The traditional Florentine shape of the Breedlove American FO Mandolin with LR Baggs Radius Pickup is simple and elegant. Deep and rich, with a complex and full voice, this instrument really sings through a single oval sound hole in the body. The combination of Sitka Spruce for the top wood and Flamed Big Leaf Maple for the back and sides produce a full range of bass and bright, high end tones in a stunning package. Amazing clarity and sustain are provided through a maple neck, ebony bridge and fretboard, while the radiused fingerboard and oversize frets allow for extreme comfort. Equipped with the LR Baggs Radius Mandolin pickup, the silky feel of this mandolin will make you never want to put it down.
LR Baggs Radius Mandolin pickup
The Radius Mandolin pickup is a hi-tech contact sensor that installs in minutes. It is a passive accelerometer-based pickup that emulates the sound of a mic without the instability associated with microphones. At the heart of the pick-up is a highly flexible beam with a .004” thin film sensor, similar to mic diaphragm material, attached to its surface. The beam is held in equilibrium and damped by another LR Baggs innovation—opposing Neodymium magnets. The Radius-M can be mounted to the outside surface of the instrument with a removable, non-destructive adhesive or to the inside with VHB adhesive. An external preamp is recommended.
