    I bought an Audere Pro Z preamp on a whimto have an interesting project. Gutted my six string, but I'm having issues getting it working - I followed the instructions exactly - but there is simply zero sound coming out. The LED will light up blue when I place my input jack in.

    I shielded the bass with conductive adhesive copper tape and taped in a guitar string linking the pickup cavities to the control cavity. I have the cavity going to the output ground and the brisge ground doing the same.

    I soldered the pickup hots to the individual wires mentioned, and soldered the pickup grounds together, and then to green/white, as instructed.
    Yet: no sound.
    Is it simply my bad soldering? Am I missing something stupid?

    I'm sure they're probably there but you never know.....I don't see any battery wires.

    The battery is there! The black wire is connected to one of the output jack terminals to the battery.

    Check the output jack connections.(power is correct since led flashes)

    It took some brainstorming, but on a whim I decided to swap the hot and battery wires on the output jack - leaving the center ground - and it worked absolutely perfectly. Weird.
