Broken CY-12r/c part 2

So following on from my last post (Broken CY-12r/c part 1) the conductive paint turned up…

So I took the cymbal apart again…


As you can see the track for the top section of the sensor switch has separated and with it pulled the conductive strip away..

Using the conductive paint…

…I painted on a new conductive ‘track’…

…I used a bit of tape to insulate the new track from the lower section to prevent miss-triggers and job done…

I used a hot air gun to try and carefully warm up what was left of any bonding agent left on the sensor which worked a little but to be sure I secured the sensor with tape…

Put it back together and gave it a test (I actually did a quick test and continuity check before refitting the rubber cover just to be sure 🙂 )

…works a treat 😀

I dedicate this one to Daz… you have a lot to learn my young padawan… well… I am the Modfather (apparently lol)
