  1. Sublimarine We have eight records. Links off the discography and download tabs. All our music is free to download. I think selling music is stealing from the consumer. I also believe that because I provide music for free on the internet, I should get music for free on the internet. QED.
  2. I stole my own Myspace virginity.

  3. I'm pretty sure those things go through some kind of weirdo circuit. I'm not sure if you can keep the string channels separate.
  4. Lets say the G string has the coil turned on, and you play an open D and the open G at the same time. Surely the magnetic field will produce resonance in the G string because there is a G frequency in the signal, and surely the D frequency in the signal would just not do much at all because it'd have to be very powerful magnetic field with a frequency of D to get the G string resonating. Does that make sense at all or am I just being optimistic? Love From Samuel.
  5. I don't believe you'd need six sensors and six amps. If the six coils are in parallel they could easily be turned off by an on/off switch. I realise that they may have to be staggered, perhaps a humbucker kind of thing with three coils in each single coil. The driver I have made is from an old single coil pickup, and bending was sustained just as well as the single notes. I think this is because the poles are fairly close together and its not like its a beam of magnetic energy shooting out from the pole. Thats it, I'm going to make a triphonic coil and if thats a success I'll consider making a hexaphonic one. Didn't you all find that you had strings being magnetically induced into vibrating that you didn't want to when you were playing on some other strings?
  6. I don't know if anyone has ever mentioned this, but I think someone should. 30 AWG copper wire is 0.338 ohms/metre (http://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm) and using maths we can work out that you need approximately 23.669 metres of wire for an 8 ohm coil. This just takes the guess work out of it, I mean, dozens of places I've read that you do 'a hundred or two' turns. I vaguely recall talk of six coils, one per string. I do wonder where that discussion led, but you'd need approx. 142.012 metres all up (23.669 m per coil). Assuming they're coming off of the one amp and they're in parallel (to be able to turn them on and off), when only one coil is turned on it would have immense power pointed at one string (rather than the big six string drivers where the power is applied to six strings). Power equals voltage multiplied by current (maybe). The current will be divided between all the coils which are on, thus the more coils you have turned on the less power each one puts out but the total power is the same. I think three coils would be easier, especially if you use the pole pieces from pickups as the core (winding 24 metres of wire around those would make them big). Anyway, I hope this hasn't been all discussed before otherwise I'll get yelled at. Love From Samuel.
