Yamaha Compass Series pickup problem
Hope someone can shed light on this.
I have a 12 yr old Yamaha Compass semi-acoustic and recently started using it again in gigs but the sound is now heavily distorted. I've been told it's either the battery or the pickup needs replacing. Now I replaced the 9v battery which made no difference but after I tried the new battery I tested it on a battery tester strip that came w the battery and it was almost dead!
Could the gtr be bleeding the battery at an excessive rate?
any help welcome:)
