Very OG piston Honda v/o tracking?

Post by reignbear » Sun Mar 17, 2019 1:13 pm

I have one of the very early Piston Honda mk1s, with the misdrilled holes and the pitch offset if you turn certain knobs too far or apply too much voltage.

I don’t remember it tracking 1v/oct quite so poorly, but I also don’t remember the last time I put it through a tuner. Right now I’m getting like 3 octaves with the upper and lower ones being out by 20 cents or so in either direction. Does anyone know if this is average? I tried calibrating it, but I couldn’t really get it any closer and I’m always a bit timmed to fiddle with those trimmers too much...

Thanks for the reply! I revisited it last night feeling a bit less exhausted and was able to trim it to track well over a pretty wide range.
