About Manufacturer

Every acoustic guitar in our boutique deserves the finest amplification systems available to recreate the beauty and detail that it has been painstakingly crafted to produce. Sound Pure’s Guitar Department has hand-selected L.R. Baggs products for their quality, innovation, and ability to create amplified sounds worthy of the world’s greatest acoustic guitars! Contact our experts to inquire about outfitting your acoustic rig with these fine products or about professional installation. 

L.R. Baggs has developed acoustic guitar amplification systems that capture the beauty and tonal character of even the most sophisticated instruments. Starting with the first step in the signal chain, the pickup, Baggs has perfected some of the most realistic and detailed pickup systems available. These devices employ a variety of state-of-the-art pickup designs and range from microphone systems, magnetic soundhole pickups, undersaddle pickups, bridgeplate systems, and more. Two of their most popular pickup systems, the Anthem and the M1, were recently awarded 3 Gold Medal accolades in Acoustic Guitar Magazine's Player's Choice Awards 2011; including the Anthem's award for Most Innovative New Product. Sound Pure's Acoustic Guitar experts are ready and available to help you outfit your acoustic with the perfect L.R. Baggs pickup system.

But it doesn't end there.

L.R. Baggs is also leading the field in acoustic preamps and amplifiers to help performers craft a superior acoustic tone from start to finish. The Venue DI system was awarded a Gold Medal for Best Stand-Alone Acoustic Preamp of 2011 and has set a new industry standard for tone and control in a simple, functional package. Also new to the L.R. Baggs family is the incredible A-Reference Amplifier, an outstanding sound-sculpting device that you will have to see to believe!
