Rewinding a Stingray Pickup.

Post by bassbass » 28 Jun 2018, 11:40

Hi guys. Here's the new video for my fledgling YT channel. In this I tear apart and rewind a cheap Stingray pickup. I also created a track with sounds entirely made by the finished pickup.

I hope you enjoy. I also hope to inspire some of you to have a go at this stuff as well...

Well I just finished watching the whole video. Great job Rob. I've never seen so much useful content packed into 16 minutes.

I love the way you put the whole video together. Thanks for taking the time to make and post this. It's not an easy thing to put together and takes a lot more time than most people think :thumbup:

Thanks guys. Got more in the pipeline. Trying to focus on DIY approaches with simple hand tools. It's a great time to get cheap basses and just have a go. The videos are time consuming, but I like to edit them, because so much how-to stuff on YT is well-intentioned, but pretty waffly and not edited at all really. I try to light and shoot them better each time too. Just upgraded to a better phone this week, so the footage quality should improve...

takes a lot more time than most people think
Ha. Yeah that's for sure. But the more you do it, the more you streamline the process. But yeah, I saw an interview with the mighty car mods guys, and they spend far more time (10 times more!) editing than they do actually working on their project cars.

I loved this...

Great instructional video, and the end result is great.

The pickup sounds very much like a classic stingray... (too close to discern a difference)...
It reminds me of that Louis Johnson tone...

I like how you spent a bit of time explaining the shielding and earthing. That in itself is a bit of science that many pickup builders (even commercial builders) don't understand properly.
