Hi folks,

I have an LB6 fitted in a Martin OM 21. My problem is that the 6th string is louder than all the others!
As this pickup is a ready made saddle incorporating the pickup, I don't see what I can do to either bring down the volume of the 6th string, or bring up the volume of the other 5 strings. The bottom of the slot is flat.

Any ideas would be very welcome.

Thanks.

It would be good to check for a burr or nick in the bottom edge of the brass chassis. One could cause a high spot under the one string that could increase response to that string and lessen the others by contrast.

hello,

I've got a problem with my old Godin acousticaster which uses an LB6 pickup.
I didn't play it for a while and now, the G and high E trings have really low output compared to others.
the saddle slot is clean. is there a way to save it ?

EDIT // I just removed it to verify again, when slightly knocking it with a nail or mediator for exemple it doesn't make any sound on G and E string.

Best regards.
