Atari 2600 This Mod ROCKS

Postby jhark » Tue Jun 05, 2018 7:19 pm

It's a Gatari 2600 Well this is a tough one, It took a lot of work and measuring to get the neck slot correct and the tail piece to the proper position so the tone is correct. It still has lots to be done, and is a work in progress. It will have two groups of three pots, the front three control the tone and volume of the pickups the rear three (not yet installed) will be LED lit graphic EQ and only active with certain effects cartridges (see pic). I have temp wired it to test and it sounds great. I'm in the process of designing each cartridge, its tough cramming all the components on such a small board. Oh the switch on the side edge switches between bridge, neck or both pickups. Each cartridge will give the Gatari 2600 a completely different sound and of course you can always have more pedals on the floor.

WOW!! That is truly one of the most AWESOME projects that I have ever seen! I would love to hear it in action...especially in the Jimmy Hendrix/Page modes. :shock: :D :D

I will take it to a pro and video them testing it, since I can build it...but can't play very good. This project might be what inspires me to learn how to play guitar. Thanks for the nice comments...

There are tons of Atari 2600 consoles around, and this is a one off let's face it. Can you honestly imagine any one else even wanting to try this?

It's like the guy that tuned his PS1 into a model of Midgar from FF7, it's amazing and people would want to buy it, but I really can't imagine it starting a spate of people spending hours modding their console the same way, it's most likely a one off.
