blakeish Posted December 16, 2005 Report Share Posted December 16, 2005 Well playing my guitar on a Fender Princeton 65 or whatever it is sounds okay, the hum is almost manageable. Now when I hook it up to my brother's Peavy Ultra something or other, 100Watt head with very high gain modes, the hum is louder than most anything else. So I'm ripping out the wiring and doing it all again, reSHIELDING the cavity and taping up any bare wire I see, anywhere. Also, this will give me the opportunity to correct the upside down and backwards controls..........knobs turning op directions and flipped from the bridge/ neck positions i wanted originally. so it was alllll great until i plugged into a nicer amp. then i just got angry and p*ssy. So i bought a EMG Select from stewmac for the bridge.........depending on how the holidays go, i'll buy one for the neck, or a bit pricey-er one and then just replace both, yes. I figure my current mighty mites are bottom of the barrel.....i doubt any part of them is shielded at all, anywhere. So if reshielding the cavity (yes gregP, i know, i shouldnt have ripped it out in the first place, hehe) and throwing in a pickup "shielded and epoxy sealed for microphonic free performance" would probably get rid of a hum that overpowers most of the volume of the entire guitar on a gain channel. hell on that amp even the clean channel had a good amount of hum. no buzz, just big thick monotonous hum. sound like a plan fellas? a reshield, pickup replacement, and rewire. that's my plan. (also, think I could somehow shield that other mighty mite myself somehow? disassembly and tweaks?) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
