Adding GT Piezo system to P-Bass.

  1. Hi all

    I'd like to add GraphTech's Ghost piezo saddle & Acousti-Phonic bass preamp to my MIJ 62 RI P-bass (now strung with Fender 9050ML strings).

    I still hesitate how to control 2 pickups.

    Thinking of 3 methods.

    1. Mag vol + piezo vol + mag tone

    2. Master vol + master tone + blend

    3. Master vol + blend: Like Dave251's beautiful electroCoustic bass.

    Please comment pros ad cons of above methods.
     
  2. I think a stacked vol/vol and a tone knob would work just fine. I dont see a need for a new control knob, unless you have 3 already, in which I think that a vol, vol, tone would work perfectly.

    I agree. Stacked volume and tone willbe enough.

    :cool:
