Title: Scalarizer Thread
Post by: micsis on January 24, 2007, 09:31:10 PM
Hi guys ,may i start this thread wherein we can post reviews / comments / testimonies specifically on the scalarizer. Many guitarist forumites still dont know what this miracle device is all about. Thanks!

Or can the the author of the previous thread edit or rename the title para madali hanapin. Thanks again!

Quote from mahavishnu:

To be honest I was a skeptic. we did the usual A/B thing. either my ears were patethically tired or mike's strat was just too good to sound better. still a skeptic. twas psychological...tried it on the LP. same.

Then we did a B/A...holy shiznizzle. played the darn ax with the scalarizer, played only two chords with 3 open strings. tried our best to remember the tone...removed the scalarizer immediately. played the same two chords. i just cant believe it but what we're hearing slapped some sense to me. i just lost the creaminess and warmth..i lost the smooth edges.. the harshness came back.. and the sound was bland or dry.. and the resonance is like some old fart , very plain and short.

what the scalarizer did was it smooth the edges and harshness.. you prolly say youll sacrifice some highs or some elements with the smoothening out. NO. the whole stage is there.. the dynamic is still wide, wider i should say. mike said it himself "3D". oh and never forget about the resonance.. sustain for days! the scalarizer gives more wood to your tone. i think  it allows your guitar's wood(not the one inside your pants) a bigger role in the tone. what should have always been.

BAMF is henyo (tama ba spelling?) i hope you get rich with this. thanks sir. you inspire as to kalikot stuff. with dedication to R&D ofcourse

LCR filters narrow down bandwidth.

The scalarizer widens the available bandwidth :D

But beyond that, it's better to hear it before and after installation. I'll gladly lend you one, Al. I'll drop it off your office next time I'm in the area.

Or better still, you can drop by at the shop this Saturday night. Bring a guitar, your [gooey brown stuff] one. :D

It makes your pickups and overall, your electric guitar sound better. Without having to change pickups or even resort to expensive and often frivolous stuff like titanium trem blocks and stuff like that.

All the guitars you played with at the shop kanina were all scalarized. :D . But as mahavishnu and micsis points out, you'll appreciate it after comparing it to the same guitar before and after installation (or rather after and after removal in their case hehehe :D )

BAMF,

Titanium trem blocks and saddles have a different expansion effect than electronic means.  They are not the same.  Unless you have installed Titanium parts on your guitar extensively for a long time, dont pretend you know the difference.  You want to know how both sound together?  Take a shot at my Strat or my Super Strat into a Diezel Herbert for a truly expansive sound.

Welcome back Alex, how's your vacation?

BAMF and I would definitely, absolutely, love to hear true expansiveness, as your strats and herbert can afford.

I gather from your response that you are cashing in on BAMF's long standing offer, mon ami?

Great! When's your stuff available? And where?

Kahit your house na lang. It's easier to lug a Scalarized Greco Strat than it is to lug a Herbert.

Or Arie's, or Lito's, or at Anton's. Or the next Purple Haze EB. Ikaw ! :D

But here's the thing.

1. You can hear the difference even on any amp. No need to strain to listen for differences. No need to play it through a Herbie.
2. You can hear the difference immediately (no need for extensive testing and owning of the thing)
3. [gooey brown stuff] guitars become good guitars, good guitars become great guitars
4. Its Cost-to-tone ratio will smoke your tremblock. ANY DAY.

And well...before you comment on the expansiveness of the scalarizer, which I'm sure you have not yet heard nor have any idea what it's about, don't pretend to know the difference either  between it and your titanium trem block. Like I said, this is a first, and has never before been invented for electric guitar. Proudly Philippine conceptualized, invented and made. Made affordable so every Filipino musician can afford that million dollar guitar sound.

Anton's Greco strat will eat your titanium tremblock guitar. On any amp. On any day. Well...except the day when your guitar becomes scalarized as well.

Wag na nating patagalin. Anton's place, 7 pm this Saturday. We'll invite philmusic friends over.

To give u an idea, it costs less than 2 new set of d'addario strings and equal to 2 sets of rotosound strings. And strings you throw away after 1 month of playing, but the scalarizer stays with your instrument for life.

I don't have any on me here at home. They're all in the BAMFx shop in Banawe.

Take the time. Bring a guitar you'd like to be scalarized and we'll compare it before and after. If it's an ibby RG or LP, we can even put a bypass switch to hear the with and without effects.

I accept visitors up to 9 pm.

believe me bro, your switch will be useless once you have a scalarizer installed, coz you'll never switch it off!!!

As micsis found, I guess the best way to audition it it is an AFTER then BEFORE test.

Yes. I installed a metal-core scalarizer last night on a beat-up FGM Ibby. It had a Tom Morello style mute switch, which the owner had me convert to a scalarizer bypass switch. Yep. Dinig na dinig how the graininess and harshness of that guitar disappears and how the 3D effect brought by the inserted harmonics makes the sound come to life.

Shhh !!! You know who might trip on the secret and start pouring virgin goat's blood on his titanium trem-block superstrats (mwahahaha).

Seriously, I'm almost out. Grabe. I'll have more made today.

And when the Singapore and Korea distribution deals kick in...gosh...I guess I'll be hiring more technicians soon !

Speaking of which, Anton and I just finished assembling and testing a new device...the Angelizer. It's a scalarizer but with XLR ins and outs...for microphones !!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA !!! (Thunder and Lightning all around). Results ? Wait na lang Bos Jaime for our next jam, we'll demo it to ya ! :D :D :D

Been playing my guitars a lot more!  :-D Anyone familiar with the feeling of playing along with your favorite songs and thinking that your guitar sounds really bad and not at par with the recorded track? I don't miss that feeling.  :-) Can't wait to start playing gigs with these. I'll have my chance at freedom on the 3rd and conspiracy on the 10th. Shameless plug. Wehehehe.

Yet again, amazed but not surprised. :wink:

Uy, sama naman ako sa toneparty nyo! I've never been to one.  :cry: But i'd like to make a request if i may. Can we leave our egos at the door and just have fun? Kita-kita lang as comrades and friends trying out gear and playing around sharing a common interest. I'm not comfortable equating guitar-playing with negative vibes.

XLRs??? Pasubok!!! Dalan mo ako mamaya? May session ako sa studio, fafa!

Post by: oasgomez-is-banned on January 25, 2007, 11:44:49 AM
As I said before, nothing can do what a titanium block can do.  Electronic enhancements are not the same.  The titanium block with titanium saddles expands the vibrational qualities of the guitar and makes 10 gauges feel like 9s in ease of playing but at the same time retaining the volume and tone of 10s.  

By the way, you started the comparison.  Ang mali sa iyo, you compared actual physical hardware versus something you stick to the electronics of a guitar.  I do not discount that the scalarizer can affect/improve the sound of the guitar but it will not improve it like the way titanium does.  I am not saying one type is better than the other but rather both affect the guitar sound differently.  So you cannot compare.

1. Before you claim expansiveness, let me define it.  You need a guitar with good sounding wood that vibrates and you need an amp with the ability to project sound in a 3d soundstage.  Now your mod can make things sound clearer and better but I doubt that it is expansive.

2. Even a paper in oil capacitor upgrade in the tone circuit which you maligned ages ago can be immediately heard on any amp.  

3. A [gooey brown stuff] guitar will remain [gooey brown stuff] in terms of character.  In short, a dead sounding guitar will not sound alive with your mod.  

4. There is no cost to ratio comparison because titanium parts affect the sound differently than any modification on the electronic circuit.  

Are you really sure about Anton's strat about smokin my Strat?   Do you have an idea what my Strat has smoked?  Do you know who has used my strat to record? Do you know about all the modifications that have gone thru my Strat which still perfectly looks like a 54 Strat?  

I have nothing against your scalarizer.  A year ago you kept on berating Paper in Oil Capacitors now you are promoting this one of a kind thingy.  You have no idea at all how a million peso rig will sound like so stop claiming that your small thingy does just that becase even if I am just half way there, I will tell you that it aint just a scalarizer.

Okeyyy Hardogai !!!

Before you shoot your fingers off, first off, it's not "electronic". You'll be closer to "electromagnetic". But still, not yet. How about "psycho-acoustic"? And no, I won't tell you. I want you calling Arie and Lito and all the other frikkin experts you know asking them if they've heard of anything called a "scalarizer".

And while it does appear that nothing anyone can say will convince you as you're still trying to validate your expensive lumps of metal (albeit and amidst  terrible reviews on foreign forums), there will be no substitute for an in-person shootout.  And you don't have any idea either of what Anton's Greco smoked. Two very expensive, very well endowed American Stratocasters. Sorry for the short track record, after all the scalarizer has been invented only very recently. Save your theories. Let the ears decide. [gooey brown stuff] guitars will remain [gooey brown stuff] pala ha. I think I have to acquaint you with my RJ PRS with P350 "JB" humbucking pickups. BAMF-potted AND Scalarized. Baka lumuha ang Bareknuckles mong gitara sa kanya.

So gather what balls you got and show up on Saturday. Don't worry, we'll all be civil. C'mon ! If you think you can't lose, then you have nothing to lose ! Yes, I'm serious. Saturday, 7 pm, 158 Sto. Domingo corner Calamba st., Quezon City. It's quite close to Arie's place so you won't have a problem getting there. Parking is safe and free. Beer and pulutan is on me. YOu don't show up and you'll be marked [gooey brown stuff] for life.

But seriously, I'd gladly throttle back to my non-confrontational mode Alex, if I only had any assurance that you're not just jerking people off in this forum. But in fairness, I have to thank you. If not for your being such an oass, I would not have kicked my butt trying to perfect this device. It was specifically made to smoke all your guitars.

At any rate though, there will be more and more people with great sounding guitars. I don't have to make it my life's mission to smoke your stuff. You did have a role to play in the process though. Just like Gollum in Return of the King.


As I said before, nothing can do what a titanium block can do.  Electronic enhancements are not the same.  The titanium block with titanium saddles expands the vibrational qualities of the guitar and makes 10 gauges feel like 9s in ease of playing but at the same time retaining the volume and tone of 10s. 

By the way, you started the comparison.  Ang mali sa iyo, you compared actual physical hardware versus something you stick to the electronics of a guitar.  I do not discount that the scalarizer can affect/improve the sound of the guitar but it will not improve it like the way titanium does.  I am not saying one type is better than the other but rather both affect the guitar sound differently.  So you cannot compare.

1. Before you claim expansiveness, let me define it.  You need a guitar with good sounding wood that vibrates and you need an amp with the ability to project sound in a 3d soundstage.  Now your mod can make things sound clearer and better but I doubt that it is expansive.

2. Even a paper in oil capacitor upgrade in the tone circuit which you maligned ages ago can be immediately heard on any amp. 

3. A [gooey brown stuff] guitar will remain [gooey brown stuff] in terms of character.  In short, a dead sounding guitar will not sound alive with your mod. 

4. There is no cost to ratio comparison because titanium parts affect the sound differently than any modification on the electronic circuit. 

Are you really sure about Anton's strat about smokin my Strat?   Do you have an idea what my Strat has smoked?  Do you know who has used my strat to record? Do you know about all the modifications that have gone thru my Strat which still perfectly looks like a 54 Strat?   

I have nothing against your scalarizer.  A year ago you kept on berating Paper in Oil Capacitors now you are promoting this one of a kind thingy.  You have no idea at all how a million peso rig will sound like so stop claiming that your small thingy does just that becase even if I am just half way there, I will tell you that it aint just a scalarizer.

yeah, maganda naman yung nagagawang effect nung "scalarizer" eh. pero no offense, BAMF...

palitan mo naman yung pangalan oh, hehe. it sounds like a device found in 80's sci-fi movies eh, hehe. plus medyo mahirap bigkasin, hehe. baka pwede mong pangalanan in the lines of the sonic stomp or sonic maximizer. maybe we can call it a "sonic expander" since it expands the sonic characteristics of guitars... in short, we can name it...

@BAMF, a few honest questions:

1) How do you thing ageing would impact the performance of your device?
2) Any plans of patenting it?
3) Would a post-signal chain device using a different configuration of the same component be viable? I'm interested in its potential as a post-modeller device.
4) If putting it in the guitar ("in contact with the wood") has any effect on the tone, as you suggested in the other thread, wouldn't that mean that its performance in an XLR box is compromised?

edgeofillusion-jepoy,

si BAMF nga ang nasimula ng comparison sa titanium na hindi pa niya naririnig.  kayo nga ang tira ng tira.  Nananahimik lang ako.

Ikaw ang spoiler...

Akala ko ba ayaw niyo ng titanium dahil kanya kanya ang tunog?  Ngayon na may so-called cheap alternative to titanium, suddenly ok na.  Labo talaga.  So talagang habol niyo is affordability and not tone.

Just to reitterate why the two are incomparable,  ang titanium block at saddle dinadaanan ng string ng gitara mo.  The part vibrates with the string.  Also, hindi ito kinakalawang kaya ok siyang replacement for your steel blocks and saddles.  Also, mas maganda ang itsura at luster.  Whats more, its resists the sweat from you palm when you lay it across the bridge.  Si scalarizer, nakatago lang sa likod ng backplate or control plate.

That being said, I am not saying that the scalarizer will not improve tone nor I am saying now that it is worthwhile improvement.  As you said try... and I say try both.

affordability bec not a single average earned person could afford your titanium blocks.
scalaizer makes a lot of difference once na kinabit mo na., not unlike your titanium na kelangan mo pa ng mabagsik na amp just to hear the difference... you mentioned this on your titanium review.

prognostication, my friend. thank you for your optimism  :wink:

Seriously, guys, esp. BAMF, you should think of patenting this product...  it has happened a lot of times, great ideas from filipinos were either stolen or bought at a ridiculously low price....  if you guys plan on marketing this worldwide, there a re a whole lot of opportunists out there who will pounce on an idea and claim it as their own....
From a legal point of view, yung inventor ang talo pag nangyari yun....  sayang if its an original or pioneering idea pa naman....

Just wanting to protect our own, so to speak.... it doesn't cost much to do, but the protection you get is priceless....


More power, BAMF et al....  ps... will this work on ANY guitar?  I have an old Bruno Conqueror bolt on neck hollow body, nice tone but anemic.... i wonder if the scalarizer can change this?  

By the way, regarding name ideas, it should be called the SCANDALIZER, because (as the testimonials are showing) it can make any guitar sound Scandalizingly good..... wheheehehe  :-D :-D

na-scalarized lang kanina yung gitara ko. very nice! high five! :lol:

pano ko ba explain yung tunog? basta naging buhay na buhay. nung nag-wah ako na solos, parang tumatalong yung bent notes sa upper frets habang nag-ssweep yung wah.

kung susubukan ko man i-explain, parang naging mas balanced yung output ng tunog sa bass-low mid frequencies. tapos may enhancement sa upper mid presence. pleasing sa tenga yung nadagdag na freqs, hindi yung masakit sa ulo. tapos nadagdagan yung clarity - patay tayo jan! rinig na yung mga sabit sabit ko lagi. :lol:

tama ba yung analysis ng tenga ko bamf? hirap kasi i-explain ung tunog e. basta gumanda siya. :-D

to all users who have used or those who had their guitars scalarizzled:


will you guys please describe the tone?

im curious... but im not a curiosity buyer so ill need a little convincing rather than hearing "gumanda ang tunog" etc.

if anyone could fix some descriptions to what the mod does to the sound (or provide soundclips if possible), it would be a GREAT help for me and for those who are having second thoughts of buying the little gizmo.

bamf: is it possible to make an internal switch para makakapili ka between two types? i dont know if this is possible. but if it can be done, consider me a sure buyer of 2 scalarizers


Brother Paengkee,

as for your question, i'll to describe it in away you would fully appreciate and understand this concept.This is how BAMF explained to me before and after he installed the scalarizer.

I have a Fender MIJ 62 ri which I use as my main axe. it sport your normal vintage sound since its equipped with TExas Specials (ALNICO pups). Before the scalarizer, it has the fender tone that everyone is aware of,  warm, punchy, a bit biting but sweet. Kulas describes my pup configuration as hot..But for me ...as long as it sounds good when its clean and smooth when overdriven ok na sakin.

But what made it better after the scalarizer? It had more punch, the detail of every notes went crystal clear in a matter of seconds after it was installed. The sparkle was way clearer than it was before, and I even had a smoother tone when drive  mode is engaged.

I had this installed on the epiphone pro series 1 with OLB pups as well.  same effect...even better. crystal scalarizer pa lng yan.  I was thinking....waht if I install the metal version...psychic_sushi has it on the tele...chito_eoi and the others followed...

If ur not convinced...ask the other people who were BAMF'ed up. Its a worthy investment if u are to ask us. tulong na namin ito nina BAMF sa ating mga Filipino mguitar and bass players..we deserve great tone to complemet our skills, no matter what level.....even this can make a miracle out of any [gooey brown stuff] guitar, make a good guitar sound better and improve your technique (kasi, sa  clarity ng tunog , ur mistakes on the fretboard are easily heard. so we as players should find ways to minimize mistakes if possible)

So far that's all i can say. I didnt create this so BAMF can tell you the technical details of this product, what I do basically is to market the scalarizers so we can share it to the Filipino musician. Kahit di philmusikero welcome to try it. How I wish you were here in manila so you can experience the scalarizer.

Isa lng pare...di ka magsisisi...hindi ko ginusto managank ung thread na sinimulan ko..it only shows that they are satisfied. be one of us...u'll definitely appreciate the results.

Post by: dominant_chord2005 on January 26, 2007, 02:09:16 AM
As I said before, nothing can do what a titanium block can do.  Electronic enhancements are not the same.  The titanium block with titanium saddles expands the vibrational qualities of the guitar and makes 10 gauges feel like 9s in ease of playing but at the same time retaining the volume and tone of 10s.  

By the way, you started the comparison.  Ang mali sa iyo, you compared actual physical hardware versus something you stick to the electronics of a guitar.  I do not discount that the scalarizer can affect/improve the sound of the guitar but it will not improve it like the way titanium does.  I am not saying one type is better than the other but rather both affect the guitar sound differently.  So you cannot compare.

1. Before you claim expansiveness, let me define it.  You need a guitar with good sounding wood that vibrates and you need an amp with the ability to project sound in a 3d soundstage.  Now your mod can make things sound clearer and better but I doubt that it is expansive.

2. Even a paper in oil capacitor upgrade in the tone circuit which you maligned ages ago can be immediately heard on any amp.  

3. A [gooey brown stuff] guitar will remain [gooey brown stuff] in terms of character.  In short, a dead sounding guitar will not sound alive with your mod.  

4. There is no cost to ratio comparison because titanium parts affect the sound differently than any modification on the electronic circuit.  

Are you really sure about Anton's strat about smokin my Strat?   Do you have an idea what my Strat has smoked?  Do you know who has used my strat to record? Do you know about all the modifications that have gone thru my Strat which still perfectly looks like a 54 Strat?  

I have nothing against your scalarizer.  A year ago you kept on berating Paper in Oil Capacitors now you are promoting this one of a kind thingy.  You have no idea at all how a million peso rig will sound like so stop claiming that your small thingy does just that becase even if I am just half way there, I will tell you that it aint just a scalarizer.


Hey...here comes the madman....

Since you are boasting your temblock equipped fender..why not try my scalarized Fender 62 ri MIJ strat. compare it yourself.  Kung feeling mo eh angat ka dahil me Diezel Herbert ka and a series of your so-called super strats....try mine....just like what BAMF said, 7pm this saturday... Di ako takot because I know what my Mihiro can do....and if u combine both Akane and Mihiro's tone power...u might get blown away.

I respect your ability and knowledge about gears but please....not on our domain... we already know what ur Herbert can do thanks to other's testimony of those who already tried it....dont fool others that you already know what the scalarizer can do because u havent even tried it on your guitar. this sat 7pm...kung ipipilit mo... see you there!!!

Parang the Prestige. Oi BAMF when you bump into a device that can multiply my pedals, cables and guitars, I'm getting one. :D

The source is even older than the eighties. Think turn of the twentieth century. Nikola Tesla.

yeah, maganda naman yung nagagawang effect nung "scalarizer" eh. pero no offense, BAMF...

palitan mo naman yung pangalan oh, hehe. it sounds like a device found in 80's sci-fi movies eh, hehe. plus medyo mahirap bigkasin, hehe. baka pwede mong pangalanan in the lines of the sonic stomp or sonic maximizer. maybe we can call it a "sonic expander" since it expands the sonic characteristics of guitars... in short, we can name it...

@BAMF, a few honest questions:

1) How do you thing ageing would impact the performance of your device?
2) Any plans of patenting it?
3) Would a post-signal chain device using a different configuration of the same component be viable? I'm interested in its potential as a post-modeller device.
4) If putting it in the guitar ("in contact with the wood") has any effect on the tone, as you suggested in the other thread, wouldn't that mean that its performance in an XLR box is compromised?

1- Gets better with time
2- yes, KitC is referring me to a lawyer specializing in patents
3- Not yet fully explored although the results with an off-instrument unit were not that fantastic.
4- For some reason, yes, the most optimal position is inside the instrument, in contact with the wood.

