Okay, for all you techies: 1. I've got a Fender Jazz Bass Plus V from the early '90s, and I discovered it wasnt's very well shielded internally, thus giving a bit of the old 60 Hz hum. I'm planning on just buying some copper foil tape (whatever the width) and after removing all the components inside, just run that stuff back and forth until it completely covers the inside and back cover. Is it necessary to attach a soldered wire to the tape for connection to ground, or will the fact that the controls will be resting against it provide enough of a proper path? 2. I've got a Hartke 7000 in great shape that I use as a backup for and Eden WT-800. The only thing is, the two amp sections in it are not bridgeable. I primarily play through an 8 ohm Eden 410 XLT. I've spoken to one tech who said it'd be possible to convert it so that it could be, but does anyone here know of anyone ever doing this? It sure would make a good amp a whole lot better.
