"Gary Mullens, we can't respond to those emails because the site doesn't work that way. Write on this comment wall instead. $100 dollars for a tube sounds a bit expensive, but I don't know what tube your speaking of and who you were…"

Paul Craig commented on Shane Speal shanespeal.com's group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"Car speakers would work better than the computer speakers. Especially subwoofers would work great for acoustic piezo gits and of course Bass guitars, but you may want a 5watt or larger amp for bass."

"Hey MadGomer, Computer speakers for the most part are made to work on lower frequency levels than a guitar would operate. They will work, but they will degrade over a short time. I have a similar set up that's powered by a small computer preamp…"

Paul Craig replied to bizzaro guitaro's discussion Psycho knob install in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"I lost the paper that came with mine while moving, but I believe the operating voltage is 9V to 12V. Use 2 9volt batteries in parallel for longer use or a 9volt Walwart with a high milliamp rating(800ma or higher). Walwarts can sometimes cause RF…"

Paul Craig replied to John Mark Perchalski's discussion Splitting P-Bass pickups? in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"I split a set of PBass pickups that I got from C.B.Gitty and placed them in neck and bridge positions. I wired them to a 4-way switch I got from Stewmac.com that gives me each pickup separate, both in parallel and both in series. These pickups work…"
