MODIFIED FOR SAMPLING BY SONICCOUTURE

Clav

Hohner D6s are getting quite rare, because of their delicate, high-maintenance mechanical nature. Over a 12 month period we extensively restored and then modified our D6, which was a nice example in decent working order before we even started. But to get these instruments functioning absolutely perfectly is a real labour of love.

As well as wanting to get it sounding perfect, we also needed to make a few custom modifications. To model the internal setup of the instrument, we added a direct XLR output to record each pickup separately, and an input to the D6 preamp in order to capture the EQ response.
The switching added for this output can be seen in the pictures above.

Clav

Sampling each pickup separately and bypassing the preamp means that the architecture of the Soniccouture Clav is very creatively flexible. As well as routing both pickups into the preamp as on the traditional instrument, it is also possible to have a clean, direct output, and to vary the level and panning of each pickup independently. The traditional Clav rocker switches then control the phase of the pickups.
