Hurry up on the Anthem for nylon (only kidding) I'm looking forward to when you do. I'm having the iMix C installed
next weekend on my DeVoe Flamenco Blanca.
Hi Just wanted to share my experience so far with the LR Baggs Anthem SL Classical pickup. Its the best pickup I have ever used to date on nylon strings. I installed the pickup on a Lester DeVoe Flamenco Blanca guitar and its just wonderful. I've been getting great feedback on the pickup as well by others. If you want to hear a test of before and after how the guitar sounds as well as when the pick up was installed you can go to http://soundcloud.com/v2or/lr-baggs-anthem-sl-classical I am still blown away by how loud I can go with out feedback. Also the mic is very adjustable to your own taste. I run the output to a Apogee One, then into Pro Tools 9 and use the Waves SSL channel strip and a UA compressor, then just a bit of reverb using the Lexicon Hall setting to two QSC K8 speakers and its just great warm natural sound.
How did you justify increasing the size of the end pin hole with and elderly instrument?
I just put in the Anthems SL Classical on my nylon and it sound fantastic. Played with the mic mix adjustment to get it right to my ears and Im also using the PARA DI to adjust a bit of the tone.
Many people will not want to modify vintage instruments at all. For those situations we recommend the M1 passive. If you're willing to wait the M80 will be coming out in the spring. It has a passive/active switch which allows you to pop it in and out easily with no modification. http://www.lrbaggs.com/m80/ <-check it out!
