CHANGING TO 18V

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Russy, Aug 26, 2002.


  1. I love my emg pickups would not trade them for anything else.I have them for about 10 months and will soon be connecting another 9v battery to the existing one.Is there anything I should beware of like battery life or hissing.Any of you regret doing this.

    I look forward to the tonal improvement though.

    What are you talking about? Are you going to just splice in a second 9v to the original? What would this do, add to the signal leaving the bass? I might need to try this :D


    What bass are you planning to do this to? I'm sure that you've checked, but is there enough room for the second battery?
     
  3. I have the new cort action bass and yes there is space for another battery.

    As sad as it may seem, that is our claim to fame. Thanks for the response, I really appreciate it. Do you just splice in a second batery?

    I managed to fit two 9v batts in my jazz. Didnt notice much of a difference, but it couldnt hurt!!
