I don't really know electronics, so please excuse my lack of probably even basic knowledge
Ive modified a guitar, with SP3T/DP3T switches, which connect guitar pickups in different configurations (series/parallel/combinations/phases etc.). i used Mini toggle switches. everything is passive - no active electronics.
so, i have a new idea to make a 'computer' controlled version of the same thing (maybe with raspberry pi, or something, i did not think about the 'controlling' part yet).
but i need SP3T relays - and here i need help - there is so many types - most of them are industrial stuff, big bulky.
Can you recommend, or guide me to what type of relays i should be looking for? even proper naming for the stuff i'm looking for will help (googling SP3T relay does not help...)
- i think that i need physical connection, not solid state (its just my guess) - i think that i want a good old mechanical connection here because the switches will be connected to a pickup, so sound quality is important, and i guess solid state may harm the quality...
- i definitely need 3 positions - ON-OFF-ON
- i think i want it to be latching (i don't want to keep applying voltage to keep the switch in ON position)
- i believe it better to get some low voltage activated ones (idk - 5 volts or less?) i don't think battery powered controller (whatever it will be) will have enough oomph.
Thanks in advance!
