What We Think

This innovative product from L.R. Baggs is a remarkable new advancement in acoustic pickup technology. Their new Tru-Mic setup puts their noise-cancelling microphone just 3 mm from the bridge plate providing much higher gain before feedback when compared to most internal mics. What you have is a very natural tone that doesn't come out boxy or boomy that you can then blend with the undersaddle pickup to fill out the low end. Unlike many similar products, you actually get a higher signal from the internal mic than from the undersaddle pickup, which really does produce superior tone. Imagine, an internal mic that actually sounds like a mic'd acoustic guitar! With controls for volume, blend, and phase, you can make most adjustments right there on the unobtrusive soundhole-mounted control unit.

Manufacturer's Description from L.R. Baggs

 

 

Think you know what an internal microphone is all about? Think again. This mic will shatter your preconceptions.

 

This revolutionary new amplification system features our patent pending Tru-Mic microphone technology. The mic is mounted to the bridge plate inside of the guitar to capture the majority of your guitar's true voice in a way that only a microphone is capable of - plus it is amazingly feedback resistant. Our Element Under Saddle Pickup carries only the lowest frequencies for punch and authority.

A sound hole mounted controller has volume, mix and phase controls with a battery check feature so you can always be sure of your battery at any gig.

Now you can plug in, crank it and sound more real than you ever thought possible.
