Automobiles were servicable up into the early 1970's. My 1974 BMW 2002 (currently "in mothballs") is very easy to service. Bri i can still work on mine quite easily. no EFI just a 2bbl carb ontop of a 307y motor. it has a computer but by that time most if not all GM cars had em but it's so rudiment...

Cars went teh same way. I sort of understood carbuerators, but computer controlled fuel injection? that's exactly why i own an 85 oldsmobile. it's thirsty but the money i save on repairs is pretty ridiculous. i'd like to go even older, late 40's early 50s, if ethanol gets any more popular as i'd fe...

I'll look into some kits. I always hear praise for the PAIA stuff. I think I bought this topic up after reading the thread about busted peavey. I've fixed a few amps with simple problems here or there but that made me realize how limited my scope is. Solid state is such a foreign concept to me. I've...

Philbo, Thanks for the link. I'll check it out. I agree that a lot of the stuff I find hard to digest. I've read some old radio texts and find I don't really understand something unless I've read it a number of times or the concept is put into a practical application. Inductance and reactance are go...

Really learning this stuff?

I know there have been plenty of "good electronics books for beginners?" threads but hear me out. Ever since my first tube amp blew, I've wanted to know the innards of these amps and how they work. Naturally, I dove in and started reading and tinkering. I want more though. I want to really understan...

Mark,
Thanks for the quick reply. What are you using as a controller? What benefits do you see in having a software sequencer? Would you recommend any of those boxes as a good all around synth to start with? I'll figure this all out sooner or later.

MIDI (uh oh)

I tried doing a search. 1456 results if I remember correctly. A bit overwhelming and I'm sure a lot of it was completely irrelevant to me. I'm at a point where I've been messing around more and more with sample based music. Right now I'm using an Akai MPC2000XL. I'm getting pretty competent with it....

guitar cab speaker buzzing..help!

Ok, I plugged into my prized possesion, my 1969 marshall basketweave 8x10 and when I hit a low note I can hear a buzz coming from one of the old 10 watters. I yanked the back off ASAP but all the cones seem to be intact. what else should I be looking for. god i'm worried. this thing cost more than m...

I got a Weller WES51 unit not too long ago. It's my first real unit and I've been happy with it so far.

IMHO, I couldn't imagine trying to build a device like the Sustainiac from scratch when it can be bought for about $200. I mean, it all depends on your values and all, and I'm a nutty DIY kinda guy myself, so I can understand that you might learn a whole lot by doing this, but in terms of your time...

E-Bow Questions (Uh-Oh!)

Well not E-Bows in particular, but that concept in general. I've had some frankensteining ideas. As I understand, and it makes sense, one transducer is used to pickup the signal then it is amplified (LM386 opamp in the one schematic I've found) and then the signal is put back into the string through...
