If you are using a mono (2 contact) guitar cable then the output from magnetic & piezo pick-ups should be mixed together. If you are using a stereo cable (3 contacts - tip, ring sleeve) then it will be stereo with one signal sent down each core of the cable with common/ground on the sleeve.
If you are using a stereo cable into a mono amp socket it is possible that a short is occurring, which would cut the signal. I would also check your cable for poor/ shorting connections. The signal level could also drop if the pick-ups were out of phase with each other.
For more information on balancing the levels between the pick-ups see the user's manual here

My Ibanez acoustic electric has very weak volume and makes a constant white noise hiss when plugged into an amp or sound system. Batteries are new as is the pre-amp and under saddle piezo. Ideas?


It will be either the saddle pickup or the guitar pre amp. If you unplug the pickup and the hiss is gone, there was your fault. Otherwise fit a known good pre amp.

What is the impedance on the devices? It sounds to me like the amp and the pickups are not rated for each other.

The switch for blending acoustic to regular pickups is not functioning properly


Hi,

Apart from the Guitar Brand a common issue with electric guitars is in this switch, 90% of this problem goes away with a good cleaning spray while other 10% is due to a loose wire connection at the switch solder block.

Humbucking pickup not working


Did you solder the wires to your plug well?
Did you place the pickup as in the manual?
Did you connect it to the preamp?

Usually the pickups for acoustic guitar need preamps to work with guitar amplifiers because the signal they produce is low.

Where to buy TP4T pickup


You can try repair it. They are pretty basic. I would look for poor solder connections, and reflowing all solder joints in it would be prudent.

The hum is likely from a gain stage with a bad solder joint on the input isolation capacitor. Also check other wires and check for bad solder connections on the pickup connections as well. It can even pick up hum through a bad shieid/ground connection in the jack on the guitar

The output of this is fairly low. Do make sure you have steel strings rather than bronze for magnetic pickups like this. Make sure this pickup is oriented per the instructions.

I run a pod HD 500 into the amp and It breaks up, like there is a blown speaker sometimes.


The Marshall is a super clean acoustic amp.

The POD is overloading the amp.

Try the electric guitar input and keep the gain on the amp down, keep the EQ level and use the POD and the end volume to adjust the final volume.

The normal inputs is for a low output acoustic pickup - the POD is a high output electronic source.

Start with the Marshall gains low and get the clean sound good, then work on the gritty sound.

The amp is voiced for a sweet clean sound - if you want grit'n'ball change to a 50w Marshall valve head and a 4 X 12 cabinet.

This may be strictly magnetic pickup from nearby sources of transformers, ballasts or other motors that generate these magnetic fields. Humbucker pickups have hum cancelling windings that PARTIALLY remove the hum. Wires from pickups to other components should be twisted to help cancel the problem.

What should be the height of the pickups on my sheraton 2?


Pickup height on electric guitars is an oft debated subject. It's more about personal preference, ..BUT there is a bit of science involved , and here is some real simple "String Theory" for electric guitars. Your pickups are magnets essentially, with little winds of copper wire - this is how a transducer (pickup) picks..up (hence PICKUP) the sound of the strings. Strings are steel , most brands have Steel wrap around a Nickle core, ..it is ALL attracted to magnetics. You've played with magnets before , right? What happens when you put a magnet close to metal? It...PULLS it , right? Now , here's the deal about THAT , for guitars. The closer you get a vibrating string to the pickups , the more signal the string will produce , BUT if you get TOO close, the pickup will start pulling on the string too much (remember..magnetics) and that will reduce the amount of sustain on a string(s), and may even hamper actual tuning depending how strong the pickups are. Of course there is the "Duh" factor - having your pickups so high that your strings actually rub them as you play , ...don't do THAT! Best advice: Keep the pickups about mid-way. Not high enough to cause any noticeable problems, but not too low to sink them below the pickup rings (the plastic rectangulars that surround the pickups.
