Yes old post, but the advice you gave is still solid.
Good to see you still find time to lurk around and shine some light.
Actually finally I had to dismiss my homemade coil as it brought more noise at certain angles than with regular ground. I don't know if it was polarity or...
The term ground loop was badly chosen yes
And i agree with you on what to expect
What John Suhr told me 10 years ago was that a shielding should only have one connection to star ground
That a loop in the shield path is a potential antenna
I just found ou my tele pick up connects to the PU plate...
You're probably right
They did not mesure any connection to the pickups ground
My shield doesn't seem to make that much of a difference though
Still noisy as hell
It's hard to say if it is more or less noisy but it is VERY noisy
I don't know maybe i did something stupid
I was taught not to...
Apropos shielding i just gave a double graphite coating to the cavities of my tele and my les paul 54 RI, today.
Well... half the les paul, because i run a p90 in the neck together with a virtual vintage p90 humbucker bridge.
;) I don't know if it is a no-no but the blend seems to work...
Well I don't think he is a thief by intend, but keeping something that is my property an indefinite period of time after i told him to return it, is screwing with the client, in the sense that i'm stuck and might have to buy a new set of pick ups to compensate.
I also think it's safe to say he...
My guess is that he doesn't know how to manage his business and is trying to do everything himself instead of hiring staff and PR/manager
And it is letting down his business and his costumers at the same time
I've got an issue with a pair of pick ups, I had to return because of microphonics. He told me he will repair/wax them swiftly and for free
Since I waited some before getting to returning the PUs, I asked him for the delay and for how I would owe him
But three months has gone by and I haven't...
I received the Claytons today
I must first say that I've gotten used to the primetones with the beveled rounded corner since last time so I'm comparing to that
After a quick tryout
More Clunky and rough than primetones with the lack of bevels but better /brighter texture than the...
I didn't realise, so many heavy pick users
Since last week I'm getting used to using the rounded corner of the 1.5 mm prime tone
Both for fast solo stuff and chords
The sound is so much meatier, I'm really digging it
Takes away that papery plunky sound and the attack pops more
On chords it...
Yes, that's what I did and copied every excact setting in their organ preset, but I still can't integrate the octaver to my delay
The idea is to turn the delay knob to zero and pulling up feedback and router octave effect , by the same move but nomatter how i turn the settings no...
