OVERVIEW

A complete system for nylon-string guitars that captures the true sound of your instrument.

The EAS Element Active System Pickup Preamp Volume Control Nylon String from LR Naggs 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 pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume control for added convenience and versatility. The entire system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance. Also included is our battery bag for secure battery storage.

FEATURES
  • One size fits most common string spacings and saddle widths
  • Includes easily-accessible yet unobtrusive soundhole-mounted volume control
  • Pre-contoured class A endpin preamp
  • Comes with battery bag for secure and unobtrusive battery retention

Make your nylon string sound as good as it should. Order today.

      Comments about LR Baggs EAS Element Active System Pickup Preamp Volume Control Nylon String:

      I bought this LR Baggs Element pickup because I wanted one that's specifically voiced for nylon string guitars. There are two versions of the LR Baggs Element, so this review only pertains to the nylon string version.

      I'm an experienced wood craftsman who's built furniture for my home use, so the installation went quite quickly and without significant complications. There are a variety of YouTube videos available which anyone can watch to assess their own capabilities before deciding to tackle the installation themselves. It should be noted that the LR Baggs warranty does NOT cover do-it-yourself installations, so give that appropriate consideration. Personally, I had no desire to double the cost of the pickup by taking it to a luthier to do the relatively minor work involved. In my case, I find that the use of an external DI box more than makes up for the fact that the LR Baggs Element has no built-in EQ controls -- just a simple volume wheel to control output.

      Once installed in my Orpheus Valley Fiesta classical guitar, the results were outstanding. I play through a Fishman Aura Spectrum DI box and a number of the Fishman microphone images produce fantastically, rich, detailed sound. One of my nylon classical guitars has a Fishman Presys Blend pickup system installed and the LR Baggs Element sounds every bit as good at half the price. I highly recommend it to all who desire reasonably priced, straight-forward nylon string amplification without a lot of bells ad whistles.

      Comments about LR Baggs EAS Element Active System Pickup Preamp Volume Control Nylon String:

      This undersaddle pickup utilizes a flexible, metal wrapped cable, rather than the hard piezo style pickup. LR Baggs claims this will not only capture the saddle/bridge tones, but will also include and amplify internal resonance due to the microphonic ability of the cable. After installing one for steel strings, and one for nylon strings, I can assure you this is completely correct! Both versions have resulted in phenominal, warm, rich, focused tones - but sharper than LR Baggs I Beam pickup. If you can install a piezo, you can install this. And if you are debating, this is the one to get!
