    hey now,

    not sure if this belongs here or another forum. please excuse my ignorance if it has to be moved. subject pretty much says it all. just curious on what procedures you guys use to attach your pickups to your battery.again im pretty ignorant and have very low experience soldering. i basically twisted the 3 wires together and soldered them. :eyebrow: ive got very low to no output at times. i wasnt sure if others out there used a wire nut or crimped them with those crush connectors or had a specific way of soldering. any insight will be much appreciated. thanks and take care

    I tin the end of each wire, solder them together in line, and use heat shrink wrap over the joint.

    I bet there's more to your problem than the battery connection. What pickups/pre/bass? Pictures?