Update - It's confirmed. The metal scalarizer is PERFECT for funk bass.

That grating, buzzing sound normally produced as a bass is slapped and plucked disappeared and in its place ensued a harmonically-related, musical noise. Mahirap paliwanag. But at least that's the findings.

I'll let Deacon_Blues comment on it for himself. We replaced the crystal scalarizer on his bass with a metal-core one.

what the SCALARIZER has done to my Ibanez RGR470 DW with stock pick-ups tone.

first we tried to hear the natural sound of the guitar on a Fender Stage 112 amp...
-the sound is quite ok, except when i use my neck pu... sabog yung tuog (masyadong ma bass)
-then we tried the metal scalarizer, nag balance yung tunog nung neck pu.. nabawasan yung low freq nya and mas naging detailed yung      tunog ng bawat strings...
-then we tried the cristal scalarizer, much bright yung tunog nya kesa sa metal scalarizer...
-i preffer to use the metal scalarizer... more mids on the tone., mas nagustuhan ng tenga ko epekto nito.

was planning to buy an EMG pick-ups for my ax, pero not this time muna....
i know that this PU has a lot to do with with my tone pero just think of the price range,
yung nagawa ng SCALARIZER sa tone ko... yun yung hinahanap ko kung bakit sana ko magpapalit ng pick-ups

  a much clear and balance tone for a very cheap price :)

A client used my bamf'ed strat on last nights session. Nice.  :-D The recorded track was clearer and 'sonically cleaner' (whatever that means, ahehehe). Papunta na ako sa studio to add my own guitar track to the song so I'm a bit excited. Pag sinipag ako subukan ko tapusin yung track, re-learn it, remove the scalarizer, then re-track my parts again to compare.

Sigurado gagamitin ko yung gitara sa gig namin on the 3rd sa Freedom. Shameless plugs rock!  :lol:

Trust me, it's easier to just say what it does than what it exactly is. I tried explaining it to KitC, who is a fellow ECE and I still had a hard time and looking back on how I explained it, it was still in bits and pieces. Di bale, that's not important. We are musicians, so let's just be pragmatic about it. If it works, it works ! Ganun na lang.

It's a small tootsie-roll candy shaped device. An add-on small enough to fit into the cavities of most (if not all) electric guitars. You remove the wire connecting the pickup selector switch and volume control and replace that with this instead. Think of it as a wire replacement. Nothing else needs to be touched inside the guitar, just those two solder joints. And of course, you may order. That's the idea...that the Pinoy musician (first) have superior sounding instruments for far less cost than it takes to replace pickups, trem blocks, hard tails etc.

the mic we used for recording was the same mic thatPeewee used when he recorded the Haze Jam sessions (ung mic ng Mac G4 ni Peewee). flat eq settings , no effects(modulations or time based), its plain clean guitar tone. I just hope na this clip gives justice to our claim na the scalarizer is indeed a marvelous addition to those seeking tone nirvana.

Ok naman sya. Andun pa din yung strat sound. Mas naging controlled yung ibang frequencies. Medyo naging "woody" nga yung tunog. Mas maganda siguro kung push/pull yung isang pot mo para you can take the scalarizer off the signal if you want.

di ko matiis is share sa inyo yung vocal scalarizer....

im not done yet with mixing yung recorded namin last night with my client pero here are some things i gathered re: vocal scalarizer.

* 1st demo mp3 my client gave me eh sobrang payat ng boses nya, di pa magkaka body yung boses nya kung di lalagyan ng reverb or vocal double.

* while me doing rough mix for what we recorded last night kaninang lunch, i tried listening to the vocal track ngayon kasi nagtataka ako bat parang mataba yung boses ngayon w/o me adding a plugin yet  sa vocal track.

* i then compared the vocal track we recorded dito sa house and the one we recorded last night. im pretty sure its not with the mic that was used kasi condenser mics intends to capture all frequencies not to enhance the voice recorded.


ill create a sondclick account muna for this client of mine and ill upload both vocal track wit and without the scalarizer

HEY GUYS... WATCH OUT FOR THE ACOUSTIC SCALARIZER!!!!

when you go to Bamf's place... try to bring an acoustic guitar with you, then try to listen what a scalarizer can do to your acoustic guitar






Ngayon lang ako maka-relate sa thread na 'to.. acoustic na ang usapan eh..

Kakauwi ko lang. Grabe. Every night I come home from the shop, I'm so happy tired.

Upon the suggestion of micsis (actually nauna na sya na subukan) I put a crystal and metal core scalarizer in parallel and tested the guitar.

HOLY [gooey brown stuff] !!!!

It's like two guitarists playing the same notes simultaneously, but on guitars with different characteristics ! Like the solo on Hotel California ! Dualling guitars ! Ang kapal sobra ng tunog, grabe !!!

Ewan ko...my fatigued ears might be fooling me, I have to try this again tomorrow.

Then, I also finished three prototypes of the acoustic scalarizer. Nakuha agad ni Floyd Nikita yung isang prototype.

FREAKY ! Ididikit mo lang sa body ng electric (actually last night sa acoustic guitar namin dinidikit), I mean hawakan mo lang at idikit, and KUMAKAPAL ANG TUNOG NG GUITAR. FREAAAKKY !!!

Actually I shouldn't be that freaked out kasi I knew where I was going when I stuck a ceramic transducer to a disk-type scalarizer. Maybe I surprised myself, I never thought it would actually work !

Ahhh well.

Sa mga pupunta tomorrow, bring your guitars, and I hope someone will bring an acoustic. The new acoustic scalarizer can be installed non-intrusively with Duct Tape...installed inside the sound cavity. If you want it more permanent, construction glue or epoxy or maybe wood glue would do.

Hayy nakoh. The BAMF dictum strikes again. TO PLAY IS TO BELIEVE !
Title: Re: Scalarizer Thread
Post by: micsis on January 27, 2007, 12:18:05 AM
The 2 types of scalarizers connected in parallel into one guitar is like hearing the two characteristcs of each distinctly but still in harmony with each other. No BAMF, its not your fatigued ears coz i was hearing the same effect and i just had dinner then and wasnt tired at all. para kang naka headphone with two separate guitars coming out from each channel. The sustain is even longer and the decay of the notes lingers in the room. Hay naku makatulog na.

Does the scalarizer directly pick up the resonance of the strings when in contact with the wood even without a transducer?

I'm not sure if such thickness as per your comments is always a good thing, though.

In any case, I would've volunteered my acoustic if I could go tomorrow. Maybe next week. But I'll pass on the duct tape. lol!

The first, first prototype, which turned out to be a dud (open circuited core) didn't work. Which I think now, means that the ceramic transducer is necessary to transfer the vibrations to the core.

And yeah, the thickness will be a matter of preference, not really something that everyone will appreciate. For one, I like the "airyness" of my RJ PRS, which suddenly "solidifies" when the acoustic scalarizer is brought into contact.

For acoustic guitars, it gives this sense of "body",as if your guitar is a deep dreadnought, even if you're playing a slim-bodied guitar. . I wanna test drive it pa more before I openly offer it to the community.

ah... so it does sort of act like a pickup by itself? it's the only other possible explanation i could come up with based on what i heard from peewee's soundclip. nagkaroon kasi ng kaunting faux acoustic character yung tunog.
Title: Re: Scalarizer Thread
Post by: BAMF on January 27, 2007, 12:17:47 PM
Only the acoustic scalarizer has a ceramic transducer, because the core must be fed with a guitar signal. On the crystal and metal-core scalarizers, this signal comes directly from the pickups.

Yep, the crystal core scalarizer, by default, introduces a sort of faux-acoustic effect. In person, it's more like a "3D" effect.  This is what is in Kulas's guitar.

The explanations are not in the realm of electronics, Bos Al. Try Scalar Physics :D

sir Al...napansin mo ba ung sound nya ....it has a tinge of acoustic tone in it. Peewee and I noticed the difference nung ginamit namn sa Cube amp nya..meron na parang acoustic sound. before the aria pups sounded very harsh. after we installed it even Kulas was convinced of the transformation. He decided to record it to compare the difference when recorded. ung slight volume drop happened when he changed positions na medyo malayo ng konti sa amp kaya un naging result.

Sir..try mo..wala naman mawawala eh...u can have it removed if you dont like the results. Knowing ur capabilities and knowledge better off than the other guy we all know...you yourself can judge well if this gizmo is really worth it.

Ahhh your Seafoam Green Epi Strat...sister of my own Blackie. Bring it.

But bring a Tele or two, just in case. The scalarizer is very unobstrusive to install...with only 2 solder joints. And on Les Pauls and Tele's, installation is a mere 5 minutes.

Pareng Nathan, trust me...no matter how much you love your Tele's, you will love them even more !

BTW, update : Anton's Fender MIJ Tele is now double-scalarized, meaning it has both crystal and metal cores installed. Weee...pakinggan nyo na lang mamaya.

ayt. what time ka nasa pimp house? we have practice later. dalhin ko na din yung strat.

also, do you think its possible to hook it up to a knob or something? that way you can dial in how much it affects the sound.

you should have a demo guitar with a mini toggle so you can switch it in and out. para testers can actually sample the with and without sound without waiting for you to drop it in. 8-)

Yes, my RJ PRS is wired with a switch, although right now it switches between crystal and metal cores. Its a 5-second mod to have it switch between scalarized and bypass scalarized.

But again, trust me, you won't need that knob or that switch :D

i'm pretty much in the same stance as nuts. i'm not really inclined to mess with my electrics again. i have all the clarity and sparkle i want. but i will probably bring in my acoustic guitar when time permits. if the scalarizer can make a decent recording instrument out of it, then great!

About 3 days ago, i went to bamf's place para ipa-mod yung wah ped ko and at the same time nakipag-deal ako kay boosted.

nung pag dating ko dun kina bamf, boosted was like saying... "langya ka bamf holdaper ka!" I didnt react that much kasi di ko alam yung nangyayari... yun pla kalalagay lng ng scalarizer dun sa ibby ni boosted.

so dedma parin ako. i was thinking, "eh ano nmn kinaganda yung tono eh mij yung ibby nya mahogany yung body tapos naka 10 pa yung strings". and at that point wala pa nmn kc akong point of comparison so sige wla lang.

the next day, nung kukunin ko na yung wah pedal ko kay bamf.  inaalok nya ako na lagyan ko daw ng scalarizer yung ibby ko. sceptical parin ako kc kuntento nko sa ibby ko, then deadlifted came in with his yamaha studio lord. first, tinest namin yung studio lord. panalo yung sustain, warm na mejo gloomy yung tunog (as expected from an LP).

tapos nilagyan namin nung crystal scalarizer and man... grabe! nagulat ako... wlang effects, recta sa amp, nakuhang lagyan ng scalarizer ng sparkling effect yung LP!

nung naisip ko tama si boosted, HOLDAPER SI BAMF!!! hahaha!

Post by: micsis on January 27, 2007, 03:29:00 PM
Review using: Esprit guitar, all mahogany chambered body, set neck rosewood fretboard, dual duncan designed humbuckers.

Originally i put a metal-s for both pickups and the result was clear overall sound, balanced lows and emphasized upper mids. When i split the coils, I noticed that they sounded like P-90s. Then i tried the classic crystal-s, same overall effect but less mids. Then put a crystal-s on the neck pickup and metal-s on the bridge. Great results-bell like tones in the neck and hot punchy in the bridge position.

Later veg-joe suggested connecting the two types in parallel affecting both pickups. So i did it and thats how the soon to be released duo-core scalarizers was conceptualized. Its like listening to two gutars in unison but distinctly yet in harmony. gulo ba? Basta ganun.

To fully appreciate having two types of scalarizers in a guitar, its best that you hear them function individually, to entune your ears to the character of each. Some would be happy with just the crystal-s or metal-s. Depends in your taste, type of music, type of guitar etc. The great thing is there is a scalarizer suited for you. Now there is even an acoustic version pa!

Another way to look at the effect of the scalarizer:

Its like using an equalizer to smoothen edges, increase frequencies that lack and remove annoying frequencies. In short, whatever you dont like about the tone of your guitar, it will fix. No need for an equalizer.
Save time and money on experimenting which pickup and hardware combination etc etc to install cause its just a never-ending quest. Imo, no pickup will ever be perfect for you. This device will help you reach the ultimate tone.

Its like a mic inside ur guitar that pickups the wood vibration hence the 'woody' effect. Unlike magnetic pickups that pickup the strings vibration (of course he vibration of the strings is also wood dependent. You 'hear' the wood and the strings at the same time hence the 3D effect and longer sustain.

In my tele:

Like Nathan, I also thought my tele was clear and punchy enough but I put in a crystal-s anyway. Result - Lalo pang luminaw but sans the high peaks. Now i dont need to rolldown the tone knob ever so often. Mas nagkapunch pa. Mas dinig ko yung wood tone ngayon.

i just had my gold top scalarized!!!

waaaaaaaw! galing!

at first i was skeptical about it. that it was more of a psychological effect.
i was there for nearly 3 hours more, trying both
the metal core, the crystal and both at the same time, i really saw the difference!

your guitar looses any harshness that it has.
if you are a tone freak and is very meticulous about your tone
 this is a good investment!

I got the metal core scalirizer since it fits the sound that id want.
The crystal one is for those who are into a more twangy or "crystal" (hence the name)/glassy (without the harshness) sound

Sir jobet, elmo, anton salamat! galing!!

Title: Re: Scalarizer Thread
Post by: BAMF on January 28, 2007, 09:17:38 AM
Aight.

The general rule of thumb is crystal for single coils, metal for humbuckers.

But hindi pa din. It will still depend on the personal preferences. Crystal was very good for LP's, but Balta liked the sound of metal on his LP. Personally din, I like crystal when on the clean channel, but the metal is undeniably (to my ears) better once you engage an overdrive pedal.

Which brings me to another rule of thumb, which can also be broken. Crystal for clean or near-clean music, and metal for hi-gain distortion. But like I said, it too can be broken. It's really in the ears of the guitar owner :D

Of course you can hear the difference in the clips, but the key phrase here is "soundclips can't do justice..."

man.. the soundclips don't even do justice to these guys' works. you have to be there to experience the [gooey brown stuff]. wooo. tone heaven guys. that's all i can say. punta na kayo. requesting for clips and/or videos won't even capture the full 3 dimensional sound produced. kahit nga scalarizer lang, naknampucha, panalo na. all are available at affordable prices! at customizable pa ang pwedeng gawin nyo sa pedals nyo, depende sa taste nyo. san ka pa di ba? at mas ok dito, ok sila kasama lahat. it's my first time i've been with these guys, and hell, instant chums agad. panalo pa sa usapan at kulitan! hehehe. at eto pa, i didn't even bring something to get modded.. i just hung out there. kung tutuusin, sinamahan ko alng si balta na magpa scalarize ng guitar at magpa mod ng pedal nya. accommodating dun! kaya pumunta na kayo! hehehe. pero syempre, hearing the improvements sa tone, i'll have my sd2 modded and les pauls scalarized ASAP! hehehe! YEAH!

go BAMFX! more power chongs! inuman naman next time! :)

At least now you feel how the rich lonely man feels when people ask for soundclips.  :wink:

Anyway, I haven't tried the scalarizer but I think the risk of buying one is so diminuitive compared to getting a, titanium bridge...

BAMF, more power to you.  If you can send me your cellphone number baka bumili ako and i-recommend ko abroad...

i hear ya bro. :) but the point i'm putting more emphasis at is the change done to your guitar and/or pedal with just a few minor modifications that are surprisingly and definitely affordable. grabe talaga. pero yeah, i get your point regarding oas' stand regarding demoing and experiencing his stuff live. i just can't get over by the fact that i heard the effect of bamf pedal and guitar mods first hand.. naging absurd tuloy yung point ni sir alex gomez about better parts = better tone eh. wala lang. it's just my opinion so.. there.. hehe. good day :)

Talked to a guy who was at the Elegee/Foghorn tone party.

Their review in three words : NO BIG DEAL. They were just being polite and non-confrontational.

A bigger "titanium" nail in the coffin coming soon. Heck...maybe two.

Eyyy thanks Dodgie, and sure, you can count on it. Come over ! The PIMP Hive is fast becoming the Unofficial HQ of Philmusic :D .

There will be lotsa happy folk coming tomorrow. If you can, bring an acoustic guitar. I wanna test drive the acoustic scalarizer more, although it is very very encouraging. Ano sabi ni Max ? Electronic daw dahil kelangan i-solder ? E paano nya kaya explain yung acoustic scalarizer na DINIDIKIT LANG SA BODY, TUMATABA ANG TUNOG ? Hahehehe.

Tone is not in the wallet. I was wrong din, it's not in the soldering iron. It's somewhere between the ears !

Hey guys!

I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to all the folks that dropped by on Saturday! It was a blast, playing with all those toys, hearing how the scalarizers affected different guitars, and looking at all the happy faces that had their ears tweaked. Awesome!

i say i say i say...no foghorn leg horn in sight. probably bus at Max's building a new house (hahahaha :-D)

as for the dual-scalarizer tele i have, here's my quicky review:

The tele (an 86 mij fender, to the unfamiliar), out fitted with a set of emg t's originally sported the crystal scalarizer. thyis gave it a very acoustic tone (as veggiejoes fingers and ears witnessed). and treated the sterility that is associated with active pick ups. this axe is my "kamikaze jazz shred box, i dont mind it gathering battle scars, and whisper to it whenever i find a new ding on its being i softly whisper- "life's a b#tch... learn to f#ck it!"  :-D

anyways, i really dug the acoustic qualities, the separation and harmonic spread was fantastic, but i wanted a little bit more electricity-oomph, so we tried the metal. the woodiness increased, the glassy presence was still there but the extra mids gave the tone a real kick in the rumps. the neck pick up got more jazz smoky, bridge barked, in between was good too. it grew rock balls!

then comes micsis' text about a dual config.

having more surgery done, with classic BAMF and Sushi tech horniness (i gues creativity is in the hormones!), BAMF proceeded with the operation. results?

The only guitar I used to describe my utmost praise was Nardski's Matsumoto nylon string, for that box exhuded beauty, and tone, that exemplified the beauty of NATURE. Now, this tele had that too!
I am not exaggerating by saying that the dual scalarizer tele (which BAMF dubbed the "crystalmeta") spoke with the delicacy and gentleness of a rainforest, roared like the ocean and moved air like rolling thunder!

i got the best of both worlds: definition and detail, a full sound, a and a broad spectrum. yes, it was 3D, it was vivid! and everyone noticed that i sat in the studio a helluva lot longer than usual, and played with more sensitivity than ever. masarap...  my bakemono was growling with gratitude and pleasure. and guess what? I got to welcome the return of the twang! It was (in bruce almighty expression) GOOOOOOOD!

heck, with my god-awful sched, i look forward to getting home to play it! feel free to give it a try.

Title: Re: Scalarizer Thread

nope, two scalarizers in the over all circuit. and it is possible to have one per pickup, to affect the pick up individually according to scalarizer type.

And on the second hand, my other businesses are liquid, as well as the other operations that I'm a part owner of. I can always request for an inter-company loan to fund production of the scalarizers. Heck, I dipped into the funds of my other company to fund the recording studio :D

Saka...the design is kinda like an AK47. Cheap and easy to produce. There are no more corners to cut ! :D Skilled labor is not even a prerequisite for production !

Aaaa Papa Joric ! I want your ES335 ! Can I pay you in scalarizers plus cash ?

The test for acoustic scalarizers are getting very very encouraging. I borrowed an Ovation Applause bowlback on a long term basis (inaalikabok lang sa me ari e) so I can do long-term tests. I'm sure it will do wonders for your Dobro. The metal resonators have harsh overtones. Maybe the acoustic scalarizers can smooth them out and make even the noises musical. It sure did that for Tinnie's bass.

Yes it is a concern. And yep I have to protect the Intellectual Property on this.

But here's the thing. While it was invented recently, the technology behind it I've been working on for the past...lessee...since 2001...that's 6 years. It might look simple to the naked eye, but it's not. And it doesn't draw from the regular sciences we know. They'll have to study scalar physics and Tesla theories to even come close.

So, yes, I think the 6 months required to close a patent application should be enough time to get things in motion. And I'm sure Behringer will not copy it...for reasons I won't detail here hehehehe.

So let's enjoy the thing na lang, at its price points and what not, before the wind changes.

BAMF, I just wonder if you presented your scalarizer as something made out of rocket science.  And do blatant lies like "It cost $50 to build hence I'm selling it for $80."  Do you think may kakagat?

Bottomline is, it seems like everyone is raving about the scalarizer, but say you jacked up the price, IS IT STILL THAT GOOD THAT BOUTIQUE FOLKS WOULD FALL FOR IT?  I mean, so good like Krispy Kreme Doughnuts that I would pay 3x more for them in Hong Kong...

Oh, to add more madness to the "crystal met"-

we tried the acoustic scalarizer on the tele. holy gourd!!!

with light contact on the headstock with the already dualled tele, the increase in resonance was heard and felt! think of it as 3D, with added lushness. it screwed me up!

we did a blindfold thing with xalien, and it was undeniable. on the headstock, behind the bridge, on the back of the tele. the funny thing is, when "disconnected" from the wood, the guitar felt softer, less resonant.

