    Arduino Audio Input

    That's awesome, even if it isn't on the guitar itself!I love that body style. Did you build the body yourself? If so, what wood did you use? I'm planning on building mine out of korina with a maple neck. It will be a Thunderbird style.I'm thinking I'm going to have to use two pieces, one for the front, and one for the back, just so I can route out a cavity for all the electronics I'll be using inside of it.

    I'm not worried about depth stop. I'm worried about wire routing, and having big enough channels to acommodate bigger wires such as USB or Cat5.

    Arduino Audio Input

    I'm building an electric guitar, and I want to mount an arduino inside the body that will receive the signal from the pickups and do signal processing on it (such as reverb, delay, distortion, etc...), and pass it to the output jack of the guitar. It will also have some led functionality. My question is can I use the same op amp for an electric guitar pickup signal that you used for the mic signal, and also, is there a way to write code that will do signal processing on audio signals for the arduino? I plan on utilizing an SD card, as well.

    Very cool. I'm building a guitar, myself, and plan on using the arduino as a DSP and LED control. I'm thinking of mounting LED's on the fretboad that are responsive to various frequencies produced by the strings. I'd like to see your guitar when you get it finished.

    Overlapping Tandem Barn Doors

    Thank you!

    Uh oh! I know exactly what you mean. My fishing and guitar playing skills have definitely suffered since my wife discovered Pinterest, and now that she knows about Instructables, I have a feeling I'll never have a hobby again. Lol.

    That's what my wife originally wanted me to get, and I was all for it until I saw how much it was for just the hardware for barn doors. I think the whole thing total cost me around $125 (after I took the aluminum back to Home Depot).

    Overlapping Tandem Barn Doors

    See my reply to lowmant. I tried to find the 4" pulley on the Simms Lumber site, but could only find the 5 1/2" pulley, which is significantly more expensive. The one I got was only around $6. Here's the 5 1/2" one:https://www.simmslumber.com/products/337736

    I looked at Home Depot and Lowes, but neither had a roller that was big enough. They had pulleys, but not open ended, which is what I had to have. I went with Simms Lumber here in Weatherford, TX, and they had the rollers I needed. I did see other barn doors with the garage door pulleys, and I'm sure those would probably be better than what I got. Also, the rollers I used don't have bearings.Great looking barn door, by the way!

    You totally read my mind, jbrauer! That's exactly what I asked my wife for for Christmas!And thank you for the compliment.

    Thank you.I'm really glad we went with them over the glass panes.

  • How to Make LEDs Flash to Music with an Arduino

    I'm wanting to build a custom electric guitar with an Arduino brain inside the body, and led's on the outside that will light up when certain frequencies are passed to the output jack. Is there a way to route those frequencies into the Arduino instead of an mp3 file to light the lights?
