Tornipulator Wiring Diagram

Post by 81silverburst » Wed Apr 07, 2021 11:17 am

Hello All,
I’ve seen a few conversations and posts elsewhere, but I can’t seem to find a decent or straightforward ‘Tornipulator’ wiring diagram. I have some idea of how I would incorporate it into my my Jag build, but if anyone could share any pictures, diagrams, or drawings relative to this setup in a Deimel, Koll, Ronin, Jag, or JM, I would really appreciate the info.
Thanks!

Thank you, bodhi ! I have sifted through this thread a few times before, but I’m still seeking out any other schematics or interpretations that members might be able to share.

Well, one version is here: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index ... t-29240487

It's basically
- killswitch: connect output jack lead to output jack ground
- alternatively, if using a guitar input jack, pick one with a n/c (no connection) lug and set it up so that if there's no jack there the wire to the momentary switch should be grounded through the n/c lug
- 60 cycle hum: disconnect output jack ground, eg. have floating ground in the guitar which should cause hum from the circuitry to the output
- harmonica microphone switch: connect output of this to output jack via a toggle switch

All switches should be momentary spdt.
