DIY Midi Guitar demo      AX50
 
02:05
This guitar used to be a standard Variax 500. I transplanted the original Variax electronics into another guitar & then converted what remained into a midi/piezo/ standard electric guitar. This is just a short video of me messing about triggering some synth samples using the midi aspect of the guitar. The guitar bridge is the standard Line 6hex piezo type (made by LR Baggs). It tracks *extremely* well (better than my factory built Ibanez midi guitar!) CHECK OUT MY OTHER VIDEOS TO WATCH ME DEMO'ING A HOMEMADE/DIY GUITAR 'INFINITE SUSTAINING DEVICE'!!.

DIY guitar Sustainer KEEPING the guitar's original pickups
 
01:14
This self designed circuit and driver nothing like the standard DIY/homemade sustainer i.e. an 8 Ohms driver wound with 0.2mm wire & paired with a fetzer ruby - such DIY sustainers suck (top E & top B won't sustain at the open end of the fretboard). This video is just to show it can be done & inspire those who may be setting off on their own DIY sustainer journey that it can be done. Note: There is no circuit/schematic to share here (as I may end up selling these - & if I share, then I'll have nothing to sell...as inevitably someone else will rip off my work!)

LED mock Guitar Pickup sound to light
 
01:36
Buy here .. www.guitarleds.com I make these myself... they're not available to buy anywhere else. btw if you've a specific circuit/requirement in mind (or say other led colours), I can probably accommodate. Do drop me a line. Ok, now a little more about this cool device.... There are seven different LED pattern options to choose from 1. Sound to light (twinkler) 2. Bargraph/VU Meter (Sound to light again) 3. Knight Rider Pattern. 4. Random (Starry). 5. Scanner. 6. Auto fade down/Up. 7 All LEDS permanently on (useful for lighting up you immediate vicinty on a dark stage) Very simple install,...just two battery wires to connect (and if you want sound to light ...just connect the incorporated shielded wire to your guitar's output jack - job done). All the switching is built into the device (so no drilling of your guitar necessary)

Self designed DIY guitar Sustainer coil (with twinkler LEDs!)
 
01:01
PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT SELLING THESE, NOR DO I HAVE ANY IMMEDIATE PLANS TO DO SO. If you like the LED effect, you can buy a dummy LED pickup I make ....more details here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf4Qk5MP9xs ) I make sustainer coils in my spare time...this was one for my own Ibanez & the cool thing about it (apart from the LEDs)is that with my design, you get to keep the guitar's original pickups (as opposed to Fernandes & Sustainiac, who all force you to swap out your original neck pickup for theirs - not acceptable in my books!) Note: There is no circuit/schematic to share here & this self designed circuit *AND& Driver combo is unlike anything 'DIY' you may hear about on the net - in fact I wish to distance myself from any perceived similarities by those who SHOUT a lot on forums (& 'claim' everything as theirs!), specifically... My driver coil does *not* use 0.2mm wire (fwiw: most enamelled wire CAN be made to work within reason...the one in this video uses thicker wire at something like 0.25mm from recollection) my driver coil is not 8 ohms (it doesn't have to be...but it does need to match your circuit's paramaters)) my circuit design does not use an LM386 (that's an awful IC!) The driver coil does not *have* to not potted - laziness on my part established this oft quoted misnomer! Granted, you may squeeze a little more performance out of your driver with it potted, but potting is not gonna make a poor driver sustain well. This implementation has zero pops or clicks at switch on/off (the DIY offerings on the net will shock you with the pops & bangs at switch on/off!) I use an AGC....but most (not all) DIY sustainer offerings omit that I make no use of JFETs (eg like a fetzer ruby) the driver in the video is about 4mm tall (*not* 3mm)....actually from my own testing I established that driver height makes very little perceivable difference to the sustainer performance, the reason I use one 4mm high, is becuase my guitar has about 5mm of 'string to body' clearance, and a 4mm tall driver fits in that space nicely! There's nothing magical about the low height/profile of the driver ....I've made driver coils 12mm tall ...they all work just as well. (it's the circuit you mate your own design of driver with that counts)

Buy here - www.guitarleds.com The circuit is on a very slim PCB which physically fits underneath the rear humbucker - so no extra space needed for a circuit board!

DIY Guitar Sustainer 'OPEN E' test (thinnest string) - strong sustain.
 
