  1. yeah,,, I'll have to recheck the wiring,,, and I've got a giant oil/paper capacitor that might be forcing some wiring to touch and short out.
  2. Thx,,,,,,,,,,, Suhr emailed me back,,, promptly I might add, and said that they don't make a rwrp humbucker,,, I think you're right,,, it's a "reverse" of the zebra bobbin colors.
  3. trial and error may be my best path forward here,,,, thinking that instead of removing the red and white HB wires from the circuit I should instead solder them to the switch. I 'm trying to avoid putting a super-switch on here but I do have one. Suhr emailed me back,,, promptly I might add, and said that they don't make a rwrp humbucker,,, so that solves that mystery! They also sent a wiring diagram though it does have the super-switch,,, I'm going to try the one below first.
  4. maybe it only applies to splitting the coils and making the one to be paired with the middle pickup reverse wound,,, so then the other half of the humbucker would be opposite of that (?)
  5. Here's a picture of everything,,, another thought, just because someone wrote "reverse" on this pickup doesn't necessarily mean it's actually reverse wound. The green and bare wires are sleeved together and going to ground, black to the switch, red and white tied off.
  6. So in my attempt to assemble a decent HSS strat style I bought some Suhr pickups,,, FL singles in the neck and middle and then a DSV+ humbucker for the bridge. I just stumbled across the DSV+ on Reverb and see it's reverse wound so I think, "Ah that must be so that it gets along with the middle single coil pickup". Perfect, I buy it. But after hooking this thing up it definitely does not get along with the middle pickup so I'm left wondering if I just botched something in wiring it up or if this reverse wound humbucker isn't used the way I think it gets used. There's not much info on the interwebs that I can see. I'm also thinking, since it's reverse wound, do the color-coded hss wiring diagrams need to be re-thought. Is green the new black? I'm also operating on just a few hours sleep,, maybe I need a nap!
  7. I settled in on EB Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms cuz I like the size mix but the DR Pure Blues were the prior favorite. Reading this thread makes me want to get them again!
  8. I'll sell joshoowah the Aracom and you can sell me the Kelley, then everybody is happy! or at least I am,,,

  10. I picked up an Aracom PRX150 that I really like,,,, I was trolling for a Kelley because I wanted a foot switch for turning it off/on but this thing has done quite nicely. The variable attenuation is great for those late night bedroom levels and of course the must-have 2ohm setting!
  11. The UAD Apollo has some excellent hardware and you get a free DAW (LUNA) which works hand in glove with the Apollo. This DAW is impressive, low latency even with time based effects applied. The interface with midi/instrument tracks is infinitely easier than Pro-Tools as well, I've been moving all files over to LUNA and we'll start tracking with it next week.
  12. for me it was Jeff Beck's There and Back, such cool sounds. I was a little dejected when I couldn't even learn one song off the album,,, still am.
  13. 1. 32" ultra wide monitor 2. 4.5" from the top of table to viewable part of screen 3. 36.5" to the top level is accurate. 4. That middle section has supports underneath spaced 19" apart so that's about as wide as your oval can be. It's 16" deep/ front to back. Hope that helps!
  14. Once I get home I'll put the measuring tape to it. You should be able to cut an oval from that area without it affecting the loading strength much, I think that top piece is more about lateral bracing anyway, so long as it remains continuous it should be fine.
  15. You could borrow some of the design ideas you like and custom build your own like stedge,,, or even buy a pre-made then modify it to suit your needs. I can take measurements on this thing if you like...
