Question Sustainer upgrades

Hello folks,

I was wondering, is it possible to add the Fernandes Sustainer FSK401 Board features to the FSK101 Board? I mean, like the intensity pot, and mixed mode switch.
Also I wanna remove the switches from the board and add some wire, so that I can change their position, would this be possible? If so, how would it be wired?

Re: Sustainer upgrades

Very easily done. The boards are identical. The solder pads for the intensity pot are present, and the switch is simply a case of switching the stock one for an on/on/on one.
Can't recall offhand the best pot value to use for the intensity pot though.

To relocate the switches you just unsolder them and solder the wire to the solder tabs on the switch and the holes on the board. Wiring is straight 1:1, you just copy the layout of the switch.
