seeking passive rewiring/shielding advice

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by billoetjen, Oct 13, 2005.

  1. Hi -
    I'm in the midst of replacing the p/u's on my passive p/j Ibanez bass. Putting in Dimarzio passive replacement set. Also lining the cavity with copper and replacing the pots with Dimarzio 500 K pots.
    So far, the BAD hum/buzz from the J pickup is gone (thanks I think to the humbucking design of the new pup.
    Now, unfortunately, I'm getting more buzzing from other sources. It disappears when I touch the bridge. Maybe I didn't ground the bridge wire well enough? Should all grounds be tied together at the output jack ground?
    I'd appreciate any suggestions, sites, shared experiences, etc.

    Bill :help:
