Acoustic Pickups


Acoustic guitar and instrument pickups, microphones and mixing systems.

MICROPHONE SYSTEMS

Our patented TRU•MIC technology was engineered to provide studio mic’d performance for the stage. The microphone’s noise canceling design to reject boxy reflections combined with unprecedented isolation and feedback suppression provides the sound of a mic with the freedom of a pickup.

ANTHEM

The Award-winning Anthem series, featuring our patented TRU•MIC technology, seamlessly combines a proprietary condenser microphone with our acclaimed Element pickup to deliver the warmth and fidelity of a studio-mic’d guitar anywhere you perform. Learn more ›

LYRIC

The next step in TRU•MIC technology, Lyric’s internal microphone accurately transports your guitar's actual voice to a live audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience. Learn more ›

magnetic SYSTEMS

Our unique magnetic soundhole pickups are for players who love big acoustic tone with high feedback resistance on any stage. Combining the natural characteristics of your guitar’s soundboard with a punchy string attack, their body-sensitive design provides realism while cutting through a loud mix.

M1 active

The M1 Active is a patented humbucking pickup with a twist. In a common stacked humbucker, the lower coil cancels hum, but doesn’t contribute anything positive to the sound. We unlock the lower coil with a carefully tuned support that allows it to capture higher frequency resonances. As the pickup moves with the guitar’s soundboard, a body signal is created in the suspended coil that adds presence and realism to your amplified sound. Learn more ›

M80

The secret of the M80 is a patented, free-floating humbucking coil that acts as a 3D body sensor. As the soundboard resonates in all 3 dimensions, a proprietary suspension allows each axis of the humbucking coil to respond with the guitar's movement. A resonate body signal is produced and blended with the strings to faithfully capture your guitar like no other magnetic pickup ever created. Learn more ›

pickup SYSTEMS

session VTC

Inspired by the LR Baggs Handcrafted Video Sessions and our experience in some of Nashville’s great studios, the Session electronics were designed to impart the rich sonic character that you’d expect from an experienced audio engineer using some of the world’s finest studio gear. Learn more ›

element

Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play. Learn more ›

IBEAM

The iBeam’s MIPA award-winning design employs a matched pair of virtually weightless film sensors that flex with the soundboard to trace your guitar’s voice much like diaphragms in a stereo mic. Learn more ›

mixing systems

Expand your versatility and tonal range by combining two sources in one system. Capturing the guitar with the strengths of two sources empowers you to dial in a more complex sound and provides versatility for a better quality performance in a variety of environments. Learn more ›
