if electronics aint be the problem Space is tricky management and if that not all interference is not on paper.Doing this and preserving original body routing makes it all more fun…you did not see the front yet…its the first guitar i am working on 2 sides at same time..see u late
Right today the 2 april 2017 and all electronics problems fixed.1 Sustainer using Neodymium on half the humbucker.2 Other half humbucker connected to harmony effect board.3 Sustainer modified for instant attack at the push of button4 Harmony mode rotary non parallel5 Pitch sound modified for transparency keeping all frequency6 Fast attack Sustainer7 Harmony board ON/OF8 Sustainer continuous ON/OFF no click9 Balance harmony /normal10 Driver sustainer parasite magnetic free11 ROM extra card integrated and activeOn the back the 2 sustainer switch are cut and not active.I just kept them as a way to fixe circuit to the Guitar compartment

The battery cavity is still free and working but I mostly work on power adapter.The guitar is now perfect and no noise parasite but just nice clean output from both channel.I am using a split box configurated with separated output via different plugs..jack…cinch..mini headphone jack.Right on guys..i m sure you all just want to hear something…soon soon..for now I am enjoying the work the sound and above all ..to be the only one in the world to have a guitar as this…no money can buy…only your brain set the target.
The use of Neodymium give the hexaphonic pickup a more ascendant oscillation to the strings thereforeSynth glitch almost disapear living me with no compromising my playing
A words about the use of neodymium pickup and why guitar pickup makers did not comercialised it must be down to the fact that they did not got the subtility to understand how to used it.Let me just give you a quick example of what it is to be able to play with neodymium.Think of the difference between a big black hole and a small one.More precisely the difference of point of no return.On the big one the space and time where you can navigated before you will hit the red line of black hole destruction is larger…this is the traditional magnet…you pick the string sofly or harder in a scale force that is large enough to not get sound clipping…while this was good more or less ALL strings company sounded the same after a while .There is a other world much shorter and very rich in sound and this for as long as the strings are covered !!!…Right..the small black hole will let you get much much closer and will start his attraction for less than a inch before you are overwelmed .THIs one inch is the space your strings will give a sound you could only hear before with new strings set for about a couple of hours before losing freshness.Therefore I educated my hand to understand all sounds variation in a one inch scale and believe me its a rich world where harmonics really different depending of what metal strings makers are offering and how you touch your strings.Placement height of neodymium pickup is crucial and depend what neodymium force you have and where it is made !!..In this small workable world you will discover everything new and a other touch..i did not say old world was bad..i loved J.Hendrix.TOFMELON
Short test video of neodymium and preset blend with hardware on board.So far latency is minimal .Glitches absent and I feel free.As I tune my guitar on random I get pleasant surprise on intelligent harmony mode.Very pure sound and with a reverb will make it huge.11/04
Perfecling the guitar did some shopping and work on the axe 17/04..see u soon!!
All is going great..add a few things that was on board but not in fonction…by next week you will get the video of the work and later feeling to go for a Steve Hacket mood music..stars of Syrius 20/04/2017
Roland JAPAN founder Kakehashi dies at 87Thank you from all of us.My life was a continuous interest in the great products from Roland music..TB303 TR909 Guitar synth GR505 et so much more.TOFMELON 22/04/2017
My job today the /04/2017So i went to the shop and as soon as i got home i disassembled the pedal and cut the big foot switch in order to reduce the circuit size and fit it to my guitar pg380 in place of the battery compartment wish i did not used in anyway.I added a small switch on my front pickguard and connected this distortion effect right before everything onboard .It was not easy to cut all the unused components from circuit.Was thinking to cut the 10k 50k and 500k to install flat one and do the setting one for all but i will have a go as it is now.Eventually change the 500k to 1 meg and get more metal disto…well will see…for now its good…video later folks..tomorrow Sunday relax
If fake news are part of our life do not think music news are much different.Music equipment is overloaded with videos of guys preaching the ultimate in sound effect box.Reality is not exactly what you think.A brief example was my first job in a music shop where the boss asking me to demonstrate a cheap guitar to a kid…yes his mother bought it…just with my skill of playing i could have played on anything..and honestly that was a smoke i did once and quit the job. It is a life where you will learn by yourself…everything..music…electronics…chips fonctions…magnetic..software..hardware..analogic…digital..format..and so much more.Go to basic the transistor because it is the brain of early circuits..then go to chips and clock to understand why the impossible became possible…with all you learn some will adapted to making bomb and some to making music and new sounds…its your choice.You can fight for the sound ! tofmelon 23/04/2017
Hope everybody round the world had a nice Sunday.So finally Sunday i changed something that was bothering me a lot.Many of my equipment had led so bright that i could not even see the whats written near the knobs.I reduced intensity to the correct brightness and fell so much better
