    String spacing is 18mm To be frank, I do think this is the way! 🧐 I've been asked to sell 'cheaper' by returning it to stock...as I replied, it seems to be going backwards. My genuine belief is that this is now a much better instrument.

    Wired in parallel but can be in series...even single/dual coils I’m sure switches can be fitted (micro for sure...) I’ll get around to a cavity pic ASAP.
  9. Alesis micro series used to be the bomb!! Here is a nice vintage with a power supply included. Studio use intended but small enough to fit on a pedal board if that’s what you want.... Blurb: ‘This is “the other” vintage compressor from Alesis. The Micro Limiter is a 1/3U stereo limiter which is famous for smashing drums, nuking snares, mullering cymbals and squashing bass guitar Although Alesis call it a limiter, at low compression levels – when the green LEDs are lit – it uses a ratio between 2:1 and 8:1. With the yellow LEDs on CR is around 10:1 and, with the final red LEDs lit, 16:1. It uses a soft-knee approach, so there is always some compression going on, but higher input levels means more compression and a higher ratio There’s no Threshold control – just Input, Release & Output controls and an In/Out switch. The back panel is equally minimal with input & output jacks and a power socket Release time is the key here – with fast release times and lots of compression you get pumping & breathing but slowing up the release changes the character of the sound immensely. At long release times the Micro Limiter is in gain reduction all the time but the depth of compression is still driven by the input signal. It’s possible to use huge amounts of gain reduction but still maintain articulation on signals like bass guitar. In this respect it’s more flexible than one of my favourites, the dbx 160X The Micro Limiter has another big advantage over its competitors – it’s a stereo device. This means stereo drum ambience, parallel buses and backing vocals are all targets for some serious compression. It will do subtle compression as well as vicious but it excels at the nasty stuff.’ manual here: http://www.synthfool.com/docs/Alesis/MicroSeries_Manual.pdf Can post at cost...

    Thanks for the comments. It is a keeper but I'm bursting at the seams :-) so heavy compromises must be made....
