Mad Catz Fender P-Bass Mod
Nov 22, 2008

Here's somes modifications I made to my Rock Band Fender Precision Bass (wired for 360)

-OEM strum springs were too stiff and would cause fatigue to finger after a while; so they were replaced with ball-point "click-click" pen springs and now the strum resistance is just fine. Thank you Doc_SoCal :-)

-I found the overdrive tilt sensor would activate at a an angle too low for me (I like to hold the bass during normal play at 30-45°). Unfortunatly, the PCB design does'nt allow tilt switch to be angled more so I removed them and weld a single mercury switch backward that would trigger at around 60-75° and that would better suit my play style.

-Almost after 1 year of not-so-heavy-duty usage, upper index finger strum microswitch broke. I had to un-weld the OEM microswitch from the PCB, find an equivalent on the WEB and weld the new part on the PCB to resolve the problem.
- P/N: 401-1745-ND

RB1 Stratocaster overdrive tilt switch mod (wired & wireless)

This album shows my modifications to my 2 Rock Band 1 stratocaster overdrive tilt sensor

-Wired Stratocaster overdrive was too sensitive so tilt sensors were pull a little for more angle before trigging

-Wireless Stratocaster overdrive sensors never really worked so I weld mercury tilt switches instead for instant activation at around 60°
