I’m thinking about taking some measures to slightly brighten up the pickups on my EC256. I’ve lowered the pickups, raised the polepieces, and like what I’m hearing. But, I think the bass is just a tad over-powering - and also other frequencies could used a bit more definition.
So here’s my thought . . . I read a few threads about the de-mud mod, and it sounds like a it’s worth a try. I’m thinking about doing it to the coils NOT being used when I'm in split mode (since I love that sound). So a few questions:
Has anyone done this successfully?
What cap value is best for this? I’ve read .0047uf works well.
Where would I place this to only affect the coil added in humbucking mode? Across the non-grounding terminals at the push-pull switch for each pickup?
Since I’d be affecting the frequency response of just one coil, would I increase hum in humbucking mode?
Thanks for any help.
