Hum on my DiMarzio

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Si-bob, Jul 23, 2002.


  1. I'v got DiMarzio P-style Pup's in my fretless 4. When i touch the pole pieces (usually with my thumb cos i anchor it on the string above what i'm playing) they give forth a horrible hum/buzz, like i said it is only wen i touch the pole pieces. Is this a problem with shielding in the cavity or simply a painful fact about having exposed pole pieces :)

    cheers

    Its a problem with the grounding.

    Get some wiring diagrams and re wire the bass.

    Peace
