Quick Question: What's the difference between open and closed circuit 1/4" mono jacks? I'm using this for a cabinet.
I have been working for the last few days to create a wire diagram, but I am kinda getting stuck with grounding problems, and crossed wires and generally messing up :|
What I have now is a guitar with a 5 way switch, a volume, and a tone. I would love to do all of this work without drilling any holes in my guitar, because its a nice one :|
What I am looking to do is use a super 5 way switch, concentric pots for volume/tone, and a 4 position, 4 pole rotary dial for the different settings.
This is what I wish to achieve in the endInvalid img)
I think I have pretty solid beginnings in my diagram, but when I hit the coil tapping, and phasing, it seems to fall apart...
This is what I have so far, that I am PRETTY sure works:
on the super switch I have the top left for half of the coils, the bottom left for the second half (there is always one coil turned on both of these poles in each position)
The top right is the "coil return", which allows all 5 positions to be in series, rather than just the two humbuckers
The bottom right is left open, probably for coil tapping purposes, but I have not quite figured it out yet :|
The rotarty switch (I have it sepperated into it's 4 poles in the layout) should be 1: series, 2: parelell, 3: phase, 4: coil tapping
If there is anyone here who can help me either finish this idea, or nudge me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.
Hi to All!
I've got a Jackson Dinky and I like to get an EMG 85 at the bridge position and an EMG 89 R at the neck position.
The wiring that I want to do is:
with a 3 way blade switch, 2 volume pots (vol indipendent for each
pick-up), no tone pot:
-position 1: bridge pick-up (emg 85)
-positione 2 (central): neck pick-up (emg 89R, humbucking mode)
-position 3: neck pick-up (emg 89R, single coil mode)
How can I do that??? Help Please!
is it just a matter of taking the red or green off the middle lug and put it on the left lug? so i got for example green on the left lug and red on the middle lug of the bridge roller?
Can I mix EMG’s with passive pickups?
It is possible to mix EMG’s with passive pickups. There are three possible wiring
conﬁgurations; one is better than the other two.
Use the high impedance (250K-500K) volume and tone controls. The problem is that
the high impedance controls act more like a switch to the EMG’s. The passive pickups,
however, will work ﬁ ne. If you have a guitar with two pickups and two volume pots, with
a three-way switch, there is another alternative. Use the 25K pots for the EMG, and the
250K pots for the passive pickup. This way you can use one or the other with no adverse
affects, but with the switch in the middle position the passive pickup will have reduced gain and response.
Use the low-impedance (25K) volume and tone controls provided with the EMG’s. The
problem here is that the passive pickups will suffer a reduction in gain and loss of high frequency response.
This is the best alternative. Install an EMG-PA-2 on the passive pickups. There are
two beneﬁts to doing this. With the trimpot on the PA-2, you can adjust the gain of the
passive pickups to match the EMG’s. The PA-2 acts as an impedance matching device
so you can use the low-impedance EMG controls (25K) without affecting the tone of the
passive pickups. You will also be able to use other EMG accessory circuits such as the
SPC, RPC, EXB, EXG, etc. For this application, we recommend ordering the PA-2 without
the switch for easy installation on the inside of a guitar.
I'm not a fan of non-natural acoustics, because I'm narrow minded like that :P
Having said that, nice score man, Breedloves are excellent guitars, and you won't be disappointed.
Hey I was just wondering about this wiring set up I'm contemplating.
Switch #1 is an on/off toggle for the piezo (thin black strip,that's also what the pot next to it is for, don't worry too much about that)
Switch #2 is a momentary killswitch, for everything
So basically it's an SSSP with 2 volumes, and a killswitch. Will it work, or have I gone insane?
edit: nevermind guess it doesnt matter
For some reason, It's not as loud as the speakers that are hardwired into the combo .
Theyre both sets of 16 ohm 12's at 80 watts
Could it be the cheap jack I used?
Are you sure?I know you know your wiring, So im not really trying to question you.
I dont know if its any different when wiring a guitar jack, But I accidentally wired my strat jack wires opposite of their original positions and when I would touch the strings, It would squeal
I dont know what I meant by proper jack
I guess like a plastic encased high quality :P
I'm new to any sort of guitar building etc. I think I have a wiring issue so that's why I'm asking here, I don't think it warrants a thread of it's own. The issue is a grounding issue on my acoustic guitar. The wire from the PA to the bridge is no longer connected properly to the bridge. If I put my hand in and push on the wire, the humming disappears. My problem then is that, although I know how to fix it, I don't know how to go about fixing it. I don't see how I can remove the bridge without damaging the guitar and I don't want to push a ball of bluetack (or similar) onto the wire for fear of just messing it up and causing more problems.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
is it okay to use this type of jack for making a speaker cabinet since I cant order a proper jack right now
Im going to use it as a medium between the speakers in my combo and a head im getting
also, does it matter where you solder the positive and negative leads on the jack?
I've searched all over the web for some schematics for my particular situation, but to no avail.
I'm looking for a wiring diagram for an HSS setup with one tone pot and one master volume pot. I intended on having a 500k push/pull pot for the volume that would activate the bridge pickup to acheive the bridge+neck and all pickups simultaneously being activated.
All I have found is a schematic for coil-tapping the humbucker rather than merely activating it. :\
Any help in finding a diagram for my aforementioned situation would be greatly appreciated!
