      I understand. There is a beginner project on diystompboxes.com. It's a simple booster with a minimal parts count. It's a great place to start and it sound fantastic.

      The layout is available in vero form. I tried posting a link to it but wasn't allowed for some reason. Search for Random Number Generator Vero and look in google images. I bet it'll show up.
      I'd feel kinda bad selling one since Doug from Mid Fi Electronics has been cool enough to share this with us.
      If you are in to the DIY thing join the forum at diystompboxes.com helpful people and tons of layouts and schematics.

      Hey Voyce. Are you still interested in a RNG? Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

      Hey, man
      Cool :) I only have 3 single coil routes though that's why I was thinking JB Jr., D. Allen something, or Duncan LIl 59 when I have the funds..Thoughts?

      I know it wouldn't be quite the same sound as a fullsize one, but I do have a reg. HB guitar for when I need that sound :) . Just want a bit more oomph in the bridge pos. on my Strat,lol.

      Thanks!

      Hey, man
      Thanks for the pickup tip :) . So maybe when I have the funds, something like a Duncan JB Jr. might be cool/have more clarity since it has two blades instead of just one? I do like how the JB sounds fullsize,lol.

      having one pickup with 2 tones would probably work similarly to when you have a strat in the neck/middle position where you have 2 tones and you roll one back and it rolls the treble off and you roll the other one back and it doesn't really do anything because there aren't hardly any treble frequencies to bleed off.

      the higher the load the less highs you'll have in your circuit. a 250k pot works on an hss setup because there's no tone on the bridge pickup, so the 250k load would be the same as a 500k volume and 500k tone on a normal humbucker setup.
    9. stratphobic

      it does. 250k pots put twice as much of a load on the circuit and the higher the load on the circuit, the more high frequencies will bleed off.

      that's crazy that it sounds too muddy. i have a strat that i can put the neck and middle pickups or middle and bridge pickups in series and it has 250k pots and it doesn't sound muddy, although i'm considering no load pots for the tone controls. anyway, i think you'll be happy with the super distortion. it's a powerful pickup with a high output, but it's not the least bit muddy.

      Voyce,

      Found this in a search for additional nfo related to Blade Runner users.

      Looks great. How much is it affected by string bending?

      Like all floating trems , bending strings will cause the other strings to go down in pitch .. A Tremsetter or Tremol-No is the solution to this problem.

      I'm not worrying about it .. I rest my hand on the bridge to prevent this if I need to do bends while sustaining an open string or note

      So, it's beginning to sound like yet another piece of hardware will be required to keep it from going out of tune after a bend. I am getting into blues now and bending, so this is NOT good!

      Any input?

      Some other guy is talking about a Trem King. Guess I'll read up on that too. Man, it sure is difficult to deal with a Strat and all it's deficiencies.

      Later!

      I believe you either have me confused with somebody else, or misunderstood my post. If you can find the post in question, send the link to me in a PM. I'd like to sort this out.

      Not sure what you are asking for. Explain please.

      the shields block the electromagnetic interference, which causes some of the hum in guitars, especially in single coils. on your setup, you should just use 500k pots for volume and tone
    16. stratphobic

      you can do that, but with the pickups in a humbucking configuration it won't make a big difference. most of the guitars that are shielded are SSS or HSS setups

      idk if the magnet pull of a regular configuration really affects the string pull that much, but the main reason my strat only has one pickup is because i like the clean look of the single pickup and i couldn't find a neck pickup i liked
    18. stratphobic

      individually, probably a 250k pot, but in series you should use a 500k pot like you would with a normal humbucker

      i tought i could just use some tape and wrap it a few times on the places you have to soldier... now that i see its so cheap.. i guess i dont have to settle for anything.

      oh. yeah, that can be a problem. you should be able to find one somewhere like a hardware store. my current soldering iron is actually a wood burner, which is used for like burning words and pics and stuff into wood. it's pretty much the same thing as a soldering iron, but it has a shorter shaft. if you can find one of those, they're usually prety inexpensive and they work great.
