    H2 Piezo high E cutting out

    Hey guys
    Out of nowhere my 20th anni H2's piezo started to cut out the volume on the high E string. You can still hear a signal, but barely. I changed the battery, tried different jack/toggle settings to no avail. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem with my HB II. I have tried different toggle settings, the mix/mag jack, Peizo jack and am getting only a very faint signal off the high E. When I tap on the Peizo with my pick all the other strings "pick-up" except for the high E. Any recommendations - ideas?
    Many thanks

    The piezo bridge uses 6 individual "pickups", one for each string. Sounds like one of those has worked loose through vibration, I dare say it would be a fiddly fix.

    Best thing is to shoot the PTC an email and book it in for repair.

    Exactly................................ I send an older (mid 90s) to the PTC for the very same thing. I believe Shawn replaced the the (one) Piezo P-up & sent it back to me. I have no idea about the cost of that P-up, as I had some other work done as well.
