Probably the iron core is out of place try laying the e string deeper if the sound gets louder de core is out of place maybe you can get in from the bottom part

My RR3 Jackson Guitar has corrupt sound.


It may be the nylon strings are not compatible with your pickup. The pickups rely on varying magnetic fields from the strings to produce the sound- nylon is not magnetic unless doped with a ferrous material.

Either find doped strings, find a way to dope them or switch back to steel.

You can check the pickups themselves indirectly with a soldering gun or tape head demagnetizer held close to them- you will hear the line frequency quite well if the pickup is working.

I get a popping sound when I switch it on or off.... It happens through Trans and Valve Amps - doesn't matter where it is in my pedal chain or if it is on it's own


It sounds like there is a DC bias in the unit. Put a short circuit on the input and then cycle it and listen for the pop when changing state... if it does, then it needs servicing... and POSSIBLY a circuit design change. Looking at typical schematics, about the only problem might be leakage at the input and output coupling capacitors UNLESS you are driving it (playing or having a string sustained during switching). If you have a string still going during switching, you probably will get a discontinuity in the form of a pop.

Just bought a Harbinger HX121M 2" Monitor, from Musicians Friend it did not come with a booklet on how to wire into my sound system it has two 1/4" jacks and a strange round plug about the size...


If you don't know how to connect this... well we don't either because you did not tell us what your sound system is. The larger plug is what is known as a "Speakon" connector and is a fairly reliable speaker connection that is used now. For your use you will PROBABLY use either of the 1/4 inch jacks with a cable from the amp that will drive the monitor(s). If you have multiple monitors you will daisy chain them using the 1/4 inch jacks and SPEAKER rated cables creating a string of speakers with input going into one and an output from the same one to the next speaker and so on...USUALLY you will be limited to two speakers per amp output...

My new Bugera 333 212 combo has a weird "ringing" noise on the crunch channel. The noise can be heard on other channels too, but it is loudest on crunch. The noise is clearly mechanical, (it...


Microphonic tubes can be detected by tapping them lightly with a pencil. I cannot find if this uses a spring reverb, but if it does, vibrating the cabinet will get a clanky type sound from the reverb tank. This MAY use a digital reverb however which is immune to that. Next thing is to make sure your guitar can't "hear" the output sound of the amp because the strings can pick up the sound and resonate feeding back into the amp. You can detect if this is happening by quickly dampening the strings and see if ringing gooes away. You probably need 6 to 10 feet of clearance between the guitar and the amp OR put your body between the amp and the guitar. ALWAYS set sound level at safe levels. Get a sound meter and go no higher than 90 Db. I know a lot of near deaf musicians whose careers are near over because of hearing loss using too high level.

My s5470 does not sustain well at all.also,the bridge pickup sounds ok but lacks ''attack'' in upper register.great guitar otherwise.i use a peavy 5150 60watt amp.


I personally use Seymour Duncan Humbucker pickups, and have never been disappointed. You might want to take your guitar up to a music shop and try it on different amps to see if your amp is your problem, or if it is your guitar's pickups or wiring. You could also try adjusting the height of the pickups until the sound you are looking for is achieved. I have also had guitar cables make a big difference in the sound. Make sure you have a good set of cables, and you may want to adjust the EQ settings of your amp to make up what the guitar lacks.

The Schecter C1 Fr Hellraiser comes with EMG active pickups I believe, did you try replacing the battery? Also unscrew the ends of your 1/4 inch instrument cable and make sure they are soldered properly. I am assuming you are going straight to your amp, not through any pedals?
