When we asked our employees to list their three favourite things in the store rob replied : "It's probably not as sexy as the guitars or the tongue drums or the whatevers upstairs, but I'm giving my number three slot to the Anthems - it's what I've got installed in both of my main guitars, I think Zach's got one, it's my go-to recommendation for pickups. When you're talking about how your audience hears your instrument every night, don't go cheap. These are simply the best."
House of Musical Traditions is known for being a home for acoustic instruments. But we also Love making those instruments a bit louder. LR Baggs is a pretty marvelous way to do it. Generally all pickups require professional installation - for more information about pickup installs checkout services available from our head luthier Steve Carmody.
Here's a recording done with an LR Baggs Anthem installed!
Studio Mic'd Sound Wherever You Perform
The Award-winning Anthem series, featuring our patent-pending TRU•MIC technology, seamlessly combines a proprietary condenser microphone with our acclaimed Element pickup to deliver the warmth and fidelity of a studio-mic’d guitar anywhere you perform.
At the heart of the Anthem is a revolutionary microphone engineered to capture a dynamic studio-mic’d sound for any live performance. The TRU•MIC mounts to the underside of the bridge plate and hovers just 3 mm above its surface to take advantage of the PZM or “boundary” effect. This proprietary mounting system, combined with noise cancellation, frees the mic to perform as if it were outside of the guitar in a studio and maintain remarkable feedback suppression for the stage. The result is a balanced frequency response with excellent clarity for the purest sound you have ever heard amplified. We have paired the Element pickup with the TRU•MIC to provide solidity and punch for low frequencies.
