L.R. Baggs Anthem TRU-MIC and Element Pickup system
Natural Amplified Sound From Your Acoustic!
The LR Baggs Anthem Tru-Mic Acoustic Pickup will change the way you look at mic pickups! This feedback-busting, natural-sounding pickup is the result of over 30 years of effort. There's no modeling and no illusions going on here. The Anthem is strictly a well-designed microphone that picks up your guitar - clean, clear, and full of dynamics. While many guitar mics are way too prone to feedback or just as bad... give you that annoying "boxy sound" when used alone... the LR Baggs Anthem is like having your acoustic sound just "turned up," so it's full of detail, warmth, and personality.
So how does it work? We won't launch entirely into all the nitty gritty and the exhausting research the LR Baggs team went through to design the Anthem. What we will say is that they developed proprietary noise-canceling technology that avoids that helps avoid that honky/boxy sound and keep your acoustic tone sounding pure and natural. Plus, a specially designed placement system picks up the sound of the vibrations of your entire soundboard, so the Anthem is surprisingly free of placement issues.
The control unit of the Anthem is extremely lightweight and features just the essentials: Volume, Mix, and Phase. It nestles inside the soundhole for easy fingertip access. With the Mix control, you can blend between the augmented mic and the full-range pickup. There's also a multi-segment battery check to maximize battery life.