I wanted it back. its effect is not like, how can i say it, putting extra sauce on your spaghetti. its more like adding a few extra millimeters and garlic to the meatball in it. tasty!

or, extra light in an object in a painting to give it extra dimension. i [gooey brown stuff] you not, heavy 3D dude.

Well Dodgie, in business, there are two pricing models that I know of. The first is the cost-based model and the second is the value-based model.

Cost based models are only for those things that are commoditized and can be sourced from multiple sources. Rice for instance. If it's cheaper to buy and consume Thai rice and the government allows it, their lower cost will definitely be a hit.

Then there's the value-based model. This is tricky because it operates on the question of "how much value is this to the buyer ?". Pretty good for monopolized or oligarchized products. Like you'd pay USD$500 for a goatskin bag of water to a Bedouin because it's that valuable to you, and there's nowhere else to get it.

When I set the International price, the buyers don't need to know my cost models. They just have to ask the question of what value the scalarizer is to their tone. :D

Viva Karl Marx ! Ay teka...patay na pala sya.

BAMF, I just wonder if you presented your scalarizer as something made out of rocket science.  And do blatant lies like "It cost $50 to build hence I'm selling it for $80."  Do you think may kakagat?

Bottomline is, it seems like everyone is raving about the scalarizer, but say you jacked up the price, IS IT STILL THAT GOOD THAT BOUTIQUE FOLKS WOULD FALL FOR IT?  I mean, so good like Krispy Kreme Doughnuts that I would pay 3x more for them in Hong Kong...

Which leads us to the question, HOW MUCH VALUE WOULD YOU PUT TO A SCALARIZER?  Example:

At P500 - THE BEST IN THE WORLD
At P1000 - Puwede na rin.
At P2000 - Great but a bit costly.
At P3000 - Still great if you're really that serious about tone...
At P4000 - I'd rather get new pickups...

Aight ! That's the idea !

Then again, you have to factor in the FOREX issue.

USD$50, for instance, is nothing to the Americans. It's gasoline money.

But its like...what...a month's salary in India ? And in China where the daily wage is like P40.

So the P500 for Pinoys...pretty good. Saka ko na latag yung ibang mga plans. But rest assured, the Pinoy musician will always have preferential treatment even when the Scalarizer hits the big time.

Price is of little consequence up to a point, but that point itself is an extremely relative thing. It seems the pimpboys recognize the economic factors and will figure out the business side of it. I’m just glad I'm not in the position to take these things into consideration and am even happier that bamf trusts the community enough to allow us to be a part of the r&d process. For that they have my support as well as my critique.

That said...Bamf, I am India-nesque. Wehehehehe.

The test for acoustic scalarizers are getting very very encouraging. I borrowed an Ovation Applause bowlback on a long term basis (inaalikabok lang sa me ari e) so I can do long-term tests. I'm sure it will do wonders for your Dobro. The metal resonators have harsh overtones. Maybe the acoustic scalarizers can smooth them out and make even the noises musical. It sure did that for Tinnie's bass.

I'm excited about this one in particular cuz I know I don't have the best acoustic instruments.  But I don't have GAS either to upgrade. Some low cost modifications to enhance sustain and tone would be nice. 

Let's see., let's see.. for Delta blues, sometimes harsh is good. ;-)  But maybe the "acousticalizer" can help transform my dobro into a Tricone -- smoother like a Hawaiian lap steel -- when I want those tones. ;-)

Naykupo ! Mas malaki pa sa share namin ni Anton combined pag nagkataon ! Hehehe. Thanks so much for your vote of confidence. I think I should give Max a .05% honorary share. After all, this would not have been possible if not for his oasholeness.

But even if it's low-cost, trust me ser, the results are not worth P500. Its a quantum leap in tone. I mean when you consider that people spend P22,000 for a titanium tremblock of almost zero consequence, it's a steal! A "presyong adik" hehehe.

Just telling the truth. That is, if he is reffering to an electric guitar he owns - I might have wrongly assumed that he has one when he might have been referring to his acoustic.

But really, how can one hear the difference (and thus make a good judgment of the device) between pre- and post- scalarizer installation if one doesn't have access to the guitar's amplified sound? Heck, how do you plan to use it (if it's an electric) if you don't have an amp to begin with?

I agree totally. assuming that you do not have an amplifier yet, its high time that you buy a diezel herbert or a bogner shiva...

Hey guys!
...

as for the dual-scalarizer tele i have, here's my quicky review:

The tele (an 86 mij fender, to the unfamiliar), out fitted with a set of emg t's originally sported the crystal scalarizer. thyis gave it a very acoustic tone (as veggiejoes fingers and ears witnessed). and treated the sterility that is associated with active pick ups. this axe is my "kamikaze jazz shred box, i dont mind it gathering battle scars, and whisper to it whenever i find a new ding on its being i softly whisper- "life's a b#tch... learn to f#ck it!"  :-D

anyways, i really dug the acoustic qualities, the separation and harmonic spread was fantastic, but i wanted a little bit more electricity-oomph, so we tried the metal. the woodiness increased, the glassy presence was still there but the extra mids gave the tone a real kick in the rumps. the neck pick up got more jazz smoky, bridge barked, in between was good too. it grew rock balls!

then comes micsis' text about a dual config.

having more surgery done, with classic BAMF and Sushi tech horniness (i gues creativity is in the hormones!), BAMF proceeded with the operation. results?

The only guitar I used to describe my utmost praise was Nardski's Matsumoto nylon string, for that box exhuded beauty, and tone, that exemplified the beauty of NATURE. Now, this tele had that too!
I am not exaggerating by saying that the dual scalarizer tele (which BAMF dubbed the "crystalmeta") spoke with the delicacy and gentleness of a rainforest, roared like the ocean and moved air like rolling thunder!

i got the best of both worlds: definition and detail, a full sound, a and a broad spectrum. yes, it was 3D, it was vivid! and everyone noticed that i sat in the studio a helluva lot longer than usual, and played with more sensitivity than ever. masarap...  my bakemono was growling with gratitude and pleasure. and guess what? I got to welcome the return of the twang! It was (in bruce almighty expression) GOOOOOOOD!

heck, with my god-awful sched, i look forward to getting home to play it! feel free to give it a try.


Now that is a GAS-inducing review if I ever saw one.  The descriptions of the scalarizer has actually made me rethink about what guitar I should keep.  I have a hunch it will do wonders in a 335 w/ P90s...  (tingin mo vjoe?) ;-)

I have gotta get me one of these!!!

Yup! GAS inducing! So much so that I spent Sat. night outfitting 3 more guitars with crystal sparklers.

I'm sure the sparklers can work wonders for most if not all guitars. But which to go with for your 335? Crystal or metal? Or both? Switchable? Hehehehe!

It would be nice to try them all to find out which combinations suit our individual tastes/ears. Being the tinkerer that I am, I'm already thinking of a way to rig up an unobstrusive selector switch... kaya lang nahirapan ako to work in those guitar cavities.... fumble fingers eh.

But my fumbling, bumbling attempts were worth it. It was hard to put down each guitar after putting in the crystal scalarizer. I just wanted to keep playing, even if only at low volume and clean. The strat now sounds much sweeter. I was skeptical that noiseless pickups could be improved on, but I like this Kinman set even more now! The tele sounds even better - still fat, but also clearer on the neck pup, but not shrill on the bridge pup. Tho I have to play this one some more (esp in OOP mode) so as to put my finger on what else changed for the better... (ear fatigue, plus my durned neighbor is a real kj)

I also noticed tonal changes to the Esprit. The previously slightly-muddy sounding neck pickup(Duncan-Designed '59) now sounds clear and defined. The previously sharp sounding bridge pickup (Duncan-Designed JB) gained some low-end and roundness - much more pleasant to me. Both pickups in tapped mode also gained some roundness. (Tapped neck sounds a bit similar to a strat now.) As did the OOP modes.

I can't wait to try these guitars out on a loud amp!

And I can hardly wait to try the metal scalarizers on the same guitars.

And for sure I want to try what the guitars will sound like with both scalarizer models in them! GAAAASSSSSS!

sir kelvinator,
I would rather presume you mean to upgrade to a better amp. Or, if you don't have one yet, you at least currently have access to amps of friends or at places you gig/play. And are therefore familiar with your guitar's stock tone/s.

I would then therefore say go for the scalarizer first, because:
1. it is a bang for the buck modification that is affordable and therefore doable immediately; and
2. the scalarizer mod may (or may not) affect your final choice of amp afterwards... in terms of whether you will go with or can make do with something that is brighter or warmer? bigger or smaller? louder or quieter?

just IMHO po... Good luck, bro...

another experiment we tried this afternoon was to scalarized the drums. at first it was not really planned, i only supposed to change the drums skin and heads of the snare then i asked BAMF what will be the effect if ill try it with the snare drum.

Both of us were really surpised when i pond the snare with the acoustic scalarizer attached on the side of the shell. the sound became more wide and round. i still dont know the effect of this thing during recording.

sino po malapit na nagbebenta nitong scalarizer dito sa makati or sa UST? ano po address nyo para po mapuntahan ko?

My shop is in the Banawe area, close to UST.

Kindly skim through the thread for the address and my contact number (antok nako kakauwi ko pa lang. )

BAMF, when can I drop by with my Randall with 4 modules?  Gonna bring my Oscar Schmidt OE30 and my G&L S-500.  Maybe my SG na rin.  Gusto ko rin sana with the other folks here.  Oas care to come?

Just bring your guitars. Your amp..okay lang but I don't do amps except mine and my friends. :D Oops. I hope I didnt get ahead unnecessarily there. :D

Ngapala update.

ubos na ang crystal scalarizers. You'll have to give me a couple of days to replenish.

Yung Metal, which is the hotter seller at the BAMFx shop, medyo marami pa kasi me bagong batch na natapos.

For those who will have a hard time going to QC area, If you are nearer south metro, I can install them scalarizers. I am in the Sucat Pque area. Most of my stocks ended up installed in my guitars kaya will have to get more stocks from BAMF.

Mga philmusic friends,

Like Boss Micsis, I was tasked by BAMF/Jobet to distribute the scalarizers here in the NOrthern QC area (Commonwealth, Diliman, , Fairview, ) and nearby areas, ung katipunan philmusikeros as well as those peeps from Marikina, Cainta, Antipolo... feel free to PM me if you want to have all your guitars scalarized.

For now I have 3 met cores and 3 crystal cores to install on willing candidates. Same price applies . Walang pagbabago.

PM lng. Thanks

Oh, to add more madness to the "crystal met"-

we tried the acoustic scalarizer on the tele. holy gourd!!!

with light contact on the headstock with the already dualled tele, the increase in resonance was heard and felt! think of it as 3D, with added lushness. it screwed me up!

we did a blindfold thing with xalien, and it was undeniable. on the headstock, behind the bridge, on the back of the tele. the funny thing is, when "disconnected" from the wood, the guitar felt softer, less resonant.

I wanted it back. its effect is not like, how can i say it, putting extra sauce on your spaghetti. its more like adding a few extra millimeters and garlic to the meatball in it. tasty!

or, extra light in an object in a painting to give it extra dimension. i [gooey brown stuff] you not, heavy 3D dude.   

+1
lufet as in! napapalundag kami sa wowness ng nagagawa pag nadidikit siya sa guitar!


fafa! kailangan ko ba magdala ng kambing?  :-D

Got my other guitar scalarized this afternoon. It was great meeting bluejem, edge of illusion and jet? (sorry forgot...my bad). got the metal core, fits well with my guitar.

bluejem - don't forget to to post the pic. :-D

I had my Elegee custom guitar equiped with crystal Scalarizer too and it sounded a lot better.
Nice meeting you to bro.I will post the pics later bro(madyo antok na ako e).or maybe I`ll put up a new scalarizer thread with all the pics taken when we had our axes scalarized. :-D

If you base your purchase decisions solely on recommendations, I don't think you're behaving like an intelligent consumer. Plus, language can be  incomplete and inefficient when describing some things so I really recommend that you skip listening to people's adjectives and just bring your guitar to the shop.

no worries about it bro...we understand ur curiousity about the tool. Its not a stomp box. Its just a minute tool that we apply to the guitar. NO wiring re-modifications, in fact if brightness is an issue with your gear, u might wanna check the following:

1. What type of songs do you play?
2. What kind of guitar are you using? Strat, Tele, Humbucker config guitar?
3. Are you using string gauges  .008-.032? That provides a very bright tone
4. HOw about your tone pots? Can you check your tone pots if they are 500K, ung label na 500K nasa ilalim ng tone potentiometer mo. Kapag ganito nga , u'll definitely get a bright sound out of that pot config

We have a scalarizer available to solve this problem. Although it will still depend on your taste as a player. We had ours installed with such because it fits our playing style. As what I said pare, feel free to try my guitars or the guitars at the BAMFx lab. Balta was very happy with the way his guitar sounded. I can safely say you will be as well, but again, it will still depend on your preference.

Hey bro!

If your issue is with the brightness of your guitar, you'll have to examine your whole signal chain. Your amp, its placement, your eq settings on your effects, the works. Even the room you play in is a factor. dominant's suggestions are great, i encourage you to pursue just all that. the crystal will not add brightness. it adds sparkle and definition by multiplying even harmonics. the metal core would bump up the mids over presence. overall, both are very pleasant.

for more info on the scalarizer, considering the length of this thread it would be best to go through it, as you mentioned wandering into the thread. ity'll be a long read! but worthwhile  :-) yes, i am with you at how confusing it may be as it defies conventional trad physics (i too, have been a long time nikola tesla fan, BAMF and i were destined  :wink:), and I , among other folks have described how it affects your tone with our reviews. the results speak for itself.

now, to spill the beans... wouldn't that be like walking straight into the kitchen of your favorite restaurant to ask the chef what he does and puts into the meal?  :wink:

don't worry about being a MAX jr., that's q-bert's title. your questions are great, keep em coming  :-)

veggie, nakalimutan ko i-post but i have used the strat EXTREMELY loud already. i was suddenly pulled in to play for one of the bands during the livEly show at eastwood. nahirapan ako hanapin tunog nung gitara kasi sobrang lakas sa stage and i really thought i was lost in the mix. pero nung gumilid ako ng konti palayo sa mga kasama ko nagulat ako kasi litaw pala. the guitar was cutting through clearer than i though. kakahiya kasi nag fe-flail lang ako aimlessly through the songs! naka pambahay tsinelas pa naman ako. may effect kaya yun sa tunog? ahehehe.

it was awfully hard to dial in a tone i'd be comfy with because of the sheer volume and the lack of a soundcheck (mga 5 mins to set up), especially for someone like me who is just starting to concentrate on tone a bit more and considering the band, which is hard-hitting, in-your-face, hi-gain riffing with my strat trying to keep up with a greco les paul on steroids. but based on my brief sidestage listening it was good!

tapos tumugtog salindiwa...ganda agad ng tunog ni kakoi! wahahahaha! i love it!

No problem, man. In fact, it's good that you brought up your doubts about it. FYI, I have a scalarizer in my 335 and I'll be paying for it on the next Saturday  after the 31st - after we've tried out the metal and the crystal met combo. All of these things can be reversed/undone in a matter of minutes, or even seconds. What trial period can be better than that?

If BAMF or Psychic_Sushi can bring out a coffee drip on Saturday, I'll be bringing some coffee grounds. If you're not satisified with your visit, at least makapag-kape ka man lang. Tapos daldalan at kuwentuhan nang walang katapusan. As anachronistic as it may seem , the Tone Tambayan seems to be the offline counterpart of Guitar Central - yes, including the occassional porn/Jap AV.

You can PM me anytime if you wish to try it out. I'm residing in Commonwealth Hobart Homes.

I'm not "pihikan". I just live by a single sentence: "Whatever works, works."

To everyone who's wondering about the device, I say this again: TRY IT OUT so you can make a decision for yourself.  When the Diezel issue was hot, I decided to drop by at Arie's place to test drive the amp. Liked some parts of it, didn't like some - at least after a few minutes of playing around with it. Alex knows this and I'm sure all of us will agree in saying that I can say that the DH works for me in some aspects and my statements stand  on fairly good ground because of first-hand experience. Did the same for BAMF's modded Boston HM100 and Big Muff Clone and made judgments for myself. (Although I still have to try out the Big Muff Clone in a relatively open space - that one is a loud son of a bitch.)

Same logic for the scalarizer. I tried it with a solid-state amp, and it was ok. the changes were subtle but you know something happened. I can't really lay my finger on what changed, but something did change.

When I got home, I tried the sucker with an SF Bassman Ten. The difference between pre- and post-scalarizer installation was more pronounced, although I still can't identify what changed. It sounds more pleasing, it's more responsive and it's not as ear fatiguing at high volumes (10 on the channel volume and 5 on the master).

So let's all go to the Tone Tambayan on Saturday and we can all be friends. :)

Masters I have a question, I have an Ibanez RG7321 with stock pickups, IMO the pickups lack output and clarity (I play old school metal) and the low B sounds really muddy. I'm curious about the metal scalarizer, I'm fan of boosted mids and I despise the "scooped sound", will the scalarizer stop my woes or changing the pickups is the only way to go? I'm intrigued with the Dimarzio D activator 7 and planning to buy both the neck and bridge versions once the pickups become available.

best way is still to try it. :D

boss BAMF, do you have available stock for the acoustalizer (tama ba?). myt go there maybe next week and have my 12 strings go for the run medyo middy kasi. although many of us wood has a factor, i'd still like to try it baka magkaroon ng positive results.

Is there anyone installing these items in the Pasig, San Juan, Mandaluyong or Cubao areas?

Thanks.

the sto. domingo bamfx shop is close to cubao. down e.rod towards welcome rotonda, hit quezon ave towards fairview, you'll find the sto. domingo church. we're located along sto. domingo ave.

kung san juan, araneta ave is the best bet.

Thanks so much!
BTW--my apologies if this has been replied to before but would you guys have a fixed schedule as to when you are in the shop? Just asking as I'll be coming from a long way off and it woould be great to be able to met up with you and BAMF personally.

Thanks again!

Good Lordy !

Nangatog tuhod ko sa ganda ng Elegee custom mo bro. Parang nangilid ata ang luha ko sa mata when I saw and played it.

YAN ANG SULIT ! I wouldnt mind pawning my car just to get one of those...

Nice to meet you bro. I'll see you one time at Elegee's shop. Its so darn close pala to where I live. Oh...and I have a couple of guitars that could use the magic touch as well (needs truss rod installation).


Got my other guitar scalarized this afternoon. It was great meeting bluejem, edge of illusion and jet? (sorry forgot...my bad). got the metal core, fits well with my guitar.

bluejem - don't forget to to post the pic. :-D

I had my Elegee custom guitar equiped with crystal Scalarizer too and it sounded a lot better.
Nice meeting you to bro.I will post the pics later bro(madyo antok na ako e).or maybe I`ll put up a new scalarizer thread with all the pics taken when we had our axes scalarized. :-D

Wag kayong maniwala sa pinagsasasabi ni phoenix_rising. Placebo effect lang yang nangyari. Hindi nag-improve ang tunog dahil sa scalarizer. Yung ayuda ang sikreto dyan!  :-D

Nyayon ko lang narinig ang sound clip ni Kulas. Interesting pseudo-spatial effect, like a phantom player ghosting the notes ever-so-subtly. Personally speaking, though, based on the clip I'd prefer having it is as a switchable/dial-in-able effect rather than as my stock sound. Maybe a live audition would change my mind. Pag sinipag  :-)

But first things first. When you coming over to the shop and get your stuff scalarized ? :D Matagal ko na gusto mauna ka fafa Joric, me being a huge fan and all.

Hehe... tnx BAMF, but cmon, I'm just a hack compared to guys like Anton!!!   :-o

...  Albert Collins (ay patay na pala yun). Duane Allman (ay patay na din)...Ahhh...ang siguro overall idol ko sa lahat. Si Clapton ! Kaya lang bingi na daw sya and can't play music na. Tutoo ba yun ? Teka OT na naman....

Well, I am told I my Albert Collins and Duane Allman "impressions" are pretty good so maybe we can test for those tones too.  As for Clapton... pwede bang ung sideman na lang try natin... some kid called Derek Trucks?   Txt ko siya, sabihin ko dalin ung SG nya.  ;-) 

Derek Trucks? I thought you and him were one and the same, him being just a kid copping your licks ala ralph macchio  :-D

matagal na rin kita liniligawan, fafa joric. sagutin mo na koh!!!

I guess magtabi ka ng 1 of each muna.  I want more clarity, woodiness, dynamic range, and sustain for both 335 and SG (later na lang ung Goldtop).  Alin babagay dun - metal or crystal? How about combo, dedicated per pu?

For the acoustic, I'm not sure what i want/need until I know what works for which guitar.  Or is there only one kind of... that... I'm not even sure what it is! I haven't seen a pic kasi e.

