shiscabob Posted March 31, 2010 Report Share Posted March 31, 2010 Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum, while I do visit it quite regularly, and I was having some problems with my sustainer I'm working on. First off I was wondering if when you make the driver, could you possibly use the drivers magnet AS the core, istead of having seperate pole pieces, etc. And if so, would it effect the tone, or overall output of the driver, as I am having problems with not getting any output whatsoever when I try to wind it.(i'm using wire from an extra sc pickup from a cheap strat) Im not sure whether it's the wire itself or if I'm not winding it enough times, and also what to do if the wire breaks( wire occasionally breaks when winding and was wondering if you could simply twist the end to another thread and keep winding) Next I was wondering what kind of capacitors are in the circuit( I used the ruby circuit as my pickups are fairly high in output) as of now on the pcb I made it has ceramic capacitors I believe(the round orange ones) rated at 47n and 100n. Lastly, i would appreciate some advice on the subject as I'm too lazy to read through 200+ pages in the sustainer thread. Thanks, Shiscabob.
