Post Unnatural Distortion/Overdrive
Hey All,

Last time I played my NS/Stick, I encountered a rather unusual overdriven sound. Whilst I love some good overdrive, it was alarming - this has never happened before! I killed my pedals and checked the gain on my amplifier, so I know it was some other factor causing this ill sound. I'm going to try to change the batteries tonight, but in lieu of that working, I'm not sure where to go next.

Any ideas would be welcome!

Best,
~Nick "Klaus" G.

I was going to say batteries before I finished reading your post. EMGs will distort if the battery voltage gets too low.

So did the battery change help?

excellent. Don't forget to unplug those cables for your ACTV pickups boys and girls.
