    Ok, so I've been wondering how to wire this. I want to be able to blend, and be able to cut them. I will be useing a demeter pre-amp which is suitable for both piezo and regular magnetic pickups. So how would i go about wiring both of these? Would i use something like.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7347756981&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWA:IT&rd=1
    Or would i do something else? Any ideas?
    I'm useing the ABM brigde with piezo's
    Jazz pups (nordies or suhrs or barts... hmmm)
    Demeter onboard pre amp

    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

    You need a buffer to get peizos to work to thier best, then the buffer output into the pre. I know nothing about the Demeter, except what I just read in the website, but this is my guess;
    - wire two J pups through pots passively and feed that into input 1
    - peizos into input 2 - may still need peizo buffer before preamp input....

    The site blurb says "Active balance control mixes two pickups of any kind (active/passive/piezo)." but whether that means it comes from the factory with different configurations of inputs or the standard inputs have a high enough input impedance for peizos, I dunno. Email Demeter.
