    Hi people,

    recently just purchased a second hand trb5pII, realising that the piezo volume make no difference to the overall sound either turn all the way to the left or right. How should it affect the tonality?

    Any ideas? I haven't test changing battery.

    Thanks in advance

    It should make a lot of difference. You'll get a ton of string noise with it turned up (and a lot more high-mid bite). You can roll off the treble control to get rid of some of the string noise. Maybe have a tech check to make sure the piezos are connected.

    By the way, what top did you get?
