First, woah! I am sooo out of my league. (But won’t give up!) Most of what you said went way over my head.
And as learning fritzing is not really what I want to do, I’ll try saying it in pictures (see below).
The process was two fold:
first I built a 4 pot and 3 switch (guitar) controller which was easy (sort of :-)). Using the parts below
3 - SPST Mini Toggle Switch (contacts rated)
4 - Audio Control Potentiometer with SPST Switch (10k Ohm)
4 - Molded Hexagon Knob
then I cannibalized a guitar and added
1 - 5-way Switch
1 - Volume Knob and its pot
2 - Tone Knobs and their pots
So I was going to add a
SPDT Mini Toggle Switch - 1
To switch between the original four knobs and the 3 new knobs.
But including the tremolo pot, 5 of my 6 analog slots are in use.
Stumped, right? unless I toggle between the two sets using the toggle switch?
I included the pics to give you some idea of what I have and where I would like (:-)) to head with this.
Thank you, sooo much for your help.
Tho not “married” to this project (i tried that, didn’t like it). I am Severely addicted to it.
Peace. Look forward to learning as much as I can from you.
Thank, again, for your help.
p.s. to me an even MUCH more complex issue I am (mentally having) is what signals do I pass in lieu of pickups?
I “merged”(?) the three outs coming off the volume pot into one: so I now have 1 red, 1 black, and 1 white wire.
And I think I would send the red to 5v and the black to grnd. But in the world do I do with the white? (oh, I have it attached to a classical guitar with piezo pickup (which has a 1/8 stereo out on it).
