You can check on this with serial numbers., but perhaps Sheldon could give us some guidance.
That's not how exponnents work lol
Phew, I'll be able to sleep tonight !
yeah I'm doing a full-blown video on YouTube later maybe by the end of the month or early June
So - I'm assuming that the Sklar 3x's have three Super Fatty 2 pickups?
Have a look inside to make sure the switch prong isn't pinching a wire against the body or that the prong itself isn't contacting the body.
Agreed. I'm the bassist who wishes I started on guitar...
I was gonna call you and let you know you could exhale, but I got busy playing. My bad...
Sweet! Interested in hearing your thoughts.
I did open it up, but I had some other, intricate, tech work I had to do while I was in there. It was very delicate work...
If you need someone at the shop that just pretends like they know what they're doing, hit me up, I'm your guy...BAHAHAHA!
Thanks hopefully it'll be useful to you
Sheldon explained that Dingwall was now number two manufacturer in Canada, behind Godin, at the last promo event I went to (for the D-Bird.) He only specified the number of units and how many were Canadian. I could be wrong on my estimates though, it has been a little bit. I would also imagine the number has increased with the increased production capacity.
Do you mean exponents? I am not sure what you are trying to say with this comment. The introduction of the cheaper import lines did exponentially increase Dingwalls overall sales numbers. They sold a fraction of the instruments prior to their roll-out.
I’ve got two sets on the way. Looking forward to giving them a try.
Anyone here put a string tree on their AB? Getting an open string rattle on my E and A that goes away if I hold the strings behind the nut. Thinking about putting a Super series tree on it but don’t know if there’s any physics I should consider first or if it’s safe to just pop one on where it makes sense.
Did you cut them to length before installation?
DR's are round core and if you do not kink them before cutting them the wrap will slide from the core resulting in them sounding like dead flats. Read the inside of your DR Strings box for more information.
Worn nut perhaps? Try the shrink tube trick first which could help determine if the funds are better placed in a new nut vs the tree that may not fit very well.
Thanks, Nate! The nut looks good though. Could be the thinner gauge of the SS custom set combined with tuning to Eb.
I think a Super Series style string tree would look a little weird. If I were to do it, I might be more inclined to go with a bar type of thing like the Combustions or Laklands. Or maybe one of the newer NG things.
Probably. I know with the flats I put on my fretless I have a small buzz to deal with on my A as well. I just haven’t had the chance to even deal with it yet. I’ll be shrink tubing it soon.
Are you making sure to get a few wraps of the string around the tuner post. The will increase the angle of the string after the nut. Just a thought.
Test fitting 1st new Pickguard for my SJ5 conversion
That's gonna look sweet.
Yeah you cant really get a few wraps on the ABs though, they're different than the super series or z series. They've got countersunk tuning machines with a scalloped post designed to hold the single wrap at a low angle. Sheldon has definitely put some serious engineering into remediating this issue without string trees, but it's still there. It was sort of a common issue on my super series basses with the a string too but I never really worried about it cause it doesn't come through the amp. It's just been bothering me a bit playing unplugged and a little bit more break angle closer to the nut would definitely solve the problem.
