- Dec. 7, 2012 - BRIGHTON, U.K. --
We are very excited to be adding LR Baggs Acoustic Guitar Pickups (http://www.pedalsnpickups.com)
to our product range. They are widely regarded as the best acoustic pickups available and are used the world over by artists such as James Taylor, Coldplay, David Gilmour and Oasis. Lloyd Baggs, a well known guitar builder from California, first started making pickups back in the mid seventies after developing the idea of a transducer pickup whilst working with Ry Cooder. He started the business in a loft in downtown Los Angeles, California, with a hope and a dream and now L.R. Baggs is one of the worlds leading acoustic pickup manufacturers. The first pickup they commercial produced was the LB6. It has been in production for over 20 years, and continues to be the pick-up of choice for such large-venue performers as Vince Gill, Phil Keaggy, Kathy Mattea and James Taylor.
We are currently stocking the popular M1 and M80 soundhole pickups that you will see on stages all over the world. What makes it them so different? The secret is the breakthrough patent-pending TriAxial Dynamic Technology™ developed by Gary Garrett and Lloyd Baggs. This new technology allows the pickup to respond to the guitar’s string and body vibrations. The new M80 takes this technology one step further with a built-in 3D sensor that picks up the entire frequency range of your guitar’s body and captures more of its acoustic soul than any single pickup ever created.
The three models available are:
LR Baggs M1 Passive Acoustic Guitar Soundhole Pickup (http://www.pedalsnpickups.com/acoustic-guitar-pickups/lr-...
) – The M1 redefines what is possible from a soundhole pickup and eliminates the trade-off between ease and performance. It’s never been easier to get superior live sound!
LR Baggs M1 Active Acoustic Guitar Soundhole Pickup (http://www.pedalsnpickups.com/acoustic-guitar-pickups/lr-...
) – The built-in all class A electronics eliminate the need for any external preamps and makes the M1 Active compatible with any outboard equipment. And the new volume control gives you fingertip access in any performing situation.
LR Baggs M80 Acoustic Guitar Soundhole Pickup (http://www.pedalsnpickups.com/acoustic-guitar-pickups/lr-...
) – It’s all about the body. The more body that a pickup can capture, the more natural and inspiring the sound will be.Photo:
