Anthem causing static and crackling in my amp speaker(s)?
I just had a luthier install the new anthem system in my custom Mark Kett 000-13 Fret and its sounds fantastic except...
I started to notice a static crackling from the 12" speaker in the Genz Benz Acoustic amp I own. I thought it was the amp and cleaned all the pots and inputs, but its still there.
I just got a Roland JC-77 and I played out on Friday and again noticed the same crackling coming from the 2-10" speakers.
I checked all the cords etc and then plugged in my Morgan Concert with the LR Baggs iMix system in and no noise. I tried another guitar, a CA with a fishman and again, no noise.
It's now quite probable that it is coming from the Anthem ( I have the adjustable version, not the SL)
Has anyone experienced this problem? Could improper installation cause this? The pickup is amazing and I would love to solve the issue so I can use it this weekend.
PS: The problem is intermittant and sporadic. It's OK and then it starts to crackle, stops, then starts and goes for a while, then stops etc.
I would appreciate any input the members may have.
Crackling while not playing
I have had the Anthem system in my Collings D2H for over a year and I'm just now noticing static that happens when the guitar is plugged into any sort of amplification. The noise is not associated to playing, movement, etc. If I simply plug the guitar in and turn the volume up anywhere past off, I can hear it. I've replaced the battery and it's still there. What would be causing this? Nothing has changed on the guitar since the Anthem system was installed. Why would it now start making noise like a bad tube amp and more importantly, how do I get this fixed?