Judging from what I *think* you'd like (judging on your togs and tone preference) I would suggest the crystal scalarizer for my Hondo ES 335 (ay teka, hindi pa pala akin yun hahaha). Maybe you'd like a metal-core scalarizer for your SG for a ballsier tone.

Bring an acoustic. We'll try acoustic scalarizers (na hindi na kelangan i-hinang Uh Uh Uh (ayuda)) on them.

In all cases the result is a woodier, more resonant tone. Singing notes and wonderful sustain. I'll fill you in on the quantum scalar physics involved later when you're there. Trust me, you will never even so much as look at a titanium trem block. Except maybe for cosmetic reasons.

Uh Uh Uh (Ayuda !)

Di naman komo it's a metal core, the guitar will spit out a metal tone automatically (nyahahaha). It just means that the sound output will have an upper midrange emphasis (as opposed to an even albeit sparkly tone with the cyrstal scalarizer) which will sound really awesome when brought together with a high-gain pedal. Kahit nga overdrive lang, it will make your guitar sing !

Yeah, I was thinking crystal too.  I don't need more mids, I'd like to keep the eq balance as is on my guitars.  Especially don't want to add any more high-mids to the P90s and even the SG, which has just the right amount of mids for "ngarrrr" tones. ;-)  But it would be nice to actually hear and know for sure what the difference is.

I don't know that my layman's brain has the absorbtive capacity for quantum scalar physics. But if it's anything related to wave theory and explains why the universe seems to expanding in all directions without any end in sight, then put me down for a lecturette, prof Jobet!

yung BT10 ko na scalarized na din yestedrday :evil:

cguro sa mga nag-second thought pa din d2 massabi ko lng try nyo.. kasing presyo lng nman halos ng isang set of string

medyo mahirap talaga describe yung effect e... dun sa guitar ko parang naging "bilog na mas makapal" (round fat??) saka mas naging warm yung tunog when distorted.

pag nkaclean nman mas makapal saka nawla yung harsh sound sa guitar ko especially pag nka chorus effect. pati yung stock pickup ko sa neck biglang ngkaroon ng buhay...

does the scalarizer affect all of the pups on a guitar or do you have to install a scalarizer for each pup?

Other's had 2 scalarizers in their guitar, a crystal on one and the other metal. mix and match. others like myself used only one in a guitar.

so it means that 1 for each pup?

Yeah, other's did that, they wanted different texture sa guitar nila, as for me one did it good for me.

Well guys...

While resting tonight, and in preparation for what could be a "full signal chain shootout", I thought I'd open up my Fender Stage 112 Amp and mod it (whew...some rest).

First, I scalarized the clean channel and double-sushified the overdrive stage (it's got two clip stages anyway, just like a Boss HM2). I also stuck the remaining "kutsinta" acoustic scalarizers to the cabinet. BTW, the sushi module is a clip stage with a small scalarizer in it. That's why other modders (yes including Keeley the man himself) will be hard-pressed to match the BAMFx tone (hehehe...ang daya ko !!)

The results...well yeah I'd say "awesome" again, but don't take it from me.

When Anton came home, I let him hear it. And in his patented wide eyed, nose-curled facial expression of approval, he reaffirmed that it was awesome. Not yet enough to go head on head with a Herbert in the gain department, but definitely it will hold its own and perhaps kick the Herbie's butt in the clarity and the responsiveness department.

But yeah, that's the beauty of OP-Amp gain stages (specially those with high-grade chips like in the Fender Stage)...the open loop gain is enough to make you cry. No tube or set of tubes can even touch an OP-Amp in terms of gain. So well...while I was lacking in forethought on that one, the good thing is it only takes a P7 audiophile grade resistor to boost the gain to unbelievable levels.

Loudness wise, grabe. At "2"on the dial of the overdrive channel, the neighbour from across the street came over and requested that we tone down. Anton says this has never, ever happenned in the entire history of that house. We couldnt play it inside the house (even at "2") because all the windows were rattling and the nearby garbage can started to walk towards us (AWOOO !!!). Well...160 watts of pure cascaded MOSFET power is to blame. Gosh. My ears are still ringing from that series of tests. Tesla's "negative resistance" seems to be at work here. And 3D talaga sya ha ! Move a little , it's in the left ear...move a little again, and it's in the right ear. Surround sound !

Well guys. The age of the Tube Amps tone superiority over solid state is coming to a close. To play is to believe. If you come to the Saturday tone party, this monster will be there to greet you.

My new problem is, I ceased to have a "reference amp" for use when comparing scalarized and non-scalarized guitars. Most likely, any guitar stuck into the Fender Stage will sound good ! Oh well.

I receive a text message form one of our soon to be scalarized philmusicians...

Here are their questions:


1. Is the scalarizer different from the pickup booster?

2. I have a strat, and ovation and a tele, which scalarizers should I install on the three guitars?

3. If I have it installed, can I get the guitar right away?


Here are my answers as per Master BAMF's instructions:


1. The scalarizer enhances your tone and does not boost the signal picked up by your guitar. From the words of bluejem it transforms ur normal guitar signal into scalar waves therefore the tonal range is wide.

2. Most customers prefer crystal core on their strats and metal core on their humbucker guitars, but it will still depend on your tastes as a player. As far as we are concerned, most hig gain player prefer the metal core because it provides creamy, smooth, pristine tone when engaged on high gain while the blooze players choose the crystal core since it enhances the tone of your strat to play grittier , meaty blues

3. Yes...it only takes 30 mins at the most to install it on a guitar.

Kaya pala Scalarizer  :-)  although hindi ko pa din maintindihan in theory, pakabit na nga lang ako and hear the difference para maintindihan!

@Master BAMF and Co., papakabit na ko kaso may ineexpect po akong mga bagong pickups 2 weeks from now, mas OK po bang intayin ko muna ung bagong pickups before scalarizing ?  sa mga nabasa ko po kasi parang ung scalarizer nakaconnect siya sa pickups, tama po ba?

brother, try to wait for the pups, although ang effect ng scalarizer would be felt on stock and replacements pickups of any quality....from the previous posts, we did mention scalarizing an RJ LP (re: an evening with the bakemono d1 thread) w/c BAMF says has low quality pups and made a fantastic sound out of it. its your choice..if u want it stock..we'll scalarizr it as stock or if u want the new pups on ur scalarized geetars, its ur call..really doesnt matter since the effect is basically the same..it will work wonders on your axe.

Hardogai!!!!!!!

Oki doki, here's my take on the BAMFED SUSHIFIED Fender Stage (and my wide-eyed, nose curled expression  :-D)

Most folks are familiar with the Fender Stage, or Fender solid state amps in general. This one, stock, seemed to be overly compressed in the overdrive department (think "sipon tone") and clean wise, it was pretty good.

I was totally floored when  we cranked it outside the house (take note, 2 o'clock palang!). the double sushified overdrive section was wide open  :-o, very responsive to nuances, and has the fabled "bakemono/sushi" dynamic range where you can do a whole gig with the gain cranked, and modulate from clean to shred with your volume knob. It was a warm, clear texture, with more thrust than you can poke hardgay razor ramon sumitani's cigarette penis extinguisher at! Fuuuuuuuu!!! 

Now, with the volume test

We were greeted by very pleasant frequencies with at high volume! It didn't hurt my ears at all! to think that the whole sto.domingo area was flooded with scalarized tone, was great in all directions (i was about 10 meters away from the amp pacing at different degrees) and the propusion of the tone was uncanny! the forward thrust, man, into the atmosphere. In fact, a neighbour politely pleaded that we attenuate the volume (could be a retillian ploy, heheheheh)

wait til the gain gets bumped up into the super saturation area.... as with classic BAMFX tone... clear, sensitive and punchy...  :mrgreen:

But I don't have the money, inclination and maybe the intellectual horsepower to pull something like that off. However, many new customers report that their guitar's output actually increased (although I'm not betting it will happen all the time). Could this be the Tesla Negative Resistance at work again here ? Hmmmm....

i just wish i could have made before and after sound clips, kaso no time na eh.

anyway, thanks DOMINANT_CHORD2005 for bring it to the "Citadel of Tone" (if you guys use that, just remember i coined it! hehehe)
and of course BAMF for working on my strat, you truly are one bad ass mutha'f*!

From the words of bluejem it transforms ur normal guitar signal into scalar waves therefore the tonal range is wide.

Kaya pala Scalarizer  :-)  although hindi ko pa din maintindihan in theory, pakabit na nga lang ako and hear the difference para maintindihan!

I'm no expert but this seems like an inaccurate technical description based on a philosophy which scalar/wave theory ahnd quantum physics took pains for several generations to debunk.  According to quantum physics/wave theory, the duality of matter and light in behaving as both particle and wave won't actually magically transform "guitar signal" into "scalar waves".  The concept of "guitar signal" sounds a lot like particle theory, as if it were composed of discrete particles, whilst "scalar waves" would make it sound more continuous, wave-like, and therefore musical (which is what it really is)  This is the difference in school of thoughts that separated the old and new schools of physics.  Reality didn't change, only our perception and understanding of it.  How BAMF has actually leveraged this knowledge of scalar/wave theory and made discoveries of his own is what intrigues me no end. 

BAMF - I upgrade my earlier motion for a FAQ/wiki to a 'white paper' instead on Scalarizers. Write it up sometime para ma-include ka sa next National Inventors Awards!  Maybe Oas will be involved as a peer reviewer. ;-)

San yan ? UP ? Uyyy ! Kargado between the ears !

Si Spraken Hayt . Syet yung lecheng yun. Electromagnetics. Haaay. Buti na lang night class ako nun, tamad na yung teacher magturo. Kaya yung mga exam namin, flux density na lang banda. Straight division lang ang operation ! Nge...OT.


Damn bakit kasi hindi ko binabasa si Hayt.  Basta maka tres lang sa EE 18 and EE 25.  Tapos yung vector algebra ko panis.  Kasi ang Math 55 na may 3-variable integration (rectangular and spherical) hindi pre-req kundi co-req ng EE 18.  NIyah!

Eh, dead giveaway itong course names na to eh...  ;-)

Speaking of Math...  I took Math 303 (I'm sure you know what that means).  The first one I dropped; the second one I failed (I thought I dropped it na pero didn't complete the process, didn't show up for classes, so ayun binagsak ako ng prof!  :x); the third one I passed w/ a 2.25 (IIRC).

Ang siste at malas ko, I attended all three courses with the Intarmed class at 7-830am twice a week!  Aaaarggghhh... twas hard to keep up w/ those geeks na nga tapos yung teacher ambilis magturo kasi buong class ang bilis matuto... except me!  Anyway, I got it on my 3rd try, and was allowed to proceed w/ my thesis (which I got a 1.0 on, btw ;-) )

Einstein kinda reconciled that particle/wave thing, as he showed in light particles. While Photons are defined as light particles, the individual photons have this group behaviour that allows them to take the shape of a wave. Now the dynamics of that group behaviour...I have the answer, but it might freak you out too much, so...in person na lang. Einstein himself observed and theorized the behaviour, although he had no explanation for it, or at least one that he could accept. But had he accepted what he thought he saw, he could have stumbled on the Unification theory in one fell swoop.

Ganun din sa electromagnetics. The guitar signal is a clump of travelling electrons (particle) that have a group behaviour that allows them to behave like a wave (e.g. sound waves).

While I truly truly am flatterred, I'm an Engineer and not a Scientific Theorist. I don't think I have the intellectual capacity to describe the actions involved in terms of fully detailed wave equations. :D . Besides, I think Tesla already did, so just better we look at his work and find practical applications for them. Scalarizer one of them :D

From the words of bluejem it transforms ur normal guitar signal into scalar waves therefore the tonal range is wide.

Kaya pala Scalarizer  :-)  although hindi ko pa din maintindihan in theory, pakabit na nga lang ako and hear the difference para maintindihan!

I'm no expert but this seems like an inaccurate technical description based on a philosophy which scalar/wave theory ahnd quantum physics took pains for several generations to debunk.  According to quantum physics/wave theory, the duality of matter and light in behaving as both particle and wave won't actually magically transform "guitar signal" into "scalar waves".  The concept of "guitar signal" sounds a lot like particle theory, as if it were composed of discrete particles, whilst "scalar waves" would make it sound more continuous, wave-like, and therefore musical (which is what it really is)  This is the difference in school of thoughts that separated the old and new schools of physics.  Reality didn't change, only our perception and understanding of it.  How BAMF has actually leveraged this knowledge of scalar/wave theory and made discoveries of his own is what intrigues me no end. 

BAMF - I upgrade my earlier motion for a FAQ/wiki to a 'white paper' instead on Scalarizers. Write it up sometime para ma-include ka sa next National Inventors Awards!  Maybe Oas will be involved as a peer reviewer. ;-)

Eto na lang papa joric. When electromagnetic waves cancel out (say north to south poles and + and - charges) ...where do they go ? They don't leave as heat energy (the common waste energy).

And according to the 2nd law of Thermodynamics, energy cannot be created nor destroyed. So where do these cancelled waves go ?

I also have an answer to that. It will freak you out to think about it, but when you do, you can see that energy (wave?)  and matter (particle?) are interchangeable. It's in the most famous physics equation of all time. E=mc squared.

I'd like to TRY to read them, since my idea of physicl theories basically came from Stephen Hawkings' "A Brief History of Time." :) I'd really like to understand how the scalarizer works just so I can sleep soundly at night. :)

Hey everyone,
Just wanted to share.

I've been thinking of buying new pups for my guitar for a long time na, but I didn't have enough money, or I saw something else I wanted to buy. But recently, my friend had his guitar scalarized and it sounded great!

For the price, I just had to try it out. I had my Washburn CT2Q scalarized last monday by sir BAMF and we compared the 'before' and 'after' with three different kinds of scalarizers, and we could really hear the difference.

I eventually chose the 'metal' scalarizer to be installed permanently on my guitar, and an added 'acoustic' scalarizer (hehe), which doesnt even need to be soldered.
It took out the muddiness of the neck pup and the harshness of the bridge pup. Instead of hearing that sharp sound when you strum, it turned into a smooth 'quack', hehe, an LP that quacks. The sound became richer (for me) and fuller, and there was added sustain.

He showed me his prototype 'acoustic' scalarizer, and I liked it so much so i convinced him to sell it to me narin, hehe. I have both installed in my guitar right now, and I love how it sounds!

I dont have to buy new pups, in which a pair would cost around 7k+. The mod's very affordable, and actually I think is more than worth it. I'm very happy with the scalarizer, it made my guitar from a "good sounding guitar, to a great sounding axe!"
Thanks sir BAMF! I might drop by your shop again soon, hehe.

After he installed the scalarizer, I noticed that the notes sound much much clearer! Clean tone and slight overdrive sounds ung napakinggan ko sa shop niya using his Fender amp so I said to myself "I need to go home... must try the guitar using Hi-gain... must go home... need my Digitech XMM and a marshall to slay!!!

Umuwi agad ako (excited to use my guitar using insane gain settings), excited sobra to try it at home using my rig. I used my Digitech Metal Master and a Boss GE-7 through a marshall valvestate 8080. Hindi muna ako gumamit ng modulation. When I started playing riffs even using the low-B, DAMN! ang linaw ng tunog! hindi muddy ung mga low notes. When u play solos! It really shines! clarity to the highest level! Sweep arpeggios sound soooooooooooooooo sweet using the neck pickup! YUM YUM!!! Kelangan ng practice para hindi na sumabit! heheheheh  :-D

Hindi ko tlaga maexplain! Ganda sobra!

Of the pickups that I've installed scalarizers on, two of them I distinctly remember as making me soil my pants, after scalarization.

They are the Antiquity pickups of Jaime on his LP, and the EMG pickups of Phoenix Rising, also on his LP.

Maybe I'm really an LP guy and not a Strat or Tele guy, but Mico's guitar makes me wanna buy a couple of EMG's myself.

Eyy Dodjie !

Yep, Thursdays are better. I have the entire afternoon to play in my shop din.

Jun_gats,

Sina Elegee naman ang pupunta sa BAMFx on the next meeting, although it escapes me right now kung sa Saturday tone orgy nga yun. At any rate, I left two sample scalarizers (one crystal, one metal) with Jon for his further evaluation. With a strict condition to never install one on you-know-who's guitars.  Jon wants no part in my quarrel, but he did say he will abide by my request. You can check them out there when you swing by his place.

@ BAMF - Ako din my sked problems tom, Sat. 6-8pm Firebottle rehearsal. 8pm up naman Soul Beners mtg and rehearsal.  If we don't finish too late, I might still manage to drop by.

But, Jobet, i hope Anton texted you kanina re other possible reviewers of scalarizer.  PM me bro.

Surely Al ! The shop is very near Araneta. When on QA facing quiapo, take araneta and go into the first u-turn slot. Don't take the U-turn, but instead go into the road that tumboks it. On the second corner from araneta, turn right and drive slowly till you see on your right a house with painted walls reading something like "Migun". The house across it, along Calamba street is the BAMFx Hive :D Enter Calamba and beep your horn at the white and green rail gates (or wait for the dogs to bark) and someone will open the gate for you :D .

I gotta hand it to you Al. I should have listened to you a loooonnnnnggg time ago.

Jobet,

Baka you can come tonight ! I'm almost desperate that your guitars *should* be scalarized, I'll even do you a house call and install them at your place ! Naks ! That's how a big fan I am (but yeah, seriously).

While Anton is most certainly a Guitar-God-In-A-Closet (Guitar Closet Queen ? Nyahahaha...no sexual preferences implied), you reattached me to my musical roots and made me wanna play the Blues again. :D :D :D . It's like...Anton blows me... away with his Fusion, but with the Blues...I feel my very soul...crying.

I had my RG7321 with stock pickups scalarized yesterday! I told BAMF that I want the metal core scalarizer installed. After he installed the scalarizer, I noticed that the notes sound much much clearer! Clean tone and slight overdrive sounds ung napakinggan ko sa shop niya using his Fender amp so I said to myself "I need to go home... must try the guitar using Hi-gain... must go home... need my Digitech XMM and a marshall to slay!!!

Umuwi agad ako (excited to use my guitar using insane gain settings), excited sobra to try it at home using my rig. I used my Digitech Metal Master and a Boss GE-7 through a marshall valvestate 8080. Hindi muna ako gumamit ng modulation. When I started playing riffs even using the low-B, DAMN! ang linaw ng tunog! hindi muddy ung mga low notes. When u play solos! It really shines! clarity to the highest level! Sweep arpeggios sound soooooooooooooooo sweet using the neck pickup! YUM YUM!!! Kelangan ng practice para hindi na sumabit! heheheheh  :-D

Hindi ko tlaga maexplain! Ganda sobra!

To sum up everything, AS OF THE MOMENT I NO LONGER HAVE PLANS TO REPLACE THE PICK-UPS ON MY 7 STRING!  :-D

BAMF gawa ka ng scalarizers na aside from doing their thingy. ngpapalakas pa ng output ng pickups! hehehehe para no need na tlga magpalit ng pickups ung mga tao! especially ung mga metal players heheheheh  :-D


Pero what more if you get new pickups as well, ever wonder what it would sound like? :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Oh my! probably tonal wet dreams!!! heheheheheh DAMN! kelan b mgkakastock ng duncan distortion 7 at jazz 7 sa audiophile?! heheheheh  :-D

I'll bring my 6 string RG equipped with Mr. Scary's pickup in the bridge position next time! I wonder how will it sound like after the scalarizer is installed! hmmmm...

Uy, screamin demon pickup, i used to have that pickup, ganda ng tunog, old school tone but it really bites, what more pa pag na scalarized? patay tayo dyan!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

yup! screamin demon sa bridge. sa Rg321 ko sya nilagay! mahogany body pero ayos na ayos rin! i'll have this baby scalarized soon! isa isa muna, matagal ko napabayaan ung 7 string ko eh! sya muna lalaruin ko, kse baka kapag scalarized na rin ung RG321, baka hindi ko mapigilan sarili ko at gamitin ko sila ng sabay! using both hands legato! heheheheh

A hysterically funny evening. Picture this:

• A gaggle of musicians who could barely squeeze onto stage -- naka side-view na para hindi mag banggaan sa dami ng gitarista. Dyanibee the bass player and whitey the harp player are sitting in chairs off stage so everyone will fit.
• A rotating lineup of jammers one after the other.
• A gaggle of musicians with beers sitting around tables talking about a small pile of wired tootsie rolls.
• Off to the side, a makeshift soldering station set up to wire the tootsie rolls into guitars.

Cross reference to this thread: http://talk.philmusic.com/board/index.php?topic=34134.msg351787#msg351787

Some preliminary findings:

• Scalarized guitars do cut through the mix in a full band (or full-er band) setting.
• veggie joe's scalarized strat with 9's compares very favorably with a stock EJ strat strung with 11's. Fatness, detail, punch, cut, and clarity all there.
• Seems like the tootsie roll works for p90 equipped axes. A PRS SE with the scalarizer sounded great.
• psychic_sushi is a hot guitar player.
• BAMF is a gracious and generous dude, not to mention a really nice guy to boot.
• Remarkable what "tone spite" can acccomplish.  :lol:
• Judging from the folks at the gig, the blues is alive and well in the Philippines.
• Judging from the folks at the gig, there are other geeks like us in the Philippines.  :-D

Exactly what the tootsie roll does for guitar tone still has to be articulated. Will try to do some kind of a review after monkeying around a little bit more with other guitars. At the outset, it's encouraging.

