EDIT: moved to Effects Devices by sumgai, 2/22/17 - concerns an effects device problem, not a guitar wiring problem. PM sent to jean at the same time.
My new guitar is almost finished but meeting with one last problem :(#
A bit of general description, it is a customed master built guitar with lot of electronics:
- piezo Ghost
- ModBoard TB-1
- XY midi pad
- 3 batteries checked by LoBat systems
- Tronical autotune mechanics
- kill switch in volume pot
The chain is as follow pickup->Sustainer->Modboard->Piezo->9 pin jack (offering stereo options). The 9 pin jack switch on the sustainer and the Ghost preamp when a jack cable is inserted.
The sustainer has is own battery and powers a solid state relay to switch on the XY Midi pad (with its own battery)
The Ghost preamp has as well its own battery and I'm using the power out to switch and power the Modboard (which drains less than 1mA)
Every things is now running EXCEPT... part of the ModBoard.
Here is description of the pb:
I wanted to connect it as Buffered Out, but then the output signal was extremely low, almost none. As soon as I switch the board on, it seems to work. If I wire it as "true bypass mode" it seems to work. I don't wanna use this output mode as the pop sound when activating the effect is really noticable.
Here is how I wired it:
- MB Input ground: to general ground (bridge/volume pot)
- MB Input Hot: from out signal from Volume pot (maybe for this specific point I should go first to board then to volume, what do you think?)
- MB Buffered Bypass Out: to mag input of Ghost preamp (similar when I use the "True Bypass" Out)
- MB Output ground: to ground by connected on the Ghost board ground
- MB Battery Black: to ground by connected on the Ghost board ground
- MB Battery Red: power aux from Ghost board
I'm using the tone push-push as switch to activate the board (connected to J3/J4) and a 100k push-pull poti for switching the wah/boost and controlling effect (connected to J1 and J2 respectively).
Any help will be welcome...
