    Necessary for single coils, yes, but not for humbuckers in my experience. I use the tape as well, but make sure you connect all the cavities together and connect them to ground or else it doesn't do much good.

    I may try the shielded wire method since I have a lot of that already. One thing that seems to be good about the foil is that you can connect it to the underside of the pickguard if you have static issues with the pickguard like on a Fender

    Very cool Dub [thumbup] Kind of reminds me of what I go for on my builds.. Familiar but slightly different :)

    And talk of builds... :)

    Did my first ever shielding on a guitar today.. My LPs don't have shielding and neither have my other builds so far and ive never had issues with interference. Soo.. BUT for what ever reason I decided that this build wanted it and of course some experience with it is always a good thing too. So here we are :)

    Whats your views on shielding? Necessary?

    Anyway... so I have that copper tape stuff.. Pretty easy to do really, you just need some kind of tool with a rounded end like the handle of a screwdriver and run it round just making sure the tape is as flat as it will go and all secure.

    Thanks Rabs!

    I haven't shielded any of my guitars yet but I need to. Apparently a properly shielded guitar doesn't do that thing where it buzzes until you touch one of the grounded metal parts. Should be a really good thing supposedly

    I'm kinda intrigued. I don't use any stereo effects but this seems like it would actually be really nice for listening to the iPod etc

    John North Wright - TEENAGE, TEENAGE VOLLEYBALLERS. Learn it, live it, love it!
    Will check out your new recordings. Cannot wait to hear more of your killer riffing and freak out the squares tone.
    Have you heard this OD pedal - Germ by Prescription Electronics? It's a Ge OD + booster. So gritty. I want one, badly.

    ProCo is great. I miss them because I had a friend that worked there. He built me a Rat once and I used to get their cables cheap.
    Don't worry about the Small Stone knob. I am kind of digging the pink chicken head. It says this pedal is a freak; squares beware!

    Brother, been meaning to write and say how much I am digging my Small Stone now. She's so rich and creamy; very different animal than my Phase90. Thanks again.

    btw nothing wrong with putting your rack tom in a basket. I like that better than mounting it to the kick drum.

    Wow! That is a killer drum set. The quilted finish reminds me of a vintage Gretsch kit. Bet they sound amazing. Glad to see he uses coated heads too (I think they have better tone).

    Are there any good schematics for the Klon? I heard the orig builder would put black goop over the components to mask them; not unlike the Harmonic Percolator.

    Pretty sweet, eh? Very different tone wise from a TS9. I run them like this
    1. Fuzz Factory (so it can oscillate)
    2. F-word Overdrive (set for medium dirt)
    3. OD808 (set for very light dirt)
    The OD808 is brighter so it freshens up the F-word.

    I'm liking the Wee Beaver Fuzz, but for $155 its a lot for a small little pedal.
