I tried putting a switch in my SG but it added hum. I noticed Next Gen Guitars sells a stutter switch. Does anyone know how to wire the switch so it won't hum or change my guitar tone? I have two humbuckers. Thanks
It was some time ago, and a friend was doing the wiring. He did try a number of wirings to get rid of the hum and the click. It is a small circular momentary switch mounted on the pickguard. The issues I had seem to be pretty common.1) Did your switch disconnect/reconnect the signal flow in series, or did it simply connect to ground?
2) Where did you situate your switch?
3) What sort of switch did you use?
Ideally, a stutter switch should function pretty much like a noise gate that gates on finger-command. And the vast majority of noise gates simply insert a very low-resistance path to ground so that the entire signal goes to ground. That is also how the vast majority of amplifiers "cancel" the onboard reverb.
