• The Phantom - 1541 Drive Enhancement

For the first time anywhere since 1986, and available in very limited quantities, now you can own your very own pre-assembled and tested "Phantom".  The Phantom is a 1541/C64 drive enhancement that was available in the UK in the mid 80's.  It was only available for a short time, and has long since thought to have been lost forever.

The installation video can be found here: << 8-Bit Resurgence Phantom Installation Video >>

This is an accurate reproduction of the original and comes to you complete, tested, and ready to use.  What you do need to provide is: a Commodore 64 computer, 1541 long-board disk drive and one additional 6522 IC.  These are very commonly available chips, and are in most enthusiasts parts collection.  If you however need the extra 6522 chip, it is available as an option with this board.

Every board sold, is tested with a brand new W65C22 as the additional 6522 required by the board but it is not by default included.  If you're unsure whether you have a working IC to put in place of this, I highly recommend you add this to the order.  It is available to you as an option.

Instructions on how to use/install this board can be found here: The Phantom GitHub.  Additionally, you can find an installation video on our youtube channel << 8-bit Resurgence >> at the following link << Phantom Installation Video >>

The 6522 offered is the W65C22N6TPG-14 "N"version which is compatible with Commodore systems.  

Due to the weight of this product, an over-weight surcharge must be charged for all destinations.  The amount vary's by destination.
