add4 14125@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>So i guess i am (very) late to the party, but in case Kurt still has any interest in this here is something that i think could have interested him 8 years ago.</p> <p>I was planning my pedalboard, and when i wrote 'rat' in the list, i remembered that i usually never like the rat with my volume pot all the way up, and wondered if i could find a way to integrate the effect of having the pickups volume down in the pedal, that would be great.<br /> Then i remembered that it's a commonly done mod for the fuzz face in order to provide subtler shades of distortion.</p> <p>Quoting the excellent article of R.G. Keen: 'the technology of the fuzz face' (<a href="http://www.geofex.com/article_folders/fuzzface/fffram.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.geofex.com/article_folders/fuzzface/fffram.htm</a> )<br /> <blockquote>Another (Mod) is to connect a 50K pot, again as a series resistor, in series with the input of the circuit, before the 2.2uF input capacitor.</p> <p>If that last one seems a little odd, think back to what I said about the low input impedance. With a low input impedance, the input loads a guitar significantly; the base can only move a few tens of millivolts before cutting off or saturating the first transistor. If you put a resistor in series with the guitar pickup, it raises the apparent source impedance of the pickup, making it look more like a current source (albeit a tiny one) and less like a voltage source. A signal from a current source lets the input of the effect seek it's own voltage level, and merely supplies a varying current. This can be much more linear than a voltage source drive. As a result, the variable resistor allow you to radically clean up the distortion that the FF produces, producing subtle shades of softer distortion.</p> <p>In effect, the output mod is a "more" control, and the input mod is a "less" control. As you would expect, the two added controls can interact to produce many shades of distortion.<br /> </blockquote></p> <p>that mod is more simply explained at having another 'volume' pot as the one in the guitar, in front of the pedal.</p> <p>So a simple pot wired in series at the entrance of a pedal<br /> - lowers the input volume to the user's liking, allowing for better control on the distortion produced by the pedal<br /> - solves impedance problems linked to the pickup (if there is one, the input of the rat should theoretically be impervious to impedance problems)</p> <p>which is exactly what i'd like to have in front of the rat, while i keep my guitar's output pot where i want it.</p> <p>This remembered me kurt's question from 2007 on gearslutz: </p> <p><blockquote><br /> also a related question: my guitars outputs are too high and i dont like how they interact with my distortion box (rat). can i use some kind of d.i. box like an atty or radial jdv to sculpt how the guitar feeds the distortion box? </p> <p>...</p> <p>i also am playing a new guitar and i want to have some flexibility with how it affects the RAT pedal. i have a feeling that its not only a question of volume but also of impedance or ohms from the pickup. </p> <p>i think the solution might ultimately be different pickups, but for now i want a work around. i dont want to just lower the volume knob.<br /> </blockquote></p> <p>So in case it helps, i think it might be as easy as doing the mod i just mentioned. Of course i haven't tried it myself (yet) and i have about one thousand other pedal related stuff i want to do before that (babies makes you late in every personal project you had).<br /> But it think it would be worth trying and it could be as simple as using a simple pot, crocodile 'cables' and 2 jacks and put info in front of the rat, or have someone do the mod for you, or ask someone to build a rat with this mod.<br /> I know i'll try this when i'll build one for myself, with a few other mods to make the pedal more useable in a 'jazz' situation.</p> <p>Anyway i guess the question is completely out of scope now that Kurts rig is digital but in case it's still helpful, and/or for the sake of intellectual curiosity i thought i'd share.</p> <p>Peace<br /> Arnaud </p>

jorgemg1984 10975@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>This is sort of a stupid question but have you tried the booster on the Para-Q Kurt? I actually don't like high-output pickups but like hitting the amp's inout hard, So using low output pafs like the Bare Knuckles Stormy Monday and then boosting the signal with a clean boost (after ODs or distortions) has worked great so far. </p>

add4 10973@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Curious about this:<br /> Kurt, have you tried the bare knuckle pickups?<br /> i have put the emerald on my ES-335 neck, playing through an old mini-brute 1, and i get some very decent tones out of it. much more precise and open sounding than the stock classic 57 and the Seymour duncan 59 i tried before.<br /> I just bought an abraxas neck for the pleasure of trying new things, but bare knuckles really seem to have a very defined, precise and open sound.<br /> I also found than swapping the magnet of the humbucker is also an interesting way of changing a humbucker's sound. </p>

Bluewaterpig 10964@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I've heard from a few different sources that Kurt now uses a Seymour Duncan '59 pickup in his neck. I'm looking to buy the same pickup but now I'm finding there's a THB 59, an SH 59, blah blah blah, etc. I cant seem to find just a regular 59 pickup so im guessing the model he uses has a slightly different name. Can anyone direct me to the pickup I'm looking for? I just want the same Seymour Duncan 59 neck pickup...thanks. </p>

