Whether or not you believe, please help.

Some of you may remember my "woohoo, let's build a golden bass"- thread from the projects and whatnot- section. Anyway. everything was truly golden, until..

I went to rehearsal and plugged it in. No sound. Best I could get out of it was a faint sound. The sound came on normally when I had it plugged into my Rat, but without it, no. nada. not a damn thing. I tried it with a guitar and it worked just fine.

To clarify, this is the problem:

Bass---->Amp=No sound/very quiet
Bass---->Rat----->Amp=Normal awesomeballsound.

What gives?

What are you plugging in to?
I had a bad solder joint on a pickup and as a result it would give decent output into high impedance and the signal would practically disappear into a low impedance (e.g. HH solid state). The RAT appears to have 500K input impedance (1M||1M) which is reasonably high.

Cheers, Shortscale (Well, NickS & Speedfish). It just so happened to work and now I have 100% operating bass on my hands.

I even went as far to bitch about it to Seymour Duncan. I unleashed so much fury (politeness) at them that they'll know better the next time.
