Latest update on my pedalboard.

Finally got the Saturnworks A/B switch I needed to toggle between the EHX "9" pedals and replaced the Morley Volume with a smaller-footprint Vox Volume.   :thumb-up:  The pedalboard wiring schematic is linked in my signature.

Really like those graphics you came up with for that Quad switch!   :thumb-up:

The Viper just isn't nearly as easy to do some tube-rollin' with as a rack unit. 

If anyone was to do some modding to the Viper (very debatable, as some would consider it a violation of a rare amp) I'd definitely suggest moving the tubes to the outside of the chassis to make it easy to swap tubes.  Hey I have a great idea how to accomplish that mod without defacing or devaluing the amp.....   >:D

Awesome Dante!

Hmmm....maybe we should somehow see if the new ADA company can reissue the Viper combo amp.   :thumb-up:

Yeah that chassis design is a bit weird when you're used to seeing the normal rack preamp boards.  But it all seems to fit together and make sense somehow.

Baldwin tubes, huh.  Never heard of those.  Obviously rebranded; can you see if there is any of the original printing under that?  I had a bunch of Wurlitzer tubes that sounded great and were actually rebranded RCA tubes (made in USA circa 1960-63).   Remember there's very few actual tube factories in the world still in production.

I'd definitely want that!

Just wanted to send a quick shout out to our beloved MJMP. Where would we be without him? Probably buying every remaining ADA preamp that still functions.

Thanks for sharing your overwhelming abundance of knowledge about everything ADA, and for being so dang willing to help everybody figure out what's wrong with their gear. You sir, are a SAINT.  :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

Hear, hear!  :beer:  :cheers: :beer:
Thank you MJMP!!

You guys are not going to believe this...but... you can use a regular ADA Quad switch as a pedal for this amp!!!!

Just for shits and giggles, I plugged my Quad switch into the amp. It was set on toggle, not momentary, and the four switches were changing channels. However, they would also automatically turn on the boost. With some trial & error, I figured out that if you set switches 1&3 to momentary, and 2&4 to toggle, you can switch channels with one button and turn the boost on/off with the other button. HOW FRICKEN COOL IS THAT?

Now, I'll buy another Quad switch and rip out the innards to put it into a 2-button housing I already have.

Another Win for Dante!    :whoohoo!:    Good thing those Quad switches are fairly plentiful.  Well, at least far more plentiful than the actual Snake Charmer footswitch. always seems to have 3-4 available.

Quick question, for the channel and boost switching on the amp, are these momentary switches or do they latch?

The Channel Selectand Boost buttons are momentary.  The Voicing buttons are latching.

I wonder what a Quad switch could do to help....I have no schematic for that.   :dunno:

aaahhh ! first time I open it, I'd never expect it to be so technical

I thought it was a simple switch

I have pics of the footswitch here:

I'm using something similar to that, Gerry.  Even got it from the same place!  lol

Donner Power Supply

This is for my stompbox pedalboard btw and has been working flawlessly for that.  I still have the shit power supply in the rack for Phantom Power which I will replace, but in a pinch I could just run a lead from this pedalboard supply over to my MidiBuddy too.

Troubleshooting Problems / Re: Got noise???

 I'm still using the exact same generic power supply that I've had ever since first getting into rack gear.  :o
IIRC it was because of something about the original Rolls power supply for the MidiBuddy not fitting into the Phantom Power jack or something silly like that, so I had to buy one of those "one kind fits all" jobs with adjustable voltage and interchangeable tips.  I set it and taped it all up so it wouldn't get changed by accident.

But every once in a while the floorboard resets on me, and now that you mention it.....I bet it's the crap power supply.  :facepalm:

Thanks for that bit of overlooked insight, I'm going to take care of that asap.

I can't believe that Viper came up for sale in such good condition.  Pretty sure they are more rare than the QuadTube, but less rare than the other Sidewinder series amps.  These Vipers are so much better than what you'd normally think a 1x12 combo would be.  They sound AMAZING.  The Crunch on the Green channel was worth it alone, plus it has more tonal selections over in the Red channel.  The VariCab makes it behave like a much bigger amp and cab; engaging it makes the sound just leap out at you.

Damn fine score, Dante. Damn fine score.   :thumb-up:
