This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?
I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.
A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.
So I have an update. The Preamp and Psycho Knob don't play well together when using a walwart. Had a sine wave going through when trying to use them. I'll switch over to individual batteries and see if there's any interference. Someone else tried this before and had the same issue.
The reverb. The piezo for transmitting signal through the springs isn't working. The receiving piezo works, I can tap the box and it comes through to the amp. I though the Piezo would work on the transmitting side sense it is a transducer, maybe the signal needs to be boosted more?
piezeo wont work as a transmitter. to make sound they are usually driven in the ultrasonic range.. thats why they are used as buzzers, and those misters you see in fog/vapour effects. you have to drive them hard.. you could try a small speaker like a headphone speaker to excite the spring..
That's an idea. I do have some small speakers, but does that require tapping into the speaker coil? This may be more trouble that it's worth. LOL
My Uncle in Florida Got these From Fuentes which are I believe a Special Edition/Anniversary boxes. He asked me to make these beautiful boxes into Guitars. Challenge Accepted. Let me know if you have any ideas for me or guidance. First time with the "rounded off edges" type of boxes. Also he asked if I could keep the top intact without sound holes. I talked him into at least allowing me to do sound holes on the side. Has anyone had experience with the sound holes on the side rather than the top?
If you haven't looked through "The Essential Pages" at the upper right of the page, do so now. Lots of valuable info there with diagrams and pics.
If you need help, most folks on this forum will be glad to help.
Hi Adam, yes I have put soundholes in the side. In the topside facing up to me, so I could hear the guitar better acousticly. Of course the sound does not project forward to the listener very well.
Love that Idea, Thanks
This may be an odd question, but having the handle face out/away from you like in the picture, does that carry the sound forward at all?
Yup , directs the sound forward ;-)
Glad you like the idea .
Love that idea Pick.
