Lyric™ Acoustic Guitar Microphone

Beyond Pickups. Beyond Compare.

Anthem Acoustic Guitar Gold Award 2014

There's no argument that a microphone is the best way to capture the sound of an acoustic guitar, but until now, using a microphone for most live performances has been an elusive dream. Lyric, the next step in TRU•MIC technology, is the long overdue realization of this dream. Without a pickup, Lyric's microphone accurately transports your guitar's actual voice to a live audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience.

Lyric Acoustic Guitar Microphone MIPA

Our featherweight microphone, each high-graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside of the bridge plate with simple peel-&-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The microphone leverages the "pressure-zone" principle by positioning the capsule just 3mm from the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. And the microphone's proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal microphone, Lyric employs noise canceling technology that rejects "boxy" reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patent pending minor miracle enables the mic to act as if it were outside of the guitar delivering a clear and open performance.

Guitar World Gold Award

In a studio, you would have to use an entire rack of gear to achieve what we have built into Lyric's tiny circuit board. Our lead engineer, Tommy Linn, created several patent pending "black box" circuit innovations that unlock the potential of the microphone. The first tightens the lower frequencies for a punchier attack with natural dynamics. The second maintains the microphone's sweetness no matter how hard you play. The third innovation, not patent pending but useful, is an adjustable "presence" control that dials high frequency response perfectly for your guitar. Wrap all of this in all discrete, high-fidelity mic pre and you have a world class microphone system as an integral part of your guitar anywhere you plug in.

Lyric™ Reviews

Chris Gill
Guitar World Gold Award“Simply put, the Lyric delivers warm, natural and dynamic tones that are impressively close to a guitar's inherent acoustic sound. As a result, the Lyric is as useful in the studio as it is onstage.”

Dave Burrluck
“The Lyric is a marvellous aide, especially for players who want studio, mic-like tonality coming out of their acoustic amp or PA. Also, if you're recording at home then it's not always easy to have a perfectly quiet environment. Again, the Lyric is remarkably accurate in here, giving you mic-like tonality direct into your recording software.”

– Teja Gerken & Scott Nygaard

“One of my main considerations with any amplification system is how good it sounds given little or no time for a soundcheck. I’ve played countless festivals where I had to walk onstage, plug in, and hope for the best. It’s hard to imagine anything working any better in that situation than the LR Baggs Lyric.”

"LR Baggs new-at-NAMM Lyric acoustic microphone system impressed us with its unobtrusive design, but blew us away with its super-organic, natural tones and feedback resistance."

Sturgill SimpsonLyric Acoustic Guitar Microphone Sturgill Simpson
Nashville sounds like Nashville again on High Top Mountain, the debut release from singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson. From furious honky-tonk and pre-outlaw country-rocking to spellbinding bluegrass pickin’ and emotional balladry, the album serves as a one-stop guide to everything that made real country music such a force to be reckoned with. Read More »
