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...
I'm going through the new great features of Flashback 2 and the TP editor
However I can't seem to activate the octaver
It's on in the settings, Wet level 0db and Router 0db Octaver to Effect but nothing happens
Are others having this issue or what might I be doing wrong ?
For the purpose of sharing, while I'm trying out and comparing...
I went another shop this morning
All they had was a Gator in 2mm and a purple standard plastic dunlop 1.5 (delrin? ) that i took home
The gator takes away alot of the crispyness/treble of the attack because of the texture, and to...
Though I already had a sustain pedal i now use, I came across this one half the price and no clicking noise
If you are worried it wont last you can buy 2 and it will still be half the price of BOSS FS 5U and all the costum builds
I'm having trouble with the slant of the filled edges of the primetones
It seems to make my picking unstable so It works better if i use another corner of the pick
The Claytons acetones don't seem to have that issue
(But they might have another one)
I'll try the Gator 1.5 tomorrow
Yes that's what I got
I'm not completely sure if the slant fits my playing though
I might be too used to the flat sides
Now i got me some claytons on amazon so I'll be comparing
Chore ? How so?
Agreed, I play mostly electric cleanish/crunchy stuff and the heavier pick is definitly better for...
I went to the store here in France
No Claytons mostly Dunlop
So i ended up buying this stupidly espensive pick 3 for 5 €
Probably the inexpensive Claytons (12 for 8 on Amazon) are just as good
But... I must say that though at first I completely rejected the thought of paying that much for...
If you like tinkering with the toneprint editor, the fb2 is pretty underated
In fact i tried strymon el capistan for a month and found the delays too hifi and the analog buffering horrible when on
I just made 3 costum delays in fb2
2 identical but with different mash setting
On one preset the...
This type switch migth be good on a huge arena stage but I have had an issue that the noise the make will be noticed on a smaller stage and can actually ruin a quiet song
I have tested with a Korg ps-3 expression pedal that i don't use often (for keyboards)
It's 14 dollars + an added stereo jack...
