"Works with my actives"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have 3 active guitars. 2 - EMG 81/85 and 1 - SD Blackout. Dinky (EMG) and kelly body (SD) have no issues what so ever. Crisp, clean, no interference, hum, or hiss. My Rhoads (EMG) has a hum when not playing. I changed channels and that seemed to help cut down the hum, but was still there. The more i played, the less the hum. Pretty soon, the hum was gone and shortly after, battery was dead. Put in new battery, and hum was back stronger than ever. Messed with channels and spun xvive around until hum cleared up. Then, i started looking at the anatomy of all 3 guitars. Noticed that the rhoads input jack was very close to where the battery cavity was. The other 2 had substantial distance between jack and cavity. So, my guess is, the closer the cavity is to the jack, and angle of jack, the more "interference" you may have. With some experimenting, you can make it work just fine.I love how well these units work, that I bought 2 more for my sons!
