OVERVIEW

An undersaddle pickup specifically tuned to track the uke's natural dynamics and unique voice.

The L.R. Baggs FIVE.O ukulele system is small, light-weight, and best of all, specifically tuned to track the uke's natural dynamics and its unmistakably unique voice.

The system combines a custom version of the award winning Element undersaddle pickup with a miniature endpin preamp, soundhole mounted volume control and is powered by a 3 Volt coin cell battery. The entire system weighs less than one 9 Volt battery and tucks away neatly inside the small instrument for a non-invasive installation.

The pure, all-discrete electronics are voiced for the most accurate frequency response you have ever heard, so plug into the FIVE.O and enjoy the performance you have been waiting for.

This is an Amazing system!

Comments about LR Baggs FIVE.O Uke Pickup System with Endpin Preamp and volume control:

As I said, this works incredibly well and as it should in my Kamaka. Others who use these report equally happy results (check YouTube). I do not work for this company or sell these, I am just a very, very satisfied customer with 30+ years playing fretted instruments.
I had this professionally mounted in a Kamaka HF-3 Tenor, which is arguably one of the best ukuleles you can buy. This system captures the sound beautifully playing back through my Fishman Loudbox (again, a quality item) extremely well. I find it to have an ultra-clean, true sound with no distortion at all; indeed, of all of the systems I have tried, this is far and away THE BEST I have ever heard. Nice that it has a volume control, which gives you some on-board control of the sound. The thing I like most about this is that you get none of the handling and extraneous noise of many other systems. I would suggest you always get these installed by a qualified repair person or Luthier as any time you drill into a bridge and a instrument body you run the risk of not doing it right. You also have to shave some of the saddle down to compensate for the height added by the pick-up, which again is best left in the hands of a pro. If you get it installed right, you should absolutely love this item
See above - well made.
Best value in ukulele amplificiation as far as I am concerned. I am amazed they can sell something this good for such a low price.

      I have one of these installed in my tenor ukulele, and it is the best I have used. the sound is very accurate amplified, just louder, of course.

        Comments about LR Baggs FIVE.O Uke Pickup System with Endpin Preamp and volume control:

        As a result of my first review I was contacted by a company tech. He said that there were some pick ups that shipped from the company with issues. I must have purcsed one of them. I was sent a new unit so I installed it. I am now a very satisfied user. It performs as advertised.
        I am absolutely impressed with the level of customer service extended to me. For that I am also very thankful. I would recommend this pick up to anyone looking or superior amplified sound from their Uke.

        Very bad pick up system

        Comments about LR Baggs FIVE.O Uke Pickup System with Endpin Preamp and volume control:

        I had this system installed in my Kala Uke and play it through a Mackie P.A. board and JBL Eon speakers with Radial JDI. This pick up distorts terribly with the slightest amount of aggressive attack on the strings. What I mean by that is anything harder than light fingerpicking. The system I play through is great and anything I've plugged into it sounds great. If it wasn't for the disappointing distortion the reproduction of the sound is very good but I don't want an electric guitar distort on my Uke. I do not recommend this to anyone searching for a good clean sound.
        Overall features are good.
        I guess the actual parts are quality in nature. But, good parts and bad sound do not make a good system.
        There is no value to a pick up system that does not deliver what was promised and at this price has no justification.

          Comments about LR Baggs FIVE.O Uke Pickup System with Endpin Preamp and volume control:

          I installed the L.R. Baggs FIVE.O pickup in my Lanikai Concert ukulele in the past and purchased this one for my Kanilea 19" Super Tenor. The pickup makes my Concert ukulele sound really bright and the one installed on the Kanilea brings out the low G string and full tone of the ukulele. I love the clean look to the installation with the volume dial just inside the sound hole. The end pin jack makes it even more clean. No one realizes I can connect into an amp until I plug in. This pickup is well worth the price.

              Comments about LR Baggs FIVE.O Uke Pickup System with Endpin Preamp and volume control:

              Solo performer using my uke on a few songs through my sets. I installed the Five-0 in a Fender Pa-ina and it made a world of difference. The Five-0 is active and the Fender pup was passive. I've had Lanakai AE ukes and none come close to the sound I'm getting from the Five-0 in the Pa-ina. The install was easy, as the Pa-ina had a passive pup already and all I had to do was take it out and pop in the Baggs. The pup comes with a small hole on the end and some floss to make it easy to pull the pup up through to the bridge. The only downside is the battery velcro and volume knob tape are sub-par and needed to be replaced with better stuff. This pup brings to life the mellow mahogany sound of the Pa-ina with little to no feedback at live volumes. I'm using Baggs pups in my steel string and nylon too, and there is no better in my opinion.
