jman64 Posted November 16, 2016 Share Posted November 16, 2016 So today while working on the sound of my 4 cable Helix patches with my tube amp, I came across a glitch I can't explain. I noticed playing that the C note on the 13th fret of my B string was sounding dead. At first I thought I had a fret issue. However I noticed if I did a bend on that note, as soon as the pitch went up a half step the note would start to ring out correctly. Seemed odd, so I experimented more. The same note on different strings ( 17th fret on G, and 8th on E) also was dead. Again as soon as I bent the note it would start to ring out normally. Every other note all over the fret board played fine. I changed to a different patch, and the C note in question rang out normally in all the same positions. Switched back to the original patch, and the C was dead again. Made a new patch from scratch, and the C note was fine. Went back to the original patch and the C was dead. This really has me scratching my head. I played the guitar straight into my amp,and the note played fine, and I don't find the string to bottom out on any of the frets. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Jay Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
