"Francois, they are remarkably simple to make in the basic form, but need a low to high impedance in line mic transformer, the Lace pickups don't require this as they have added circuitry to overcome it."

darryl kernaghan replied to Dogleg Steve's discussion accurate fretting
"Mostly good advice so far, 1 thing I'd add is, when cutting your slots after marking your board, make sure where you cut,[on the line, left of the line, right of the line etc.] is a constant, that will help in accuracy, a 1/2 a mm is not a big…"

darryl kernaghan replied to Cameron Cooley's discussion Newby Piezo Rod Question
"The stereo plugs will work, but you just need to make sure the hot wire is on the correct lug, you have a ground lug and 2 hot lugs, but you only need 1 hot 1 connected"

P.S. Darryl hi, by chance I came across the comment you sent on August 5, 2016 to Phil Hale: «Just for a clarification...» See my posting «Ok Scott, let's speak about ethics and respect...» and the discussion that followed from December 31, 2016 in «joes flatpickup». Seems I'm alone to speak clear text with our friend: his best contribution to low impedance pickup design would be to shut up for a month and study a textbook about elementary electrotechnics. Or is this thread kind of electrotechnical kindergarden? Have a good day!

Darryl hi, we have lost a lot of the early discussions because the license plate pickup thread has disappeared. SO SAD, TOTAL DISASTER!

I know exactly what you mean, I think a few people came to the same conclusion, including me.
Take Care
Phil

Hey Darryl , you're a  lucky bunch of buggers over there . I only found CW Stoneking by accident last summer while looking at some "Blues" section in HMV Bristol ... which typically touts Joe Bonamassa stuff lol ! I was'nt on line apart from work so took a chance on buying all 3 cd's at once and wasn't let down . I was drawn in partly  by the imagery and the fact the guy has a reclaimed valve amp called Kelvin ;-)

Sadly, today brings the passing of Phil Emmanuel, lesser recognised brother of Tommy, guitar virtuoso's both, although Phil never really played the guitar hero role, he was a stellar performer, and side man par excellence, Vale Phillip.
