Can anyone tell what this part is or where to get it?
« on: January 23, 2007, 04:58:02 PM »
I wasnt really sure where to get this part or even what it is. Underneath/connected to the board it has 4  connections to the board on the 1st half and then only 2 on the other end that connect to the board.






thanks

Looks like the top of a relay but it's hard to tell.
Can you get a semi side view short of it?
If It's about a half inch tall then I'd say it's a relay switch.
If it says something about 5 or up to 24 volts and has a coil symbol then for sure...

Yup, smells like a relay, I'm looking at a very similiar item on the table right in front of me.

4 pins on one end, 2 on the other... must be a DPST.

A quick Google search for the "Axicom" name in electronic components brings up relays so I would agree with others that it is a relay.

Its actually for a pedal Im planning to clone. This is really the only peiece of the puzzle I cant figure out yet. This is a commercially built fuzz that I liked enough to clone and build just for myself and then sell the original. Is it ethical- I think so since im not planning to sell copies, just keeping the clone for myself. Actually, Its more of an experiment, to see if I can do it. Ive never tried this before- so its kinda a challenge. Im looking over the bottom of the board and using a sharpie and ruler on a piece of copper board. I would think there would be an easier and more accurate way to do this so any suggestions would be appreciated.

So most fuzz pedals have a relay and 3 op amps? hmmmmm

No. I have never seen a fuzz with a relay. Cornish is the only pedal maker I can think of who uses relays.