Wish you all the luck in the world and more importantly success in your endeavor...

Looking forward to trying it out...  Heh Heh :) 

Just have to ready some stuff and some preparations I have done to really test it out:
1. Pulled out my BBE stinger out of my closet.  Lininis ko dahil sabi ng iba parang sonic maximizer.
2. Set up batteries of my Legendary Tones George Lynch Time machine boost.  Sabi kasi ng iba may clarity na dag dag sa treble -- so I have to use a treble boost function.
3. Set up my Les Paul.  Sabi rin ng iba kasi nagdagdag ng twang sa Les Paul.  Hihiram rin pala ako ng twangy na Tele.
4. Checked my Herbert kasi sabi rin ng iba na may 3d soundstage.
5. Tested the volume pots on my Super Lead Kasi sabi ng iba at any volume raw maganda.  For cranking sa 10.
6. Checked the Vox AC30 brilliant low gain Channel because again sabi ng iba may chime na dagdag.
7. Readied the Bogner Uberschall kasi may METAL version ka raw ng scalarizer.
8. Pinapalit ko na and Estring ng Moon ko na naka titanium saddles dahil wala sa intonation kasi claim niyo it beats titanium and this is my guitar with the least amount of titanium.
9. Also put back my Van den Hul cable versus my really dead sounding Klotz La Grange. I am hoping that the scalarizer put back some life in this so that I don't have to buy another Van den Hul.
10. Naka standby na rin ang soldering iron and solder.  Also on standy ang hammer ko to smash it if sounds that bad. 

Yup I know its only 500 bucks -- it costs more effort to really test this thing out.

P.S. Balita ko mayroon na nagtatanggalan --  Sa mga nagtatanggalan, dapat babad muna ng mga three months at least to give a fair assessment unless its that bad sounding.

Woo ! The guy who went running  on the appointed day of the shootout calls me chicken ! Hahehehe. How funny.

We're still waiting Max !

But I guess you didn't get what I mean. Buy a scalarizer at any price, and from anyone and you will have given me a blowjob. To spell it out,  you are not worthy of the benefits of the scalarizer. It was made only for musicians and not for bragheads.

And at this point, we already know what your review will contain because...hey...you've got too much to lose. Titanium trem block ? 10 seconds sustain ? Heck...my RJ PRS hit a sustain of more than 1 minute tonight. Ask Carabao ! 

"Real musicians" gave their reviews. People I just met because they were open-minded enough to try it and left the shop smiling wide. And that is a proud feeling for me that all your money cannot buy.

Shoot it out with someone who's got it on his guitar. I'm sure even Jim the Man will be happy to referee. But the moment you buy it, 2nd hand or whatever, you will have given me the grandest blowjob of my stay here in Philmusic. Go ahead ! Do it !  :-D :-D :-D :evil: :evil:

HARDOGEI!!! Ayuda !!! Don't just buy one...come get some !!!

BAMF,

Pa-dala mo na lang kay Deltaslim... Will give him payment. 

You mean via Arie or Lito?  Eh sana pala kumuha ako ng stock kay BAMF nung Fri dahil nag-rehearsal kami ni Arie kagabi.  He texted me a few hours before asking if I had a scalarized gtr (Lito asked a few days before too); he's interested to audition it. Kaso short notice... Sayang, could have handed it to Arie, Lito, or even Steve.


@BAMF - We finished rehearsal almost midnight na kagabi; di ko na kaya dumaan kasi (as you know) puyat na tayo from the previous night.

Although, my own guitars have not been scalarized yet, here's a mini-review based on scalarized guitars whose stock tones I remember well and heard the other night:  Jaime's Strat and BB's PRS SE w/ P90s.

The scalarizer added dynamic range and seems to fill out the minute 'gaps' in the freq range of the gtr/pu. In a single coil, P90, or scatterwound PAF-type pu like the Burny VH1, this is what contributes to the character and perceived microphonics of the pu -- which is what makes it distinct from every other pickup.  By 'filling in the gaps' the scalarizer made the sound fuller (phat) without actually pushing the freqs up!  I'm amazed how it did it that!  But at the same time, you might miss those little quirks of your pu, as well as some mid-bite.  To my ears, the Strat sounded less like the classic Strat tone that I remembered it to be. Partida nga, naka 9s yung Strat pero sounded like 11s, which might be a good thing since you can play efortlessly w/ 9s but sounded phat like on 11s!  For cutting through the mix, it's a boon.  With the PRS SE, same observations pero what's encouraging is that it generally didn't change the P90 tone that much, which was my main worry!  Enhanced pa ang dyanmic range but again there might be times you wanna go back to the quirkier, rawer, naked tone and P90. So there... that's my generally unscientific review.  I hope to do a more thorough and detailed test when I'm down at PIMP.

Having said that, I suggest people seriously consider adding a switch option, an idea I heard from both vjoe and microchimp.  Like any modification, the pre-scalarized and scalarized tones are two different tones, not a GOOD vs BAD tone dichotomy.  There would be some times or applications that you'd like the scalarized effect, and sometimes not.  One is not necessarily better than the other, just different.  Magkakatalo na lang talaga sa taste, mood, or application mo.  So pag may nagsasabing gusto nila tanggalin ang scalarizer, they mainly want to get back the tone they used to remember.  Pero pano na when they want the scalarizer effect ulit for certain applications?  Tama yung switch idea nila vjoe and microchimp for people who want the best of both worlds. 

Just my 2 humble cents.

What a perfect, perfect night. Got to meet the Blue Rats in person. Scalarized Blue Buddha's guitar on the spot and hear it in action. It wasn't loud-set, but it surely CUT right into the mix !

Haayyyy...too tired...even perfect nights and days can bring a very happy tiredness. Sheet...I'm falling asleep on my keyboopiasdufopisjsdljf;lskdfj-09UR.90U0ISDJFSJC[V904UR904JFSODFJVO;LXJVLJLVJL;KXJVXLKVJLKJX SFSDFASF

A hysterically funny evening. Picture this:

• A gaggle of musicians who could barely squeeze onto stage -- naka side-view na para hindi mag banggaan sa dami ng gitarista. Dyanibee the bass player and whitey the harp player are sitting in chairs off stage so everyone will fit.
• A rotating lineup of jammers one after the other.
• A gaggle of musicians with beers sitting around tables talking about a small pile of wired tootsie rolls.
• Off to the side, a makeshift soldering station set up to wire the tootsie rolls into guitars.

Cross reference to this thread: http://talk.philmusic.com/board/index.php?topic=34134.msg351787#msg351787

Some preliminary findings:

• Scalarized guitars do cut through the mix in a full band (or full-er band) setting.
• veggie joe's scalarized strat with 9's compares very favorably with a stock EJ strat strung with 11's. Fatness, detail, punch, cut, and clarity all there.
• Seems like the tootsie roll works for p90 equipped axes. A PRS SE with the scalarizer sounded great.
• psychic_sushi is a hot guitar player.
• BAMF is a gracious and generous dude, not to mention a really nice guy to boot.
• Remarkable what "tone spite" can acccomplish.  :lol:
• Judging from the folks at the gig, the blues is alive and well in the Philippines.
• Judging from the folks at the gig, there are other geeks like us in the Philippines.  :-D

Exactly what the tootsie roll does for guitar tone still has to be articulated. Will try to do some kind of a review after monkeying around a little bit more with other guitars. At the outset, it's encouraging.

Hi!

Oh man, that was one helluva memorable night! Thank you (blue buddha, i will never run out of "thank you's" for you and yatpu, and the whole band!!!) for letting me join the stage with you guys. I had butterflies in my stomach, was overwhealmed at being in the presence of the guitarist i look up to, but disarmed by his chumminess. boy, i can't wait til the next opportunity! yatpu rules!!! you guys are awesome!!!  :-)

It was a night of fantastic music.

Wish you all the luck in the world and more importantly success in your endeavor...

Looking forward to trying it out...  Heh Heh :) 

Just have to ready some stuff and some preparations I have done to really test it out:
1. Pulled out my BBE stinger out of my closet.  Lininis ko dahil sabi ng iba parang sonic maximizer.
2. Set up batteries of my Legendary Tones George Lynch Time machine boost.  Sabi kasi ng iba may clarity na dag dag sa treble -- so I have to use a treble boost function.
3. Set up my Les Paul.  Sabi rin ng iba kasi nagdagdag ng twang sa Les Paul.  Hihiram rin pala ako ng twangy na Tele.
4. Checked my Herbert kasi sabi rin ng iba na may 3d soundstage.
5. Tested the volume pots on my Super Lead Kasi sabi ng iba at any volume raw maganda.  For cranking sa 10.
6. Checked the Vox AC30 brilliant low gain Channel because again sabi ng iba may chime na dagdag.
7. Readied the Bogner Uberschall kasi may METAL version ka raw ng scalarizer.
8. Pinapalit ko na and Estring ng Moon ko na naka titanium saddles dahil wala sa intonation kasi claim niyo it beats titanium and this is my guitar with the least amount of titanium.
9. Also put back my Van den Hul cable versus my really dead sounding Klotz La Grange. I am hoping that the scalarizer put back some life in this so that I don't have to buy another Van den Hul.
10. Naka standby na rin ang soldering iron and solder.  Also on standy ang hammer ko to smash it if sounds that bad. 

Yup I know its only 500 bucks -- it costs more effort to really test this thing out.

P.S. Balita ko mayroon na nagtatanggalan --  Sa mga nagtatanggalan, dapat babad muna ng mga three months at least to give a fair assessment unless its that bad sounding. 


Thank you for the words of encouragement.

but, how are you gonna test it?

you've enumerated the gear you will employ for whatever intention you have, and are preparing for it.

Alex  -  Like you always say, no one is never really in a position to assess unless he himself has tried it out (I think you said 3 mos at least?).  These guys have gone out of their way to give you that opportunity. Least you can do is honor the challenge and acknowledge their effort.  Try it, you might like it!  :-)

Used my strat at a freedom gig with Kulukati last night. It's been a while since i've really enjoyed how i sounded! the guitar cut through everything without sounding harsh and was very very inspiring. the notes just hit you, hindi lang naririnig...basta hirap eksplika. it seems to move a bit more air. and the overall tone seemed to dance around valve's 12-string bass a lot better! anyone who's heard that wonderful monster knows it's hard to compete for sonic territory. for the first time i think my strat held it's own.  :-D

sumamapa din ako sa Lahi and went toe-to-toe with a great-sounding greco LP again. i wasn't left wanting! sumabay yung gitara pero distinctly single-coil pa din yung flavor. their music is crazy thick but the strat held its own. very nice.  8-)

excited na ako marinig yung 4x10 ng pimpboyz!!!

had a similar but opposite experience last night too. played through this crate gtx (i think) and its got to be one of the worst amps ever. or it might've been just that one unit i played through. a bad amp crappyfies anything you throw at it i guess.

Pa-sensiya na mga bossing.  Sa dami kasi ng mga descriptors, I have to do AB via process of elimination.  I could just compare my guitar's sound before and after but if it sounds worse, I cannot stop there kasi naman baka may ibang application na maganda even if it degrades the sound of my guitar. 

BAMF,

Pa-dala mo na lang kay Deltaslim... Will give him payment. 

You mean via Arie or Lito?  Eh sana pala kumuha ako ng stock kay BAMF nung Fri dahil nag-rehearsal kami ni Arie kagabi.  He texted me a few hours before asking if I had a scalarized gtr (Lito asked a few days before too); he's interested to audition it. Kaso short notice... Sayang, could have handed it to Arie, Lito, or even Steve.


@BAMF - We finished rehearsal almost midnight na kagabi; di ko na kaya dumaan kasi (as you know) puyat na tayo from the previous night.

Having said that, I suggest people seriously consider adding a switch option, an idea I heard from both vjoe and microchimp.  Like any modification, the pre-scalarized and scalarized tones are two different tones, not a GOOD vs BAD tone dichotomy. There would be some times or applications that you'd like the scalarized effect, and sometimes not.  One is not necessarily better than the other, just different.  Magkakatalo na lang talaga sa taste, mood, or application mo.  So pag may nagsasabing gusto nila tanggalin ang scalarizer, they mainly want to get back the tone they used to remember.  Pero pano na when they want the scalarizer effect ulit for certain applications?  Tama yung switch idea nila vjoe and microchimp for people who want the best of both worlds. 

Just my 2 humble cents.

Agree. Kinda missed the gnarl in my neck pickup when I got the crystal. The harsh quality of the hot birdge pickup though, was totally gone. Not a big deal though - I just have to find time to wire the crystal to the bridge pu only. :)

BAMF,why don't you come up with an external box na lang with two holes for the scalarizers to touch the guitar's body (since the effect is maximized when there's contact with the body wood)? Then I suggest you have four settings: Stock, Crystal, Metal, and Crystal Met. Personally, I don't mind attaching it to the body of the guitar using double-sided tape. :)

i just got my gibson lp studio scalarized last night at anton's place. we first installed the crystal, then the metal, then i opted, at last, for crystal. sobrang panalo to mga chong. magpascalarize na kayo! hehehhe!! :) elmo, anton and jobet was there. wala nang ibang dumating! i was expecting to see more people pa naman last night. anyway.. it was just fun to talk to these guys about music and stuff, they know their stuff. the 3 even gave me advice and free guitar lessons habang inooperahan ang gitara ko. hehehe. salamat sobra! magprapractice na po ako! :D

back to scalarizers...

at first, my guitar had superb tone already.. ok na ok naman na. anton told me to remember the stock tone, so that i could compare the stock and scalarized tone. first off, elmo installed a crystal core scalarizer. he tested the guitar first.. then me.. putcha. napamura ako. HAHAAHHAHA. as in minura ko si jobet at elmo nun! hahaha. kasi ba naman, una, nausog ang artificial harmonics spots ko after my guitar's recent setup.. nung nagscalarizer na, putcha, bumalik lahat. hahaahaha. grabe. hindi ako makapaniwala. the notes became more distinguished. the neck pick up's unwanted mud was gone. the bridge pup tone became more alive. lemme put it this way.. the scalarizer's effect is on how the notes blend and jive together. hindi saggy. just right. parang gnun. basta. have one installed na lang. hahahaaha. EEZ LIKE LOVE, Y'KNOW. hahahaa. anyway...we chatted and jammed for another hour or so before we tried out the metal core scalarizer. jobet at first recommended this.. may mid boost sya at ok daw talga for heavier music. after its installation, i tried it out right away. again, it has the same effects as the crystal core, but had become quackier (mid boost).. kumbaga, malutong. hehe. pero, based on my tonal preferences, mas gusto ko ata ang mas traditional na tunog. mas pang clean kasi yung crytal core. ok na ok pareho, depende yan sa hinahanap ng mga tenga nyo. ayun... we installed the crystal core back.. i tested it for a few minutes, then ok na ok na. another satisfied customer here. nakalibre pa akong ilang yosi. nakakahiya hindi ako nakadala. hahahaa :)

after that, sabay sabay na kami nila elmo at jobet umuwi.. nag mr kebab kami ni elmo, then uwi na rin. i dropped him off at his house. salamat pare sa mga kwento! hehehe! jam na tayo next time! alam ko na kung san kita pupuntahan! at slamat sa pabaong yosi. hahaha :)

this morning, i took a look at how the scalarizer is installed. simple lang pala. magegets nyo naman agad. nagulat ako bakit parang walang change sa tone nung sa bridge at neck pickup.. natakot ako. hahhaa. so i resoldered everything.. stock muna.. then wala pa ring change sa neck at bridge pup, at bumalik ang mudd! kinabit ko ulit yung scalarizer. habang kinakabit ko, nakita ko hindi in contact yung isang metal part ng switch ko dun sa mismong body (nakakabit lang naman ng lead, so i resoldered it, kumabit naman, at lumutong ulit yung switch). ayun. nung pag test ko, putcha. PANALO TALAGA YUNG SCALARIZER NA YAN! buhay na buhay ang bridge at neck. pati ang tone controls! nako. dati subtle lang ang change from 10-0, ngyon, maririnig mo tlga ang minor change! panalo sobra! :) anyway.. yung sira na sinabi ko, sa switch ko mismo, hindi sa scalarizer, so don't worry. walang lokohan kila bamf.

at eto pa.. hahhaaha. tinawag kami ni jobet kagabi sa studio.. gamit nya ang rj prs copy nya.. dalawang scalarizers.. hahaha.. eto.. ang sustain ng open E string sa damped studio room (plugged kami sa fender stage 112) ay 1:06 bago mag die out. ganun kalakas. i timed my gibson lp studio.. crystal core lang a... kagabi 40 seconds. kaninang umaga, 1:06 din amazingly. hahahaaha. panalo :) SO.. GO GO GO! pa-opera nyo na gitara nyo mga chong :) bait pa dun! great and fruitful conversations :) ayos ang company :)

more power to BAMFX!

My AsiaPac distributor and I have arrived at an agreement in principle, as the Scalarizer has passed their evaluation tests with flying colors.

The local distributor will follow soon. Saka na ang America, Europe and Australia and elsewhere muna.

But as you know, we will have to factor in many more costs while protecting distributors. I guess you'll know what that means.

So get your scalarizers...like now, before things change.

As a hint, the SRP of the scalarizer is USD$40.

BAMF.. you really did a GREAT job on the scalarizer.. how was the pizza? hindi mo na ako nabalitaan hehehhee...
anyway, at first i was very very dubious on how such a small piece of molded material will affect a guitar sound..anyway, siguro me atmospheric changes ( altitude related )sa ear ko saka me sipon ako at that time kaya hindi ko kaagad narinig yung difference. but let me tell you something, when i played the guitar ( which was a cheap one) narinig ko nga ang difference sa 1. clarity nung notes
2. imagery ng sound.. lalong lalo na kapag nag pick ka ng hard..mas accentuated yung notes at hindi nagiging muddy.
the best part was when kitC placed a scalarizer on a snare and a cymbal.. :? :? :? :?.. i was like WHAT THE???? how can that work without any electrical source..
BAMF.. you really deserve a NOBEL PRIZE hehehhe..

Absolutely perfect on actives. Brings out the "wood" and "warmth". But for actives, I highly recommend getting them dual-scalarized, the crystalmet mod, its takes double the dosage, heheheh. I did a review of it in this thread, please sift though for more info on my findings. One scalarizer may make your actives sound close to an acoustic guitar.

Hindi ba mahal un. A friend of mine here in New Orleans is also an inventor...Andame na nyang gawa kaso hindi nya mapa patent kasi sobra mahal. Mayroon syang nagawa dati dalawa un, kaso employee sya ng Cingular. Ayun nalaman ng lawyers ng company, inangkin ung work nya although makikita mo pa rin ung name sa invention na un. Kasi related sa telecom ung gawa nya...Kaya payo nya kung may similar gawa daw ako, make sure na I'm not working as a regular or contractual employee for a telecom company, otherwise kukunin nila un. Shet! :x

..Ang mura daw ung local patent, pero pag international...mahal. Kaya ayun nagbubuo sila ng company w/ friends para magka funds...At makapag resign dito. Ehehehe! :-D

Yung sonic maximizer, me baterya or saksakan (depende kung anong generation ang inabutan mo), me controls at hindi kasya sa loob ng gitara :D

Yung Scalarizer, wala lahat nun at kasya sa loob ng gitara.

Pero pareho ang description nila. The insertion of harmonically-related overtones.

Hi guys.

Does anyone know where I can buy a on-on-on mini-toggle switch? Anyone been to DEECO lately? Wala kasi sa Alexan iyang hinahanap ko.

I've been trying to rig up a switchable crystal-stock-metal configuration that I can use to test my guitars, pero I can't find the rght switch. on-off-on won't do, kasi I still wanna hear the stock tone for base comparison.

Alam ko pwede ang on-on switch, but i would prefer all 3 options available, para mas madali mag-test.

Thanks in advance for any info.


BAMF,

scalarizable na rin ba ang ss amps. I have a Yamaha JX-25 which no one seems to be interested in buying, so I thought baka pwede ko i-project...
Title: Re: Scalarizer Thread
Post by: oloc on February 06, 2007, 09:01:48 AM
Kung test lang sir, not permanent fixture sa guitar, baka pwede 2 toggle switches.. 1 on-off-on tapos 1 on-off switch.

dun sa "off position" nung 1st(on-off-on) switch, you can turn ON the 2nd (on-off) para 3 connections yung ma test mo instantly.

Thanks for the response oloc. Yup naisip ko din yan and ok nga for testing. Pwede rin ata dalawang on-on na naka-series. I may end up doing that pag di ako makakita ng 1 switch setup. Nabutasan ko na yung pickguard ko for just 1 sw. Ayoko na sanang dagdagan ng butas!

Bos Jaime,

I'm interested in buying your JX25. My nephews blew up Anton's J25, and walang stock ng parts. I'm thinking of replacing it na lang.

