    I've only ever tried making my own crossover a few times, and depending on the equipment you have, it can be really difficult to get a usable sound. In theory, you should be able to dial in a pretty sweet sound, but again, it depends on what you're using for EQ, and where you set your crossover. If I had a stereo setup, it's probably something I would play with.

    Caleb, would you recommend a crossover for mic to magnet/transducer.

    A problem may have developed over time. It's hard to say.

    I got your email. I'm responding to it now.

    The customer was advised to return the Lyric to the shop that it was purchased from after some additional troubleshooting.

    I never heard back from him after that.

    Unfortunately, most active systems require 3 different jack contacts in order to correctly operate (signal, switch, and ground). Since the Lyric only has two contacts available, only passive pickups are compatible as a second source. The Ribbon Transducer, cannot be run as a passive pickup due to it's extremely high capacitance. You would need a passive magnetic pickup, contact pickup, or high output undersaddle pickup in order to get the best results.

    I hope that helps.

    Question on Lyric Ring Out

    Originally posted by Caleb_Elling View Post
    Hey JLittle,
    The Lyric does use a TRS jack, but it is not wired to send a balanced signal. The Ring contact on that jack is designed for the addition of a second pickup source to the Lyric, for stereo output. So you can add a passive magnetic or passive Piezo pickup to the Lyric's jack.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks.

    Lyric Output

    Hey Jeff,
    The Lyric is a low impedance output, due to it's built-in endpin preamp. The actual output impedance is right around 3.6k Ohms.

    So you should be able to plug into the guitar input or the mic input on most acoustic amplifiers, without any noticeable alterations in tonal response from one to the other. The guitar input should produce a louder signal though.

    Yes, I tried new battery. No effect.

    Hey Swapik,
    I can definitely hear what you are talking about in the sound sample. The first thing that comes to mind is the battery. Have you tried a different (new) battery yet?
