In response for the too often remark 'one trick pony'
Help w/ switch settings please. N=8.8 B=8.1 V= full
All sw on its silent
Turning T off there is V
Leaving T off turning B off reduces V slightly
Turning R to S increases V
All sw off no V
Turning S to R there's V
With S, B on, T off, there's V (loudest setting)
With S, B off, T on, it's silent
All sw off its silent
With R, B off, T off, there's V
With R, B on, T off, there's V
Again, all sw on it's silent
I'm sure there are other combinations but this is the general idea. My question is, is this all correct? Should there be Volume at any combination of settings?
Anyone know whatever happened to Tahoe_Ed? He started this club and haven't seen him around in some time.
I shared a bunch of Hofner videos in another thread. I'll have to post some here!
You posted five of them here.
Yes! I was a bit frustrated by some saying Hofners are 'one trick ponies'. Hence my post.
Thank you for posting those here.
One is only limited by their imagination.
The ground goes to the metal tailpiece.
If you switch Treble On and Bass On at the same time, you'll kill the output, because each switch turns off the opposite pickup (which changes the loading and thus the tone, along with the capacitor each switch activates). There should be sound at all other settings. (I answer your question more elaborately in the thread you started: Settings help on 500/1 please)
I gave up on the Hofner switching which was sometimes intermittent and converted my Ignition Club bass to V/V/T controls.
Since getting the 58, I've really been getting into the controls which are vtvt.
That bass is so beautiful! Love it!
Thanks so much! The controls are much more intuitive than the switches, though I have learned to overcome them.
I never understood why they abandoned that control setup. Besides being more flexible and intuitive, it just plain looks classy.
Yeah, I think it's a better aesthetic for a curvy, violin-shaped instrument. We're all used to the control panel look, but a plastic rectangle set at an angle in what should otherwise be one of the most beautiful basses seems rather slap-dash.
Even better-looking than the 'control egg' in the '58 is the three-knob design in the Green Line.
Yes, that's very nice and functional and would be much better looking on my Club but not as unique looking as the egg on the violin.
I like the panel and switches myself. I think one motivation for a control panel over just knobs is the ability to work on the electronics. That doesn't explain using the rectangle panel over the oval one, of course.
Thanks, I agree. I like the ability to be able to blend the pickups and tone separately.
I want to thank all of you who made constructive comments. Wow.
