Re: My take on the CGS / Serge Programmer

Maybe I’m a bit obsessive, but I want mine to be the same as a Finlay-built one, unless, for instance, someone finds parts that fit perfectly, and are somehow ‘better’. So, I’m most likely to get pots/knobs from Thonk, bananas from Reichelt, pushbuttons from Rapid. I’m pretty certain the Taiway swit...

Re: My take on the CGS / Serge Programmer

re: USA parts ordering So far, the banana jacks, pushbuttons, pots/knobs appear to be the only parts we need to order from across the sea. (unless somebody else has found good USA sources). Significant savings on shipping and quantity pricing can be realized by ordering 3 or more sets from each vend...

Re: My take on the CGS / Serge Programmer

I’ve never done a group buy, but I’ll wait a few days and see if there’s more interest. I’d prefer to keep it simple, 36xRED, 4xBLACK. Maybe another black for ground on boat. Similar to the 7375 panels, we in USA also have trouble finding 6mm D-shaft knobs, though the pots are on Mouser. Thonk is sh...

Re: My take on the CGS / Serge Programmer

BANANA JACK USA GROUP BUY Any interest in this? I just ran some numbers for buying the jacks from Reichelt in Germany. Here are my estimates, including $10 for USPS shipping to final US destination. 1 set (40 jacks ) about $56 ($1.40 each) 4 sets (160 jacks) about $103 (.64 each) (+$10 USPS = $35.60...

Re: My take on the CGS / Serge Programmer

I came home after a couple weeks absence to find this on my doorstep. SMD done by Finlay, I am looking forward to this bringing some life to my 73-75 panels!

Has anybody in USA found a no-compromise way around ordering the jacks from Europe or UK?

You should take the time to figure out what you’re doing wrong with solder wick. It’s very useful.

Re: My take on the CGS / Serge Programmer

Ordered. Looking forward to using this with my Homebuilt and Voice. Does anybody know a US source for these banana jacks? Mouser has the cinch/johnson/emerson jacks (sockets) galore. Thats where I get all mine at least. If you're looking for cables, Modular Addict has some cheap decent bananas, if ...

Re: Buchla love/hate

I’m just thinking out loud here, nobody should take this as anything but early morning musings. I agree, in some cases we are willing to pay more for a product than the parts cost would suggest. But in adjusting that multiple, a company is also able to affect the volume of sales. Generally speaking,...

Re: 73-75 Serge panels from Zthee

Pin 6 is the REMOTE control pin, less than 1.2v (IIRC) on pin 6 disables output. So, that’s not it the problem.

Sounds like, maybe, your Traco is broken.

Re: 73-75 Serge panels from Zthee

I'm using a Traco THN 15-2423WI instead of the THN 15-2423 which was out of stock when I ordered everything. It looks compatable when I compare the data sheet but I can't get the PSU to work properly (less than 1V on both +/- 12V and nothing on the +6V). I desoldered the Traco and connected it dire...
