Acoustic Pedal Suite Crafted for the Acoustic Player

Created specifically for acoustic musicians, the Align Series integrates studio processing tools, a high-fidelity preamplifier with foundational tone-shaping EQ, our proprietary acoustic reverb, and the most pristine, all-discrete active DI we have ever engineered. This highly versatile pedal series expands your tonal palette with a vast range of control that’s uniquely tailored to complement and enrich the voice of your acoustic instruments.

 
 

Align Series
Session

Acoustic Pedal featuring Saturation and Compression EQ

Inspired by the LR Baggs Handcrafted Video Sessions and our experience in some of Nashville’s great studios, the Align Session brings our signature studio sound to your live rig. Session circuitry enhances your acoustic pickup and imparts the rich sonic character that you’d expect from an experienced audio engineer using some of the world’s finest studio gear. We’ve captured this studio magic and put it into a compact, easy-to-use acoustic pedal that will transform your live sound.

Often used by studio engineers in post-production, saturation adds warmth, dimension, and pleasing harmonics while smoothing the signal for an enhanced mix. The Session’s proprietary saturation is voiced specifically for the acoustic guitar and transports studio analog warmth and inspiring playability to the stage.

Unlike standard compression that can squash the entire range of your signal, the Session’s Comp EQ features 3 narrowly focused bands of compression that tame common problematic frequencies and uncover the voice of your guitar. The low, mid, and high frequency compressors are essentially “touch-sensitive” EQs that respond in real-time to your dynamics. The harder you strum, the more they compress and vice versa.

FEATURES

Analog Saturation enhances warmth and harmonic content

Compression / EQ smoothes out common problem frequencies

Adjustable gain for both passive and active pickups

Equalizer

Acoustic Preamplifier with 6-Band EQ and Anti-feedback Notch Filter

Based on the circuit of the esteemed Para Acoustic DI, the Align Equalizer combines our signature, high-graded FET gain stage with powerful tone-shaping EQ that injects richness and balance to any acoustic pickup signal. A 6-band EQ shapes the frequencies we found most useful for improving acoustic guitar pickups with the flexibility needed to cover other acoustic instruments effectively. Multi-instrumentalists can incorporate dedicated EQ pedals for level matching a variety of instruments and tailoring a specific EQ for each one.

FEATURES

6-band EQ for meticulous tone sculpting

Variable high-pass filter attenuates extraneous low frequencies

Phase inversion for best sound and feedback control

3 position gain switch for easy level control

Garret Null notch filter tames resonant feedback

Reverb

Proprietary Reverb Tailored Specifically for Acoustic Instruments

The Align Reverb was built from the ground up to complement the natural body dynamics and warmth of acoustic instruments that we love so much. The circuit seamlessly integrates the wet and dry signals with the effect in side chain so that it never overwhelms the original signal. We shaped the reverb with analog EQ to reflect the natural voice inherent in acoustic instruments. Additionally, the tone control adds versatility by sweeping from warm and muted to open and present. The result is an organic reverb that maintains the audiophile purity of the original signal with the controls set in any position.

FEATURES

Reverb control blends reverb signal with unaffected signal

Decay adjusts the length of the reverb tail

Tone sweeps a wide range of warmth, clarity, and everywhere in between

Active DI

All-Discrete Active DI with Pedalboard-friendly Functionality

Building upon decades of experience creating studio-quality gear for the stage, the Align Active DI is the embodiment of LR Baggs engineering at its highest level and uses the most pristine circuitry we have developed in a DI. Our all-discrete design preserves the authenticity of your sound while providing high headroom for a wide range of signals. Equally at home on a pedalboard or standalone, we are excited to offer a DI with such a high degree of fidelity and functionality.

FEATURES

XLR and ¼" outputs

Pad boosts or cuts XLR out to meet the needs of the PA

Ground lift switch effectively eliminates ground-loop noise

Phase inversion for best sound and feedback control

Thru/Out switch for added output versatility

Mute footswitch for accessible control of your signal
when switching instruments or in between sets

48V phantom power option
