    was there any games pre 1980 in which you could change the sound effects from digital to the sounds of em chimes ?
    i hope it makes any sense

    I think you can do that on Stern's Lectronamo (1978). I read there's a switch on the machine to go from one to the other, but maybe not on every model ...

    Not sure I completely understand your question.

    Williams type 1 and type 2 sound boards (found in Sys 3-7 machines) have a switch on them so that you could choose between electronic sounds and chime sounds though the electronic "chimes" are certainly not as rich as real chimes.

    If you want to swap a real chime box into an early SS machine, the only ones that I know of that you could do that with are the Game Plan cocktails with the SSU-1 sound board. Those sound boards could be removed and the GP chime box plugged in directly and work without modification.

    In Gottlieb System 1 games that have an electronic sound board, you can swap out the electronic sound board for a set of actual chimes.

    Bally Viking can. However, it is very simplified and nothing special. Tried it then went right back to original sounds- much better.

    Williams flash 1979.

    Several early solid state games had chimes to begin with, including Joker Poker and Stern Stars. Maybe a few more .
