Some owners have reported that the Para has enabled them to eliminate the unpleasant artificial sound of the
built-in piezo pickup in their acoustic guitar, but I have had no such luck so far. I have a Takamine CD132SC
Classical with the bass set at +5 (on a five point scale), mid at +4 and the treble at +3, with the exciter set
at 8 (on a 10 point scale) run through the tube channel of a Fender Superchamp XD with gain at 5 (on a 10
point scale), bass at 8, treble at 5 and reverb off for testing purposes. There is no mid range control on this
amp. As the pickup is active, I have the gain on the Para at 11:00. Notch is at 12:00, low at 5:00, mid at
10:00 and treb at 1:00. Despite lots of fiddling with settings, I still hear that trademark electronic buzz noise
that piezos produce the first split second of contact between finger tips and the wound strings, and would not
describe the over-all sound as "warm". I can confirm that the amp and Para are working just fine, getting great
results fine-tuning the tone from my Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin II, which has twin P90s. Suggestions? Thanks!
