I’ve been working on building an aluminum neck and had to go through 4 maybe 5 versions before I found something that would work.
It looks like you’re way ahead of the game. You’ll get that neck Sussed out and it’ll be rad. Cat be cursed or not!
Les Paul guitar scale as a bass?
There are a handful of basses out there in that scale zone (Wandré for one). National has a couple super short basses too. Guitar scale just isn’t the best for string tension.
Outside of that you shouldn’t have any major problems and maybe...
Yes. The washer and the rubber act to isolate the metal assembly from both structures.
From their diagram, the rubber/washer isolates the new room structure from the part of the clip that attaches to the other structure.
There are diy options to make this happen too. But they probably...
Square rooms are really tough.
Acoustimac’s prices are ok.
Roxul mineral fiber is their stock option and one I wouldn’t recommend.
You’ll be better off with rigid fiberglass.
The roxul mineral fiber will shed through just about any porus fabric regardless of what they might claim. If...
I’ve done an absolute shit ton of multi color screen printing both in a well set up studio and in my basement. Both with fancy tools and by burning screens in the bathroom with $10 Home Depot light bulbs.
The 10 minutes was time on the computer getting your type set and printed. If it...
Screen printing screens are actually pretty easy to make.
Any art store will have all the gear you need. I wouldn’t be surprised if you could by a ready stretched screen in a small size for fairly cheap. The photo sensitive screen burning stuff works really well.
So with a little...
And my ignorance only proves your point. Haven’t even heard of the pickups you installed. :rofl:
I might be in the dark, but I still think it would be great to read what you find when you get a chance to hear the pickups in action.
There was a pretty extensive marketing campaign when those 36 anny’s Came out. Videos all over the Internet, reviews with sound clips in every magazine etc.
They’re decent pickups. If you’ve liked dimarzio’s in The past you’ll like these.
On the cheap paf side of things...the stew...
That gap/spike idea is solid. But the screw/spike will acoustically/vibrationally couple the room to the structure.
These clips prevent any physical vibrations from the iso room walls/ceiling etc. from exciting the structure of the house above and around that iso room.
Physical decoupling a...
RSIC clips are great. I haven’t used or lab tested this exact model. The one I am most familiar with is the RSIC clip for hat channel and Sheetrock. Not like this one: isolating a room from the above structure.
They both appear to use the same screw isolation rubber ring. I would...
