Am I crazy? I was thinking earlier today (yeah, I know, big mistake)... could a pan pot reduce output? If so, how and what can be done to remedy this? Example: I have a Modulus with 2 EMG 40DC pickups and a Warwick Fortress Masterman 5 with 1 35DC (modified, of course). They are both running at 18V. The Warwick is loud as hell. The modulus is not. I also have a P bass with a P in it and it's louder than the Modulus and Warwick on 9v! Would the Pan pot have anything to do with that? What if I told you that the Mod has the pan pot working backwards (second Mod I've had like that)? This meaning that turning the knob to the front activates the Bridge PU.
