HI all. Im about to intall a rod Piezo in a new Build, I have installed them before some with volume Control some without. Is the only benifit that you have Volume Control on the Instrument rather than on the amplifer?

North Jeff, near Wanneroo, and you?

Makes sense, not using a mag on your drum banjo project...piezo will do better for you there. As Darryl said, soldering a small value capacitor, like a .01uF between the positive and negative lugs of the 1/4" jack will help filter out some of the harsh brittle treble-ness of the piezo.

To add to this, I am not saying that all piezo set-ups will sound brittle and/or harsh. But sometimes they can sound like a cat being pulled tail-first through a key hole.

Thanks for the info, and l will put the cap in. I have Strung it up and it is substantially louder than anything that I have built so far. I have made allowance for 4 strings but quickly realised that I am not Ready for 4 strings yet so back to 3. I will Post a pick as Soon as I Finish.

Oh by the Way , happy new year to all.
