Super hot, but delicious. Gue aja yg gak kuat pedes doyan banget.
I love my new Taylor GS Mini, but I’m not satisfied with its ES Go pickup. Especially the hum/noise. It is explained in Taylor’s website. But I will not take that solution. Instead, I will do some experiments.
- Using DI Box or ABY Box with good transformer, passive or active. In this case I use Radial Big Shot ABY, and using the B output with all switches turned up. It really works to clear the hum and noises.
- The sound of the pickup is muddy. I opened the bottom plate and realized this is a humbucker type. I cut the red wire to make it single coil only. And yes, it works. The new sound is brighter.
- The output seemed too low, but this can be modified easily by loosening up the pickup bracket and adjust the position so the pickup is now closer to the strings.
- To make it better, add an EQ control before amp.
That’s all, not too difficult. And I love my new electric GS Mini sound with standard guitar amp. Sonic-wise, it’s not comparable to piezo pickup, but a lot better than before and still usable for live situations.