But yeah, amps can be scalarized. My Marshall G15R, Crate V508 and Fender Stage 112SE have all been scalarized and sushified. The effect is different though for amps and guitars. Just check them out na lang next time you're in the shop.

It might be the one with center-on option which is similar to a LP's 3-way toggle switch, which isn't what is needed (at least for my case lang). baka sayang naman kung isang pack pa ang bilhin mo. Maybe I should go to DEECO and bring a tester; panigurado.

Mukhang dalawang on-on switch in series ang tamang config dito sa gusto ko. That way I get 4 options:  stock; crystal; metal; and crystal+metal. pangit nga lang tignan 2 switch... Thanks!

Jobet,

you're welcome to check it out of course. Pero the JX-25 is smaller than the J-25. 10" speaker lang and nowhere as loud as Anton's. Talagang pang practice lang.
Title: Re: Scalarizer Thread
Post by: BAMF on February 06, 2007, 09:40:07 AM
10" lang speaker ng J25.

Surprisingly, pag na-scalarize ang amp, it gets louder. Like the Stage, we can't get past "1" on the dial without busting our eardrums. Sa Overdrive channel yun.

Nga lang, nung na-triple sushify (3 pala clip stages ng Fender Stage) , medyo sumwabe masyado ang tunog to my ears. Nawala yung talas. A little edge is good. Can get the edge only when the gain knob is dimed.

Major change na din considering that I truly hated the overdrive channel on it. Ngayon oke na oke na. Masyado lang malambing.

Ewan ko...louder as in louder, as if another gain stage was added to it.

Dati-dati we can get up to 2 or 3 on my amp before we give out. Now, sa "1" pa lang di na namin kaya.

I'm not sure if the Tesla negative resistance is kicking in (na-chambahan ko yung effect na yun ??) or its the presence of new frequencies that makes it "apparently" louder.

Maybe I need an SPL meter to be really objective about the loudness factor.

Yung RJ PRS ko...selectable scalarizer yun. Crystal-metal-crystalmet

sir BAMF, nasubukan niyo na ba yung scalarizer selector? hehe.. para pwedeng switch between crystal and metal and pwede both.. o kung meron pang ibang scalars diyan sa mga niluluto mo.. hahaha..  :-D :mrgreen: :-D

Bos Jaime, I have the solution !

A pull-pot switch can disable the scalarizers ! That way, no need for another hole ! Or, we disable one of the tone knobs and install a click-on pot kung medyo mahal ang pull-pot !

Hi Jobet.

wow, wag mo naman ako tawaging bos; matanda lang ako but just one of the guys!

binutasan ko na yung pickguard ko eh. So I have to make that scalarizer with toggle switch work!  :oops:

I only have one tone control w/c is a tbx; the other knob is a blend pot... kaya wala na ako ma-give up, unless I buy a push-pull pot (currently out-of-stock) to replace the vol. pot.

Atat na atat na talaga ako pa scalarize js schindler strat guitar ko kaso dito pa ako Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat Mindanao and I can't wait anymore for me to go there to bring my guitar. Ok lang ba if I send my brother to purchase a scalarizer from you and also give him an instruction manual on how to install it on the guitar? What do you think is best (Crystal or metal)?

Really really excited for it to do wonders on my mediocre sounding guitar.

Salamat po. Mabuhay ka.

Another question... Please answer BAMF.  Does the scalarizer have anything to do with mutual inductance?  As in, pickups have inductance, so does the pickups' inductances have an effect on the scalarizer?  Or is the scalarizer a complete passive signal filter?

about my projects, i might put them on my blog nalang para medyo may detalye. pag may time, at sinipag.. bakasyon mode na kasi ako these days  :-)

ilang tulog nalang, scalizer experience na. i hope the cue line is not too long pagdating ko sa BAMFx Shop.

Mga sir, sa mga nakatry na po ng scalarizer. I'm thinking of getting one myself. I'm playing rythmn guitars sa band namin, we play different kind of music alternative, pop rock, hard rock and post grunge. I'm using a Fender strat 62 customed. 2 single coil and 1 humbucker at the bridge. I also use boston od-100 and ds100 saka ZOOM G1 for cleans, modulation, delay and ampsim. Based on the music I play and the effects I have what version of the scalarizer would be good for me? I also do play solo's sometimes and I also play blues. I don't know kasi what version should I get and I'm too far down south (Zamboanga City) to go to BAMF shop to test both. heehhehe. hope you guys cud advice me. Thanks alot in advance.

I'd go for metal with your set up.

but since the thread has grown huge, here's what to expect:

crystal: sparkle and clarity

metal: still clear and sparkly, but with a mid hump.

crystal: sparkle and clarity
metal: still clear and sparkly, but with a mid hump.

agree with master sushi here. can i add some also?

i was the last person to be scalarized yesterday :D. in hearing the two scalarizers. i tested my SZ on both. and these were my observation as my ear dictates on a clean tone (and may i add these adjectives on the scalarizer dictionary)

crystal - glassy tone
metal - woody tone

my verdict - metal on my SZ not because im a into heavy stuff but i prefer more wood tone on my guitar. plugging it into my own amp and playing it all over clean, we'll i can say, labas na labas yung tunog kahoy. to my ears, my ibby SZ somewhat dials to LP territory. on the dirty sound, wow! sweet wood tone plus enhanced sustain, balanced sound, and of course pleasing to my ears.

plus a bonus... there is a subtle chorus if you would listen to the sound more closely. in short very pleasing when you hear it.

i must say - this very fugly device in appearance will make your guitar sound good looking. looks can be deceptive but the tone leap is limitless.

thanks BAMF for your great contribution! isunod ko yung strat ko mamaya if time permits. nasira ko ata yung mga
projection mo on thick bodied guitars (HAHAHAHA!!!!) at pinuyat mo kami ng gitara ko. nagbonding kami (HAHAHA!!!)

and tried some funky riffs (and Laruku riffs as well)...

sa metalcore mode, nandun yung twang ng Tele,
pero nung crystal mode... freak, nakukuha ko yung twang ng Strat -- yung parang may quack! O_________O

evident lalo nung sina-slide ko yung strings... chaka palm muted. grabe, parang 2 set of pickups talaga!

it really doesn't matter whether you are a joe strummer or a jazz hyperluminary. if you want your guitar to sound better, this is the way to go.

good tone inspires you. inspires you to listen with clearer ears, inspires you to play better and want to be better.

and more importantly, to make good music. it's all about music buddy  :wink:

i think most guitarists fear putting "additives" in their guitars. hence, the preference for passive pick ups over actives by the majority. same with the aversion of putting a battery powered circuit inside! que horror!

but, the scalarizer being soooo unintrusive and so affordable, its accessible to everybody. except to the closed minded snoots.  hard for those folks to accept.

i like to think about it as the next evolutionary step. evolve or die, as the saying goes.

most firebrands do get bashed on the onset, like the thought of the solidbody guitar in the 50's. but things are accelerating...

BAMFx Mods? In the South? How?  :lol: :lol:


I really want to hear that Bakemono in action. :-D

now, that's a tough question! maybe if micsis decides to have a ds1 modded, then the bakemono will be heard there  :wink:

or, since my mom goes to san pedro periodically, you can drop the pedal off at our house/store there (with a loveletter and payment concealed inside) and i can beg for her (as the good son i am) to take it back to QC.

you won't even have to testdrive the bakemono before the mod. you'll NEVER revert to the stock ds1 ever ever again!!!  :-D

Ey guys, have you thought of putting all of the mods (scalarizer, Bakemono, sushi, etc.) in a website (aside form the forums of Philmusic  :lol:) for all to see (and hear) ?  Kahit Wikipedia entry lang pde na siguro!

Gustong gusto ko na kasi makita (at marinig!) tong mga to and so far the scalarizer pa lang ang nakikita ko kaso bad trip sobra busy at may kalayuan yung shop.

but, it would be best to give it a shot. if you don't like the end results, we can rip it out. you can ask vegetablejoe about his findings on his scalarized greco LP.

its not too metal sounding, it has that midrange hump that everyone wants minus the shart treble sound...  its good for the genre you prefer.

stratboy talkin' les paul  :wink:

parking is more than adequate. my dad had a tree destroyed to accommodate vehicles in the courtyard. it'll fit a cessna or two  :wink:

here's another look at the two models:

crystal- vintage
metal- modern

although the "metal" name may imply "heavy metal", it is not all that can do. metal will add sparkle and clarity to your lp, and a sweet midrange. but (a huge BUT) the best way to know which is suited to your guitar is to try them. scalarizers like to choose the guitars themselves  :wink:

eg: i suggested to a customer who walked in with an old yamaha super rock n roller strat a metal scalarizer, as his guitar had a maple neck and ash body, parts equating (using conventional logic) that crystal may make it too bright.

we tried both.

and much to everybody's surprise, the crystal totally jived with it! weird, but, the scalarizer does not follow "conventional" logic, thus, the crack in the egg. he came home pleased, and i'm sure slet tight at night.

he scalarizer is a funny creature.

when it comes to basses im much of a funk bass fan ..more on slapping and at times bass soloing ala victor wooten( mangarap ba...)

i tried Tinnie's Tokai Jazz Bass and got the surprise of my life when  we had it equipped with a metal core. I'm very meticulous when it comes to the bass sound...it has to have enough sparkle and midrange punch for me to consider it as a good bass, and deacon_blues'  low note machine blew me away with its magnanimous sound. its was pefect for funk and jazz and actually everything in between...what made it more attractive in terms of tone was the power punch..the thump was powerful enough to knock u off ur feet. up to now i still want to have a bass that sounds like that...so far tinnie's bass passed my standards with flying colors...and a summa cum laude distinction for that matter.

question: will it make my greco lp sound like a 59? (wishful thinking)

Okay okay, stop there. The scalarizer is good, but it's not God. ;)

Just to give you an idea. I have a 335 copy with a crystal version of the unit and for some strange reason, I hear more of the wood in my guitar. Somehow the pickup-wood level ratio got balanced. If you're into that type of sound, then by all means try out a scalarizer unit of your choice. And like I always say, if you don't like it, it's just as easy to take it out. Simple. :)

gusto ko magpalagay pero nahihiya ako kasi hindi ako mashado magaling, nakakahiya pag nagpalagay pa ako eh bano naman ako :|

dude, this isn't even an issue.   :-) what's important is everyone will have a chance to have a greater-sounding guitar.

ambabait nilang lahat dun (i was there yesterday - and sirs Jobet, Elmo and Anton (?) were there, in addition to a handful of customers).  had my '51 squier scalarized - met and crystal.  bought an LP-type toggle switch so I can toggle between met, crystal, and crystal met.  pinabutasan ko na yun control plate para ma accommodate yun switch.  mejo nagkaproblema nung una lang dahil di magkasya sa cavity yun switch at dalawang scalarizer, so konting tabas here and there si sir BAMF and finally napagkasya.

results? good side: now i can hear this guitar when playing with the band (before, i hardly used this for rehearsals and gigs, as it tends to get drowned out by the other instruments).  no one has been able to successfully describe the effect here in almost 50 pages of replies, and 'sparkly' would just have to be an approximation.  though i haven't had the time to do a thorough examination, preliminaries showed a lot of promise.  basta, as everyone here says, you gotta test it for yourself.

bad side: one of the scalarizers (i don't know which one actually hehe, probably the met) seemed to be too bright and sharp for my tastes.  but that's just a personal preference.  plus there's a bit of a grounding issue that surfaced post installation, but that can easily be remedied.

overall, panalo.  salamat sir BAMF and all the dudes at BAMFx.  You guys rock, more power to you!

Sir Jobet, if there's anything i can help you with, please don't hesitate to call or PM.  Thanks ulet!!!

oo nga, xelalien... pas share kung papaano... di ko mapagana yung switch ko eh.  :oops:

oo nga.. pano pag switching? bubutasan gitara para sa toggle switch? o dun parin sa tone selector?  :?

patulong naman.. baka kasi papalagyan ko rin ng metal yung gitara kong may crystal na eh..  :? :mrgreen: :?

try this one using a pushpull pot selecting between metal/crystal. nga lang pahirapan bumili ng pushpull. i find this one as non intrusive. you can change the position of the scalarizer and jack/switch the to your own preference. your comments are highly appreciated.

Hello Bamf & psychic_sushi,

Gusto ko din magpa-scalarize ng guitars ko. Isang samick lp at isang applause a/e. Tanong lang: Ano sked nyo, day & time? Pwede early morning mga 7am or sunday? IT ako sa call center kaya late morning til early evening tulog tapos work naman ako sa gabi. So, suggest din kayo magandang sked.

Pwede din ba sumama sa mga EB or tone parties nyo at ng ibang taga-philmusic pero taga-panood lang? hehe... hindi kasi ako mahusay at saka gusto ko makita mga hinahangaan ko - Gitarista. Onga pala, wag nyo ipa-test sa akin pag nagpunta ako sa inyo, kayo na lang mag-test. Mahiyain ako kasi hindi ko talaga linya mag-gitara. Hobbyist lang at naghahanap ng magandang tunog.

Haba ng thread pero binasa ko lahat. Nakita ko sa ibang page, naka-series yung config nung DPDT. ECE din kasi kaya nakakaintindi. Hindi ko nga lang ginagamit design ko, nasa telecommunications/IT ako. Gumawa na rin ako ng sarili kong tube screamer, wala lang time mag-mod pero plano ko later stomp box with real tubes. May satisfaction kasi pag sariling gawa.

My salute to you Bamf. Keep it up. Keep up the R&D and the business. And keep it here in the Philippines.

Hi Sig,

thanks for the illustration. I appreciate the effort. I was able to achieve the same with an ON-ON switch to toggle between stock and scalarized modes. Tested it last night at PIMP Studio and it is working fine.

What I was really looking for is a switch that will toggle between metal / stock / crystal modes. So far, an ON-OFF-ON sw gives metal / no signal / crystal, while an ON-ON-ON sw (which is hard to find) will give metal / metal+crystal (in series) / crystal settings.

Cheers.

Metal scalarizer ang bagay sa bass. Nagiging funky. Yung crystal, okay din, pero warm and wide sya for bass. Mas gusto ko metal pag bass, ang lutong ng tunog.

sir Bamf,sira po ba ang sacalarizer kapag may ground yung guitar? kasi napansin ko meron yung hllowbody ko,pero wala namang ganun nung hindi pa naiinstall yung scalarizer.....?

Anong tunog ? Dalhin mo uli pagkagaling mo sa school. Tignan natin. Pero basically ang scalarizer, pag sira, walang tunog antimano.

Yung ke tuyuta nga kagabi, me ugong, grounded, nung nakabitan ng scalarizer, nawala.

Baka nasa maingay na electrical environment ka, o yung power supply mo hindi regulated and etc etc na pwede panggalingan.

Ngapala. Tape mo yung scalarizer sa body ng gitara mo.

+1000 :-D
Today, i tried to see what my bassist would react when i trid to scalarize his fender jazz bass. We had a jam this afternoon, i told him that i was going to get his amp and his bass so he would not go get his gear from the drummers house. He told me thanks, at least wala na problema. I got the metal scalarizer from my guitar and connected it to his bass guitar without his knowledge. When he got to my place, i didn't know he has arrived, he was playing with his bass.

He told me that his bass sounded very different, it was full sounding and the sound got thick and the notes would ring out. He said that all his mistakes are coming out, he didn't understand it because it was so clear. By the way he has never heard of the scalarizer, he's not even a member of philmusic. He said he loves the sound of his bass, even though the strings were a bit old. I then told him, let open and see the electronics of his bass, he ask me "ano yung kulay brown" i told him that s a scalarizer which is proudly philippine made. Then i explained to him  about what the scalarizer does and he was wow, and he couldn't put his bass down, for the first time daw, he love the sound of his bass.

This is a great indication that even though someone who hasn't  heard of the scalarizer would actually hear the difference in his bass.  :-D

So it just shows that it works with bass guitars.  :-D

ser BAMF.. magkano uli yang scalarizer.. gagawing guinea pig ko muna yung washburn na bass ng bassist ko saka rerecomend ko sa tropa ko na may guitara bumili sya nung Strat na Rocket ang tatak yung nabibili sa Raon baka ma scienciahan nyang scalarizer mo. Up yan!

Thanks so much for the blind test and bass review !

Actually, I also got a rockstar Precision Bass and after playing with it awhile, I immediately scalarized it with a metal scalarizer. YUP ! Clear as a whistle notes, with harmonically complex overtones !

And as what happenned with Deacon_Blues 's Greco jazzbass, slap and pop routines sound very musical :D

Well again, it's P500 till further notice.

Good news. My stock out will not last long. The materials from the US arrived last friday, but I can get them only by tom. So tuloy-tuloy ang production.

just kiddin' buddy, really. if you wish to get your guitar loaded with one and feel that you may be uncomfortable in my dwellings, feel free to contact the folks closest to you.

but to be forthright, i dont lead a double persona (online/offline), so you've got nothing to worry about.  it would be nice to meet you and you will be dealt with cordially and hospitably, as with all the guests :-)

Hi to dominant chord and sir bamf. it took me awhile to go online again but it didnt take take too long for me to notice the difference I got on my DUo sonic despite not having too much technical knowledge like sir mike and bamf et al... bro mike akala ko dahil magaling na guitarista lang talaga sir sir Anton kaya tumunog mabuti ang guitar ko doon sa QC kaya sinubok ko agad sa bahay on my own amp. grabe ang ganda, sa totoo lang napuyat talaga ako sa kakaguitara. kinabukasan nga kamuntik na ako di makasama sa inspection namin.

nga pala iba na ba number ni dominant chord kasi may 2 guitars pa ako na papa scalarize kaso, dominant chord is not responding to my texts? di kasi ako pwede nong fri kasi my inspection kami kasama boss ko di pwede magdadala ng guitar. sir bamf kailan ako pwede magdala uli ng guitar?

bro mike, with the scalirizer on my guitar di na ako magpapalit ng pickup as I planned before. God bless you bro. regards to bro jojo

Hey bro!

It doesn't alter the electronics actually, as it also affects the wood. It can be considered a passive device, as it does not have electronically circuitry. it sources its power from the woods resonance, and an itsy-bitsy bit from the pick ups. whereas, preamps (or most of them) have to be juiced by a a battery.

Fellas, not long after BAMF scalarized a guitar of mine with good results a couple of weeks ago, I wrote him as I was quite sure of the essence behind the technology. I did promise him never to yakk about it publicly, as he deserves the best shot for getting it onto the market and making a tidy profit for all the effort and ingenuity he's put into it. Not to mention that he's gone about this business in a very decent entrepreneurial way -- go go go Jobet!

For those who "doubting thomases" about the device however, I will say this to ease your mind: it's based on very sound physics and electrical principles, notwithstanding the voodoo/mojo that some folks choose to ascribe to it. The technology has been around for sometime now and been in use quite extensively in many areas of endeavor, including within the music industry. In fact there are musical instruments that have already applied these principles, albeit with differing kinds of formulations, configurations, and degrees of control. The brilliance in this case lies in the following aspects:

• the fundamental formulation of the material which defines its voicing,
• the simplicity of application,
• the basic design and construction of the device,
• the minimal "intrusiveness" of the mod with regard to the stock appearance of an instrument,
• easy reversibility, and
• its cost to effectiveness ratio which makes it accessible and affordable to everyone wishing for a tone upgrade in this general direction.

At the end of the day, it's a technology that you would be able to identify and understand (yes there are sound physical explanations, delta), and nothing that would be harmful to yourself, the instrument, or the environment. Sorry guys.... no blood of endangered species spilled here.... should easily pass WWF, Greenpeace, and Haribon standards (making it ok therefore to eat, nate!  :-D).

Am just beginning to run tests in several types of guitars to see if the inherent qualities that make these models tonally identifiable are preserved by the scalarizer. Just have been swamped at work over the last weeks and a bit short on time  :oops:. Promised BAMF a review -- I'll get to it soon....

One thought: I'm aware of several devices and gear currently on the commercial market that move one's guitar sound towards a certain sonic territory that the scalarizer seems to want to occupy. The descriptions on this thread are fairly good indications of that direction. The cool thing about this device is that it's much more economical than most any of that other stuff (which includes amps, guitars, tubes, pedals, processors, cables, guitar parts, pickups, capacitors, etc.). This is the product's competitive advantage, and for me, will be the root of its success provided it doesn't stray too far from this basic parameter. Keep the product close to P500 (or within USD$ 10-15 inclusive of all packaging, material, promo, and labor costs) and you have a surefire winner.  8-)

it was nice meeting you guys.

it's a little too bad that i was already tired when i came in (nagkamali pa ako ng bahay na unang pinuntahan. hahaha). my hands were a bit shaky and my ears were struggling to evaluate the tones from the different configurations we tested. i could, however, some differences already. i'll comment on these gizmos in detail after i've spent enough time playing and listening through my own setup.

jobet, i'm sorry i couldn't take you up on that offer to lend me a pair of your specially-potted pickups. i actually have the perfect test guitar for it, but Jun and I have to be assemble it first. i'll ask Jun to start working on it. i'll come back for the pickups if they're still not in someone else's guitar by then. thanks again.

