Re: is it possible to power the brunswick with a 9v dc adapt

You will need two 9v supplies; the Brunswick uses the 2 9v batteries to produce a +/- 9v supply (e.g. 18v range in total).

Post by Lightman » Sat Mar 09, 2019 7:57 pm

Hey Girls and Guys.

i have moved the LED.

You can open and edit the File with this great Program:

We've designed a full enclosure for the Brunswick which will be coming soon at Thonk - keep your eyes peeled!

Thank you FSS, will keep Thonk on my weekly check list.

I will miss the squeals everytime I pick it up but can live without them :)

Having just ordered my kit, should I wait to assemble (jack/knobs) until I am able to fit your new case to them?

I have connected a 9v wall transformer instead of the "right" battery (the one directly connected to the on/off switch)
What should I do to power also the second battery compartment?
looks like the + and - of the two batteries are shorted together...is this possible?
thx

Any news on a date for the case and will the case be designed to enclose the battery simulator kit?

I wouldn't worry about waiting - all the cases we've fitted here have fit perfectly to the bareboards.

Thonk have all the parts for the case, as well as the PCBs for the BattSim - it might be worth getting in touch with them. Last time we asked, they were waiting for stock of the voltage converter on the BattSim. And yes, the case is designed to fit both the Brunswick and the BattSim board.

We'd advise against it as it could damage your wall wart supplies if they aren't isolated. What we'd suggest is to wait for the Battery Simulator kit to go up for sale at Thonk :hihi:

Thonk have confirmed that they are waiting on a back order part for the BatSim but currently hope to have the case, BatSim and Portland available in around 4 weeks.

You who have built and played it: How is it with keeping in tune, tracking and temperature stability?
I was thinking about buying a pair of synth voices to play together, and this sounded really good and like an interesting option, but just if they can play in tune with each other. Thanks in advance for input!
