"Shielding the inside of the box can be necessary To help with feedback, electrical fields in a stage setting and RF issues. A lot of musicians will shield the cavities of their guitars(solid and hollow body). You can use the copper foil to cover the…"

"If you’ve got an old guitar cable laying around, that’s shielded wire? A little bulky, but it works the same? Something to think about is that most of the hum people encounter, comes from bad soldering, so you can shield the heck out of…"

Copper foil tape as shield.

Trying to "hum-proof" my latest build and read somewhere that the jack output leads should be shielded. Can't get shielded cable so am considering wrapping the wires with copper foil tape. I imagine the tape around the ground wire would itself have to be grounded. Does this sound reasonable? Would it be effective? Any comments/suggestions appreciated.See More

ILL GREEN replied to Arthur Payne's discussion Why have a switch? in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"Couple of ways to have a no-toggle-switch guitar. But all root to how the pickups were made. One should be north and the other, south. Both can be wounded the same direction. The positive becomes the ground and the negative becomes the hot of one…"

"I’m sure it’s meant for more than one pickup, is it not? Something to remember, a picture is worth a thousand words?"

Why have a switch?

Up to now I've done all my own soldering etc but recently I've been looking on-line at pre-wired harnesses.   Almost all of them include a toggle switch.   Why would you need one with just one volume and one tone pot?   Do they serve a useful purpose?See More

Paul Craig replied to Arthur Payne's discussion Problem with second-hand amp. in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"Since it's making a good bit of racket before the guitar is plugged in, I think your problem is the cord or amp jack being loose or bad ground connection. It's not uncommon to get a little noise in tube amps, but solid state shouldn't…"

BrianQ. replied to Arthur Payne's discussion Problem with second-hand amp. in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"Yes pick, all amps made in the last 30yrs are specifically made to not have grounding issues. with that said, check the obvious: Guitar wiring-pickups,switches,pots&output jack. Also check your cable, this is why people spend too much on…"

Problem with second-hand amp.

 Hi All,I have a query about an amplifier I have just acquired, a second hand Roland Cube X20 . It’s in really good condition and all it’s features work fine but when I plug in the jack, before it’s connected to the guitar, I get a distinct hum. This almost disappears when I hold the the other end of the lead - except if I touch the jack tip – then it really screams.The hum also almost disappears if I touch any metal part of the amp.When it’s connected to the guitar the hum is still there but…See More
