Any of you guys have experience with adding (a Fishman or other) piezo to your bass? Thinking of getting some kind of cheap solution, preferably something that I can install myself (to save money, needs to be pretty simple though) and just order off of thomann.de or ebay.
Ideally, it would be cool to just add it internally to the Bartolini pre-amp system (or in combination with) and perhaps just changing one of the control knobs to one that has two controls in one knob, to control the blend of the piezo. I don't think I'm "ready" to change out the Hipshot bridge for one with built in piezo, as I kinda like the one that's in it now (mostly because I'm able to adjust the string spacing - I ideally would like a bridge with a slimmer string spacing, right now I'm pushing it at around 15.6+ mm, but would like to go down to about 15mm)...Any advice, pic's etc. is very welcome
Another question: I always have the switch that changes the polarity/direction of the magnets, in one position (to the right) - it sounds hollow, and static and weird if I switch to the other polarity.
So I was thinking, since I don't use that switch, but it's there, and it's soldered to the system - I could probably use it for something else, like a bypass switch (or a switch/knob for the piezon blend?). Anyone got other ideas for a cool use of such a switch?
I need advice on that, and how to technically do it. I can handle a soldering iron, but don't have other technical equipment, so I need to know which wires to unsolder and put elsewhere
I'm 90% sure it has the TBT 9volt pre-amp system (might be NTBT -the volume trim inside, covers the model name, but it ends with BT and looks like there's not room enough for it to say NTBT underneath the blue volume trim thingy, that's glued on it with superglue), but none of the Bartolini diagrams show anything about that switch, guess it's something Warrior chose to put in it (like a lot of other manufacturers) - only problem is, it does no good sound wise, so I'd rather have the setting it's at now, be there always, and use the switch for something cool.
