    Sunburst tone pot

    Thanks a lot, texwest, It is a 59/JB combo indeed (25th Anniversary Artist), I'll try to solder in a new cap and see how I like that. Magnet swapping was next on my list anyway, will have to wait until after the summer, though (too much work now). Regards, Tobias

    Sunburst tone pot

    Hi everyone, I have a similar question: If I 1) kept the 500K tone pot and changed the capacitor to something like a 0.022 or 2) changed the tone pot to a 250k and maybe changed the cap as well, 3)changed the volume pot(s) to a 300K or 400K would either action result in a different final result than just turning down the original tone pot to the point where i like it (usually at 3)? Thanks in advance, I am ignorant when it comes to those things. Regards, Tobias

    Line Mixer specs/recommendations

    Thanks for the suggestion, but since all the other aspects of the routing are taken care of, all I need is a solution for the summing of the signals. A looper/switcher (and the ES-8 allows for parallel routing and signal carryover, so it meets some of my requirements) would be too big (I am already considering replacing all my effects with a Line 6 Helix, but even the Helix can't do all I need it to do.). At the moment I am using 2 inputs of my amp and 1 Y-adapter (like this one: https://www.radioshack.com/products/radioshackgold-series-mono-to-mono-y-adapter ). Obviously I need a solution that offers higher fidelity. I have edited the original post for clarification. Thanks for the suggestion ! Cheers, Tobias

    Line Mixer specs/recommendations

    Hi Lockbody, Thanks for the information. Since not all 3 multi-effects are in the chain at the same time (but their outputs have to go to the main output all the time) and since I split my signal to the 3 multi-effects at different points in the signal chain (before/after OD), a parallel looper is not a solution, I'm afraid. Would a passive 4 in 1 mixer like the DOD 240 work? https://dod.com/en/products/ac-240 That would keep everything at instrument level, wouldn't it? About 6 db of signal loss to be expected? I'm open to all suggestions. Cheers, Tobias
  5. Hi everyone, I'm currently running 3 multi-effects pedals in parallel. I need a (preferably really small) line mixer to mix the 3 (mono-) signals so that I can use this rig with guitar amps that have only 1 input. Edited for clarification: Summing the 3 signals to 1 output without compromising the sound quality is the goal. The volume levels I can adjust otherwise (on the multi-effects units themselves). I am contemplating the Behringer MX400. Since the signals coming out of the 3 multi-effects units are buffered, what should the input impedance of the line mixer be? Input impedance for the Behringer is 47 kOhm . Will that suffice? Thoughts? Recommendations? Insults? Poems? Thanks in advance. Cheers, Tobias
  6. Simply beautiful. That caught my eye as well. And an F-hole stamp/signature just does it for me. Have a great weekend with it. Regards, Tobias

    Congratulations on those two beautiful guitars. I might grill you with some questions once you have emerged from your music room in about two weeks... Enjoy. Cheers, Tobias

    Something about the looks of the three Gretsch-O-Trons threw me off at first. (Just an unfamiliar look to me, apart from having seen the sparkly gretschified Daytona in pictures). Now I see how balanced the guitar looks. Yep. What a great way to celebrate a birthday. Enjoy the heck out of it. Cheers, Tobias

    I like the suggestions that Veatch and BubbaVO made. The Shark's suggestion would work as well. I can't wait to see the outcome. Cheers, Tobias
  10. Nice, I'm envious. Have you considered taking the bass clarinet out of its case and playing it again? Amplified? Maybe with a Floyd Rose installed? Cheers, Tobias
  11. Hi Everyone, Apart from the usual suspects (Miles Davis, Coltrane , etc. ), it's been this guy for the last 20 years: Louis Sclavis Cheers, Tobias

    Wow, what a great set of features. And visually stunning as well. Would it be greedy to ask for more build pics (if you have some more, that is) ? I realize I'm being a jerk, but I can't get enough of this , living vicariously through all the fortunate Shishkov owners, I guess. Play it in good health. Cheers, Tobias E.T.A. The black humbucker cover and the knobs really tie the guitar together.
