Hum On Diy Piezo, Better Ground?


Recommended Posts

I built a piezo classical style bridge, one piezo per each string.

I wired it directly to a mono jack (no pre amp yet, runnign tests)

I am currently getting a hum. this is on a nylon guitar, so only the 3 low strings are grounded.

the hum stops when I touch the bottom 3 strings.

Will running a ground shield around the lead wires remove the hum?
