I got me a nice old Warrior Soldier 5 string fretless (from 2001) with two bartolini soapbar pickus, a volume knob with passive or active mode (passive disables the eq's), a pickup blend, a bass, a treble, and a switch that changes the direction of the magnets (or something along those lines)
I always have the switch in one position - 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. 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. Perhaps even put in a "volume" type of knob, instead of the switch and put in a piezo of some type (would love advice/suggestions on that too - without changing out the bridge)
