I just received the Pick-up the World, Line Driver Pre-amp as well as the Schatten, Black Box volume controllers.  The PUTW is active and is cutting in and out while the Schatten controller is passive w/out any problems.  The PUTW is louder but already having problems right out of the box.  Both units do not color the sound in any way, the PUTW is $125 while the Schatten is $39.

What would you do, reorder the PUTW or keep the Shatten and maybe buy a seperate DI box? :huh:

btw, I have K&K Pure Western pups.

Hey Rob, they are both volume controllers, the K&K pick-up works fine with the Schatten (passive volume controller) but with the PUTW Line Driver it cuts out&in while I'm playing.  So it sounds like the PUTW Line Driver (active volume controller/pre-amp) has a problem. :UND>
