Interesting. What does the second switch do?
In Scotty's words "three high tones and three low tones" My friend Doug Drews who works on all Scott's guitars shared the pic with me last night. Never had my hands on it yet but, I assume in? out phase series parallel. Unique as scotty for sure:
Would that be this one?
Neck mini hum and sweet tones...
The neck sound at :56 is sweet as hell.
But then at 1:49 he flips two switches and gets a seemingly different neck pup sound (after some bridge pickup).
Wow amazing playing. What's that he's got on his nut?
Does anyone have a clue on how to wire the Scotty Anderson circuit?
I want to know what that neck mini hum is!
Also, what holy grail Peavey amp makes him sound so good!
I'd guess it's a piece of paper to shim up the string where the nut got a little low.
Thanks. If so, plain weird. So many better options.
I'd guess the problem just happened and the paper was temporary until he could get to a tech.
Pretty funny though!
Yeah. And to be honest his playing is so good who gives a c****. Great sound he gets out of that and the Peavey.
I believe Scotty told me the neck was a Gibson miniHB and the bridge was a Seymour Duncan. He used to use a small practice Peavey- like a backstage or something- just a clean platform. He uses only one pedal- a delay.
I read on another forum (TGP?) that a member there knew/ talked with Scotty and got that it was a Gibson mini. (Maybe it was you?)
I've always like them a lot compared to any other HB and actually have an old one now that needs the base plate repaired. They used to sit in shops for $35- $50 cause nobody wanted them, but players are wising up.
Still, his fat round but not bassy neck pup sound is not just straight mini hum with player touch IMO.
I suspect that the volume turned down with his particular treble bleed recipe cuts some bass and retains just the right treble to get that sound, along with of course a masters touch on the strings.
I gotta say that his sound is closer to exactly what I want and try to hear, IMO not your typical Tele tone, and while my skills are far behind Scotty's, I can cultivate my tone fairly well.
I only use delay too, so there's that.
I'd be very curious to know what cap and what resistor values he has in the treble bleed.
Could you ask Mr Drews what the treble bleed cap and resistor values are?
If so then thank you, if not thanks for the pic anyhow!
Thanks for the picture!
Looks like 1nF/150K for the bleed.
Could you actually see the bands and read the codes on the orange drop, to get those numbers?
Or more of an educated guess?
I just dug out the old pat sticker mini hum I have and it reads 6.02k, so I'm hopeful for a nice fat clear neck tone.
Just have to fix the broken patched mounting tab.
Hit the back with a file and the cover is indeed solid nickel silver.
Gotta pick a body to rout and fab a template...
I clearly see the 102k on the orange drop (1nF).
The resistor is a bit unclear. I see from left to right: Brown, Orange, Black, Green, Brown. Green cannot be second to last so it is Brown, Green, Black, Orange, Brown.
It could be yellow and not orange, that's the thing I'm uncertain of. Yellow would give you 1.5M. Sounds high for the application?
The cavity must be cut deeper to house those honking big parts hanging down...
a 300V cap in a circuit that carries millivolts is a bit over kill.....
1nF and 150k is a fairly common combination.
