1 rhcole 6 months ago One benefit of belonging to this site that I sincerely appreciate are the suggestions from others who have much deeper knowledge of all things associated with guitar tech and maintenance than me.I love the spanky, chimey sounds of single coils, whether P-90s, Dynas, or HiLos. But, man, the buzzy hum gets on my nerves. I use a noisegate much of the time, so that helps. But there are guitars I won't take out live because I'm afraid a site will have noisy light dimmers, line/RF interference, or other bugaboos that will make the performance an irritant rather than fun.I have tried multiple solutions, including shielding my guitars better, inserting a transformer, and I even tried using the EHX Hum Debugger. The EHX box worked, except for killing my tone! Heck, I even used BATTERY power on everything once (impractical for very long) and I STILL heard some buzz from the pickups.So, I just thought I would toss this out there - is single coil noise just something we have to live with? Could there be some other solution?
