Post subject:  Toaster pickup problem ...


Today, as I plugged my Rick 360 into my Deluxe Reverb, I noticed that the output of the bridge pickup was very low ! Everything was fine yesterday ...

My Rick is a 2003 360 that I fitted with 7.4 toasters.

The sound of the bridge is very thin, the output is terribly low and the sound is kind of fuzzy. I thought it might be a bad contact or solder but I made a quick ckeck and everything looks fine ...

Can a toaster turn faulty like this ? Could it be a faulty pot or cap ?

I need your help !!!

Thanks a lot.

Hi sorry if this seem silly! But double check you are plugged into mono input, it's easy to plug into stereo by mistake. When you plug into the stereo with a mono cable one pickup will cut out

It could also be a problem with the mono input assembly which is an easy fix, there is info on this site if you try a search

But get back if your having no luck

Thanks a lot for your help jbudweiser !

The problem happens when it's plugged in the standard output and also with the stereo one.

I'll try to double check the assembly, solders and pots ... I hope it's nothing serious !

Thanks a lot again.
