I have a Tobias Growler 4 that lately is sounding like buttwipe. New strings, check. New batteries, check. All controls working, check. Clean fingernails, check. I miss the big, piano-chimey tone I used to be able to get. The current sound is slightly muffled, definitely attenuated, and doesn't get those great clear highs that it used to. It also caused some weird pops recently when recorded.:scowl: I'm looking for suggestions on how to troubleshoot this problem, how to discern whether it may be the pickup or the preamps, or what else to look for. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
