So this is just a question on what capacitor does the best job controlling a piezo rod?
While I'm at it what do you find to be the best saddle material for piezo rods.
I have tried many different combos and wanted to hear your ideas on this.
One thing about root instruments I really like, is the minimalist approach.
here is one of my builds with a .022 orange drop and bone saddle.
If you have not tried this its the least expensive way to get a good sounding electric guitar, the rod alone sounds good but have a harsh high end. Depending on it's value of the cap. lets you tailor the overall tone.
My reason for this post is I found a odd cap. that really shines with my scratch build amps .
What Says You!
adding to the metaphor a tad... a resistor (or a POT) in front of the tone cap is like the lifeguard at the top of the slide, making people wait their turn before going down the slide, a little resistance and the line moves quickly and a lot of skinny people take the slide (tone cap) bypassing the stairs (volume pot to output jack), a lot of resistance and the line moves slowly and only a few skinny people can take the slide, most go down the stairs cause its easier.
Smart is not always fun but fun don't care about smart.
The first word of this post was Potless tone but I learnded somthin' Thanks
