"Back in the 90's I had a friend who was a tube amp nut. He worked on my Fender Deluxe amps to get experience. They sounded awesome. We would go to the "tube room" at this neat old surplus place the next city over to find NOS tubes for…"
"I've tried this, and from what I remember, it increases the impedance, so it sounds even shriller and thinner. Going in parallel reduces the impedance, so it sounds more acoustic-like. If you want to go with piezos, I think one piezo by itself…"
Hey hey skeesix, the 4 pole PUP sounds great! I think the guy i made the guit for is coming this evening to get it. My time to play on it is limited. Hppe you have another one, cos now I MUST have one in a guit for meself. Thanx again, you make awesome stuff.
Hi Skeesix - Thanks for leaving a comment with my last vid. You asked how I got the vocal effect - its not very clear from the vid but I'm using an old telephone ear-piece as a microphone. Inspired by Bluesbeaten Redshaw and Bol Log III. The signal is then routed via some distortion, a bit of compression and then a little reverb was added.
Glad you liked the vid and here's wishing you a wonderful 2011.
Many thanks for the excellent pickup, it sounds awesome! With a clean sound, it has a very (for lack of a better term) One String Willie tone, bright & clear, With some distortion it sings & I also add some octave doubler (one and/or two octaves down) to make the room shake. I play it through an old Barcus Berry bass amp w/ a 2x15 Kustom tuck and roll cabinet. Very cool, many thanks for your hard work, it was a complete success, I wouldn't send anybody anywhere else for a one string pickup!
Mary Ann- here is a new vid of me playing the Time Bomb with the 3 banger scorch and twang in my 2 piece band 7 Hills Stomp. I will be playing it at the Pennsylvania fest. Hope all is well with you. Later http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRw1SdTKhzA
