PCB. Photos and my panel design are at TH-101 “Sheboygan” 566-based VCO Module
