    So I've been using a K&K 2 channel mixer/preamp for my bass max pickup and clicky before it runs to my amp. Last gig I had trouble getting the clicky loud enough, but the bass signal was strong. I think I remember this happening just before I needed to replace the 9v battery. Is the clicky the first thing to go when the battery starts to die?

    I don't think so. Did you check to make sure the transducer hasn't come loose from the underside if the fingerboard? Even a little gap will really mess with it.

    Positioning of clicky pickup is finicky. Experiment with only the clicky pickup volume up and move the pickup until you find the spot that makes you happy.

    Yep, looks like I just needed to get the clicky pressed on to the fingerboard better. Thanks for the insight.
