Killswitch


b5111987

Recommended Posts

The easiest, quietest possible killswitch simply shorts the hot lead to ground - doing anything else makes little or no sense, and could easily cause noise and hum problems. BTW, this has been discussed at length here - a quick search would have told you that. :D

Dang that pic is budget!

And I wouldn't do it that way(you'll probably get pops and clicks like that, depending on the actual switch)

hey this works perfectly with no pops or anythihg the live just connect to the ground when you flick the switch and absoloutly no sound comes out at all

if u dont belive me try it and see

It will depend on the switch. I have to choose my swithces carefully or buy from the armeys. Sorry I should have mentioned that we really only get break before makes at the shops round here(or they dont say and the geeks in the shop dont know) so my modded guitars usually make pops and clicks with the pickup selectors.(although i think it gives vintage character not heard since the old blues records)

But still, any body with somat between their ears would call that post a lame plug of your site, and I call it spam.

edit: learn some basic grammer, and I wont even say anything bout your lame spam!

Alex, ... :D "some basic grammer"? Glass houses, and all that.

OMG, I'll just shut up. But also, grammar ain't spelling(and I'm kinda surprised I spelt it wrong). :D

And hey I failed english so don't diss. But at least I use commas and that stuff.

edit : And now I've thought about it: replace grammer with punctuation.

:D Even in NZ, English isn't exactly a foreign language - anyway, I made my point, so I won't point out the punctuation errors in the quote above (hint: you're missing some commas and stuff). :D

I kid because I care! B)

Well, it varies a bit to Armey English.

And believe it or not, that was a deliberate punctuation mistake. Just testin' ya after you spotted my bad Engrich.

But hey, I ditched school to escape the English lessons, I'll not diss the people that don't use ANY punctuation, you dont diss my bad spelling. I think thats fair.

hi, i'm new.

just thought i'd say i'm doing stuff to my bass, including a killswitch. (i'll post up more info in another thread).

i have an EMG for it, and asked emg if i could put a killswitch in it.

they told me that you can, just break the red power wire and bridge it with a switch.

just thought anyone with EMG's might like to know this useful info.

Brian :D

:Dthis has really brightened my day, guys....thanks :D

Yeah ask me...no hang on I asked you...how do you "stop the pop"...

Hey, that's not bad..."stop the pop"...perhaps I'm an antipodean poet or something...New Zealander's talk english, ay...do they, ay...I suppose you think all us far southerner's talk funny, cobber, mate...bunch of fn w*%ke2s taking the mickey out of a bunch of stranded convicts...Why if I were Canadian, I'd cross that boarder...oh hang on they don't speak english proper either...

Anyway...here's a few extra punctuation marks ....,,,,!!!!!???? in case I ever leave anything out and, here's some i's before e's just in case ie ie ie and, in case I want to spell their, here's some e's before i's ei ei ei for good measure, and as for grammar...here's a few joining words, at a the and, and, because my posts are so long, you might want to insert etc at any given point and move on to the next paragraph

Oh, that was a new paragraph....and here comes another...

Is there, or was there ever a question here... B)

Try wiring your switch to the mains...that way...Zap, pow, pop, boom, crackle, sizzle, your dead...now that's what I call a kill switch..... B)

Just for further kicks...JC (is that the Messiah?) GuitarMods has some fantastic stuff...so don't diss (or is that dis?)...check out this page:

JC's spelling for beginners...suitable for people of all ages and kiwi's ;-)

for instance...

....umbucker without a coil tap....
possibly a kind of unbrella with a twisty straw that allows you to drink the rainwater directly from the sky...

....for illistration purpose's only....

Obviously...not for actual use in the real world, I trust...still, creativity comes in many forms...let's not stifle it...and brace you're errrors.... :D

it is for illistration purposes only as in real life it looks like just one humbucker

i said this for the dumbasses out there who would get there motherbucker and go "duh em im missin two more things that are attached to the other things duh"

and as for the spelling mistake i did it in a rush as i was putting it up for a friend to look at and i didnt check my spelling

Well for all of 10 seconds of searching it through up those results to do with "kill swtiches"

B)   :D

~~ Slain Angel ~~

and so what when i wanted a kill switch and sercher on google i found nothing apart from mini switch's n crap like that

OUCH sorry :D

Just thought you should realise that users of PG forums usually have the common decency to use the search feature before starting a new topic...

Also usually users dont go at another user just because they offer a reasonable sensible soloution to a problem...

*wondered why he bothered with the first post*
