Well ir seems that when i combine my bridge humbucker with any other single on my strat i loose a great deal of volume, some one told me my pickup might be out of fase, is that true? How do i fix it?
#2

First thing - It's spelt "Phase".

On-Topic, Try to flip your humby around, And Yes, You just remove the pickup, and turn it 180 degrees.

I'm skeptical as to how much turning it upside down will actually do, its a wiring problem as far as I'm concerned. Try asking in the wiring thread, they'd know. And if it is out of phase, just rewire it using a standard diagram.

ha


but yes, it has to do with the direction of the polarity so a simple fliping the pup around should do it

edit: wiring is not the problem if you did a standard wiring job

lol well your wrong.

but in all seriousness. i've actually had this happen before and that was the problem, so i probably should been a bit more confident.


(btw, when saying your wrong, i'm just joking around so don't take me seriously lol)

No, you'd have to flip the magnet of the humbucker. It's easier to just wire it in correctly.

Swap the ground and mains on your humbucker. Flipping it doesn't put it out of phase, running current through it backwards does.

As far as I'm aware if it's wired correctly, then it doesn't matter what way the pickup sits, it still sounds the same. did it with my Kent armstrong motherbucker. sounded both the same may i put it with wire connection to pickup closer to control cavity or the other side. spinning pickup wont solve out of phase. if the signal is going counter clockwise with the wire connection closer to the control cavity, when you spin it, the signal is still going the same direction round.
