"Only just picked up on this, I didn't get and emails about it like some of the others. Anyway it all sounds like a good idea and would join up at the start. One thing comes to mind, with all the talk of what Shane might do wouldn't it be a…"
"I'd like to know how these work out too! The best thing about it is it has a phones output too. I've been getting good results with large discs (35mm) thru a Tillman preamp circuit I build on perfboard then on to vol and tone."
"Hi Lou. Thanks for that, your doing ok there my friend and you wont get any crap from me, it sounds good. You've got some of the main parts down well there, that's sort of what I want to learn. I think it would be good to work out the main…"
"I dont know about the violin pick ups but I have found a great pick up. Look inside a Emerson phone handset and there is a pickup in there about the size of a silver dollar and boy does it work! I find these phones a yard sales and flea markets for…"
"Ya John 5 is a cool guy, if you find the video of his tele collection it'll blow you away and there's one of him at the Fender custom workshop having some work done to his signature tele prototype, he looks so worried when they start…"
"I wasn't really disagreeing with you mark with what I said about Clapton and what you say about it being said too many times is spot on and probably goes some way to explain Claptons response. I'm totally with you and I don't like…"

Just seen these on Ebay and wondering if anyone has used anything like it. Think it would look nicer than some guitar preamp setups I've seen as its just got a volume and tone pot instead if those EQ looking setups I've seen. Also the size of the pickup is spot on for going under a 3 or 4 string bridge. Not a bad price either :-) See More
"The key to how much you want to pot your pickup all comes down too how loud you want to play and what you want it to sound like. I also find that the more microphonic the pickup is, the worse it sounds with heavy distortion. I have a couple of…"
Hi Dave - you asked about the pen - yes I have a cream coloured one I use for walnut necks and a black one for the maple. It is an easy way to make it look as though you have inlaid something.
