    Question regarding cap values

    Even if I did, I wouldn't be able to measure it accurately as my multimeter doesn't have a capacitance setting. The one that's really tripping me up is the "1μ0M;" I'm curious what the significance is of putting the micro symbol between the numbers. On a resistor 2M2 is 2.2 meg, but that...

    Question regarding cap values

    I have googled without finding much. I'll try Digikey.

    Question regarding cap values

    OK, I need a hand from some of the more electrically-inclined. I'm working on restoring a Russian synth, and I need to get replacements for axial electrolytic caps labelled as follows: 10μM 1μM 10μN 1μ0M Honestly, I'm not sure how to read those. The M and N are tolerances, correct? The...

    Best opening line ever...

    I have a couple, both from books: "The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel." -William Gibson, "Nueromancer" "We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold." -Hunter S. Thompson, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"

    TDPRI Robots!

    Between those two I think Data is the most human by a country mile.

    Crackling/popping noise help needed

    Does it do the same thing on different amps?

    Have you ever had this experience..

    I think it's happened to everyone that's auditioned a few times. It's happened to me more than once.

    How's your boss?

    I have to say, my boss is pretty cool and understanding, especially considering the meat grinder that the last year has been. I had a whole series of things that piled up on me around September-October that really did impact my work performance negatively, left me feeling completely depressed...

    Ever ruin something while trying to fix it?

    Murphy's Law #1,334,546: If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway. Corollary: instructions are for losers.

    Yamaha Is The Greatest Musical Instrument Company, Ever

    They'll always be top 5 if the only thing they ever did was the CS80, but they did a lot more.

    How are your retirement plans turning out?

    Silly Laren, my generation won't be able to afford to retire.

    Finally found the holy grail!!!! Rarest Fender ever?

    Pick it up and jauntily swagger around your home prancing in front of a mirror all while playing "Cissy Strut" with the volume at 11.
  15. Mr. Lumbergh

    It's a real thing but I wouldn't advise bothering with it. It'll really make you hate your neighbors. Imagine a bunch of bored third-graders bickering at and getting passive aggressive with each other all while talking politics. That's Nextdoor.

    hearing voices on a long walk

    They're pretty remarkable.

    Alternative to standard telecaster wiring suggested for these pickups?

    This is how they did it in the 50's, it's supposed to solve the issue of the tone darkening as the the volume is rolled down but it created an interactivity with the volume control.

    hearing voices on a long walk

    OK, here we go, I misremembered it a little bit. It wasn't something they told their offspring about, but they were able to describe the masks to crows from other communities that weren't involved in the study. But still, they were able to communicate to the other groups to be wary of the masks...

    hearing voices on a long walk

    I'm still digging around trying to find the study I mentioned, it's been probably 2013 or 2014. Here's another though that shows they can differentiate Japanese from Dutch which is also pretty amazing for an animal...

    Chair or Stool in Music Room?

    My music room is also my living room and home office, so it's a chair for me.

    After All, it's just Wood & Glue, Right?

    Don't forget the value craftsmanship brings to the equation. It's a bit simplistic to write it off as "wood and glue," someone needs to cut and shape it and bring it all together, and the more experience they have at this and the more they pay attention to detail the better the final result will be.

    Compression pedal placement

    I have man last, right before the looper. I use it to smooth things out on the drives and get that nice Gilmour compressed-drive sound. As others have said, wherever it suits ya. You'll need to play around with it to find what works for you.

    A Blues Jr III story

    I have a Two-Tone, which is a limited run Fender did where they put a BJr. head in a cab with a mismatched 10" and 12" speakers. It ain't going anywhere.

    If you think pineapple on pizza is bad...

    This is me too. I just don't like sweet + savory, especially when it's as sweet as canned pineapple. A local taco stand just open and I've only ever eaten there once; they stashed pineapple in the meat mix and I gagged when I ate it. Nah. Keep my savory savory. Sometimes I'll get a craving for...

    hearing voices on a long walk

    It isn't the size of the brain that seems to matter most for intelligence but brain to body mass ratio. By that measure, birds are pretty smart. Crows for example show signs of pretty complex language. There was a study done at the University of Washington IIRC in which students would put on...
