"I'm not sure the original question was answered... where'd you go poster?
I followed this same diagram and am having the same issue the original post described: Plugging in produces sound, but turning the volume knob has subtel effects on…"
"I noticed my 2 year old answer and must update it. I now use dual piezos in parallel and they work great (for piezos, if you don't like a piezo sound you never will) I prefer them mounted in the bridge. This seems to isolate them from…"
"The bottom one is the way I normally do it - it should be labelled in parallel though (both positives together and both negatives together). I normally don't bother with a tone pot on piezo discs as they don't do much to the sound."
"i use a floor tom with a kick peddle turned around so it beats up then i put a tambourine on top so i get a boom and a tamb. i made a bar to attach the kick peddle to. it hooks to the legs. then i got a old beaten hi hat stand and shortened it and…"
So, in a nut shell. I have been out of the game for a while. I have not built anything (or really had the time or extra cash to do so) or played much in almost a year now. But, a buddy of mine wanted me to build him a diddley bo....and now I am back at it again. I finished his build ( he is very happy with it) and now he has got me playing again. So....kinda the reason I hung it up was I wanted to down size my gear to something a bit smaller, thought I would come up with something…See More
Hi - have you shorted out the second coil? That should fix it if you haven't. Else just try different permutations of the connections before you solder it - should be possible to reduce it quite considerably

Hey Jerryrig, New Market is kinda near Louisville Ky right? I think I want to try to get a cbg gathering worked out for next summer for folks in the tristate area. Would you be onboard? I don't think I want to do a full on fest but maybe just something where all the cbg folks can get together and jam, trade building techniques and stuff like that. What do you think?
hello just stopped by ta let you know the final pics of the red brick guitar are coming up shortly--check them out--the pickup is a tesla transducer built by ted crocker.it sounds good and i,m going to do a video soon also if you would like to hear it. thanks.
Thank you Jerryrig240. The secret really is the Pinnacle movie making software that I received as a gift from John McNair. He really fixed me up. I used to use Windows Movie Maker, but it does not have the same excellent sound quality as Pinnacle. I am only using a little Canon Power Shot SD300 camera with a built in mic to shoot the video. Thank you for your comment. Enjoy.
