: Does anyone know a secret about mounting the Fishman bridge
: pickup? I haven't used mine for a year & now it seems to distort
: easily above "D" on the "G" string. The rest of my system is fine
: - any ideas will certainly help. (I will use it Saturday nite and then
: put it back in storage - I seldom use a pickup therefore
: a new different brand isn't justifiable ) Thanks. U.D.

Have you swapped transducers between strings to determine if one is bad? Sometimes distortion from the A or E is indicative of overloading an amp's preamp from an outboard preamp, but not from the G and D.
