PICKUPS: (descriptions follow, Pickup Systems are further down)
Soundhole magnet pickup with body sensors, pickup responds to the string vibration along with the body vibrations. • Completely passive operation: no batteries to worry about • Quiet, hum-free operation under the most challenging live conditions • Highly feedback resistant • Adjustable pole pieces with smooth threadless tops preserve fingerstylists' nails • Built-in gold-plated 1/8" jack makes moving or removing the pickup a snap • Includes a prewired strapjack harness and a 12' Mogami audiophile-grade cable
Ribbon Transducer (passive shown here)
A GREAT undersaddle pickup for acoustic guitar and is a key element in many of their combined preamp systems. This high-tech, laser-trimmed wonder is thin and flexible, fits any string spacing and gives an exceptional natural reproduction for any type of single pickup made. Works great for acoustic bass guitar, too! The key feature that separates the RT from other pickups is that its sensor is responsive to vibration but not to pressure. This minimizes that unpleasant, dry, stringy sound that is characteristic of pressure-sensitive undersaddle pickups. As the guitar top moves with the vibrations of the strings, so does the RT sensor, naturally reflecting the actual sound and dynamics of your guitar.
The legendary LB6 pickup (LB12 for
12-string guitars) is the first unitary saddle pickup for acoustic guitar. The sensors are
cast right into the saddle for high output, great sensitivity and presence. Still
preferred by many top pros.
Bridge Pickup. The choice of top pros like Mark O Connor, Alison Krauss, Jean-Luc Ponty and Darol Anger, the LR Baggs Violin Pickup sets the standard. It features a miniature directional vibration sensor, cast into the bridge itself, for unsurpassed warmth and sensitivity.
Radius External Mount Pickup. This new soundboard transducer pickup offers a unique approach to amplifying small higher register instruments such as the violin and mandolin. A thin film sensor is suspended between two neodymium magnets and encased in a small capsule which mounts to the instrument's outside surface with a non-destructive adhesive pad. The sensor is very responsive to top vibrations. Installation is simple and requires no permanent alteration of your instrument. Includes a 1/4" carpenter jack that clamps to the side of the instrument. The frequency response is linear, silky smooth and accurate with an astonishing natural and effortless sound. Unlike most soundboard transducers, the Radius is also very tolerant to placement and works well in a variety of locations. The output of the device is quite strong which allows passive use with a normal length cord without a preamp into most acoustic amps, although a preamp will improve performence.
Add great acoustic sound to your trusty Strat® with our cool new and easy to install bridge replacement pickup. Models available in chrome or gold for US Standard, Vintage and Fixed Bridge Strats®.

with other kinds of internal condenser or transducer style pickups as well as
preamplification devices. There are a variety of such systems available from
