I just clamp things with my fingers and stay there for a day or two...No expense at all.

Nice, BQ! 1 Dollar for four clamps? That's right in my price range, even if they aren't pro-quality ('cause neither am I.)

Dollar Store find, 4” Clamps, 4 of em’, a dollar plus tax?

One in action, they’re not Pro quality, but they hold tight enough to do the job, so a good low budget buy?

Those buggers can be small! Glad to hear you sorted out the problem

Had not taken  it out the bag which made it hard to see. The resistor was on it lol

I think you mean capacitor? Tone controls are generally a pot (the turny thing, it's a variable resistor) with a capacitor connected to ground.

However a piezo itself is a capacitor, so maybe they react differently, a picture or two would really help.

Bought a cheap Piezo from ebay with a tone and volume prewired. When it arrived the tone pot has no resistor on it. Not managed to try it yet but I thought a tone pot would not work without a resistor ?
