    I have a fishman pickup in a guitar
    When I turn the tone wheel adjuster at the sound hole I get static noise . Am assuming it's gotten dusty or something. Is there a simple fix for this ?

    Cheers folks


    If, indeed, dust is the issue, a quick blast with a can of compressed air (like those you get at computer stores) should fix it if. Beyond that, I'm clueless.
  2. In Topic:IB64 Texan problems with Nanoflex?

    21 April 2017 - 05:11 AM

    I had a crackling sound on my IB'64 Texan and I think I have isolated it to a loose battery pack issue. When you strum hard, the the battery thingie (the dohinkie holding the two batteries) seems to have some play in it. If I hold or tape the thingie down, it seems to go away. And it's not much of an issue when I play gently because the unit isn't moving that much.

    Not saying this is the cause of your problem, but I thought I'd mention it. Guitar electronics are always finding new and unique ways to fail.

    Oh sure they would, given the chance!

    Okay, so the G7th Heritage is finally the capo that works best for me. Took it on stage at an open mic last night with the J-45 (had a K&K installed) and it performed perfectly. I'm impressed. The thing will not, I repeat, will not pull any of the strings sharp regardless of how tight it's cranked........amazing. With just about any style capo this can be a problem, particularly as you go up the fingerboard with it. Being one that uses a capo most of the time it's comforting to know my tune will hold at any position. Expensive? Yeah, I guess so, but so are the guitars I use it on......

    Oh and the first public performance of Honeybee went down a storm (as they say across the pond!). Seems that this particular night at the joint was "rock band night". The place was packed but almost everyone there was part of one of the bands waiting to hit the stage. I played third behind bands playing Clapton, Free, Petty, Zeppelin.......loud too! And not a one of the players was content to use the host bands' gear.........they all hauled in bass amps, guitar amps, pedal boards, etc. of their own. Watching all this I commented to the guy across the table that I was tickled I only played acoustic guitar. I was the only solo player there and opened with a comment, "And now for something completely different......." It went well.........five originals and three cover tunes.

    Saw something I'd not seen before as well: the sound man was operating the PA with an iPad via Bluetooth. Wow. He's sitting out front with the iPad opening channels, dialing up levels, EQ and monitor sends. Cool. Anyone else seen such a rig in use?


    Glad the performance went well. I'm going to have to check out those capos next time I'm in the USofA.

    The bluegrass band I threw together last summer played a festival in my hometown in Illinois and the soundguy did the iPad thing. My first experience with it. Made soundcheck a snap. For one thing, he could do his own mic checks and adjust as he went along. No bored musician going "Mic check. Mic check. Check check check. One two three...."

    I did one other show where the soundguy used an iPad. Worked equally well.

    Looks sharp! You'll have to give us a road-test report.

    And it looks like nobody will walk off with it. Same reason I stencil my name on my guitar cases....
  5. In Topic:Avatar photo issue....

    Never mind. Somehow, some way, it's been fixed.

    Mik-- It is a heck of a job. I didn't do it myself, but had a buddy who was in luthiery school at the time do it. Send me your email address at dhanners55@gmail.com and I'll forward the email he sent me in which he described everything he did and how he did it. It's quite extensive. His work improved the sound.

    Looking at some old posts I read where you had the finish on your Texan sanded down. I'm thinking of doing this to a masterbilt did you do it yourself and how big a job was it or did you have it done for you. I can not see how thinning out the finish could not help the sound to improve. Anyhow thanks for any info in advance I enjoy reading your posts thanks Mick
