Anybody here ever do this? I've got the extra parts lying around and thought about doing this to the 808X in my 8 string just for shits and giggles.
If you've done it with a switch, does it make any noticeable "pop" when switching? Also, I assume the 18volt mod adds a bit more noise to the signal?
I've done it but not with a switch. Its takes some of the EMGness out of them and adds some low mid bloat. Ironically it makes them feel and sound lower gain to me. I dont like it.
With Xs, that have more headroom anyway, I'm not sure what you should expect.