Al, I personally didn't hear and identify the differences right after they put it in. But after trying it out at home with a valve amp, there was something drastically different. I typically give up playing the guitar after 3 hours due to ear fatigue (I play with the channel volume at 10 and master at 5) but after installing the thing, I never experienced it again even after playing four 4 or 5 hours. It could be that the scalarizer really takes out some of the harsh elements, or alernatively, I just happen to quit playing way before the fatigue sets in, hehehe. :) Either way, it's a good thing.

i could actually hear a little difference between stock and scalarized (as well as series/parallel vs single). but between metal and crystal, i'm still pretty stumped. the crystal by itself was the last one we tested, so i opted for that one to stay for the moment.

sir aya is probably right. i'll have an easier time listening at lower volumes later tonight.

Ang lapit ng bahay ni psychic_sushi dun sa pinagpapagawaan ko ng printer. And I had business in Diliman (yeah, I know, still a bit far according to some standards). So, ayun, I had a good opportunity to pay a visit.

I really like his home studio.

Besides, I don't want to be like that hypocrite around here. I don't want to either rant or rave about things I really don't know anything about like some spoiled kid who's barely into puberty.  :-D

It doesn't alter the electronics actually, as it also affects the wood. It can be considered a passive device, as it does not have electronically circuitry. it sources its power from the woods resonance, and an itsy-bitsy bit from the pick ups. whereas, preamps (or most of them) have to be juiced by a a battery.

 :-)

psychic_sushi -- if it works "with" the wood, then will the effect on tone change as the wood ages/changes over time?

Al,

At the risk of sounding like tooting my own horn (or blowing my own [sausage] hahehehe), I did hear a marked difference between the stock and metal scalarized from the get-go. Your guitar is gorgeous aesthetically, and very ballsy sounding, stock.

When we connected the metal scalarizer, it sounded ballsy AND sparkly with a cutting midrange presence. Not really day and night difference as what happens when we scalarize [gooey brown stuff] guitars, but it was there. I was even kinda worried because if you already like your bill lawrence pickups to bits, you might opt to remove the scalarizer. Try disconnecting the scalarizer and listening again. I'm quite certain that the difference will not escape you.

BB,

I've given the pricing matter a lot of thought. A long time ago I guess, but maybe a better response to the matter is in order.

Keeley charges $70 for his mods. Arguably, I've already hit a spot where my DS-1 mods sound better than his. His only real advantage being Steve Vai and Satriani. But everyone I've talked to who has a keeley modded DS-1 found the bakemono and sushimods better. Heck, I have a local Keeley-modded DS-1 on my table right now, waiting to be Bakemonoéd. :D.

And from experience in my other businesses, buyers fall into that "you get what you pay for" trap.  Literally, if it's cheap, they think it's da [gooey brown stuff]. And they notice the thing and desire it more if it stings the wallet. Boston pedals are perfect examples of the contradiction to this flawed maxim. They have superior parts and better builds, and more features than the pedals they emulate, and at a fourth of the price to boot. But had they not been discussed extensively here at Philmusic, those items would still be thought of as da [gooey brown stuff] just like the many cheap-er pedals that preceded it.

Besides, to the Americans, USD$35-$40 is nothing. It's gasoline money. It's a night at a bar with friends. A cheap bar at that. It's two long taxi rides. How much would they pay for tone ?

My only promise to the Philmusic community : it will never be priced more than P1000. The pending price increase isn't even about greed. It's to prevent or at least minimize any black market exportation of the thing to the detriment of the legitimate international distributors. 

So there. For the Philippines, pricing will be only within the range of USD$15 to USD$20.

really, this thing is hard to explain, it is better felt. Al Librero just had his ultra-fantastic custom axe scalarized. (damn, that guitar was hot! Bill and Becky Lawrence loaded)
bamf, sushi and dominant chord,
it was nice meeting you guys.

it's a little too bad that i was already tired when i came in (nagkamali pa ako ng bahay na unang pinuntahan. hahaha). my hands were a bit shaky and my ears were struggling to evaluate the tones from the different configurations we tested. i could, however, some differences already. i'll comment on these gizmos in detail after i've spent enough time playing and listening through my own setup.

jobet, i'm sorry i couldn't take you up on that offer to lend me a pair of your specially-potted pickups. i actually have the perfect test guitar for it, but Jun and I have to be assemble it first. i'll ask Jun to start working on it. i'll come back for the pickups if they're still not in someone else's guitar by then. thanks again.

Al, I personally didn't hear and identify the differences right after they put it in. But after trying it out at home with a valve amp, there was something drastically different. I typically give up playing the guitar after 3 hours due to ear fatigue (I play with the channel volume at 10 and master at 5) but after installing the thing, I never experienced it again even after playing four 4 or 5 hours. It could be that the scalarizer really takes out some of the harsh elements, or alernatively, I just happen to quit playing way before the fatigue sets in, hehehe. :) Either way, it's a good thing.

... ummm... suggestion lang po... you might wanna try practising at a lower volume. That might help too.  :-)

I know, I know. I've been really particular about ear care but this amp just sings at those volumes. Haaay. I need an attenuator. Thanks AY!

I can't deny the fact that there is a difference between stock and scalarized. I was just too fatigued to fully grasp it. The crystal variant brought out a subtle added brightness (yes, a bit of sparkle as well) to the sound which I liked. I'll get back to the guitar later and listen more intently before I go about it in the forum in greater detail.

at the very least, i want to find a way to make the scalarizer switchable. it's gonna be tough without having to drill a new hole though, as you know.

by the way, have you tried wiring both scalarized and stock in parallel? naisip ko lang on the way home. hehehe.

Stock and scalarized in parallel ? Well, if you do it with a wire, that configuration will bypass the scalarizer and turn it off.

But I guess a 10 ohm or so resistor in parallel with the scalarizer is the way to go. That way, about half of the signal coming in will be stock, direct from the pickups.

That's a great idea Al ! We'll try that sometime.

Skunky, I got a 500kohm push-pull sa audiophile paco. Baka meron pa.

Have I mentioned how wonderful my Bamf'ed-up 62ri strat sounds to me?  :-D

Ewan ko kung nabanggit ko na dati ito: the guitar seems to get my amps to push more air. Pwede sya maging mahirap i-control pag mataas ang volume kasi biglang tumatalon yung notes especially double- or triple-stops. But, again, it forces me to focus on my playing technique. Pag nahanap mo na yung kiliti e mabilis naman ang payoff. The guitar is more responsive and dynamics are more dramatic.

Fafa, pahingi ng stickers! Kabit ko sa pedals!

baka makatulong sa inyo:

this is what i want: switching for stock, crystal, and metal scalarizer.

i removed my sz320's tone pot. i tried to replace it with a rotary switch, but the thread wasn't long enough to lock it in the hole. since i don't wanna do any drilling on my guitar, i just settled for a DPDT on-off-on. the problem is i can only switch: stock-off-crystal (or metal), or crystal-off-metal. and since i can't find any distiguishable sound using crystal, i decided to use the metal. this is what i did: the topmost pair of the toggle is shorted (for bypass). the middle pair, i terminated with the metal. then the last pair, with the crystal. in summary, this is my toggle config: on (bypass), off (metal), on (metal & crystal in parallel).

haven't tested it though. ehehehe. i'll try it tonight.

sana malinaw yung description ko. ehehehe

hi tuyuta,

i've been wrestling with my own switching configs... and have tried an on-on switch for stock-crystal and an on-on-on for crystal-crystalmet (in series)-metal. Di ko ma-i-sama yung stock sa latter switching....

Interesting kasi ito para sa mga mahilig magkutingting katulad ko, hehe... Anyways, from what i read sa balak mo, parang kasama pa rin ang metal in parallel when you switch to the desired bypass mode. Just as when you switch to the other side, crystal and metal in parallel yun. Pero, good luck bro. Sana umubra... and balitaan mo kami!  :-)

edited to add:

For testing, masarap isipin yung mga wiring config and various possibilities. But differences between one or the other or both may or may not be so subtle (and in the end may depend on your specific guitar and pickups, as others have said). So maybe, pag sa actual gamit na, bakha mas practical to commit to whichever setting you like Best and hard-wire it that way. just IMHO and YMMV.   :-D

sir san ka nakabili ng on-on-on na switch? yan ba yung pang neck-both-bridge na switch?

kaninang umaga ko ginawa yung config ko. naubusan lang ako ng time magtesting. may pasok sa ofc e. bypass (shorted) ay nakaparallel nga sa metal. that means hindi nya dadaanan yung metal dahil shorted na sya. ang formula nyan e r=resistance:

(r1)(r2) / (r1 + r2). r1 yung shorted, r2 yung metal. since r1=0, 0 na total resistance. shorted sya.

meron bang toggle switch na 4P3T? yun ang solution sa bypass,metal,crystal.

mamaya ko palang, o bukas ko matetesting yung config ko.

tinatamad lang ako magpractice kya nagagawa ko ang mga ito. nakaka-inspire sina anton & elmo magjamming. sarap tumambay sa bamfx shop!

Aaah... Nice to know. Thanks, bro! Bigay lang sa akin yung on-on-on switch ko. Di pa ako nakakita nito nor a 4P3T either sa Deeco or Alexan. Dalawang on-on pwede for all the 4 options diba? pero ang pangit na tignan!

I tried some wierd wiring with an old guitar (335 clone) by replacing the two volume contols with two pots each having "push/pull on-on"switches to simulate a 2P3T.  Wire it such that at the most likely switching position used, nakabaon (pushed) yung pots so parang standard ang itsura.

this just in...

microchimp (Kit) had GREAT BIG TONE last night at the Blueskrieg gig.  Gerry (Blueskrieg producer) and I were exchanging comments about how good Kit's tone was; I charged it to his experience and knowledge of the Technology of Tone.  Then BAMF shows up and tells me that it's a scalarized guitar.  Nuff said.

More importantly, Kit, Erick and the rest of Kulukati are great musicians - BAD MOFOs all.  D best prog blues in the country, folks!

BAMF: The microphone scalarizer is an external device right? Is it possible to apply that technology in a pedal form for guitars? I'm thinking of putting it at the end of the effects chain to put in some frequencies that might be taken out by the patch cables, effects buffers etc.

Yes Fafa Joric.

Any electric guitar with an output jack can be scalarized.  :? :?

Judging from your preferred tone (bright vintage ngongo ?), I think metal would suit you better.

Dali na Fafa ! Let's do the acoustic scalarizer demo.

Yup yup !

Or you can opt for switching. Mabubutas nga lang gitara mo.

And...you won't be the first with an individual scalarizer for every pickup. It's been done before :D . Mas versatile lang ang switching kc you can opt for parallel scalarizers at one setting of the switch.

Metal scalarizer ang bagay sa bass. Nagiging funky. Yung crystal, okay din, pero warm and wide sya for bass. Mas gusto ko metal pag bass, ang lutong ng tunog.

ayos na to, sana pumayag si kanshooter. :-D

Laki ng difference. so ayun.. hehe walang sabi-sabi kinabitan bass ko. sabi nga ni sir Jobet, holdap daw eh. Linaw na ngayon ng low B string ko.

I had my Fender Strat scalarized last night...

There was one word that came to mind immediately after hearing the new sound of my strat...
"BELLS" OMFG! :-D
Am I hearing bells?Hehe...Grabe I've never heard the natural tone of my strat like this before. Sobrang claro kahit malakas. The "popping" and "quacking" sound of a single coil became more defined.

It's so amazing how such a tiny object can make a HUGE difference with my guitar sound.
I will play later at the UP Fair and I've never felt this confident before as I know that my guitar won't let me down.  :-)

To Sir BAMF, psychic_sushi, and dominantchord2005:
Thanks so much oh great ones. :-D you guys are really nice!

On the day that we were supposed to go to Arie, sya nagsabi na hindi sya pwede. So on the principle of the raincheck, and according to his texts to anton, we understood na sya ang pupunta sa PIMP. He hasn't come yet and is fully welcome, Lito Bote included because wala kaming masamang tinapay sa kanila.

Sir alex and sir Jobet and to all na din who are flaming.

With all due respect, lets not turn this into a circus of whose better and who cant show up and what not. I respect the both of you to the highest level, BAMF being the "FILIPINO MUSICIANS friend" due to his affordable yet effective solution to those people who cannot afford to buy expensive items, and sir alex for his hard work to afford those expensive gears. I believe this thread is about informing the public about the innovation that our fellow countryman has deviced to elevate and sustain the quality of the instrument that we all love. So please let us not turn it into a mockery of some sort. Let us just be happy that we have BAMF and his vision to help the pinoy musician and ALEX (oasgomez) for providing us reviews on the expensive gears that he has. Both parties are more than informative and helpful to each and everyone and lets try to keep it that way.

Lets have a positive attitude towards one another.

Vaisteen,

With all due respect, how does he calling me CHICKEN help the Pinoy Musician?  By the way, it was he who claimed first that it will beat titanium, the onus is on him to prove it. 

This is his circus not mine.  You can see in the number of his posts along with his cronies' posts.  If this has become a circus it is because of his name calling -- lets be clear on that.  You can review this whole thread and count the number of insults from his end.

Also, expensive gear is a by-product of my personal experience.  Remember, I did recommend the tip on the Strat backplate and that was for free.  And I have said, that if the scalarizer is truly unique and better sounding that alternatives it claims to beat, I would even buy it for P3,000.  I have nothing to gain here.  I do not need to sell anything to anyone.  Let me remind you, how does increasing the price from P500 to P1000 help the Filipino musician now?

No apology needed.  You are free to write your point of view, but sometimes I feel that I also have to post my point of view when I think there is something wrong or misunderstood.  And I am saying there is something wrong if people admire BAMF for his scalarizer and yet at the same time allow him to use this forum to insult people who do not agree with his point of view.

bamf (and fyi, alex) - in one rehearsal a few weeks ago, arie texted me and asked if i had a scalarized gtr to bring to our rehearsal. sabi ko wala pa ako scalarized gtr but asked why he asks. i didn't want to assume na interested sya but asked anyway, out of courtesy.  sabi nya curious sya. so i responded to say that i'll txt some people to drop by him and let him listen to the scalarized gtrs.  a few days before that lito also texted asking basically the same thing.  ewan ko lang kung ano na nangyari dun.

if and when i get to try the scalarizer, i'll surely bring it to rehearsal and even perhaps sa shop ni arie so he (and lito) can hear and test it. 

para matapos na lang yang iringan tungkol sa who should make the move... but didn't, etc...  para iba na lang pag-awayan nyo, mababaw yan e.  :-)

peace y'all.

Onus of proof ? I gave you a chance to prove that your titanium sustain block was worth it by pitting it against an inexpensive scalarizer. You ran off to Elegee. And as it is, you embarrassed yourself there with a sustain block that doesnt sustain ! (hahahaha). Beaten by a trem block that doesnt even cost half of what you spent for. Then when you bit the challenge, you wanted it on your terms. What your terms ? We measure your sustain with you standing in front of your Diezel Herbert at full blast, while I will be unplugged and you measure my guitar's sustain with a stethoscope ? Why don't we just go into a boxing match with both my hands handcuffed behind me ? Why don't you go guitar on guitar ? Why did you want signal chain to signal chain ? But in a few days, I was ready to pit my modified Fender Stage 112 against your Herbert. Still game ? Bukasan lang tayo ng cavity ha. Just have to make sure that you're not using my own technology against me.

This is his circus not mine.  You can see in the number of his posts along with his cronies' posts.  If this has become a circus it is because of his name calling -- lets be clear on that.  You can review this whole thread and count the number of insults from his end.

Ooo !!! After all the people you've already insulted, pa-biktima epek ka ha hahahaah! Wow. After all your potshots which you've happily hurled yourself, I insult you! Do you remember all the BS you hurled at me when I was starting out modding pedals ? Well, you reap what you sow. Ooo...did I just say..."sow"? Hahehehe. Fellow forumites, this is irony for yáll!

Also, expensive gear is a by-product of my personal experience.  Remember, I did recommend the tip on the Strat backplate and that was for free

And who gave you the idea to post that ? Di naman ikaw naka-isip nun kungdi yung kumpare mo e hahaha.

.  And I have said, that if the scalarizer is truly unique and better sounding that alternatives it claims to beat, I would even buy it for P3,000.  I have nothing to gain here.  I do not need to sell anything to anyone.  Let me remind you, how does increasing the price from P500 to P1000 help the Filipino musician now?

Haay. Galeng ! Applause ! Applause! Applause ! How does your "not for the financially challenged" statements help the Filipino musician ? How are you helping your kumpare's guitar luthiery business ? Nothing to gain ? C'mon. I see through you now. You're trying to buy something that you sorely lack. Respect. Oh ! You don't have to admit it, I understand. If you were on a genuine tonequest, you'd rather just have stayed there are Tonequest report. But hey ! Nobody to bully there ! Nobody to "educate"  ! Nobody to say "you haven't heard it" to. As for the P500 to P1000, knowing what I know about you now, I don't expect you to know about business strategy or prerogatives. I even remember you saying that if I were really helping people, I should give it out for free. URUR! Gee...I wonder how all your constant bragging about your gear helps the Filipino musician ? Tsk...tama si Skunky. Nang-aasar ka lang talaga.

I'm out to help musicians by offering them a tone upgrade that only costs like a pack of strings. I'd help you din sana, if you were only a musician hahahaha !!!!

Hay di natapos flames dito...

Anyways sir BAMF I did get to test my scalarized guitar kanina with a Mesa Triple Rectifier sa UP Fair...

The volume and gain knobs were set at 1/4 (mga 3 siguro un kung 0-10)
Even the volume of my pedal was set at that level...
Ibang klase yung tunog ko kanina litaw na litaw, I love the loudness yet clarity of the notes I were hitting kanina,hanep talaga ser! :-D
I played nung tuesday din sa fair with the same amp pero di pa scalarized yung strat ko and I set the knobs at 1/2 pero mas malakas pa ko kanina. yun na yun. based on my experience.
Once again thank you for your "magic".  :-)
La lang kwento ko lang.

plugged in my dual-scalarized guitar, nasa 3 pa lang yung volume nung peavey amp, nalalakasan na yung drummer namiN!

and weird is, kahit san ako pumwesto, ganun pa rin ang "level" nung gitara ko! totoo nga talaga na "it cuts through the mix"! anlufet talaga.

And FYI I remember that day very distinctly. It was a monday and we were kinda thrilled to go. I was thinking if Arie liked the scalarizer, he might introduce me to Barbie Almalbis.  Crush ko yun e. Married to a Honasan, notwithstanding. Di naman ako seloso masyado e.  :mrgreen:

But Arie's text to Anton : me lakad sila ni Lito . It was very specific. The next text a few days down Arie texted  "daan ka pag me time ka. Dalhin mo Greco mo, papakita ko sa yo kung ano hinahanap ko". Something to the effect.  So no specific date.

So it's not a matter of who makes the first move. We'd still gladly go as we have nothing against Arie, notwithstanding his being tainted by his association with you. Anton is now on the night shift and I am horribly busy with the volume of orders I'm getting, as well as adjusting production processes here and there.

But sure, if this makes you sleep better, I'll make the time to go.

Maybe I can still get to meet Barbie  :evil:



Well you better check again with Anton.  Arie was waiting the whole day and Arie never ever said he would go to PIMP.  He is too busy fixing too many guitars.  As I remember correctly, si Anton ang magpapaset-up and we all know that Arie does not do home service because of the current load for repair.

I wonder if the scalarizers look like improvised bombs.  Baka maharang sa x-ray.  No joke.

I had a box of 6 bottles of fat-reducing pills that somehow could have looked like a time bomb, which caused serious shipping delays.  Hence I switched to dieting (which didn't seem to work either.)  :-D

Jobet, dapat siguro maging discreet ang pagkaka-package.  And if you can add an instructional guide, much better...

Yup it does cut through the mix. Ayaw ko i-contaminate ang observations nyo so di ko muna share yung ibang findings. Pero clue. Try nyo sya ng malayo talaga from an amp. Say 20 feet away. :D

My MIJ Squier is suddenly singing. I thought the reverb in the Yamaha amp was on when Dominant was slinging away, it was at zero pala. The clarity and the presence of the strings finally appeared. Now, I just have to replace my crappy HS-3.

On my $99 (5,000) Epi LP Jr Special (Now, at 5,500 because of a tootsie roll): The muddines was gone. Clear and a little more mid range tone. The great Anton jammed on it with Elmo. Man, Anton knows how to play. He played 5 genres in 2 minutes.  He was even better dressed than me! The EPI sang like Larry Carlton with Anton picking the strings. Anton on a $99 guitar will always be better than a $4,000 amp.

its the tootsie-roll with a leg  :-)


It's a small tootsie-roll candy shaped device. An add-on small enough to fit into the cavities of most (if not all) electric guitars. You remove the wire connecting the pickup selector switch and volume control and replace that with this instead. Think of it as a wire replacement. Nothing else needs to be touched inside the guitar, just those two solder joints.

point of clarification.

arie texted me out of the blue interested to hear the scalarizer, i gladly obliged. as i do have a busy sched and deal with shifting schedules, we tried to set a particular time, and he did tell me that he had things to do with lito. I was supposed to be on at 8pm that day, but fate had it otherwise, and i did invite him to pass by if he had the time with lito, as BAMF would be at the workshop.

it takes him 2-3hrs sometimes to reply, i understand he's got his hands full. i, on the other hand, need to sleep during the day.

i also find it creepy that you take pot shots at other threads, then finally gather the guts to throw poop here when you muster the strength to, when everyones having a blast.

i dunno. maybe i need to let it grow on me muna. there was a change, i tested both teles through a 2x12 laney vc30. turned up really loud (my neighbors love me now). i didnt like the change. or maybe i've just gotten so used to hearing the teles sound a certain way and have trained my ears to like that and nothing else.

i'm not knocking the tootsie roll. it does change the way the guitar sounds. it just isnt for me, i guess.

will try to drop it into the frankenstrat tonight. between the bridge pickup bucker. i think, from what i heard from the teles, it will work better there.

