Speaking of batteries, this active bass guitar (Ibanez GSR200) has a power switch on the jack, so if you leave the plug in it runs the battery down. I suspect this may apply to many active electric string instruments. Of course it makes sense to remove the cable when you’re finished playing, but with the wireless dongles I at first thought of just using the power switches on the dongles.
I looked on eBay. The price really hits a sweet spot for me. I live very near the coast. It’s a 20 minute walk, close enough that you may have seen quite a few pictures and videos of Neve our greyhound gambolling in the sea on her daily walks. Not so far away there’s Marsden, a bird sanctuary thanks to tall limestone cliffs and numerous sea stacks (Wikipedia link). So there are many natural sounds that just cry out to be sampled.
If I designed a panel they can custom cut the LED, switch, knob and jack holes? What if they could inscribe the labels on the panel? Is that asking much? I haven’t gotten panels for my @TimMJN PCB sets which this seems a good option to fix this if given the above is true.
I’m not sure that they can engrave anything, but I know for sure that they can cut cad files! If you can make the file with the holes cut out, they can cut it. Although I’m not sure it’s super cost effective, which is why I opted to get blank panels and cut the holes myself. There was a price break at like 10 pieces
is this what you mean ?
this is a face panel made of frp I think it is called , basically circuit board material .
this is from JLCPCB , holes any way you want them . different colors to and the extra $ isn’t very much .
there are others all over the world if you have a preference , the shipping will cost as much as boards usually .
