Drewsonics Sherlock {SHure LEvel LOC clone]

Post by supafuzz » Thu Dec 24, 2020 7:27 am

Hi
I just found my old Drewsonics Sherlock in the attic and would love to get it working. Does anyone know how much power it needs?
That would be a good place to start. I can post pics later. Or maybe I remove the circuit board and start again. I don't remember if this thing ever worked and that's why it was probably orphaned.
thanks

Even when they're working, you'll ask yourself if they're broken.

I think it wants a 9 Volts DC supply. The most common mod for them was to add a big electrolytic capacitor (1000 uF, 25V) across the power rails at the input, to soak up some 60 Hz hum.

It also operates at mic level - you patch it in between the mic and preamp. Line level signals murder it.

I had all the paperwork from mine, scanned it and sent it to Peterson Goodwyn. I don't know if he ever got it put up.

If it is a 'faithful' replica of the Shure Level Loc, it is a mic level device. If you want something in the family that can be used on an insert its LevelOr time.

Also, hello to the El Harley!

The schematic is in the LevelLoc manual.