Haha, i've seen this already, classic!!!.  Diba hinawakan niya yung bolo ba yun, tapos nilagay niya yung baril, tapos pintutok niya para mahati yung bala, tapos tinamaan yung dalawang kalaban niya.

Sir delta, thanks to you, i pissed in my pants laughing!!! langya, i didn't expect anyone would remember that movie. especially about him carrying his guts. hahaha!!! Thanks man, you made my day!!!

Iba pa yang dinescribe mo pero classic din yan.  Yung naalala ko, binaril yung bida. Tapos habang nasa ere at papunta yung bala sa kanya, may oras pa siya para bumunot, bumaril, at tamaan ang bala ng kalaban para di umabot sa kanya!

Yung sinasabi mo naman, last bala na pero dalawa pa kalaban nya natitira. So ano gagawin nya?  Ano pa eh di tinapat nya yung bolo/kutsilyo sa tapat ng baril. Pagputok at paglabas ng bala sa gun barrel nahati sa dalawa at tumama sa dalawang kalaban nya!

Actually, I'm already shipping things that look more sinister than the scalarizers. Tipo bang mukhang detonator ng bomba talaga. Hahaha. Laging nahaharang. Buti na lang DHL takes very good care of my account. I love them to bits !

Fraudulent and Xelalien,

Yup it does cut through the mix. Ayaw ko i-contaminate ang observations nyo so di ko muna share yung ibang findings. Pero clue. Try nyo sya ng malayo talaga from an amp. Say 20 feet away. :D

Thanks ngapala for the glowing review.


Back to regular programming. Tama na showbiz !

Trivia lang - during the last few films of DaKing, he already had a lot of top of the line film making machines, services, etc at his disposal. In fact yung last films niya was supposed to be in Dolby Digital. So when it came to the fight scenes, foleys were employed to make natural sound effects, fists hitting fists, tummys, uppercuts, straights, etc.  Iba-ibang tunog yun di ba?

Surprisingly, during the offline viewing DAking noticed the seemingly realistic sound effects of his punches.  He immediately instructed everyone to use his oldstyle, one of a kind suntok sound effect.
Yung tugudugudugudug pag nagrapidfire sha sa tyan ng kalaban. Otherwise di niya babayaran yung post production unit. :wink:

Titanium bridges are supposed to bring out the true character of your guitar, and that is why there are bad reviews.  Why?  Because if your guitar inherently sounds dull, the dullness will be enhanced further by the titanium block. 

As for the scalarizer, the way I understand it, it is far more forgiving in improving a guitar's sound, even a crappy one.  More of an "upgrade" than something that accentuates the real and inherent timbre of the guitar.

But then Alex said (in person), both the Scalarizer and Titanium bridge are two different peripherals.  So that means, what can beat a Ti block AND a Scalarizer (granting that the Scalarizer can improve the sound)?  In fact he never discounted the capability of a scalarizer to improve the sound of a guitar.  But his point is, everyone can afford it, so the craze is there.  Which is why I opened a new thread (which had been deleted AFAIK)  which asks the following questions:

(WHAT IF) Scalarizer Prices increase to P3000?

1.  Would you bother to try one?
2.  If you have tried one, will you still buy it?
3.  If you bought one, do you think the price is worth what it does?
4.  Up to how much will you pay for a scalarizer?

Surprisingly, some folks mentioned that for P3000, they'd rather get new pickups.  IMO, if it's really that great, no pickup can compete with a scalarizer.  It's just that, it's cheap.  Value-wise, if it's great, you'd pay as much as you would pay for diamonds to please your fiance.

I intend to have my guitars switchable from scalarized to normal.  That way we can have a fair assessment of the item. 

To the new folks here, Mr. oashole is really trying to defeat the so-called TYRANNY OF MAJORITY.  It's all about compelling everyone to defend their thoughts by treading on political incorrectness.   I know it's sad, but it does a fine job in making this forum a great place for discussion, save for the pikunan...

You made a thread that was totally baseless and actually maligned BAMF because of the falsity of the thread title. Of course, you made a hypothetical disclaimer in your first post but the damage was already done. Quite irresponsible from a person in your stature.

Poisoned fruit doctrine: If the tree has been poisoned, so shall the apples be. Since your topic was untruthful from the start, any response to such is based on a falsity. Saying that the majority would rather buy pickups because of the alleged scalarizer price increase is totally baseless and lacks merit.

hey skunk. i'll let you know what my sked is like this week. pero i'd want to go definitely.

as for me, i had my squier strat scalarized last night. (thanks micsis!)

my initial findings: the guitar now sounds fuller. there was definitely more low end after the crystal scalarizer was installed. wasn't boomy though. just right.. i also noticed a change in timbre whenever i strummed. some people described a sort of woody sound, and i think that was it. very nice. :)

sayang lang, micsis didn't have the metal ones in stock. i would've wanted to try those out, kahit sa strat. i'm actually aftraid to pin all the credit to the tootsie roll (OH, SACRILEGE!!!!), since i had new GFS alnicos installed (AND i'm still trying to find their sweetspot), and tone pots changed from 500k to 250k, PLUS i took out my back plate like OAS suggested.. so i'm thinking of taking it out for a bit, then put em back in after a few weeks..

pero yung woody sound, mehn. yung scalarizer na yun mehn.  :-o




letour: in fairness to skunk, i don't think there's anything wrong with exploring the implications of pricing. especially in our culture where "bang-for-buck" is the name of game. on the bright side, it's not like there are moral implications involved, such as preferring pirated CD's to the original ones.

Tabloid approach? Not defamatory? Hmm.... Let me read Cristy Fermin again.

Of course you will claim that it isn't defamatory. It's up to the offended person. And I did see BAMF that infamous Saturday when you posted that erased thread. Damage due to defamatory remarks is not present in sales. It is present in the offended person. When the target of the "tabloid" approach feels attacked, there lies the damage.

Here is your logic: Would you vote for anyone in this year's election if the candidate was endorsed by FPJ? (pinoy movie topic) Any answer would be baseless because this event didn't happen or rather cannot happen.

Nevertheless, your thread posted last Saturday created a controversy to which BAMF had to defend himself. Thus, the damage. Thereafter, you apologized.

If there was no damage, why did you say sorry?

Damage due to defamatory remarks is not present in sales. It is present in the offended person. When the target of the "tabloid" approach feels attacked, there lies the damage.


I never intended to offend BAMF.  Speaking of damages, are you talking about moral damages?  So if LA Lopez was offended by one episode of Bubble Gang (where he was being called OA Lopez), is it right to say that the show was defamatory? 

Here is your logic: Would you vote for anyone in this year's election if the candidate was endorsed by FPJ? (pinoy movie topic) Any answer would be baseless because this event didn't happen or rather cannot happen.


Ya know, in the rules of evidence, the idea of the other camp is always to destroy someone else's credibility, even if the person is telling the truth.  So are you saying that when everyone takes pot shots at oasgomez' threads, does that mean that EVERYONE'S OPINIONS automatically become invalid?  So if I would respond to an oasgomez thread and say Joric is a great slide player, would that automatically be a statement in question?  I am no lawyer but as I always believe, legality is not the same as morality.  You can be morally responsible for something although legally you aren't, and vice-versa. 

Nevertheless, your thread posted last Saturday created a controversy to which BAMF had to defend himself. Thus, the damage. Thereafter, you apologized.

If there was no damage, why did you say sorry?


I apologized to avoid any damages to the person.  If there was any apparent damage to him, then all I can say was that was purely unintentional.  After all, tao lang tayo na nagkakamali. 

But as to the deletion of the thread (whose title I modified), I honestly think Mamang Pulis misconstrued my intentions. 'Ika nga, "why burn the forest to kill one snake?"

Post by: BAMF on February 20, 2007, 11:08:32 PM
Actually Dodgie, while I can't tell for sure about certain things, it's just that I'm wary of your motives.

I mean, pricing is my prerogative, right ? In the same way that the purchase decision is the prerogative of the buyer.  Why are you even making it an issue ? What exactly are your motives (well...if they were any ill intent, I don't expect you to tell me :D ) . Are you trying to peg it down so that it doesnt shoot beyond 3k ? Are you trying to pry into the perceived value of the thing ? Are you dredging up for reasons for people to NOT buy it beyond a certain price ?  Or are you trying to manipulate me into a corner ? I don't know, really. Again, certain people bought titanium trem blocks of dubious value for much, much more than even 3k. :D

I don't know. Whatever the answer to those are, it still boils down to one thing : it's none of your business. Specially so that you have not yet formed your own personal opinion on the value of the Scalarizer, simply because you haven't heard one nor had one installed.

I'm not sure if you've worked in a corporate marketing environment, but whenever a market study is commissioned, which generally includes a price sensitivity matrix, the results of those studies are always CONFIDENTIAL. This is to allow the company to act and correct any negative matters that can be gleaned from the study.

But if you conduct that study HERE, the results, whatever they are will never be confidential. Whatever positives and negatives cannot be acted on discreetly because they have been disclosed from the get-go. And for that, the motives behind this kind of question are suspect. It's even possible that you're trying to embarass me in some way. No I don't know. Let's just say I'm on a "shields up" mode on this one.

To put the matter to rest, I don't recall hiring you to conduct a marketing study and price sensitivity for me. And certainly not here.

Why not just enjoy the here and now for now ? And this is the here and now: it's available, it works and it's cheap. Why waste your time conjecturing ?

But it's a free world. If you're doing this in preparation for some major offensive or collecting data or bullets, or just for stirring up plain tabloidal controversy as you're wont to do...then it's up to you. I can likewise choose whether I should, or should not be affected. Know why ? Because if it does hit the 3k+ price level, it only means that something really good happenned to me and I can afford to not heed the wishes of the local market :D

Fellow forumites, I ask you to just ignore this question. While I don't find it offensive, I do find it irritating and out of line.

Cheers !

Well said man, but rest-assured, I have no intention to harm anyone else's business.  My questions were formulated to find out how elastic the market would be.  Because IMO, a perfect product would be bought by everyone in the social spectrum. 

When skeptics in the '80s said synthesizers will put real musicians out of work, a lot of people thought so.  But did it happen?  Hell no.  Because you cannot dispute the truth that real musicians sound better than say, programmed guitar sounds (using synths).  So if someone poses a "Scalarizers are a fad and it'll die someday..." then just wait and see.  For all I care, I want your invention to pass the test of fire... from the ears of tone deaf folks to audiophiles'. 

As time passes, I see a good number of folks having their guitars scalarized.  I hope everyone retains them though.  Bottomline is I am just collecting data... finding out the behavior of your patrons.  I am still finding time to buy mine as well. 

Cheers!

Well in that case, thanks man.

These are the market plain truths. Nobody likes price increases. It is natural that any price increase, specially if the commodity is highly prized or needed, or loved, will be met with aversion. And results of "oh I won't buy it anymore if it increases" will be common. And those kidns of opinions have a bandwagon effect. Hence, a potential harming of the business.

The scalarizer, in the local market, is coming from a point where it was already offered at such and so price level. The market is now conditioned to it and any price increase will naturally be met with resistance, knowing that it is quite possible to offer it *pala* at such low prices.

Now in the internatiojnal market, where the scalarizer is unheard of, I have a free reign on the pricing, specially so considering the purchasing power of the foreign markets. Again, the price increase is not a matter of greed (as the markup will not go to me but to the local distributors). It's a matter of protection for the international dealers. If this were not done, cheap scalarizers will be exported all over to the detriment of the legit distributors. I hope you see where I'm coming from.

That's why, sir, the discussion of the price sensitivity is a delicate one. And frankly, I won't mind that you ask, but only if your feet are in the right place e.g. you've had personal experience with the device and can see (and hear) what it does, first hand. Anything else before this, again, will be suspect or at the very least, academic.

That being said, we can arrange for scalarizer units to be mailed to you. You can remit payment via Gcash. Text me at the number on my sig. Thanks.



^^^
Well said man, but rest-assured, I have no intention to harm anyone else's business.  My questions were formulated to find out how elastic the market would be.  Because IMO, a perfect product would be bought by everyone in the social spectrum. 

When skeptics in the '80s said synthesizers will put real musicians out of work, a lot of people thought so.  But did it happen?  Hell no.  Because you cannot dispute the truth that real musicians sound better than say, programmed guitar sounds (using synths).  So if someone poses a "Scalarizers are a fad and it'll die someday..." then just wait and see.  For all I care, I want your invention to pass the test of fire... from the ears of tone deaf folks to audiophiles'. 

As time passes, I see a good number of folks having their guitars scalarized.  I hope everyone retains them though.  Bottomline is I am just collecting data... finding out the behavior of your patrons.  I am still finding time to buy mine as well. 

Cheers!

Why order when we can have fun at the BAMFx shop?  Maybe if God allows I can bring my ref-sized rack for recording and a laptop, a video cam, and some mics to document the before/after scalarization process...  At the very least I wanna bring my rig...

On another note, was able to use a scalarized Ballantine microphone last night. Very encouraging ! Although I was hoarse and without voice on the Feb. 19 Hazy nights, the audience said it didnt sound like it.

Corroborated by the Badass Mofoes drummer, who said that I didnt sound hoarse from the PA during practice, even if he could hear my "i love the children" Michael Jackson voice from my own pipes.

Don't expect to be Steve Vai or Jaco or whoever your idol-of-the-moment is because of this device.  It'll make your axe sound great, but if you're a [gooey brown stuff] player don't expect to improve much there.  The scalarizer just gives you one less excuse for a [gooey brown stuff] performance.   :wink:

Shipping charges  will be on your bill . As for payment you can deposit the amount to BAMF' account. PM na lng namin sau or u can contact me @ 09159501603

good question bro...censia na sa lahat ngauyn lng ako ulit nag post...busy ako with job applications eh..saka sa PIMP of course...lagi na laman ng shop (halatang adik)

the metal core scalarizer was not called metal to fit the purpose of enhancing metal sounds on your guitar.
Unlike the crystal core who breathes life to your strats due to the added brilliance and detail on the guitars tone...the metal core scalarizer increases the midrange therefore resulting to a fat, more robust tone, but still has that clarity. its good for jazz tones, its also good for all genres...even the crystal core works on metal sounds...
actually..it depends on you kung ano klase ng scalarizer ang bagay sa tunog na ginagawa mo.

expect your metal core scalarizer to breathe whenever you noodle with ur axe....subukan mo umupo sa amp mo while playing clean tone on your scalarized guitar, not only can u hear the difference, you can feel it as well.

feel free to drop by the BAMFx HQ/PIMP studios, the address is under BAMF's signature. anton and I will be more than glad to give you a demo of the scalarizer as well as the bakemono if you want to explore the modded pedals as well. |I can assure you...lahat ng nagpalagay wore smiles on their faces after they heard the difference. Eto rin madalas ko sinasabi sa mga tao...wala naman mawawala kung susubukan mo....lahat ng sumubok...masaya sa resulta..but do'nt take my word for it...as the others ...as of now..scalarized guitars of philmusicians are up @100 and counting 

some are skeptical about it...i cant blame them...kung kano siguro nagbenta nito wala na tanong tanong kahit mahal presyo....bibilhin...BAMFx is here to help the pinoy musician. no matter how "cheap " ur gear is as some claim them to be...the scalarizer can help ease that problem if not totally eradicate the sickness that's been bugging all of us: Gear Acquisition Syndrome.

The scalarizer will fix that bro, as it adds detail and presence. its a mud sucker. i'm hinting that crystal will do the trick for you, but we can only truly determine what suits it if you drop by and give it a shot.  :-) but if the muddiness is unbearable, having your pickups BAMF potted should solve it, as that too, clears the cloudiness like summer sunlight

kinda, but the results are always pleasant. Deacon Blues lefts his ply bodied maya strat with me for the longest time, and i even used that on a gig much to the surprise of some folks as it was the cheapest guitar onstage (just like yours truly, heheheheh  8-) )

ply does not sound bad, it'll get the job done. the scalarizer should beef it up, as it works with resonance, and the maya strat had lots of resonance (though not scalarized, i can imagine the extra beef and chime a metal sparkler can benefit it)

I just got my scalarizer yesterday morning. Yahoooo. First one to have it in zamboanga city and whole region 9. hahahhaha. Ask ko lang mga bro kung tama ba yung pag lagay ko sa strat ko? (http://www.tezorosdelmar.com/leo/scalarizer3.jpg)Tama ba???? After I install the scalarizer sa guitar ko I plug it in agad sa amp ko and I'm not sure if tama nga ang pag lagay but I could hear the difference. WOW! It blew me away. Naka flat lahat ng EQ ng amp ko pero it sounds good. Balanced talaga ang sound. Before ko ininstall ung scalarizer it sounds horrible on a flat eq sa amp ko. This Crystal scalarizer is so damn good and I'm really excited for our next practice sa isang studio here sa amin. I want to hear how it could cut through the mix with the drums, bass and other guitars. I'm very satisfied with the crystal scalarizer, it has clarity and sparkle. It's really true you could hear bell tones, I could really hear those bell tones sa Strat ko na I can't hear before. It sounds like crrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnggggggg. Thank You talaga Sir BAMF you're a "GENIUS". Ipon muna ako ulit pra this march I could order ulit ng scalarizer ung metal pra sa bass guitar saka ung mic scalarizer na rin. hehehehehe. Guys, did you notice something bout the scalarizer???? I never read this pa sa thread na ito. I notice na pag open ko ng plastic may amoy siya. It smells so damn good. heehehe.

pareho nalang tayo ng gawin, fafa. ensayuhin natin rhythm playing natin para pwede tayo sumabay tapos pabayaan natin sila. mabibigyan pa natin sila ng magandang backing tracks habang nagnanakaw ng licks.  :-D

 I'm very satisfied with the crystal scalarizer, it has clarity and sparkle. It's really true you could hear bell tones, I could really hear those bell tones sa Strat ko na I can't hear before. It sounds like crrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnggggggg. Thank You talaga Sir BAMF you're a "GENIUS".

I thought I was the only one that heard scarlarized strats with bell tones. Same with me dude. I can't seem to put my strat down. Even plugged straight into a Fender 15G with no EQ, my strat was singing bell chimes. Clear as day. With gain, my scarlarized strat has a sustain that lasted for hours. It didn't have it before.

For those with strats, there is no doubt that a crystal scalarizer would be a great mod. You know what they say, when two or more scalarized strat owners hear the same bell tones, the tones gods are smiling.     8-)

Oki. According to my cel, which I'm able to inspect only now...the last text was when you were asking for my full name. Ditto with your phone call this morning.

Just text me your snail mail address. I don't know why it is, but I haven't even gotten the confirmation text from globe regarding your Gcash deposit.

Hey guys, been taking a look at this thread and I'm beginning to get tempted to get "scalarized" :D

I'm having a problem with pinch harmonics and I don't know whether it's my technique or talagang mahina lang ang pups ng gitara ko (still playing my Vantage axe). Do you think a scalarizer would solve that?

The scalarizer does help the player with their pinch harmonics since it improves the tonality of your guitar. Mark of kinkyhooters is a specialist in pinch harmonic techniques and I can say his scalarized Nuno Bettencourt guitar broadened the horizons in his technique. When he demoed his guitar at the Hive yesterday he was in for the surprise of his life. And he did blew us away with his magnificent mastery of his instrument.  Do drop by at the BAMFx lab and I assure you'll be surprised with the results as well. The address is under BAMF's sig. feel free to come anytime.

anong pickup position gamit mo pag nagpi-pinch harmonics ka? pinaka-responsive sa harmonics yung bridge pickup. tapos usually hahanapin mo na lang yung position kung saan pinakamalakas at tama yung nota ng harmonic.

yes, the scalarizer can do that. dati, ok na ok ang pinch harmonics ko.. tapos, after magpa setup, gumalaw ang sweet spots.. nung nagpa scalarize ako, putcha, ok na ok na ngayon! pati mga tone knob, nabuhay! magpascalarize ka na :)

Tapos na. Na-scalarize na namin ang drums sa PIMP last night. Hanggang cymbals.

Ngapala guys, yesterday, yung cel ko was not receiving any texts and was not registering any phone calls.

It needed a reset. It's working again, I think. So kung me nag-text sa kin yesterday afternoon, please re-text me na lang.

Thanks !
