I was just thinking that, thank you so much for the help!
The Anthem does require a traditional saddle to get the best sound. So I wouldn't recommend trying to install it under the existing saddle pickup. You may want to look at the Lyric. The Lyric is similar to the Anthem, but it doesn't have an undersaddle pickup. So if you don't want to remove the current electronics, it would be a much easier installation, if you went with the Lyric.
Hi, i have a problem regarding the Anthem mic pick up and my guitar and would hugely appreciate your advice.
I have an Ovation Celebrity CSE 24, and like most ovations it has a bridge plate pick up which also acts as a saddle.
I was looking to get the Anthem in hope to drill another input jack and install the system whilst keeping the existing pick up i have, but im not sure if the transducer that is illustrated to fit under the saddle in the Anthem manual will be able to fit under my guitars bridgeplate pick up/saddle, and if not is there anything i can do as the pick up is metal and im unable to sand it down as the installation manual suggests?
