    Hi All!
    Have been told that I need to shield my MM4 as it will reduce the excessive pickup hum that the bass is giving off . . . more so than these basses usually do . . .

    Can someone tell me , how to go about this, why it works etc . . . i am gonna drop iot into my nearest shop to see can they do it, i just wanna understand what its all about . . .

    Thanks!
