    Anthem - noise

    Hello, I'm writing from Scotland, I am a luthier. I do and repair acoustic guitars. Anthem just installed in new guitar and found that the noise which comes out of the preamp is not acceptable. The signal is weak. I changed a few batteries, plugged in and connected everything again. Even plugged another output cable. All indications are that the preamp is faulty. Is there anything I can check.

    Hello Kluszewski,
    Can you tell me what you are comparing the output level of the Anthem to?

    The Anthem naturally has a lower output, especially compared to certain active undersaddle-only pickup systems. So low output isn't necessarily an indicator of a faulty system.

    I installed many of these sestems and I know how they should sound. To get a decent level of signal gain must be in position 3 but then the noise level is so high that it is absolutely impossible to use it. I have a small recording studio at home where I record samples of guitars so I know whereof I speak.

    Weird...
    Unless I've already replied to you, I haven't seen it in my email. I've replied to every email in my inbox as of right now.

    Would you mind trying again? I would truly like to help.

    There is a technical problem with this forum, every now and then I transferred to some strange website.

    Our web team has been made aware of the issue. I've been told that they're looking into it.
