    Re: Us newbies are cracking on ;)

    Well Jim, the regular 4 string `bird is looking promising....can`t wait to crank it up - all three pickups are coil tapped with individual push/pull pots and a 5 position Strat switch......I`m...

    Small is beautiful........less distance to travel between machines......and don`t forget, we`re in the UK........A small island with far too many people and space is at a premium ;)

    What`s so funny about that (unless you`re suggesting the workshop is too small) ? ;)

    Re: Me Thinks...

    Thanks Mandroid.......It was the external dimensions I was after so as to capture the overall vibe (rather than making a replica).
    As with most of my pickups, depth is 18mm and I use individual...

  11. Re: UK Luthier to build 4 String Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Hopefully you have now had a reply Mandrian.....If not maybe your settings are wonky........and sad to say, this also applies to my `pooter when customers purchase pickups from my website and I`m not...
  12. Re: The Mighty Cozart! New 8 string electric

    Bought one very similar a while back but badged "Clearwater" . Since I had a request for some pickups, I thought it might make a useful addition to my range of upgrades........Not my best decision as...

    Re: Fixing a microphonic pickup

    Good point Tom....those pickups are cheap Chinese things so maybe the cover is part of the problem..... Since you`ve already had it apart, for the price, you could try one of these .....Nickel covers...

    Re: Fixing a microphonic pickup

    If it`s one of those covered mini humbuckers with no screw holes, you could dip the thing in shellac (French Polishing stuff), let it soak for a while and then clean the excess off the cover with...

  17. Re: Rio Grande Mock 4 Pickup for Gibson EM200

    I agree about shielding....... If the coil is easily removable from the cover, lining the cover with copper snail tape and soldering a tag to the output ground wire will make a heck of a difference....

    Re: Use of EQ

    If you have some kind of recording software, then a spectrum analyser can really help to sort things by visually showing weak or dominant frequencies..... which can then be balanced out.
  19. Re: Thoughts on getting a country sound with an electric mandolin

    If the Bartolini is a humbucker, it may be a 4 wire pickup. If so, you could try it as a single coil. It looks like the wiring codes are the same as a Duncan so if you disconnect the red from white...

    Re: Ashbury AM 240

    I`d guess it would need a bit of work.....

    Also, with a lipstick pickup so close to the...
