Re: Thunder IA

Thanks for the help...

Managed to wire it up :) so its working to spec passively but not sure how the active circuitry is wired ... the active tone pot is wired but I can't work out how it sits with the passive wiring :-? ?

Any ideas?

To date I have not received any diagrams other than drawings of the Skylark preamp section. You might glance at that to determine if it is close to what you have in the Thunder.

As far as setting up a Westone site goes, that sounds great! I am not sure, but I would guess you were already aware of the Westone site that now exists HERE. You might try dropping him a note to see if he would be willing to collaborate with you. There's been little activity there for quite a while.

I have refrained from covering them since He has done a pretty good job, and the Electra Westones Mike also has covered. More importantly, I already have my hands full with the labels I am already covering and will probably be old and grey (moreso than I am now) by the time it is close to finished. :o

You are welcome to use the info I do have available and all I ask is that you credit the source and possibly a link back here.

The only things I have here regarding Westone are the catalog scans and this forum.

'Got a friend who was given a WESTONE DYNASTY (don't know if there are different models)
So, the problem is that the guy who owned the guitar before him intended to re-paint it (Hu!) and he dismissed all pickups !!

It seems I have the same problem...

UP !
