View Full Version : Buzz Sound on my LR Baggs Anthem SL pickup

I've got an issue now with my LR Baggs pickup that I purchased back in December of 2010 which is getting a buzz sound on it with my boutique guitar. This is what a guitar tech in Dallas, Texas called a "Mechanical Buzz" transmitting through the mic part of the pickup like something is loose on either the microphone or on the guitar itself. But, if the guitar is played acoustically, I don't hear the buzz. So, it leads me to believe that it is coming from the pickup itself, specifically the preamp.
I've left the tech support department of LR Baggs a voice message asking them to call me back about the Anthem SL pickup and the problems I see being exhibited. Told them to call my cell number.

Acoustic Guitar Forums I'm seeing threads on about the vary same issue I'm exhibiting are calling it a "sympathetic vibration issue". I'd like to get this resolved quickly as I use this guitar for gigs all the time. I can reproduce this very sound on three completely different amps; a 50 watt Ultrasound AG50DS4, a 50 watt Yorkville AM50, and an SWR
Strawberry Blonde 50 Watt amp. All give the same result.
Please help...

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the heads-up on this. We'll get a replacement on its way shortly and keep an eye out for the one coming back.

Will do. And thanks again for honoring the replacement of the pickup. I appreciate your listening to my explanation of the sound I'm hearing from my guitar with the installed Anthem SL and for your patience. As I promised, I'll be shipping mine back to you tomorrow to the address you gave me. LR Baggs really does have a good product in an easy to install and bullet-proof system. I look forward to having it installed once again in my instrument. It's a nice setup.

OK, Bryan, I've shipped the faulty Anthem SL pickup to you via FedEx Ground Tracking # 524328815026196. It should arrive to you within 3 to 4 days. I have the RA number on the front label of the box with attention to "Brian". Yes, I misspelled you name, not paying attention to detail. Sorry... . Thanks again for doing this.
