  • Stumbling heartbeat sound from the Lyric

    Dear LR Baggs enthusiasts,

    first of all, sorry, English isn't my first language. :-)

    My Lyric system was round about one year flawless in use since I put it in.
    I play a Taylor guitar, through a few pedals into a BOSS ACS amp. The mic works, the signal is always strong and constant but from one day to another, I hear a popping sound like a dull sounding stumbling heartbeat.

    At the end of the day, after testing my setup with many different batteries and cables, playing directly into the amp with and without the pedals, I pulled the complete system out, clipped a brandnew battery on again, connected the Lyric with a brandnew guitar cable to my amp and... the "heartbeat" is still there..
    The amp surely doesn't have an issue. - When I use the stock Taylor ES2 pickup system, the signal is dead quiet. So it's definitely the Lyric itself.

    I don't know how to continue.. Any suggestions or opinions?

    Stay healthy and best wishes from Germany,

    For anyone else reading this, Andree contacted LR Baggs directly and will be sending the Lyric in for testing.
