Adjusting poles

The computer recording method is really good. I used a very thin/flexable pick and recorded multiple times. When looked at the recordings I adjusted the poles that were constantly different compared to others.

I think its a great way to start(!) adjusting pickups cause ideally the responce gets as flat as it can. Mine were bassy so it really opened up the sound, specially chords sound better than ever.

I'm going to play like this a few days before I adjust pickup heights to personal taste.

Re: Adjusting poles

No reply's but update anyway

After a little more test I figured using the everyday pick with natural picking technique is a better idea but needs lots of samples to be certain.

Probably because I use a jazzlll, after adjusting I lowered the treble sides little to my taste. While adjusting I also tweaked the angle of the pickup so a side pole won't be too high.

Whats interesting is I noticed the pole heights are very similar to my intonation setting differences on the bridge (naturally, D string pole is the highest)
