octafish Posted September 5, 2005 Report Share Posted September 5, 2005 (edited) I've used piezo-electric pickups in a few applications (ukelele, cigar box, a percussion bicycle) but I have always used an off board buffer and EQ. I am finishing off some half-done and half-baked projects before I get started on a proper guitar project. One of these is a cigar box guitar with a piezo and on board tone and volume controls. I realize I'd be pushing it uphill trying to keep it passive so I'll be using an onboard buffer (jfet or opamp, I haven't decided yet). The question is: After the buffer what sort of tone control should I use? I was hoping to use a simple cap to ground tone and voltage divider volume arangement as in an electric guitar. Any recomendations for pot and cap values? After a buffer I should be able to use a low value for volume like 100K yes? Thanks in advance for your advice. edited for spelling Edited September 5, 2005 by octafish Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
