LR Baggs

An intelligently designed mic system built for steel-string acoustic guitars.

For acoustic guitarists who prefer a minimalist approach to controls, LR Baggs offers the Anthem SL acoustic microphone and preamp system. In the SL, the balance between the Tru-Mic and Element pickup is preset for optimum performance so you can have the same great fidelity in an end-pin preamp format. The preamp, with LR Baggs famous all-discrete studio quality circuitry, is also equipped with a soundhole mounted volume control.

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. The Element undersaddle pickup carries only the lowest frequencies for punch and authority.

Features

  • Pre-set mic and pickup for optimum performance
  • Anthem Tru-Mic carries the majority of the guitars’ frequency range
  • Noise cancelation eliminates any annoying honky or boxy qualities inside the guitar
  • The Element Pickup carries only the lowest frequencies
  • One size fits most common string spacings and saddle widths
  • Soundhole remote includes volume and mic gain trim controls
  • Pre-contoured discrete class A endpin preamp

        Comments about LR Baggs Anthem SL Acoustic Microphone/Preamp System:

        I put this pickup system in my Taylor 814ce recently. The Taylor expression system is good, the Baggs smokes it though. A lot of the times one of the hardest things to accomplish live is just making an acoustic instrument sound like itself, just louder, L.R. Baggs products really do that. I would recommend the anthem in any good sounding acoustic. I've noticed a lot of really nice, rich sounding acoustic guitars that have pickups that just don't do them justice.

        Also it makes recording very easy. Instead of having to find the sweet spot with a condenser to get a good natural sound, you can get the perfect sound with a direct signal.

            I replaced the stock Fishman under-saddle system that came with my 2001 Gibson J-45 with the Anthem system and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. My Fishman system always sounded great but after a little tweaking of the Anthem system it really brought out the natural sound of my already awesome sounding guitar! You have to experiment a little to get the right mix between the mic and the under-saddle pickup but once you get that mixed correctly it sounds awesome! Glad I made the purchase.

            Had it professionally installed and all it does is increase the volume of my guitar, nothing else. I get compliments all the time about how nice my Eastman E10D sounds amped up. I love it. I just bought another one to install in my new Larrivee L-03R. Highly recommended!

              Comments about LR Baggs Anthem SL Acoustic Microphone/Preamp System:

              This pickup works very well for acoustic solo fingerstyle players. I was very disappointed that it was a used item that had been previously installed. It was functional, but the mounting tape etc. was damaged/missing, yet it was sold as a "new" item.. A very minimal credit was applied when I complained!!

                Great reproduction of my Guild D-55, I play through a ASD Marshall amp. Install instruction require professional installation. I did not have this available to me so I did it myself. Not difficult.

                Comments about LR Baggs Anthem SL Acoustic Microphone/Preamp System:

                This pickup gives the truest amplification I've yet heard in an acoustic pickup.
                Easy to install and makes my acoustic sound like itself, just louder.
                Sound is great and every part seems to be well built.
                You get what you pay for. Buy a cheap pickup and it sounds cheap. This sounds good.

                Anthem SL

                By BrentinFL

                from Jacksonville, FL

                Comments about LR Baggs Anthem SL Acoustic Microphone/Preamp System:

                I installed this system last night(6/23/10) in my '94 Gibson Gospel, replacing a Baggs ribbon transducer system I had for about 12 yrs. The sound is incredibly natural and resists feedback way past what the ribbon ust could tolerate. Highly recommend! I've used systems from 3 other companies over the yrs in various guitars and none of them come close to the anthem. It actually sounds better than the demo clips I've heard.
