Hi Sheldon, Some questions came up on the Basses thread and I thought I would start a thread here on the above subject. Will "all" future active Dingwalls have a Glockenklang preamp? What instrument ship date do they start with? Will my new Z3 have the 3-band? Will there be a price increase on existing orders? Will there be a retrofit if one can't live without one?

Hi David, [quote="dsincjr":2h9f5wst]Will "all" future active Dingwalls have a Glockenklang preamp?[/quote:2h9f5wst] Yes [quote="dsincjr":2h9f5wst]What instrument ship date do they start with?Will my new Z3 have the 3-band?[/quote:2h9f5wst] The start date varies by model, but all current and future production will have Glocks until we decide differently. [quote="dsincjr":2h9f5wst]Will there be a price increase on existing orders?[/quote:2h9f5wst] No. [quote="dsincjr":2h9f5wst]Will there be a retrofit if one can't live without one?[/quote:2h9f5wst] No, once a body is drilled for Aguilar pots, the holes are too large for the Glock pots. The pots are not interchangeable. The Aguilar is a great pre-amp. There is no need to gut the electronics to switch.

Will the rubber control knobs still be the same? I really like the design, and would like them on my forthcoming Zee(along with the Glock of course).. :)

I'm pretty sure that the knobs have stayed the same.

The Glocks require all set-screw style knobs. The knobs will look the same, but they mount differently.

Hi Sheldon, Could you explain a little bit about the differences between the Aguilar and Glock preamps, as far as tone is concerned? Thanks.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":35lxzkpg]Now that you mention it, yes, the holes are going to be too large for the Glock pots.[/quote:35lxzkpg] Won't I be able to use washers to install a glock preamp on my 10-year old prima with larger holes? Would you recommend against it for some reason? Also, do you remember the diameter of the bartolini pots? I talked to Udo from glockenklang about the problem and he asked me this, but even if I take apart the preamp I won't know what exactly he wants me to measure.

Hi Dragonlord. I am am not Sheldon (as you probably know :wink:) but, in order to use the smaller diameter pots in the larger holes, you need to use 2 washers per pot (on in the cavity and one on the outside, and that reduces the available threaded lenght needed for the stability of the pot, plus it needs overtightening IMHO

This is what Udo just asked me, but I can't answer, could you please give me that info Sheldon? [quote:yvppbclf]how thick is the surface, where you mount the pots and which diameter do your actual pots have? I have washers which are 2mm thick and the outer diameter is 10mm, so you can center them in the bigger hole.[/quote:yvppbclf]

Sheldon, once you get some rest from NAMM and if you have some time and that info handy, please please answer these questions in my last two posts, as I'm talking with Udo and he's waiting for my reply to see if I can place an order. To sum the questions up: 1) Won't I be able to use washers to install a glock preamp on my 10-year old prima with larger holes? Would you recommend against it for some reason? 2) Do you remember the diameter of the bartolini pots? 3) How thick is the surface, where you mount the pots and which diameter do your actual pots have? I have washers which are 2mm thick and the outer diameter is 10mm, so you can center them in the bigger hole. (Udo's question to me, I'm passing it along to you) Thank you very very much.

Washers hold OK for a while, but when they loosen, then the problems start. [quote="Dragonlord":1hr9uamk] 2) Do you remember the diameter of the bartolini pots?[/quote:1hr9uamk] 9 mm. [quote="Dragonlord":1hr9uamk] 3) How thick is the surface, where you mount the pots and which diameter do your actual pots have?[/quote:1hr9uamk] 3.75 mm +/- some sanding and finishing differences. You may be in luck. I have 5 custom nuts left in stock that we made for such a purpose. Keep in mind, nuts made by the thousands cost pennies each. Custom nuts made in small batches are expensive. I'll have to calculate a cost on them, but they are likely $20 each. They thread onto a Glock sized pot, fit the hole for the Bartolini properly and prevent the pot from tipping.

You're the man Sheld, thanks a lot. Let me take the new info to Udo and give me a few days to see whether I'll buy those. How many will I need? I guess I'll need four for the glock's volume, bass, mid and treble, but I have also already ordered a 4-way rotary selector from you, will I need one for that as well?

Sheldon, thanks a lot again. For the time being I want be needing the nuts, Udo thinks he's got a solution. If it doesn't work, I'll shoot Dingwall Sales an email to see if they're still available. Cheers!
