Have just bought a P8en and plugged it in for the first time. I tried both 1/4 jack and xlr through DI and direct into the PA but get a fuzzy distorted sound with all options. Changed the battery but still have problem. Any clues?

Update on this - sound is clean on individual strings so long as magnetic pickup is zeroed but strumming chords makes a dirty sound even with all the knobs set to zero. XLR also picks up radio stations! Where are those warm sounds folks are writing about? Am I doing something wrong?

Now you discover you live under a high line wire or something. I don't have any suggestions - Oops here's one - does it do this in other places? I used to have a buddy who was a disk jockey. I would go visit him at the late night shift at the radio station. One night for grins and giggles I took a cheap strat copy and a small amp with me. I got huge buzzess and static and cross talk on the Strat. The transmitter for the station was sitting right out back of the building 1500 ft in the air.
