    Wiring Advice for Modern With Coil Splits on Tone Knobs

    ...a Strat single coil with a 500k pot? Sits better in the mix with the band! But not to confuse you - the .47 uF (NOT .o47 !! ) replaces the simple wire to ground!

    Wiring Advice for Modern With Coil Splits on Tone Knobs

    Well although your very first drawing was correct, for splitting only (don*t mind the color code), to get better noise cancelling as well you need to use a .47 uF capacitor from the switch contact to ground. This still gives you a humbucking effect but frequency based. The first time I learned...

    How about a vintage Tokai NGD? (with pics)

    Well apart from all those great pretenders, this one oozes honesty ...a great example indeed! :cheers:

    P90 woes

    Well, i suggest you examine the toggle switch. Had it several times that the contacts did not work properly - it's a simple bending job. Check it.

    NGD: 2015 Les Paul Traditional

    You see, mine came fitted with Schaller Deluxes. I reversed to the robots and won't go back ever! Only a bone nut could be the next improvement. However you look at it - if yer lester rocks and delivers what more could you want?

    NGD: 2015 Les Paul Traditional

    You're officially a vinyl collector when....

    Hey, you must be a masochiste of some sort - Wagner by Karajan is like Barramundi pie and claret with coke:rofl::naughty:

    2 faced bitches

    Just imagine God is watching and having a ball with all those great pretenders. And why should the competition situation in a praise band be any different from other (big) bands I worked with? NADA BRAHMA - GOD is sound. HE hears the low volume voice of woman #1 well, whereas #2 just tries to...

    You're officially a vinyl collector when....

    Hi, my corner horns are modified, they reach deeper and higher, but that depends on the drivers. Mine are custom made 16 inch. With 24dB active crossover @ 400 Hz straight I'm fine. If yours are original Klipschs, you will use old JBL D140 Alnico drivers. with those you can cut off @ 450 Hz.

    You're officially a vinyl collector when....

    Yeah, that's the way to go. Here's my take on a good TT, the sound comes from an active Klipschorn kind of setup.

    New Sound City amps?

    Well, Dave could not accept Dallas' tight budget decisions. He did not want to compromise the quality of his circuits with sloppy builts and cheaper components - that's when he decided to do his own HIWATT thing! In my time I played both companies' amps and speaker cabinets and loved them. Still...

    Wraptail installation - perfect solution - the best possible way

    ahhhm, why shouldn't I not know this? All you say is common knowledge between builders. :applause: It's only that some of them just stick so deep in their woodcarving that they just don't realize, what the crappy metal stuff the industry sells does to korrupt the tonal potential of an...

    Wraptail installation - perfect solution - the best possible way

    Why worry??? What is wrong with my pictures? And yes, I startet using locked down bridges - not only wraptails - in 1987 when for the first time I exchanged the stoptail bolts with my own design from non magnetic steel. Lateron i simplified... Here's some old pics.

    Laptop Running Slooooooo

    Hey, mine is an old Quadcore, running Win10 on a SSD with only 4GB memory, smooth and fast. Seldom used but even in comparison with my main Octacore/16 GB DDR this lap is OK. So guess you should tidy up your harddisc and as mentioned already get all latest drivers and updates.