Benny 7521@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>It appears that modifying the Freeze to a silent switch is a fairly straightforward modification. Lots of info on the web.</p> <p>The new EHX Superego looks to be a Freeze on steroids. May be worth a look.</p> <p>Quick question for Kurt. I saw from a recent link on here that you've been using the GigRig Quartermaster loop strip. Is that silent switching? If not, I'm curious why you went with that over the Lehle units.</p> <p>Regards,<br /> Benny </p>

LeonardoB 7518@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Yeah, Kurt is right: there's this CLICK that's really annoying on the freeze, I was trying to think of some way to modify it so that you could get rid of that click and perhaps "hack" the circuit so that you could link an exp pedal as the HOG allows, but nothing worked so far.</p> <p>I noticed Gilad Hekselman has sort of wrapped the whole Freeze pedal with some kind of tape that, I guess, reduces the noise; I do not know to which degree it works, though.</p> <p>Plus, the Freeze has no Gliss Mode; it would be unfair for me to buy the whole HOG just for those 2 functions, they should make a Freeze with a switch like the one Lehle uses (much more silent) or perhaps with an exp pedal. One day, maybe.. </p>

mretfasterer 7503@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>The way that I know to use the expression pedal in the bliss/hold function is to..<br /> 1 - Hit a note, heel down. The note speaks.<br /> 2- move expression pedal to toe down, the note freezes. No other note can be heard, I could disconnect the guitar and the frozen note still sounds.****NOTE, @ END***<br /> 3-Play the note I want to go to next.<br /> 4-QUICKLY move expression to heel down, and BACK to toe down. The new note speaks, the old note disappears, flawless transition between notes, and the second note is already re-frozen! Boom. Attack-less chord transitions. </p> <p>***NOTE - With one of the knobs turned up on the pedal, other notes CAN or CAN NOT be heard over the frozen note. There is a knob called "dry output". This knob changes the function, weather or not a new note, or two, or two thousand, can be hard OVER the frozen note.<br /> Good stuff!<br /> Mr. Rosenwinkel used this AMAZINGLY on a few tunes with the "Time Machine" when I saw them. The guitar sounded like an organ! AND he could play solo's over HIS OWN background chords. </p>

Entasis 7501@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I second that this is a great album!</p> <p>As for your question, yes it's still the HOG... from the manual:</p> <p><blockquote>FREEZE + GLISS — The Freeze + Gliss function is a new expression mode that works a little differently from the other modes. When the toe is up, you can play your instrument normally. When the toe is down, the HOG will freeze whatever notes you were playing at the<br /> time of pushing the Expression pedal down. You can then play over these notes. In between toe up and toe down, the HOG will slide to the new note you play, from the previous note you played. The speed of the glissando is determined by the position of the Expression pedal, the closer the Expression pedal is to toe down, the slower the slide speed will be. For example, if you play an A note and then move the Expression Pedal down to 50%, it will freeze the A note. If you then play an E note, the HOG will slide up to the E note. This function is similar to portamento on a synthesizer. Freeze + Gliss is a very tricky mode, it takes some time to master it. It can be frustrating at first but once you get it, it will open new doors to how you play guitar.<br /> Please note: Moving the Expression Pedal to the toe up position erases the frozen note in memory.</blockquote></p> <p><a href="http://www.ehx.com/products/hog" rel="nofollow">http://www.ehx.com/products/hog</a> </p>

LeonardoB 7493@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Just bought this cool recording of Joel Frahm's quartet live at Small's from February, 28th and March, 1st 2011 with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Joe Martin and Otis Brown III.<br /> There's this tune by Frahm called "What's Your Beat?", track n.3 , a kinda funky piece with lots of bass pedals and not very much harmonic movement almost throughout the whole tune.<br /> After Frahm's solo, Kurt digs in a series of sustained chords, probably using the Freeze function on his Hog controlled via exp pedal, but somewhat manages to change their pitch whilst they're held by the pedal. I've heard very closely and it doesn't seem like he's playing many chords, but just one and after freezing it he modulates its pitch (things made possible by Joe Martin holding a pedal on bass, allowing Kurt to somewhat be harmonically creative)..I've thought of some of those pitch benders which have a volume-like pedal, but still sounds very strange to me.</p> <p>Did anyone hear it and figure out what's happening there under Kurt's feet/hands ?</p> <p>PS For those who don't have it, I recommend buying it, definitely worth the money (you can purchase it directly from Small's website).</p> <p>Regards,<br /> LeonardoB </p>
