I am adding a piezo pickup from CB Gitty to a new build. I understand they can be hot sounding when not shielded, which brings me to my question. If I were to make my own disc-o-tone, are both sides…Continue
I thought I had seen photos on CBN in the last year of someone's awesome homemade setup that mounted a hand-held belt sander as a thickness sander. I cannot find anything in the search results.

my piezo did the same thing , until i installed an onboard buffer circuit . i used a tillman . all the parts are available at radio shack . you can do a quick test to see if this will work for you , i think this should work but ... it may not until its installed inside , but ... try a guitar effects pedal that has a built in buffer . if that stops the hum , consider an onboard buffer or boost circuit . piezo is a lower output than a mag pu ... would it HURT ? the battery will last an awful long time , you COULD go with a rechargable , install a jack to recharge and an led meter as well , if you wanted to go all out . i added a headphone amp to mine . the battery lasts for years . google tillman http://tinyurl.com/nfrjlw3
