Hello there. I recently replaced the pups on my Yamaha TRB with Villex passive pups. They sound great and the hiss that I was getting before is elliminated, but I get a clicking sound when I touch the strings (in some rooms). I have been reading some threads about grounding and sheilding and decided to have a go at adding some extra shielding myself. I just whacked in some aluminium foil and put tape over it to stop shorting. I am not noticing any difference at all. I have been reading this (particularly the large post at the bottom): http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=142892&highlight=ground How far Do I have to go to get rid of the clicks? I don't want to change my playing style. I tried keeping my fingers on the strings at all times but just wasn't happy (I like to go a little crazy now and again). Maybe I could get someone to touch the brige when I record - or string a wire from the bridge to my ankle?... err no, I don't think so.
