    Hi.

    I have buy and obp-3 preamp and a j-east buffer for the piezo, and i am little lost.

    It´s for a project that i´m building, is my first piezo wiring and i don´t understand few things.

    It´s an ETS bridge, there is a cable from each saddle. First question.

    The inner wire is the hot and the outher cold?

    I´ve attached de j-east buffer diagram.

    There are four imputs for magnetics pickups (mixer imputs). I can put the pickup signal there and them take the mix trough the buffer to the aguilar preamp. Or i can put the piezo imput to the buffer and the magnetic pickups to the aguilar. Damn, there are a lot of options:help:, volume for each pickup or two tone control........

    What do you thing would be the best diagram?


    ......and sorry for my bad english:bag:

    Nobody can help me?

    Or my english just sucks?:p
     
  3. its not your english. i think everyone is a little confused. it would be better to see the actual bridge or to know what colors the wires were. im a little fuzzy so i dont wanna specify colors as to mess up your bass or anything, but more info would be usefull

    Well, i´ve attached two photos.

    I´m thinking that the bridge mass could be the cold:meh:

    Maybe I can help?

    What are you trying to achieve?

    Some questions:

    * Do you want EQ on mag alone or piezo and mag?

    * Do you want volume/volume or volume/blend between the mag and piezo?

    Hi, yeah you are the man;)

    It would be easier email you but i want some other opinions because i don´t put my hands in any piezo. But thats great.

    You are saying that the piezo can be equalized in bass/middle/high? I thought that the only option was the tone knob :hyper:

    Well, i wish an EQ in both.

    And in the other way, i think volume/volume would be better than the volume/blend.

    Any suggestion is welcomed anyway;)
