    Default Axis Bridge Pickup Microphonic - Help

    It seems to have become microphonic. I removed it and potted it as you can find on various websites out there, and it helped some, but it's still there. I'm thinking since the pickup is not 'covered' and is open, when I remove the pickup from the wax it's kind of running out of the coils and nothing is staying there? I probably need to re-pot it and take it out and somehow make sure I keep the pickup staight up to make sure the wax stays between the coils until it cools pretty good, eh? Any suggestions?


    Thanks
    Chris

    What tubes are you using in your amp?

    I'm not sure. It's a Marshall AVT50 with one internal preamp tube.

    Thanks for the reply
