J bass parallel/ series switch

  1. Now, I know this post has been done, but it always get off track. Does anyone have a DIAGRAM to wire a jazz bass for a parallel/series switch. I know what the difference in tine will be, yes I want to do it, but can someone out there PLEASSSSE draw me a diagram.

    Thanks
     
  2. You sold me my EAW cab- I still have it. The diagram you seek is in a book called "Electric Bass Guitar", which I have. Email me and I'll get you a copy.

  3. Here's what I do...it's dead simple.

    You bridge one end of a 6 pin on/on switch (either a mini switch or a push pull. I have used both). The rest of the connections should be obvious.

    In series mode, only one of the volume controls works.

    There is a way of wiring which maintains individual volume controls, but I have never bothered. This gives me what I need.
     
  4. Thanks

    This isn't working though. Could it be because I have active EMG's?
