    Default Wireless

    How important is the output of the pickup when being used with a wireless system?
    I can adjust the output of my receiver to vary the how much I overload the input stage.
    I have a PRS Se Custom 24 and am wondering if it is worth putting a new pickup in the bridge position.

    People use all kinds of guitars (and hence pickups) with wireless...I use Fender style guitars, with SD Surfers for Strat and Antiquity for Tele, as well as Joe Barden Danny Gatton pickups, a 6120 with Filtertrons, etc. etc. all with my wireless, and they all work perfectly fine. It's like asking if you need new pickups for a new kind of cable. A wireless may not sound exactly the same as a cable, but all pickups should work with it just fine.

    And welcome to the Forum!

    Thanks for the reply but the thing I am puzzling over is:
    If I install a pickup with a DC resistance of 16K it would drive my pre amp harder than a unit of 8K would giving more distortion.
    Can I use an 8K unit and just increase the output from my wireless receiver to emulate a pickup with a higher output?

    Thanks
