Spark vs passive pickup
com last edited by
Hi, I plan to use a Spark with a Gretsch G9520E Gin Rickey guitar. It has a passive pickup without tone or volume setting. Should I experience trouble ? Plus, do current Sparks comme with a earth/ground socket ?

@com I have never heard of an amp that required an active pickup. You might have to use more volume, or a pre-amp. But there should be no issue using a passive pickup guitar.
Looks like noise has been an issue for a long time.
I found a video about Positive Grid Creating a "Earth Ground Power Supply"
