1 jonnydoghouse 3 months ago Hi guys I've set my New Yorker up with a TV Classic in the neck and a Dearmond 2000 in the bridge. Because I put the TV classic in first and lived with it a while, and because the position of the TV is quite far north compared to standard pickup layout of say a 6120 or the like (it's in the same relative position as the Rhythm Chief type pup I took off) theres a gulf of tonal difference between the 2. The 2000 is really trebbly and the classic really bassy. In the middle position, the classic tone overrides the dearmond, I was hoping for more of a balance. I've used 500k pots and both the pickups are wired to a single vol and tone. I'm guessing there's not much I can do to balance them a bit more as the pole pieces are as low as I can get them in the classic. Anybody had any experience using a blend pot? Just feels like I want to adjust the amp tone for the bridge pickup. I guess this is why you would use 2 volume pots but i really don't want to go down that route as i find it difficult enough whilst playing to change the volume! The actual tone of both pickups is great. I've heard that tapping the classic isn't an option because of the output being so low. Any thoughts? Thanks!
