"A good way to avoid heat damaging your pots is to tin the lugs on the pot first. Then I heat the wire a little. Then I heat the lug and slide the wire in. And also I agree with Darryl. You sometimes just get a bad pot."

"Pots are easy to damage with heat when soldering, also it's not unusual to have a faulty pot before you even do anything, 100k is a bit small for a mag volume pot also, i'd just check all the solder joints, maybe it's grounding via…"

Weird buzz as I turn volume knob

So I got the wiring to my new CBG 95% figured out.  The kill switch is working, the knob is turning it up and down, but in the middle of turning the volume knob, I get a buzz for a second and then it goes away as I get to each end of the turn. Turn up, mid, buzz, all the way up no buzz, turn back down, buzz in the middle then down to no sound.  Am I not getting something in the mid range not grounded right? Also, this is just a cheap 100k volume knob from radio shack. I am considering ordering…See More

"Right. The "boiled" is critical (I know it's not literally boiled.) I've had not issues with BLO, but just linseed oil is as you say."

"Don't use linseed oil, it never dries properly, always stays soft and gummy. TrueOil is the way to go for a simple rub-on oil finish - easy to use and gives a great result."

"the reason you ground to the strings is to stop it humming unless you are touching the strings, it's a good practise on all mag pups, you just need a wire to something metal that touches the strings, if you have a metal bridge or nut  the…"

"They have left off the ground wire from the pickup. Also you need to ground the strings to help reduce humming. How many bobbin pickups are you adding? If it was eg 3 bobbins for a 3 string guitar I would add them in series to give the most…"

"The ground from the pup goes to the ground on the pot, then to the ground on the output jack, the ground terminal of the pot is usually connected to the body of the pot also"

WIRING HELP NEEDED! Yeah, I'm lost......

So I am going through what I want my new set up to do.  This is what I have as far as parts..I have a stero volume knob.  I know, stero, I really just wanted a simple knob but our radio shack is going out of buisness and that is all they had left and it was dirt cheap. It by the way is a 100k.Then I have my home wound sewing bobbin pickups.Then I have my jack and also, I wanted to add a momentary switch.  To kill the single to the box when playing the loud, gritty stuff...push the button a…See More

Hard luck chuck replied to Jerryrig240's discussion What is a good clear coat for cbg necks?
"I did some reading in here and one of the suggestions was to use Miniwax paste finishing wax after using 600 grit to polish the neck.  IT really brings out the grain and make the neck smooth, like butter."

Mr. JerryRig
Could you explain how your snare is connected to your HiHat.
I'm playing with a suitcase kick bass and a HiHat.
I wanna add the snare.
Haven't seen any photos as of yet.
Thanks Sir

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

If you've got a plank and an E string you've got a diddly bow to test your pickup. Interesting comment - thanks

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?

Jerryrig, thanks for the comment on my vid. Gald you liked it. I like to use heavy reverb on the vocals, big influence from The John Spencer Blues Explosion

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.
