dead pickup

Recommended Posts

G string won't give any sound to piezo pickups. Enjoyed playing my new Variax. Make friend to Helix and trying out Workbench HD. After two days the G string would not give any sound.

Long time repair service. After 30 minutes trying at home the same string turned off dead. Tried some workbench HD too.

 

Is there any known software problem in this way?

" Is there any known software problem in this way? "--- No.

 

Take a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol, a couple drops onto the piezo.

Let work in, then blow it out with some canned air. See if that clears it up.

 

If that doesn't fix it, then it will need to be checked out at a Line 6 authorized service center.

I agree with psarkissian - I used to get faint or "clunky strings" apparently due to dirt or oxidation in the saddle where the piezo element sits.

Yes. The saddles serve as a chassis ground for the piezoss, if it get gunked up it can result

in attenuations and intermittencies.

I tried some loosening the strings, shaking, blowing through the saddles but it did not help.

Before loosing warranty by experimenting it now gets back to the guitar shop.

Now it's starting to sound like a failed piezo.

Make certain your product is registered in your account, then log a Support ticket,

and they will go over the options.
