Hi everyone, i built 11 nice cigar box (the 4 first were ......) 3 or 4 strings, always, with a piezodisk, a potentiometer, and a mono jackl!!!
I want to put a 4 pole single coil, to replace the piezo, but don't know how to plug it to the jack!!!
I never did it before and don't find a schma on the net!!!!!!
If enyone could help me !!!! i will be verry glad !!!!
If you check the wiring and electronics group here, there is a thread with a whole bunch of wiring diagrams in it.
Your English is fine! Don't worry about it. :-)
Thanks a lot, i don't receive the coil yet, but, if it's just a + and a - , and go to the jack (or whith a volume.). In fact it's the same as a piezo!!! i don't realy know, how i will nicely cut the box to place it, i don't have lot of verry cool tools!! But we'll see!! Thx again !! (sorry for my english, i'm french, but i try my best !!)
Thx , but it must be ( i didn't receive it ), but i translate directly from the french, and it doesn't work like that at all !!! anyway!!
Am i right, is it really like i said, like a piezo!!?? with or whithout potentiometer ?? It's because of the "4 pole"!!, i imagine 4 conection at the coil bottom, or 4 cable!!
Because i tried to replace a humbucker from my "Gretsch" and put myself in a deepshit!! but i was much younger!! and it must be easier for a CigarBox!!
So again, am i right !!!
No matter how many poles there are, there is just one wire that is wrapped around all of them. Since it is just one wire, there will always be two ends (connections). Connect the + to the tip lug and the - to the ground lug. Just like a piezo.
Just what i wanna know !!!
Thx a lot man !!!
