Can I add S/C switch to Nordy NJ4SV ?
Got a Nordy NJ4 SV side by side humbucking Jazz at the bridge on my passive Areo 1 P/J Bass, and was wondering if i can simply add a mini switch to the control plate to flip between humbucking and single coil ?
I'd need a diagram of where the wires connect to - too dumb to figure this out myself ( i can cook pasta, but lectronix goes over my head )
The Nordy jazz pup is either split or dual - not sure what the correct term is. I guess most here know what they are, but just in case..
Nope. It's not that kind of humbucker.
OK, thanks Rojo. This could be the shortest thread ever ;)
I'm sure we could go into more detail, if you wanted, though :D
I dont mind a bit of education, bud. :)
What the hey is different about this humby that means its un-single coilable ? Is that even a proper word :cool:
How this pickup is made is kind of like a P bass pickup. It's essentially 2 small single coil pickups, wired series, and mounted right next to each other. I also believe that one is wound opposite the other and that prevents hum (though better experts can clarify that).
They put it together in a way that can't be "rewired" without a lot of trouble, so it just has 2 leads: black and white.
(if yours has a grey wire, it's only to connect the pickup's sheilding to a ground on the bass.)
Pickups like the Dimarzio Jazz pickups can be wired "series" or "parallel" because they are built to allow that. Each of the side-by-side coils has a "+" and "-" lead that can be wired to a switch or fixed permanently as either. BUT... if you did a "split", you'd only end up with 1/2 of the pickup functioning, ala the E and A would work, not the D and G.
If you find a pickup that is humbucking and has 2 coils built like this:
you could wire them with a split because they'd cover the entire span of the strings. But most bass pickups like that are like:
and those won't fit into the cavity you have.
I hope that helps.
You coudn't have put that any simpler , pal
I might end up moving the Nordy on for a typical S/C J pup, as I prefer the tone
Good luck in the search for another, you have a ton of options to choose from.
Cheers - yeah mind bending amount of options, but think i will go for old school tone 60'/70's J
One other thing rojo - can you point me to an online schematic with pretty pictures for how a P/J bass with S/C in the J position would be wired ?
Its ok - found 100's !
