The Suspended Chime

The Suspended Chime has two powerful effects in one pedal - chorus and chorus/delay. The Suspended Chime features a blend knob which allows you to go from subtle to lush chorus effect in either set up. Using the selector switch, you can add a 190 millisecond delay to the chorus introducing special depth to your tone. Varying the dry/wet mix can fatten your rhythms or produce a shimmering 12-string sound. The Suspended Chime kit comes equipped with an LED indicator and industry standard 9 volt center negative power jack.

If you look a the schematic, you can see how the toggle switch is selecting the effect in the Belton module. We encourage you to experiment with different selections on your own. The space in the enclosure is pretty tight, so make sure you plan properly before making any modifications.

You can hardwire the ground connections instead of using the switch. Take a look at the schematic for the correct pins to ground.

Hi, I've finally put together my Suspended Chime kit but the output level seems quite low compared to when the pedal is switched off. Is this expected? Or could you help troubleshoot? Thanks, -=Leo

There shouldn't be much difference in volume when switching between the on and off positions. Please check page 15 for the troubleshooting guide. https://www.modkitsdiy.com/sites/modkitsdiy.com/files/media_files/the_suspended_chime_k-977_instructions_1.pdf

This pedal uses terminal strips for point to point wiring so no PCB is required.
