Boss bypass mod

Got a dead Boss DS-1 on the bench for repair and modification. I just had to replace the fried opamp and it was up and running. I was also told to mod the pedal in anyway I liked. Ever since I made the T-rex Mudhoney 2:nd stage mod the idea has been there to try something similar on a Boss or Ibanez pedal. So here it is on a Boss DS-1 pedal, the feature to choose a latching or momentary bypass.

Colorsound Flanger

Now here’s a rare pedal I got on the bench, a Colorsound Flanger.

However in a no working condition, Looking at the guts I’d say there’s some work to be done if it will ever work again.

Beyond repair? Well normally I’d call it electronic junk but looking closer at the circuit board there’s is still one component that makes me want to give it a try, the rare Reticon SAD512D BBD IC.

If anyone sits on a schematic for this pedal and like to share it with me I’d be very happy.
