Default Pitch gauge mod (I know Im prolly not the first...)

Never one to leave anything alone, I decided to modify mt pitch gauge to make it a tad easier to read. Rather than having a blunt plastic nub to read the setting, I epoxied a needle on to the nub so it reads much easier. I know entirley not necessary, but I like to mess with stuff! Now, I just dial the needle to the desired setting and adjust away!

That's a nice mod.

I was just using mine last night to adjust my pitch range to +/-12 (after the recent discussions about giving it more pop) and the needle was hard to see. I turned on more lights but it was still hard to see. I kept meaning to put a white stripe on it but your mod might be even better.

Thanks for sharing,

BruceW
