Walt hi, I try to give you a summary about what I recently tried to say: Darryl proposed to add Rogowski to the list of contributors, Wayfinder answered that he had no impact to the discussion; this is simply not true, as you can se from the first post of «How is this done?» where I stated the Alumitone be «technically a transformator». «transformator» was the keyword of the discussion from the first beginning, and this concept is Rogowski's. My intention is not about priority but about false claims. The reason I posted part of the interview of the Lace brothers is another: Wayfinder claimed there's no proof Rogowski had the idea about low impedance pickups already in the seventies but possibly based his post from 11/18/2007 on Lace's Alumitones: who is this guy to challenge the intellectual integrity of Rogowski without any reasons? Have a good time!
