Economy Hasbro Sound Card Tutorial
« on: April 06, 2009, 08:42:22 AM »
Here is a tutorial I made over at TCSS on how to wire an Economy version Hasbro sound card.  (Yes, I am talking about the cheap hasbro.)  Here is the link and I hope it helps:  http://forums.thecustomsabershop.com/showthread.php?t=7587

I like the new name, "economy soundcard", ...I think I'll use that terminology as well. thanks ;)

I don't use them much, ...but they are good boards for customers looking to keep the price down on a saber, ....or good to use while waiting on higher end sound boards too.  :)

We have a slew of these boards left and are looking at using them in a low cost line of sabers to take to a convention.

Thanks for the refresher course in them.  8) 8)

Those are the cards I used to build my first two sabers. They work well and I have had not one problem with them. They are great for the low coast saber.
Yeah, I got the Force! Come get you some.

Thanks Rhyen that's a great tutorial...the "economy" 'toy' saber soundboards are probably the most available right now and imo they will always be especially useful for 'gift' or 'lender' sabers; a young child or 'casual' SW fan won't know or care about how many user configurable soundbanks a Crystal Focus has but they will be WOWed by the "ooooh cool" glowing blade and that familiar 'Woooshummmmm' and may become the serious saberfans [or are we 'addicts'? lol] of tomorrow.

I agree with the others, this is a GREAT help for all those who are new to the saber scene and would like to construct a lightsaber with sound, but without the putting a dent in their wallets.  ;D

Thanks.  After all the tutorials and people having patients with me asking lots of question at TCSS, I wanted to contribute anyway I could.

Hey Rhyen, would you mind posting the pictures to here or PMing me to them? I was not able to access them at TCSS since I didn't have an account but I am very much interested in your tutorial :-).

So I have an old 1994 Kenner/ Hasbro ROTJ Luke Card(well the whole toy really) and it looks way to complicated for a first build.  Has anyone use any of these for builds or should I just toss it?    Oh it does in fact still work, I just tested it tonight.
