My friend installed a new fishman pickup in his acoustic last week but it's not really picking up any of the treble strings at all,it uses a piezo which runs under the saddle.Any idea of what would be causing this?he gigs with me in a band and it's a bit frustrating because I hear is this shit bottom end for the past two gigs.Any help would be gladly a great appreciated by not only him but me also,thanks guys.
Is he running it into a guitar amp?
Can you confirm this just by hearing the guitar alone (not with the band)? My guess is an installation problem. If it seems to be working properly, I would then look at a good preamp with a good EQ.
No it's into a mixing desk 100 percent of the time.
Sounds like an installation issue.
