wah inductor bobin help
« on: March 19, 2015, 01:59:50 PM »
well i have access to an inductance meter so i would like to bobin my own inductor, i have a cry baby board and maybe(if i find it) a broken black inductor, so the core will be useful, but maybe you can tell me about wire gauge and inductance to achive for a some good wah wah and not the standard CB also maybe i will try to use a Weener Wah II board instead of the CB

Small Bear sells an inductor kit, says to use #38 wire.

If my photos are missing again... they're hosted by photobucket... and as of 06/2017 being held hostage... to be continued?

Always a good read at RG's site too :)


<ahhh i had read something of this on the site (geofex) but never the part of the bobin yourself, so a second bobbin will do the job i think this has to be a little one, i will buy 2 kits from small bear to try out
