Hi everyone! I promised in another thread to put up some recordings - here they are: Christopher Lyngedal's sounds on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free On the Soundcloud page, I've uploaded 8 tracks, 4 with CTS EP086 500k pots, and 4 with RS Superpots (I believe they are built to 550k specs). Some further info on the clips: In the "heavy" clips, I do a heavy doublestrum on a E5 powerchord on the 7th fret A-string. Then I roll the volume down by one number. (I have pointer washers, so it's kinda accurate) When I reach 0, I start going back up to 10. The "soft" clips - a single B-major barre chord on the 7th fret E-string. Tone controls on 10, never touched during the recordings. I did my best to keep the strums even and so on, but I did mess up a few places. Oh well. (The harmonic on the 7th fret is a bugger sometimes) Pot specs: The standard CTS pots - Bridge 517k. Neck - 503k. RS Superpots - Bridge 576k. Neck - 574k. Gear/setup: Epiphone SG G-400 with SD JB/Jazz set (with magnet out-of-phase when in middle position mod), Tonepros Tune-O-Matic, full-face pickguard, speed knobs. Ernie Ball Regular Slinky's 10-46 gauge. Before: Home-made wiring harness, standard CTS pots, ceramic caps, switchcraft jack, Epi switch, braided wire. Wired 50's style. Now: The Tundratone Special - SG Style Wiring Harness Complete. RS Superpots for volume, CTS 550k high-spec pots for tone (measured 555k/553k). Neck cap: Cornell-Dubilier .022 uf 600v PIO. Bridge cap: Aerovox .022 uf 200v PIO Obviously wired 50's style Planet waves 10ft cable. Bugera 6260 2x12 combo. Stock Bugera 6L6 tubes. High-gain input. Amp setting: Clean channel w/crunch mode engaged. Gain 10 o'clock, Bass/Mid/Treble and Presence 12 o'clock. Channel volume 9'clock. Microphone: Zoom Q3HD. Camera off, mic sensivity set to "Low". Pick: V-Pick Snake Pointed Unbuffed. I think that's about it... Please point it out if I forgot anything in this post PS: The point of this video is not to bash on anything/anyone. This simply illustrates the difference between two different types of volume pots. Yes, I didn't ONLY change the pots. I changed the whole harness. I know. But I still think these clips are a good indicator on how the pots behave, and what the taper is like. Feedback greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask any questions, and please point out any mistakes I might have made. I here to learn!
