Funky toggle switch contact?
Just to mention some specific products:
Loctite Plastics Bonder (2-part acrylic) is recommended for ABS and polycarbonate, but not for polypropylene or polyethylene....
I thought I was the last person on the planet to get a smart phone. They are good for travel - I use it more as a GPS than as a phone.
No experience here, but I do know that sound level meter apps are available for as little as free.
Assuming you use a smart phone, that would be one less thing to carry around.
NIOSH has a freebie...
IIRC, that really was the prevailing consensus at the time. With the exception of CRTs, vacuum tube production had ceased in the U.S.
IIRC, that is.
Joe Gwinn says annealing small carbon steel parts is easy.
BTW, my suggestion of tuning the guitar body with a router was meant to be a joke. (Although admittedly not a very funny joke.)
Here's something that would take a miracle to work:
That's good. Because my next suggestion was going to be to "tune" the guitar's body with a router. ;)
Alternate interpretation... "I want this pickup to sound more like a single coil and less like a humbucker."(?)
Here's a suggestion so simple it can't possibly work... but since its easily...
OK, 5% worst case. But even with a 240K volume pot, the error is only 3%. As you say, close enough.
Beating a dead horse:
The error will be higher for an overwound pickup and low value volume pot...
Short answer: A little over 7k. (Assuming the pot is turned to 10.)
Long answer: Rpup = Rjack / (1 - Rjack/Rvol)
I guess your scenario is that you have a Gibson guitar and aren't sure if the...
Just to elaborate, the resistance measured at the jack is:
Rjack = (Rpup x Rvol) / (Rpup + Rvol)
Solving for Rpup (assuming I remember high school algebra):
Rpup = Rjack / (1 - Rjack/Rvol)
This seems to have flown in under the radar, but some of the latest Chromebooks now have native support for Linux. You no longer have to mess with Crouton or GalliumOS. I've got one, but so far have...
Correction: Standard wiring for P pickups coils is in series; the suggestion was to try them in parallel. This makes quite a difference because the inductance of the pair is reduced by about 1/4 and...
What timing! This just arrived in my inbox....
I don't know if it was used in guitars, but insulating "spaghetti" was available in the '60s. My dad had a ton of it in his workshop.
I've never built one, but if you can't tell much difference between them the most sensible choice is to build the simplest circuit. Right?
I guess now would be a good time to try out that new star icon thingy.
I screwed up- meant to post a link to Wikipedia. Its fixed now.
The YT link was Flaco Jimenez & Freddy Fender playing Frosty the Snowman. But I can see how you could get them confused with the...
I don't know Tone Bender from Adam, but it looks like the first thing you have to do is decide which one you want. There are different versions with different circuits - seems mostly ripped off from...
Darn, I was going to guess ball lightning.
Do as I say, not as I do?
You can't possibly be as obtuse as you pretend to be. Read post #46 again. The pot costs 99 cents with FREE shipping. You may have to wait until Jan 7, but that would give you time to improve your...
Are you really saying you are unwilling to spend $1 on this project? Then why are you wasting our time?
If you were to trade by mail, it would cost either the cost of a padded envelope plus 50 cents...
Kewel. I didn't know Tayda sold via eBay. At the Tayda site, the same pot is 50 cents - but there is a $5 minimum order plus shipping cost.
Yea, I noticed that too.
