Turning reverb and chorus off on x100

Post by TONY » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:44 pm

Hello I am new to this place,thanks for the invite!

Does anyone know how to modify a Rockman x100 so both the chorus AND reverb are deactivated? (off and out of the circuit completely)

I understand I need to open the unit up

This has been driving me crazy..I really need the x100 DRY..for recording

Thanks a million!

You might consider finding an Ultralight or Soloist. You can disable the effects on those. There is also the Ace family, but the noise might be a problem for what you are doing.

Hi Thanks for that but you are right..i have the ace series..far to noisy for my use..its a shame becuase its a nice circuit they are up for sale if anyone wants them :)

i dont have the time to wait for another type of rockman,in any case the x100 sounds better than the others

Surely there is a very simple mod to just disable the effects on an x100? Anybody?(i have looked online high and low but no info)

Def Leppard and ZZTOP did it :)

If you put the mode switch to "Chorus Off" and remove resistors R204 and R209 it should also disconnect the reverb (echo) signals.
