Has anyone got a coil from a mudbucker? The pickup that was in my eb2 had one coil missing when i got it and i would like to get it going.

Gibson Basses / Mudbucker taming
« on: December 15, 2016, 03:09:49 PM »
So once upon a time i had the 66 eb3 front pickup plus a thunderbucker in the back position of my eb4l .Both nice sounds but i could not get them to mix.I wired the bass with a stereo jack -when it gets to my ampeg preamp the mudbucker goes in the normal input but the rear pickup goes through a behringer mic 100 preamp(cheap valve/tube preamp) and then in to the bright input of the preamp.This stops the pickups loading each other .I like it a lot-im getting the bulldozer bass and the full sound of the rear pickup finally hurrah!

Gibson Basses / hipshot on eb4l
« on: April 16, 2011, 07:09:43 PM »
well i bought a hipshot supertone,the 3 point type, for my eb4l.i ilke it,more even sound between the strings,sounds like my bass only  better-all good EXCEPT with the saddles all screwed right down and the bridge right down on the body the action is still too high.darn.any suggestions?im thinking it might be off to the luthier to get the bridge recessed into the body about 5 mm and the post holes the same amount.yes i know i could try the 3 point again but i have 3 and i have never been satisfied with them.p.s. the eb4l is not in ,shall we say,collectable condition.

Gibson Basses / oops
« on: November 29, 2010, 01:03:58 AM »
well the other day i was sitting at this this very computer when i pushed my chair back -crash-my eb2 hit the floor.broken headstock.bad words may have been said.anyways, i got talking to the luthier that built my guitar and he has the eb2 at the moment and is repairing it.the headstock had been broken before and repaired roughly so it will be interesting to see how it goes.[/img]][url][/url]

Bill's Shop: Projects, Mods & Repairs / eb4l wiring
« on: March 18, 2010, 02:08:11 AM »
i guess this is a mod so i will try posting it here.heres the circuit i have ended up with in my eb4l.front pickup is a 1966 eb3 mudbucker,rear added pickup is 2 carvin blade single coils(one rwrp)together,standard humbucker size.the pot on the left pans the tops on the rear pickup between single coil and humbucking,the switch next to it i put in because the extemes of the 500k pot sounded great but it fell off slightly in the middle.interestingly it seems to make things slightly clearer by moderating some of the mid bass and shifting the resonant peak in the tops.the pickup blend pot does just that.the switch on the mudbucker turns the tops from that pickup to single coil.i didnt expect this to do too much but i can hear it.

Bass Amps & Effects / ampeg voicing
« on: March 03, 2010, 12:18:29 AM »
i have an ampeg svt2 preamp.i like it a lot but sometimes i wish it wasnt quite so focussed on the low mids.does anyone know if there is circuitry in there to do this or am i imagining it.

Bass Amps & Effects / does anyone here use 18 inch speakers
« on: August 27, 2009, 02:39:51 PM »
im using a biamed rig and i have a jbl e145 on the bottom end,nice sound only the  tone i want at the level i want makes the speaker want to get out of the box so i have been compressing the low end signal,not too last night i went and bought 2 used jbl mr818 cabs,a 300watt 18 inch in each.if i run them both at 4 ohms my amp makes 750 watts so i m thinking this may do the going to try them out on tuesday at rehearsal.i currently cross over to the top end amp -a marshall 9000 dual 50 watt valve amp at around 90 hz. this lets me drive the tops a little without farty distortion in the top cab.its a 4x 10 hartke at the moment though im beginning to suspect that a 2 x 12 may be better as well as easier to wondering if any of you use 18s and how it works for you.
