After doing the 18 volt mod to my Ibanez and hearing the night and day difference, I want to now do it to the EMG's of my Schecter C1 Hellraiser FR. But, having two coil taps, it is nearly impossible to fit another 9 volt in the control cavity. I really do not want to rout a hole for a dual battery compartment. any ideas on how I can accomplish the mod? Here are some pics (don't mind the cardboard trem cover; its a template for a custom cover)







Cliff notes: I know what the 18volt mod is, I dont have any room for another battery, how can I still accomplish the mod?

Take out some springs and fit it in the trem compartment?

I can't. its a floating trem and I need all four springs to counterbalance the 10's I use.

Reality check: You've answered your own question. Either MAKE more room, or shut up.

Then why didn't you say so?

I had a similar problem with my Yamaha Pacifica 521. It's H/S/H, all EMG(B:81,M:Single,N:85). I wanted a push/pull so I could go between 9 and 18 volts. I could get two batteries in the compartment, but couldn't put the cover back on. To solve the problem I built a voltage doubler circuit. It's built on a very small board, so it fits great, and runs off of one battery.

Here is the schematic and info: http://diystompboxes.com/pedals/vdbl.html

Here is the layout I used to build it: http://www.aronnelson.com/gallery/main.php/v/TheBigMan-Layouts/voltagedoubler.gif.html

*note* The schematic shows a switching circuit that isn't in the layout. They put that in so that you can have seperate grounds for your audio signals, and the chip to cut down on line noise. Since I used the max1044 chip (more expensive) I tried it without the switch circuit, and I haven't heard any additional noise.

thanks. the voltage doubler looks like something I might do.
