Undersaddle pickup system with volume and tone controls for steel string acoustics.
L.R. Baggs is leading the pack with this fantastic undersaddle transducer pickup. The amazing sound quality of the pre-contoured all-discrete preamp is enhanced by the low-end compressor that tightens up the lower frequencies for the most natural bass response you will find in any undersaddle pickup. The unobtrusive soundhole-mounted controls provide easy access to volume and tone controls for tweaking on the fly.

Think you know what undersaddle transducers are all about? Think again. The Element delivers performance previously unattainable from an undersaddle pickup. The streamlined and efficient design removes every unnecessary internal component to improve the coupling between the transducer and the guitar. This substantially improves the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively and open sound with great dynamics and a delicate high end.
The Element Active System - Volume and Tone Control (VTC) pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone control for added convenience and versatility. The VTC also features a low frequency compressor that tames unnatural low end thump and mimics the actual dynamic response of your guitar for enhanced realism. The entire system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance. Also included is our battery bag for secure battery storage.
