Heh heh, yeah, you gotta pay very close attention.
You're going to love the P90s! 42AWG min build, 8000 full scatter front, 10000 intermittent scatter rear with reversed leads for him canceling in middle position, A5 mags same polarity to screws front, A2 mags, same polarity to screws. Season to taste and RAWK!!!!
I just went with the Mojotone kit with A5 mags. I'll give it a go and see what happens. The winding looks a little daunting though..
Can't go wrong with A5. Would love to hear them!
I swap the wheel and counter with the bobbin holder. Wind on the left, instead of the right side.
Love that cast pulley tower. Gives it that steam punk look.
Iphones and some Android smartphones has an on board hall sensor, if someone download the proper application can use his phone to measure EMF, has anyone use one of those applications?I download this one at my phone that is free, it seems to work but i do not have a known value magnet to calibrate it.
This thread has been off the front page for too long.
Rob I installed the new F90 you sent me in the bridge of the stripey strat. Fantastic, that thing has some serious balls!!! I didn't install the neck pup because the original one you sent sounds real good. I'll put a package together and send you a few things back soon.
On another topic we need to work on this relic yellow tele guitar, it's one of my favorites to play but lacks in the pup department. Has a real nice rhythm tone where I start off the song but the instrumental could have been so much better if those pups would get a little angrier. I think I can live with the neck pup in it (rarely use em anyway) but the bridge pup just isn't cuttin it.
I can fix this.
Ohh, this is gonna be good.
Always good stuff to be found here.
Rob...ever hear of a Mike C pickup; a tom bridge with something along the lines of a piezeo attached to each saddle?
Several manufacturers make one including Graph Tech.
I have never used one however so we will need a Guinea pig........
I installed one in my last guitar. It is the wraparound bridge, but the same technology. I Love it and highly recommend it.
Lets hear it André!
I'm a poor player, but that is beyond the point
The last minutes of the video have a sound sample of the bridge. This requires the Graph tech board as well.
No need for more animal lab tests. I have this bridge from Schaller with the graphtec saddles and the graphtec board on/in a maple Less of a Paul.
Sound sample #3, #4, #5 I plugged the preamp right into the laptops mic input. So no professional recording gear. Played through a real amp you get more base apparently.
Nick, I don't know enough about what device they put in the smart phones or anything about the apps, but my suspicion is that you are exactly correct, you would need a magnetic source of known values to calibrate the device.
There are some quite expensive hall effect sensors that are factory calibrated, produce a predictable linear output, and they can be put in devices that have the ability to be adjusted a bit, so there's a direct read. They're in devices like Rob has.
I doubt, because of the cost, that this is the type of hall effect sensor that is put in smart phones, so you really are reading voltage, translated to gauss, and in order to come anywhere near accurate, you have to calibrate all along a scale. Apparently the phone app does the conversion math for you, and reads out in gauss. Again, just guessing, but I would think it's quite similar to the DIY low-cost gauss meters that folks have found while Googling for gauss meter circuits:
I'm trying to visualize what size hole, and where you'd put it, to get all those wires and the plug down into the interior of the guitar--specially with an LP!
