Need some help....

Got my OBEL cables the other day. Plugged in my new build, and everything basically works. OBEL is - for me - complicated, and a ton of wires, so the first hurdle is always, is the main circuit working. Seems to be...Obel on/off etc....

Also, coil taps working.

But the output is off...quieter than these seymour duncans should be....and slightly microphonic-ish.

Something is wrong.

Just opened it up, re-did a few ground joints. Checked for a short, couldn't see an obvious one....

Ug.

Any ideas?
