"Low price to answer your question. Size of the speaker can also have a lot to do with the clean sound, distortion and clipping. I have a 1watt Ruby amp that I built that does great cleans and decent distortion because it has a 6" 10watt…"

"I ordered the Gold 3-way switch, Gold Tele Knobs and Gold strap buttons to finish out the BO Diddly guitar wiring and hardware. I'm using a clasp from a old guitar case I found on the curbside. After that, it just needs strings."

"I used Seafoam Green plastic coat hangers for the fret dots. I got Red, White, Blue, Black and the Green hangers from Walmart. They are 1/4" to 5/16" diameter and work great. Cheap too. Some have a hollow center, but there's plenty of…"

Paul Craig replied to Cause the Blue rat's discussion Squall bucker piezo? Got results and hoping others would try this.
"I'm thinking that adding another piezo in this way is having the 2nd piezo act like a resistor or capacitor that reduces the impedance, but I'm not sure."

"Another way to stop magnetic pickup squeal is to wrap the bottom and sides of the pickup under the top of the guitar with foam. I did this with the bridge pickup in my Strat-O-Res guitar. I just totally covered the bottom and sides with some black…"

"When i come home from work I'll be making my new piezo pickup experiment. Placing it in a CBG and playing it through my Marshall. REALLY hoping this version doesn't have the phasing the last one did."

"wow, looking great Craig. I might have asked before, but what did you use for the fretdots? How did you do the border on the box?"

Lonman replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"The top one is my first baritone. 27" electric. Bottom one, I saw this box at wallymart and I could not resist. This will be a 2 stringer, fretless, with a piezo. This will be my second 2 stringer. "

"Good score and I'd buy all he has. Using the bottoms for the top just hides the nice artwork that'll wear off rubbing against your body. Use the top as the focal point of your build, show it off. Spray some clear over it or cover the top…"

Paul Craig replied to Cause the Blue rat's discussion Squall bucker piezo? Got results and hoping others would try this.
"A series wiring would be signal through hot of piezo 1 - piezo 1 ground to hot of piezo 2 - piezo 2 ground to ground. That doubles the impedance and isn't  good. Parallel  wiring would be both grounds to ground and both hot/signal to…"

Paul Craig replied to Cause the Blue rat's discussion Squall bucker piezo? Got results and hoping others would try this.
"Looks like one piezo is acting as a dummy coil. It's not wired in series, but a variation of parallel. What's the grey box that the black wires are going to? Some guitars like the Gibson or Epiphone Blueshawk have P90 single coil pickups…"
