and women might add to that
The man likes his Ibanez axes!!.. I like 'em too!!..
I can dig having a battery for a Sustainiac, otherwise, Nah, not for me... I have learned, throughout the years how to tweak my EQ through amp, guitar and pedal settings..
Not for me.
and I threw out my wireless keyboard and mouse as well.
I need less things to run a battery, not more.
and I am happy with my old crusty Luddite pickups.
The Fishman Fluence pickups Greg Koch uses in his signature guitars supposedly go 300 hours between charges. They sound great.
I love love love my Lincoln Brewster Strat. Nitro finished, not true to any time period freak combo of old and new with a 9 volt battery and all. Although I recognize he’s an amazing artist it’s not even my style but oh my gosh that guitar picked me; not the other way around. We break our normal rules for things we love.
I love my standard config ones too.
Yep. Telefunken. Neumann.
Bro, I’m a guitar player, not a spare batter checker storer guy!
What is this battery powered circuit you speak of? (All 3 of my electric basses are equipped this way!)
Here is the story behind the Lawrence Q filter. As usual there is an attenuation of the signal. On a Strat bridge pickup you want an increase in mids and output.
This thing has potential on a guitar. Great range and stability.
What about your effects pedals?
All DC powered. The one battery operated item in my rig is the wireless transmitter. But the Line 6 G10 is so convenient to keep charged. The old replaceable battery wireless systems I would never use.
Cool, I know people who have batteries in their effects too in case the power supply ceases to work.
To all and sundry. Below is a video on how the Lawrence W filter works. I get the feeling it’s best suited to high output pickups.
Hi , @mark1406
I am a bit puzzled. I would think an individual player could just choose if they want active pickups or active tone knob with battery etc.?
I was wondering what the average player thought?
In this age of Kempers and AXEFX etc, have guitarists changed their view on what an electric guitar is.
On one hand I get plugging into a non master volume head and playing music, though effects are popular so getting creative with all things might have gathered pace.
And Chris Kinman designed and made the best pickups without active electronics. Just passive, so perfectly made and totally hum-free.
Please tell my you still have that exact set of clothes and wear them regularly.
You’re preaching to the choir about Kinman pickups, I had a set of Mark 1 pickups in my Strat. I A/Bed them against normal single coils and they were as good if not better.
However, the point is are we ready to rethink what the electric guitar is. Active pickups, active tone controls, sustainor pickup etc, etc, etc.
