I had a couple questions please... First, I have a friend who is a luthier and an authorized dealer of a competitors product. I am thinking of trying to convince him to also become an authorized dealer of LR Baggs products because I want him to do my future installs. =) What does one have to do in order to become an authorized dealer for LR Baggs?
Secondly, I have a particular instrument in need of a pickup called a bandolin, and it's from Ecuador. It has 15 strings, in 5 course of 3 strings each, and it's a little larger than a mandolin with a decent sized soundhole. It's tuned to these pitches: E5 E4 E5, A5 A4 A5, D5 D5 D5, F#5 F#5 F#5, B5 B5 B5. Wiki it for a better idea please. Anyway, I was thinking about using the new Lyric for this. Think that's a good idea?
So far, I am excited about this brand, and looking into using a Five-O on a S1 Martin Uke soon... Wish me luck.
If your friend wants to call our office at 805-929-3545, and speak with Christian, we can most likely get him set up. We don't have a lot of requirements, but we do need to verify that he has a retail business as well as a few other things.
The Lyric, theoretically, should work very well in your Bandolin. I can't say for sure, but from what I have seen and heard of the Bandolin, the Lyric should amplify it very naturally. We at LR Baggs haven't tried the Lyric on the Bandolin specifically, but our testing on similar instruments has shown pretty good results.
Killer - thanks for the response. I will definitely check it out.
