Hey friends,I'm trying to wire a lavalier mic into one of my gas can builds. The flexy metal pour spout will house the mic and (hopefully) I'll be able to sing into the spout while playing. I…Continue

"Adam, I am trying to understand the question a little better. You have a mic that runs on DC voltage and you want to power it with a 9V battery? It is sort of like Phantom power and that is what you would want to emulate. Crazy old guitarists used…"

darryl kernaghan replied to Adam Sikes's discussion Lavalier mic IN a guitar.
"If you intend to feed via the same jack as the guitar signal, you might need an impedance matching transformer in the gas can as well, i suspect like others that feedback might be the major obstacle though."

Paul Craig replied to Adam Sikes's discussion Lavalier mic IN a guitar.
"How about a Tin Can Mic like CBGitty sells wired through the guitar's controls? It could be hooked up to the can spout for an echo/reverb effect like a Talkbox."

Erasmo Coco replied to Adam Sikes's discussion Lavalier mic IN a guitar.
"My understanding is that he wants it wired into the spout of his gas can so he can sing into it and  follow the same signal path as his pickups. Paul you are right feedback will be an issue."

"Sounds interesting. I know Jack White had a pull out Bullet Mic in one of his guitars.The bullet most likely a high impedance mic that does not require phantom power."

JL replied to Adam Sikes's discussion Lavalier mic IN a guitar.
"treating the mic (3 wire) as a pickup (2 wire), use pins 1-ground and 2-positive from the mic, ignore the other one (3-negative)"

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

The nut is there to space the strings, the zero fret is the start of the scale length
