Anthem Batt end pin problem
I had a tiny problem with my battery end pin and wire.
While playing the bag came loose and dropped down towards the strapjack resulting in yanking the battery connector wire and snapping it at the endpin on the pickup.
I have taken out the endpin and now there is some wire stuck in one side and I can't seem to remove it with a pair of tweezers. Is there a replacement I can buy locally (malaysia) or from LR Baggs?
Hope you could help me out here...
I apologize for the delay.
Do I understand correctly that the system's battery lead was damaged or broken?
If so, that should not be a hard part to find. If you have trouble locating an equivalent in your locale, please email your mailing address to [email protected] and I'll send a replacement battery lead for the endpin preamp.
The cable was damaged and I can find a replacement for the cable but not the endpin because I can't seem to remove some of the lead/wire that was caught inside the endpin.
Maybe I can upload a picture of the damage? Maybe you can advise me further from thereon.
If you can, please post a photo here or email it to [email protected]
Venue D.I. Effects Loop Noise Issues
I recently purchased a Venue D.I. and I am having very bad ground hum problems when I use the effects loop. I actually returned my first Venue D.I. thinking that it was broken yet I'm having the same exact issues with my second Venue D.I. The lift helps a bit but there is still audible noise and I can't really use an amp with it at all. When I don't use the loop everything is totally silent and great. I need to be able to run the D.I. output to an amp and also send XLR from the Venue D.I. to the house.
I have been using the Para Acoustic D.I. for over 5 years with an insert cable, the same effects, and zero noise issues.
Do you have some suggestions as to how I should go about trouble-shooting this? I really want to make the Venue work because the overall sound is amazing. But I also really MUST be able to use the loop or it's a deal-breaker.
Thanks for your help. You guys make amazing stuff.
M1 Active pickup question:
I have two M1 Active pickups on Martin guitars and I would like to ask a question.
I know the instructions say to disconnect the cable lead from the guitar when not in use to save the life of the battery.
Can I leave the cable lead connected at the guitars and unplug the cable at the amplifier.
Would this not be the same thing?
Look forward to your response.
HAVE A GREAT DAY.
With the M1Active, the 1/8” output jack is a RTS and the provided output harness intended for mounting in the guitar’s tail block is also TRS. The M1A’s internal preamp doesn’t get switched on until you plug into the 1/4” output jack with a MONO instrument cable.
Because of that, you need to unplug from the 1/4” output jack in the guitar in order to switch the preamp off.
Leaving the MONO instrument cable in the guitar should keep the preamp on and consume the battery in approximately 1000 plugged-in hours.
Here's a follow-on question from our posts on 10/24/2011. The install went very well in the Fender and the Anthem system sounds super. I went ahead and mounted the endpin jack in the tail block and it worked just fine. I'm now the proud owner of a new Seagull Maritime dreadnought and would dearly love to transfer the Anthem system over to the new guitar. I won't be playing the Fender much anymore and buying a new Anthem system for the Seagull would be pretty spendy for my budget. So how do you get an Anthem system out of a guitar without damaging either the system or the instrument? The adhesives used to hold the components in seem pretty mighty.

Reason: Revised Seagull guitar name
If it's the standard Anthem preamp unit with its three adhesive pads, our best recommendation is to push down on the front corner closest to the fingerboard and very carefully filet through the adhesive pad with an exacto knife. The adhesive is strong but the foam is not too dense to be easily cut. Harder to tear, though, so I wouldn't just try to push harder on the corner. Once that corner's adhesive is cut apart, do the other front corner. Now, you can push slowly down on the front corners with enough leverage to gradually separate or tear through the larger adhesive pad on the back end of the preamp. When the preamp is separate from the top, work at any remaining adhesive pad material with your fingertips. It should come off fairly easily.
