JP6 – Piezo Circuit Question

JP6 – Piezo Circuit Question

Has anyone ever experienced this?

I’ve got a very early JP6 with a piezo. Using the mono out with the magnetic PUs the output suddenly drops and gets very distorted. Not being on the shared or piezo only selection I wouldn’t have thought the preamp/battery would be in the circuit, but after swapping the battery, it did improve alot. But it still seems to have a touch of unwanted dist.

Unless there is some underlying wiring issues shouldn’t the magnetics be independent of the preamp circuit with the proper switch selection on the mono out?

Thanks in advance…
