Hi l have a new psr s970 and at the to same time l bought a Taylor Baby with piezo pickup built in. now the problem l have is no matter what l do every time l try to get the guitar to connect to the s970 I get a sound like an ear loop, l have tried different plugs even tried it in a different home. the gain is low and the switch on the rear of the par s970 is set to Guitar. does anyone have any ideas how to get a good sound out of the keyboard Oh when l turn the guitar on for the tuner the sound on the keyboard goes off

ready to pull what little hair l have out lol
regards
allan

Probably the piezo output is too low.

Hoping you have a guitar Amp which has seperate send and receive sockets.

If you do feed the guitar into the Amp, turn the gain down to zero and take a lead from the send and plug this in to the Yamaha.

Switch eveything on and see what happens, turning the gain up until the Yamaha gives you a decent sound level.

What you are doing is using the pre-amp of the guitar a,p to boost the signal from the piezo pickup to a level that the Yamaha accepts.

Or take it back to where you bought it from and see how it fairs when plugged into other keyboards in the shop.

Why not try the Amp thing I suggested, if it is then OK you know its the piezo output then it probably would be better and cheaper swapping the guitar
