    I just installed an Audere preamp in my URSA six string bass, and now when I move balance from full bridge pickup I can hear a radio station through my speakers, STRANGE!! I am going to reinstall it tomorrow just want to see if anyone had a reason this happen.


    Edit: this was not happening before the install, and I am not using any wireless gear
     
  2. Unshielded control cavity and/or wiring.

    Accidentally using a speaker cable instead of a guitar cord.

    What station? Mine was some 24/7 Mariachi band or something. I'm not even sure it was an FM signal; it might have been AM straight from Mexico; who knows...

    Yep - think that one's 1400AM, Radio Fiesta! My old guitarist's half stack used to get either that or 1580 - Radio Disney. Which was awesome :)
