Hsp 90 wiring
« on: November 22, 2019, 06:26:08 PM »
I got my new Nantucket hsp90 and it has 3 wires. Bare, black and white? How do I wire it for standard use?
I soldered black and bare together and then to ground and white to the pot, but I don't get any sound, so it seems to be wrong...

Please help, I can't wait to play it :)

I ordered mine with the braided conductor so it was very simple.  I've wondered about this wiring myself.  This is all that I can find on the website about it:

"2 conductor + screen provides the start and finish of the coil and a separate ground, making it easier for series or parallel connections with more than one coil. Braided 2 conductor has a single internal conductor and the braided jacket is effectively the other conductor and used as ground."

I suspect you join black and white together and they both go to hot, and the bare is the ground, you could try that, but I'd send an email to BKP if I were you.  They are very helpful.