01:36
Chances are if you're watching this video, it's because you've built a DIY sustainer with a fetzer ruby circuit & connected it up to an 8 ohm sustainer driver (wound with 0.2mm dia. wire!) & you're wondering why you've got poor/zero sustain on the thinnest strings - unfortunately, that's because the overall design of that particulat DIY sustainer is seriously flawed (& the guy who touts would much rather bask in the misplaced adoration heaped on him by those who think they're gonna get a good sustainer for $5).So, a slight variation of a well known proverb - "the one eyed man *appears* to be King in the valley of the blind"!!. I've posted this video purely towards motivating 'electronics savvy' DIY'ers (& proving it can be done). In the video what you see is self designed sustainer that *strongly* sustains a .009" gauge top OPEN E string (where the string to driver distance is at its max, somewhere in the region of about 6mm - quite a distance for a sustainer). Before you waste a lot of time making a DIY sustainer, ask for confirmation from others (who have built the same one), that it actually sustains the thin strings ....cos a 4 string sustainer isn't much use to anyone. Please don't ask for a circuit/schematic or spec...becuase I won't release - there are many out there, that will simply rip off what I've done (I've been dabbling for about 3 years on this) or will claim that they came up with my design (& frankly I doubt many will get close)...but also, because I'll likely eventually get around to selling...therefore if I release my work, then I'll have nothing to sell!

Self designed DIY Sustainer - harmonic mode
 
00:36
PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT SELLING THESE, NOR DO I HAVE ANY IMMEDIATE PLANS TO DO SO. No amp...just straight into my PC's soundard - playing a DIY sustainer in 'harmonic' mode (mainly played on the 'B' string....which typically wrt sustainers, is quite hard to get sustaining even in fundamental mode) Note: There is no circuit/schematic to share here & this self designed circuit *AND& Driver combo is unlike anything 'DIY' you may hear about on the net - in fact I wish to distance myself from any perceived similarities by those who SHOUT a lot on forums (& 'claim' everything as theirs!), specifically... My driver coil does *not* use 0.2mm wire (fwiw: 0.2mm isn't essential, most enamelled copper wire CAN be made to work within reason...the one in this video uses thicker wire at something like 0.25mm from recollection) my driver coil is not 8 ohms (it doesn't have to be...but it *does* need to match your circuit's parameters) my circuit design does not use an LM386 (that's an awful IC!) The driver coil does not *have* to not potted - laziness on my part established this oft quoted misnomer! However, you ou may squeeze a little more performance out of your driver coil with it potted, but potting is not gonna make a poor driver sustain well. This implementation has zero pops or clicks at switch on/off (the DIY offerings on the net will shock you with the pops & bangs at switch on/off!) I use an AGC....but most (not all) DIY sustainer offerings omit that - a DIY sustainer without AGC & gloor threshold is gonna suck batteries big time. I make no use of JFETs (eg like a fetzer ruby) the driver in the video is about 4mm tall (*not* 3mm)....actually from my own testing I established that driver height makes very little perceivable difference to the sustainer performance, the reason I use one that is 4mm high, is becuase my guitar has about 5mm of 'string to body' clearance, and a 4mm tall driver fits in that space nicely! Don't believe the BS about a DIY sustainer coil *must* be 3mm. ....I've made driver coils 12mm tall ...they all work just as well. (it's the circuit you mate your own design of driver with that counts)

Rough 'n ready self designed diy guitar sustainer...
 
00:34
PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT SELLING THESE, NOR DO I HAVE ANY IMMEDIATE PLANS TO DO SO. Self designed - this first part just illustrates how strong the sustain is that plucking isn't required! The second part is just me random 'tapping' harmonics (a sustainer will normally try & gravitate back to whatever mode it is in - eg with normal sustainers .... if in fundamental, the tap won't last becuase the fundamental will shoot right back, in harmonic mode the wanted 'tapped' harmonic wil be swamped by the dominant harmonic in that mode, but with this design a player can tap out manual harmonics as required & they'll hang right on in there!). Note: There is no circuit/schematic to share here & this self designed circuit *AND& Driver combo is unlike anything 'DIY' you may hear about on the net - in fact I wish to distance myself from any perceived similarities by those who SHOUT a lot on forums (& 'claim' everything as theirs!), Please note....

The driver coil does not *have* to not potted - laziness on my part established this oft quoted misnomer! Granted, you may squeeze a little more performance out of your driver with it potted, but potting is not gonna make a driver that's giving poor results suddenly sustain well.
