Help with OBEL junction box?

Help with OBEL junction box?

Postby BDI » Sun Apr 15, 2012 7:22 pm

I'm putting together an OBEL box similar to the "hubbub" and "the wheel". In another thread (http://rukind.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=309&t=8528) there was a layout for the wiring but it didn't include the toggle for when yer using a non-OBEL guitar. I tried to figure it out myself but my wiring experience hasn't taken me past a 2pdt switch and this one looks like it's gonna need more poles than that (i think). Any ideas?

Thanks for the link.

FWIW, while I'm quite happy with my HubBub (happy enough to have bought 2 of 'em), in years of use, I've never actually used the "switch from OBEL guitar to regular guitar" minitoggle even once (my rarely-needed backup guitar also has an OBEL).

ok so i worked around with the design from the previous thread to include the obel/mono switch. the goal is to have standard obel function, but then with the switch flicked, route the mono signal through the effects loop like a regular ol' guitar. would this work?

You actually don't need the dedicated mono input for a non obel guitar. If you loop is wired for the tip to send, you can just use the same cable and input, and use the switch to direct the output from the effects

How to put music on my ipod with a different computer withou

Postby SachikoSong » Tue Jul 24, 2012 12:48 am

I got an ipod a while ago and used it on my computer downstairs. Now I want to use my laptop to put music on it. But I don't want to delete all the music on my ipod. Is there a way i could put music on my ipod without deleting the rest of my music? (Without Software!!!) Oh, Itunes 9.

What if you added the guitar tuner switch for the output like the jerry version on Waldo's site?
Would you consider adding Waldo's buffer to the circuit?
I am thinking about trying this out so I can run all my guitars through the buffer and not just my OBEL strat. I would have to remove the buffer from the guitar. Any thoughts on the matter?

empress buffer+ later in the vid similar concept right?
