Hey,

When I play my guitar clean through an amp, for a jazz gig for example I've noticed my high strings are quieter than my low strings.
I know this is to be expected given the mass differences between the gauges etc, but it's annoying because when I do solos, my high notes get quieter and quieter.

Is there anything you guys might recommend such as a compressor perhaps?
I use 9's BTW so maybe I need thicker strings when I do jazz gigs.

Check the height of your pickups, and raise the treble side until you get the desired volume. Should remedy your woes.

^ this. also when u are trying to see if this worked, crank ur amp up real loud. sometimes if u play quietely, the high strings wont come out very well.

If you have humbuckers you can just adjust the pickup screws. Most guitars come with all screws unadjusted and need work.

if you have screws on your pickups and not slugs give the screws a little turn toward the troubled strings.

If the other fixes don't make enough difference then a compressor should do the job.
