Just picked up a Wizard, but have no chimes sound... Can anyone tell me where is this located? I've searched all evening, but can't find it. Sorry but I'm new to EM and this machine is older than me

To the right of the coin door inside the main cabinet.

hmm it's not there... I guess the operator in the past must have removed it
Or was that optional?

The two studs & wingnuts above that extra ( non-stock) black counter held the chime assembly. That counter, connected to the replay knocker must have been used to count earned replays to calculate replay percentage so the op could change replay levels.

I have a wizard also but the two studs arent even there. Nothing damaged on the wood on the inside of that panel.?

Can we call this strange.??

I have a European delivered Wizard as well. Apparently the chimes were never originally fitted to these exported machines. Can't remember the exact reason why but that's what I was told. I've since sourced a chime unit, just haven't fitted mine yet.
Maybe someone else knows the background as to why they left them off?

Lots of time they weren't used in parts of Europe.
Games where a bit cheaper without the chimes.
I know "German" Gottliebs did not have chimes the second half of the seventies.

Wow! no chimes at all??? click, clack, nuthin but whack whack?
was that about the time electronic chimes came out?
that would make sense, if they modded them upon arrival?

They dampened the chimes by sticking a piece of cardboard between the plungers ande chime bars.
And where very happy when the first soundboards where used....

My Wizard had the electornic noisemaker board installed when I bought it- I sourced an original set of chimes and gave the soundboard away- I'm going to have to look tonight to see what the inside cabinet looks like at the chime assembly now....
