Too Quiet

By solerydr

Comments about LR Baggs iBeam Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

This pick-up is really really quit. I have an L.R. Baggs para-acoustic D.I. to go with it, and its still too quiet. I have played on p.a.'s were the natural sound of my Martin was louder than the amplified sound. It IS installed correctly. Dont expect to play with any accompanyment or mic'd vocals. When I kick on my tuner, there is a loud pop due to the amount of gain needed for me to be heard. Most sound men give up and just mic me. Im shopping for a replacement right now. Sounds really good if you can hear it though.

A little boxy, but better than a piezo...

Comments about LR Baggs iBeam Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

I installed an iBeam active in my guitar and was immediately impressed with its faithful reproduction of the instrument's acoustic tone. I would have to say, however, that if you are planning on installing one of these, you will probably need an EQ on the floor (i.e., Paracoustic DI or equal) to help shape the sound. It is very mid-rangy and boxy sounding without contouring the sound.

iBeam, sounds good, very practical

By Firstson

from Huntsville, TX

Comments about LR Baggs iBeam Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

I purchased the iBeam for my Gretsch Rancher (6012). Coupled to a Baggs preamp is sounds very nice, very acoustic. It's certainly fine in smaller, not so loud applications, and for recording, however, it tends to feedback at higher volume levels. Installation required some extra effort as it won't fit in front of the bridge pins. The bracing is too close. I set it behind. Sound is a bit brassy, but certainly fixable with a preamp.

Well, we're impressed.

Comments about LR Baggs iBeam Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

I had this pickup fitted in my friend's Epiphone/Gibson acoustic and everytime we go to a new venue the sound engineers are amazed at the quality of the sound it's kicking out. They are so used to rubbishy old bridge pickups that this one finally makes them do some work but between us we always get an excellent sound whether in a small club or a larger theatre. I'm going to have one fitted to my classical, I'm that impressed. It is a bit pricey, though I guess you get what you pay for.

    Comments about LR Baggs iBeam Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

    I had this pickup professionally installed in my Martin 810. I like that fact that it didn't require any alteration to the saddle or soundboard. I read another review that said the sound is too quiet? Not the case for me. I often use a L.R. Baggs Para-acoustic D.I. EQ box, but not always. A good PA does just fine.
    My higher end is not so strong for soloing, but that's the guitar, not the pickup. I have the same problem unplugged as plugged. I'm happy with the pickup. Very natural sound.

    Great Pickup

    By GibsonLPlayer502

    from Frankfort, KY

    See all my reviews

    Comments about LR Baggs iBeam Acoustic Guitar Pickup:

    I am not a fan at all of active systems unless they come equipped. This pickup is a great choice. Not only does it carry the L.R. Baggs name, but it carries the tone as well. It perfectly represents my guitars tone. Because there are no batteries or an extensive amount of wires, installation is not a hassle. The only con to this pickup is that it is very weak without a preamp...obviously...but this is minor. This is hands down, one of the best guitar purchases of my career.
