    iMix battery compartment won't latch

    I have an iMix system in my acoustic and the battery compartment came loose and will not latch anymore. It looks like there may be a small pin or screw of some sort missing, which is supposed to latch the compartment in place when you change out batteries. Is this an easy fix or will I need to order a new part? If so, is it possible to order such a minor part?

      Hi CAguitarplayer,

      sometimes the pin will brake loose. Please e-mail your address to mike@lrbaggs.com and I will send you one as soon as I am back in the office. We have been at the NAMM show for about a week.

      Thanks,
      Michael Newsom

        I bought a Venue last summer and it works fine except in one situation: when it's powered by a power-supply. When I use a power-supply, there's a noticeable hum. I tried everything: ground-lift, different power-supply, different outlet, different house.

        My unit is still under warranty. Is there something I'm doing wrong or should I turn it in for repairs?

          It depends on the power supply. The Venue's DC input is filtered to prevent noise from a wide variety of power supplies but there are still many that can induce a hum or buzz in the signal. Power supplies designed specifically for analog signal path devices are most compatible with the Venue DI.

          We strongly recommend the 1-Spot power supply made by Visual Sound.

          Power supplies designed or provided for use with digital signal processors or effects are most likely to cause a noise.

            Thanks. I'll be sure to try that. I'll keep you informed...

              Hi, I have a Para Di. I have had trouble finding a y cable to use for the effects loop (I'm in the uk). I would want to have a tuner, eq/boost, a looper and perhaps a chorus in the effect loop. As i can't find a cable, my questions are
              1 Is it ok to put the effects in a chain in front of the DI?
              2 Can you recommend where I can order, in the UK, a Y cable that would be suitable for the effects loop.
              Thanks

                Hi - Gibson SJ-150 in for repairs with a DOA Element. Saddle issues resolved and pickup is now working albeit with excessive handling noise. I wire clamped the pickup at the exit hole under the bridge and still the handling noise is excessive. To give you an example - playing a Dsus4 chord you actually HEAR your pinky finger hitting the fingerboard through the amp. This is a factory install and I did not see a black dot to indicate correct orientation of the element. Thanks for any help you can provide.

                    The optimum search term is "Insert Cable." If you google, go there, click shopping, type insert cable in the search bar and you should get a host of online sellers.

                      If you live in an area with good guitar store options, it may serve you to have the nearest Gibson dealer, or a farther one if they're better, have a look at the pickup installation. If you're inclined to trace the problem yourself, I would assess how close to or far from the hole your wire clamp is, whether it is holding the wire tightly or loosely. If the clip is too close to the hole, it can have less effect on wire microphonics. If it's too far or holds the wire too loosely, about the same.

                        Did you send an email to support@lrbaggs.com? If so, sorry for the delay.

                        If not, the answer for connecting to a 3-conductor jack is:

                        RED to TIP
                        BLACK to RING
                        BARE to GROUND

                        The blue and the clear-ish wires go unused as they were for an optional 5-conductor jack with splitter box that was briefly available as an accessory for the original Duet system.

                          Bryan - thanks for the reply. I am a luthier and was repairing the guitar for the owner. Something seemed fishy with it though since all the wires were in a knot hanging in the middle of the guitar when I first got it. The wire clip is as close as possible to the hole as I could get it with respect to the bracing. Clamped tightly. After that, the rest of the pickup had no real place to be attached since it would not reach the location where I clamped the volume control and battery wires. I wire clamped it to the top and tried to have it as tight as possible. I am considering clamping the pickup in a small piece of foam to isolate it.

                          Again, thanks for any insight.

                            Hi Brooks,

                            In the next to last sentence in your paragraph, you mentioned clamping the wire to the top. Is that a second anchor to the top or the one close to the hole leading to the saddle slot? If it is a second point at which the pickup wire is anchored to the top, it should be moved to either the side or back of the inside of the body. Aside from the one anchor point for the pickup(which is crucial, to be sure), it should not be wire clipped to the soundboard at any other location.

                              Thanks again Bryan - Yes, I did clamp it again to the top. My bad. I will get it clamped to the side after I get in touch with the owner. If that doesn´t get rid of the handling noise (really strong - even when everything was just dangling in the middle of the guitar) is it possible to use foam or something to isolate it better ? Unfortunately we have not had any active distribution of Baggs products here for several years and the Element is not a system that I have seen too much of. I have encouraged the dealer to order several Anthem pickups (which he has done @ NAMM).

                              Thanks again.
