  • Hey baotloi,
    Welcome to the LR Baggs forum!

    You should be able to use one of the regular 9v (center neg) outputs from the Power Plus 2, with one of the included 5.5 x 2.1mm plugs. The PP2 is already designed to provide the necessary power that the Venue needs, so it's just that simple.

    I know several people who use the PP2 with their Venues right now, and they all have really good things to say about their setups.

    All the best!

    • Thanks Caleb! I'm new to this pedal board thing although I've been playing for about 10 years now. I've been using mainly multi-effects board like Line6 POD system for my electric and recently bought a HD-35 with the Venue Di, Boss DD-20, and a TC Hall of Fame. Let me know if you have any recommendations!

      Thanks for the help!

      • I have the TC Hall Of Fame, and I LOVE it! It's an excellent pedal for Electric and Acoustic guitars. I run my HOF in the Venue FX loop, when I use use it. That way, my tuner stays accurate without needing to disengage the Reverb.

        • Element undersaddle pickup humming

          I just received two Element active undersaddle pickups for two guitars that I own. I installed both, and one of them was humming A LOT, while the other works perfectly. I took both pickups back out, and noticed that on the one that is humming, the small, exposed metal at the end of the undersaddle "string" was missing. I am assuming this is some sort of grounding device? Is this something that I can fix without sending the pick up back...or will this require a swap out?

            • Gig pro trouble

              I have a gigpro since 2010 and it has always worked well . Until today. Now he works for about 10 minutes and then begins to emit a constant high-pitched noise . I hang up and call again and it will work again ( for about 10 minutes )

                Hey jmeuren,
                Have you changed out the battery recently?

                • Input Gain/Level Adjust on VU Meter

                  I just acquired a Venue Unit a couple of weeks ago. This weekend I decided to drag some of my "passive" under saddle piezo guitars out of the closet to try as I bought this unit especially for those. I am a bit confused as these guitars do not register on the input VU Meter even with the gain knob turned fully up *(which produces a very grainy sound; so it has to be backed off a touch).

                  I can get a good sound but I have to turn the Gain up nearly all the way to register on the meter *(Also I notice that even my active guitars even seem pretty low on the meter & I did check the batteries too. If I follow the instructions to set the input level to the green light (yellow blinking sometimes the "quackiness" of the piezos really come through & they sound harsh.)

                  If I just use my ears I can get a very good sound but the VU Meter never shows a light wit the passive or the active pickups.

                  I am concerned with the input metering on this unit since it is only a few days old. Does this sound "normal"?...or maybe I am too picky about these details?

                  • Hey Bizybodi,
                    The Venue actually has a pretty wide gain range, down to -12dB, up to +26dB. So there's a good portion of the knob sweep that actually attenuates the signal. Then a good portion of the gain occurs at the tail end of the sweep. So turning your gain up to full for a passive pickup is actually not uncommon. Depending on the quality of the pickup, you should be able to get clean gain all the way up to the max setting.

                    I always advise the use of your ears over everything else. If you like the sound of a certain pickup with the gain set lower, then set the gain lower. Every pickup is different, and the Venue is designed to work well with just about everything.

                      Thanks Caleb.

                      I appreciate your reply.

                      • PRS Hollowbody II piezo cutting out

                        Hi. I've had a problem for a while now with the piezo cutting out on certain strings on my prs singlecut Hollowbody II (used to be the 3rd string but now it's generally the 6th). I've traced the issue to the ribbon cable that you can get to right inside the f-hole by just gently moving it until the sound comes back. I guess it could also be the connection itself. It's not perfect but I can usually get it going, but only really in a studio setting. It's unfortunately to quirky to use live right now. Any suggestions on whether or not this can be easily fixed or what to do about it? Thanks!

                        • Hey imacnri,
                          Unfortunately, since LR Baggs have a manufacturing agreement with PRS, we can't actually provide parts or support for the products that we make for them.

                          If you are looking for a replacement cable or options on getting it repaired, you will have to talk with PRS directly.

                          • Lyric Classical... sounds intermittent.

                            Hi everyone.

                            I´m new in this forum. I got a problem with my Lyric Classical mic on my nylon guitar. Excuse my english for any mispelling.

                            I have just grabbed my guitar today and started to play and I noticed that the sound goes cut until I play it and then sound gets cut very fast again, as a "gate". It doesn´t continues to sound naturally as it has always been doing it or even fades.

                            I don´t know if this is a low battery issue or a problem in my mic or is it my equipment.

                            Please help.

                            EDIT: MY MISTAKE. IT WAS A BAD CONFIGURED GATER. IGNORE MY POST.

                            • Bad pickup? Traveler Escaper MKII bass.

                              Only left channel works on headphone, and with either headphone or amp extremely loud hum which decreases some when touching output jack plate. Measured ~700 ohms one polarity, ~1500 ohms opposite polarity. Test output directly from piezoelectric pickup to different amplifier gives no sound at all. The preamp is made by Shadow Electronics, and it may have a faulty channel (assuming left and right should both have a signal). I believe the piezolectric pickup is bad. Are there additional tests that could confirm or refute? Is the element pickup available for repair? Thank you. BT

                              • Hey btoews,
                                That pickup has an extremely low output, and a very high capacitance. So plugging it directly into an amp won't give you much signal, even with the volume cranked.

                                If the issue that you're running into is with hum, and it goes away when you touch the jack, then that would indicate that you're running into a shielding issue. If the Element pickup is frayed or cut, then it could cause that kind of problem. It's most likely going to be a problem with the output jack on the whole system though. It's probably a good idea to make sure that the jack and other connections are well shielded.

                                Changing your cables out would also be a good step for troubleshooting.
