    Hi,

    I have 2 basses with EMG products in them and I am getting an ultra high pitched noise from them.

    One bass has (2) P-style EMG's and the normal preamp with tone control and the other has a passive pickup with an EMG-BQS preamp.

    I have not had a chance to put the basses on an analyzer but I would guess it is a white noise above the 12Khz range. On the dual-P-style bass it's there on either pickup. There is no extra active EQ.

    I've checked the environment and everything around. Noise is present through a preamp, headphone amp, amp setup, etc.

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks!!
