MerlinTheWizard Posted July 26, 2005 Report Share Posted July 26, 2005 Hi all I'm building my own bass pickups. Right now, I have a prototype of humbucker with two bobins and an internal preamp. I now need to put all that in some kind of casing... I was thinking about molding the bobins in epoxy resin. What do you guys think? I've heard it tends to shrink a little bit while drying, and thus I'm afraid it might damage the bobins. I know some manufacturers use epoxy, but maybe not the same kind as I have. I plan on using this transparent epoxy resin... I also thought about a wooden case; but it's more work, and I'm afraid of the vibrations (whereas in epoxy, nothing would move at all). Since my internal preamp has kinda high gain, my humbucker is pretty sensitive to vibrations (microphonics) even though I already potted the bobins. Any other idea? Oh, and I'll post pictures soon.
