yetanotherchris Posted January 4, 2007 Report Share Posted January 4, 2007 Ok folks, I'm preparing my second reworking of an old guitar, and I've had a bit of an odd idea for a kind of 'killswitch/tremolo'. Basically what I want to do is have a toggle switch on the guitar where the output goes to the jack. In one position the output just goes to the jack as normal. Consider it the 'off' position for the 'tremolo'. In the other position the output is rerouted through an LDR (Light Dependent Resistor) mounted on the front of the guitar. When there's lots of light hitting the LDR, the signal is unaffected. But if there's little/no light (ie when I pass my hand over the LDR) the volume is reduced/cut. What I really need is some advice on components/wiring. For example, Maplin stocks loads of LDRs, but I don't know which would work for my purposes. http://www.maplin.co.uk/SEODynamicPages/mo...asp?ModNo=35962 Also, how best to wire in the LDR and toggle switch, and whether any other components would be needed... any advice would really be appreciated! Thanks folks! Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
