Jazzy -The tonemonster diagram on GN gives you all the options for one, two or three pups in series, or in parallel. I have built another design, that also does this. also adding a phase switch. (see the tone monster thread on this site). The sounds would be the same for each design, or for any design that gives you the same wiring combinations. Are there particular combos you are interested in? Id be happy to attempt two or three MP3 clips (probably this weekend), unless someone else can point to some sooner.
The sounds would all depend o the pups of course. Mine are fairly meaty ceramic single coils, as part of the '80's Hondo Strat copy that I tested my design on.
They feature my reworked Hondo Strat copy, with its original ceramic single coils.
The clips are all directly injected into the computer via an old tape deck as a preamp, with no effects added. Each clip is one just recording – plain vanilla. In each, I have attempted to switch between several pickup combos, without falling in a big heap on the floor. The changes are all made by flicking one toggle. I hope it is clear from the changes in tone where the transitions happen.
My favourite new sounds are all in series (its so loud), and BN in series out of phase (end of clip1)
Clip1 - is as follows: 1. bridge 2. bridge and middle in series 3. bridge, middle and neck in series 4. bridge, middle and neck in series (neck out of phase) 5. bridge and neck (neck out of phase)
I have a few thoughts on the various circuits that make these sounds, which I'll save fro another post – there are several versions of designs with toggle switches for series and parallel, including Wolf’s, Dan Armstrong’s, the original Tonemonster on Guitar nuts, and also my design which I used for the clips They all have various advantages. One thing I would add to those without, is a phase switch. Easy to do, but not provided on the original TM or the Dan armstrong design.
