  • IBeam passive weak on first and second strings

    Hello,

    I've got an IBeam Passive which has been installed in an OM for years, probably 2001 or so, installed professionally.

    It provides a really good warm sound but it's always been weak on strings 1&2 since installation (I'm pretty sure that the tech who installed it did some experimentation with location bc the package does not have the full complement of adhesive strips).

    I can correct for the string-to-string imbalance with a good preamp (using a Raven, and boosting treble), but I'd like to know what to do, if I can manage to get it detached (another concern - it's been on there for a long time), to improve treble response.

    thanks

    Hey Matt H,
    Moving the pickup over a little bit is probably the best way to try and get a better balance from your guitar, The adhesive should still come off pretty clean, even though it's old.

    If you need to get some additional adhesives, shoot me an email at [email protected], and I'll see what I can do!

      Hello Caleb,

      i moved the IBeam a bit less than a centimeter towards the treble and it's much better.

      thanks for your advice!
