jawbone replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Time to upgrade to rod piezos

"Hey Bryan - I think I tried to lead you astray....wire your piezo's in PARALLEL to calm them down - it's been so long I got mixed up.I wire my speakers in series to double up on the impedence."

"Someone help !! Please - Did I get this backwards... Does series make the piezos harsher and parallel calms them down some???   "

jawbone left a comment for Bryan Pieper
"Hey Bryan - I just saw your message - Wow, I haven't used piezos for a long time - I would wire the piezos in series because it seems to take the harshness out of them. I would usually glue the disc to the back of the neck inside the box.…"

jawbone replied to Bluesheart's discussion Reso cone warning!
"This a question prompted by Chickenbone Johns post... I'm trying to figure out "the compensation" - I'm afraid I may have missed something. Why the compensation and is it only for reso cones??"

We are well.  We had a series of ice storms that caused problems for some, but nothing compared to what many north of us face every year.

I love it here! We're from the west coast (California and Washington) but the Navy has my wife stationed here (she doesn't like the mid-south weather).  But being here has been a goldmine for my music and I've been able to connect with my family roots.

How are things up in your part of the world?
