"Man that's some good stuff. I really appreciate it. That's a good looking rig in your profile pic. I see your using a railblaster humbucker pup. I've been using them on several recent builds. Using a switch for split coil. I like them!"
On nearly all my CBGs I add both piezos and magnetic pickups. This is an old video I made comparing piezo discs and magnetic pickups with and without a preamp. Note the sound is very low (old camera mic) so turn the volume up on your device…"
"Ted, if you go with separate volume controls for piezo and mag pups, you can blend in your piezo to the mag sound and get some good results, the piezo is, in effect, a capacitor, so you get a bit of tone control, to counter any problem like James…"
"Hi Ted, i have not built anything with both, BUT i own an Yamaha AEX 500. Which has already both - Humbi and Piezo. It has 2 extra controls: 1 active 9V (usully found on acoustic guitars) for the piezo and passiv volume and tone knobs for the…"
