Hi psarkissian, happy new year! Thank you for being such a great moderator and for all you do to support the community!!
I have a JTV-69 that has a piezo saddle with a low output on the 1st string. By contrast, the saddle for the 6th string is very hot. Not a big issue as I routinely set the string volumes per preset in my Helix floor (see attached photo for typical settings). I have been considering setting the global string volumes via HD Workbench because my other JTV-69 does not have this issue. But then I had another idea, which is why I am reaching out to you.
I wonder if I could swap the saddles for the 1st and 6th strings to better balance the string volumes? If so, how difficult it the procedure? (I am fairly competent at soldering and repaired a broken saddle wire on my old Variax 500). Are there differences between the saddles themselves?
Any knowledge or advice you'd be willing to share would be greatly appreciated.
Again, thank you for all you do!
