Hi Andries,

Thanks for the friend request and welcome to my page!  Always good to have friends.

No, it's not a cone, it's a flat sheet. I'm pretty sure that the buzz is a wire touching the edge of the sheet. One of these days I'll take it apart and fix it but between work and building new guitars it's on the back burner for now.

Thanks Andries! The carbon fiber worked pretty well but there is a buzz that I need to find and fix. Can't hear it if I turn the amp up loud but it'll drive me crazy acoustically. I have a piece of carbon fiber left that I'm going to experiment with on the next build so stay tuned.  : )

I don't even mind the lack of rain,but Its been mid 90s for several weeks even high 90s ,which is pretty hot for here .We get plenty of rain in the winter ,but we have had about five years of very hot record setting temps and multiple 90 day stretches without rain.Some say climate change ,global warming.Weather is always cyclical,so I try not to freak out,but I'm not a big fan since I mow lawns for a living....hahahahaha

Thanks for the info on the licence plate Andries, especially about cutting into it, I've got a few ideas now. Due to other commitments building is slowed down but I'll let you know how it goes & post pics :)

I hope you get your soaker Tomorrow. I’ll be pumping lake water for our garden today. Greeting to the Dutch Master. .. Andries!

Thanks Andres. I’m a long ways out on finish but it’s unfolding. I have to let it rest for a day while other projects and garden calls. Firing coming up in a week and no slides painted. Yikes, lots of pots to paint and glaze. Is Holland still bone dry? My garden needs a good soaker here.

Hey A.D. Buckethead uses Sanwa arcade buttons, normally open wired between the poles of the output jack. These are cheap and work great.  http://a.co/bWRSl0V

The one i used on the death and flowers gitty was from iran age, it also works great but a little pricey, as it seems everything on my ordering list at Amazon has risen quite substantially recently.......  http://a.co/3nm5aqJ

Thanks A.D! On One Soul c#merle did everything, the video, singing, drum beat, and add on organ effects, to my solo Big Payback guitar track. I had the easy one this time ha! Thanks!

At 11:15am on July 11, 2018, Richard Sundberg said…

Thanks, I hear you! I actually looked around for the Lace Matchbox to check prices!  C. B. Gritty is out of supply, Amazon same. Still can buy direct from Lace! Ebay UK I believe had one, you might check out. Agreed, Greece ??? I’m thinking about putting one on Uncle’s Partagas, make it a West Coast Electra jammer ha! Thanks A.D! I noticed  during my web surfing, more like web fumbling, your right, age catches you if you don’t catch it, one builder here bought a bunch of the Lace pickups, making deluxe CBGs with em!
