Guitar Tone Capacitors, part 1: Evaluating Material Types was uploaded by: johnplanetz Duration: 625 Rating:
Here’s a comparison of Guitar Tone Capacitors, via johnplanetz:
In part one of this video on tone capacitors, I demonstrate the sound characteristics of 7 different capacitors with dialectrics of different material types.
The caps I try here are: Orange Drop 225P 100V (polypropylene), Mallory 150 series (metallized polyester film), Russian K-409 PIO (paper in oil), mystery vintage yellow cylinder (identified as WMF 1S22 Polyester Film 100v from CDE Cornell Dubilier), the original Epi tone cap from my Riviera (probably mylar polyester film), mystery vintage gray cylinder (identified as Mullard/Phillips Mustard polyester foil/film 630v), and a vintage tropical fish (polyester film).
Everything is played on my Epiphone Riviera P93 with Vintage Vibe Guitars P-90 pickups, through my Vox VT30 on the Boutique Clean model, mic’d with a Rode NT1 large diaphragm microphone.
In the part two, I’ll demonstrate how the capacitance value affects the range and usefulness of the tone knob.
Moog Lap Steel Explorations Part 2 was uploaded by: BillWalkerGuitar Duration: 583 Rating:
Moog Lap Steel Explorations Part 2 – a live looping improvisation by Bill Walker, using the new Moog Lap Steel and Looperlative LP-1.
The improvisation features the usage of the guitar’s onboard filters, and using an Ethos preamp for distortion, in tandem with the Moog guitar’s infinite sustain capability to get a high volume feedback response at a low volume,
The LP-1 is being controlled by a Gordius Little Giant MIDI controller and an iPhone using the OSC app and a Missing Link WiFi to MIDI adaptor.
These are shots of the prototypes of Max Battaglia’s prototype Hyper Touch Guitar:
Introducing the Hyper Touch Guitar. From the mind of Max Battaglia at Givingshape Design Studio, this unorthodox design replaces strings with a multi-touch screen, allowing the user to adjust the number of “strings” and frets, as well as tuning and sound effects. A wireless command center that permits endless customization and infinite possibilities of expression.
Unfortunately, the Hyper Touch Guitar is just a design concept at this point. Looks pretty cool, though!
