LR Baggs Anthem SL


We've seen a trend of acoustic musicians returning to microphones as their primary source of amplification.  There are two reasons for this; the first being that no magnetic or piezo transducer does as good a job of replicatiing the ear as a microphone does, and secondly, new technology is producing more feedback-resistant mics than ever before.  So far, the most popular mic options have been externally mounted microphones (which work well, but mount awkwardly), or computer generated microphone images.  With the Anthem, LR Baggs has just made it simpler.  

The Anthem is a new breed of an internal microphone and pickup blend for your acoustic guitar.  LR Baggs has developed a microphone that mounts inside without being feedback-prone or boxy sounding.  The result amplifies the character and dynamics of your instrument without external mounting brackets or computer gadgetry.  

This is accomplished by a crossover mix of the high and mid frequencies from the mic, and bass from an undersaddle element.  This is the slim line version of the system, with a preset mic/pickup blend.
