  • Anthem breaking up with volume load

    Hi there,
    I had an Anthem professionally installed recently. It worked in a few practice runs, but on trying live, and now in any practice setting, the sound breaks up on louder strumming/picking.
    I have taken the strings off and re-attached the cable ties/replaced dried adhesive, and checked all the connections are sound (they are). I have also replaced the battery (Duracell). Any ideas? Many thanks, Hugo

    PS. I imagine the pre-amp is struggling with the signal amplitude, as this affects both the microphone and the under saddle piezoelectric pick up. I will try another battery brand in the meantime. Thanks for your help, in anticipation

      Hey Hugo,
      Thanks for posting.

      Does the noise happen as soon as you plug in? Or does it take a few minutes before the noise kicks in?

      Also, are you using a regular copper-top or a different Duracell?

      Let me know and I will help however I can.

        Okay, answered this myself
        It was a defective Duracell Plus battery. Switch to GP Ultra worked

          Thanks Caleb, really appreciate your reply. All fixed now. Anthem sounding superb, totally capable of handling full tilt strumming/picking without any problems. Best wishes, Hugo
