Piezo Wiring Help


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking at piezo pickups at the moment to put in a guitar (a fishman one to be precise), and it says one of their powerchip Blender pots is required so that the magnetic pickups dont short out the piezo pickups, if they're all connected together. But i was wondering if putting a two-way switch in (piezo only - magnetic only) would solve the problem of having to buy one of these? I'm thinking it would keep the circuits seperate so the magnetics wouldn't short the piezo, but I'm only guessing really. I would buy one but the pickup itself is expensive enough, and i don't feel confident enough to put in a battery box.

But anyway, comments appreciated as I'm not very experienced with guitar electronics, so apologies for any terminology errors and things like that.
