BoardWeevil09 - first view

Here's the initial build of the new Weevil for 2009 ----> the BoardWeevil

Its like a souped-up Postcard and takes in some new design ideas I've been playing with through 2008. My aim has been to create something with the power of previous big Weevils, but which is more easily replicated (to try to meet demand...)

Some notes:
  • Three Oscs with Lo/Hi Ranges with the usual Quasi-ringmod
  • Oscs 2 & 3 can Sync to Osc1
  • Osc1 also has a Light Sensor for pitching (switchable)
  • Power starve for the Weevil-heart - this also has a switchable Light Sensor
  • Balance Control fades between Ring1 (oscs1 & 2) and Ring2 (oscs 1 & 2 & 3)
  • Simple Tone Control
  • Output Level dial feeding a standard 1/4" jack
  • Onboard Mini-Amp
  • 14 body contacts (gold plated!)
  • All Dials are 9mm Alps -- still compact, but much sturdier than the orig. Postcard ones.
Due for release in Jan09.
