    It was surprising to me when Rick said that piezos held auditory superiority over magnetic pickups; given that most people think of them as weak and tinny - at least, they are when not used properly....

    I used to have a Washburn bass that was all piezo. It had the strip under the bridge assembly, and each individual saddle had a piezo button epoxied into a recess on the bottom. The tiny wires...

    What amazes me about acoustic guitars, is how they and produce such a wide range of tones; as well as how that sound can further be varied simply by your location within it's sound field. Microphone...

    Maybe quantify was the wrong word to use; since there is no "quantity" to be measured. I guess we aren't counting apples here. I'll come back and edit my post after I get me some more wordy word...

    Who here isn't learning?? At any given moment? All of us are here to learn and share. It's a discussion - not a lecture. If you think I am wrong - tell me how and tell me why, so that I and...

    ^^ as is this.

    Why not say something contributing instead? Since when is eliminating variables that can skew your results a bad thing?

    Although the test is not without it's merits - I think it would have been best if you'd gone about it a different way. The way you wrote it up, seems to neglect the possibility of winding...

    I get at least a little bit of "donuting" with nearly every pickup. It happens more with beveled magnets, because the non-beveled ones cut through the flatwork rather then displacing it. I usually...

    $100 for a few extra holes??? Am I the only one that finds this a bit crazy? I'm no machinist, but I have drilled and tapped metal before and it wasn't hard to do at all. Are we talking about a...

    In order to do this, you have to hold the metal sleeve on the cord as well. Otherwise, it's gonna buzz like an angry beehive. If they are buzzing inside the guitar, then you have some issue to work...

    Do you have to program it for each pickup?

    Or does it have a memory bank to store the counts of different common pickups?

    In the thread, it's mentioned that care was taken to isolate the b-string plate from actual contact with the magnets. But I do know what you mean; but if strings are so different now, and more...

    I understand your frustration. For me, it's about time management. If you just focus on the one task, then it will take a bit of time. But if you combine the steps with other similar tasks, then...

    Try wearing an eye patch when you wind. You'll find its easier to focus on the wire. What do you mean by "getting the wire behind the bobbin"? Do you mean when it snags on the wrong side of the...

    What's wrong with a few dabs of CA? I use it; assumed it was the only way to keep things sturdy. A little bit of coil-tape helps keep thing together as well. What kind of problems are you having...

    I want to get into these, but nobody sells ALL of the internal parts. What's missing is the steel coupling plate (as well as the b-string plate). So I went looking at metal suppliers and a 1'x2'...

    You're going to need a new magnet. Once they break, they don't go back together the way they came apart. It's just going to repel away from itself. Trying to force it may cause tonal problems.

    10000 winds of heavy 42 will only get you to 8k (appx) unless you wind extra tight (tension) but you likely will not be able to fit that much unless you make the bobbin taller. The same number of...
