2 pickups 2 volume pots

I recently finished a 3 stringer with 2 pickups controlled by 2 volume pots,instead of a 3 way switch.Thanks to David L.for telling me about this idea (Stracciatella Mod). I used the coils from 2 Gitty Gold Foil pickups.Diodes are soldered between each pot and the jack. Instead of soldering my grounds to the back of the pots, I flattened a piece "tin" from a can and mounted the pots thru the metal and tied all the grounds together with a bolt. It made a nice clean connection

Thanks for a link to your page, and the comments Jeff. Your coffee can resonators are just the push I needed for my next step.

Hey Jeff.  I will take some sound bites on Tuesday when I get back into the classroom.  We have Zoom mics that are will render the sound better than my iphone.  I have to say that my 4-stringer, an Ashton Churchill box, has a nice rich and warm sound that is pretty decent in volume.  The no. 6 boxes are very quiet. I have built three CBGs using those boxes and put piezo pickups into all of those.  

BTW your diddley bow looks way cool.

Cheers.
