Hello! Welcome to Tech In 10 Minutes. My name is James and I am an entrepreneur, tech lover and blogger. I own a few small businesses and have a lot of experience with tech. I created this blog so that I could share my ideas and help others who are not as knowledgeable about technology.
I have always loved technology. I started out with a simple electronics kit when I was 7 years old and never looked back. As I got older, my passion for technology only grew stronger, and today it is one of the things that drives me forward in life.
I started this blog because there are too many people out there who don’t know how to fix their own tech or make their own tech for a fraction of the cost of what it would cost to buy it new. People are often intimidated by technology because they don’t understand it or think that it is too expensive to learn about. This couldn’t be further from the truth!
If you are one of those people who thinks that technology is too complicated or expensive, then this blog will help you change your mind. I want to show you how easy it can be to fix your own tech and make your own tech for a fraction of the cost of what it would cost
Tech In 10 Minutes is a blog about DIY tech. Have you ever wondered how to fix your iPhone screen? Or make an LED light show? Well, these are only some of the few things that Tech In 10 Minutes will show you.
The creator of Tech In 10 Minutes, Tom Shiller, started this blog because he was tired of paying so much money to get his iPhone fixed. He decided to learn how to do it himself, and found out that it was not that hard.
In the future, Tech In 10 Minutes will be adding more and more tutorials on different types of technology.

Crosstalk can be a big problem when wiring up audio signals. This is especially true with electric guitars since they have long unshielded cables connecting them to the amp.
In this post we tackle the problem of crosstalk using an isolation transformer. This is the same method used in professional recording studios and by sound engineers for live performances.
An isolation transformer does exactly what it says, it isolates your guitar from the amplifier. In particular it isolates your guitar from AC mains noise and hum that can leak into the signal cable as it passes near power lines, fluorescent lights, etc.
For our example we are using a cheap Chinese tube guitar amplifier on eBay but any amp could benefit from this modification.
