An intelligently designed mic system built for steel-string acoustic guitars.

For acoustic guitarists who prefer a minimalist approach to controls, LR Baggs offers the Anthem SL acoustic microphone and preamp system. In the SL, the balance between the Tru-Mic and Element pickup is preset for optimum performance so you can have the same great fidelity in an end-pin preamp format. The preamp, with LR Baggs famous all-discrete studio quality circuitry, is also equipped with a soundhole mounted volume control.

The mic is mounted to the bridge plate inside of the guitar to capture the majority of your guitar's true voice in a way that only a microphone is capable of-plus it is amazingly feedback resistant. The Element undersaddle pickup carries only the lowest frequencies for punch and authority.

  • Pre-set mic and pickup for optimum performance
    Anthem Tru-Mic carries the majority of the guitars' frequency range

    Pre-contoured discrete class A endpin preamp

  • great pickup needs better control adhesive

    As reviewed by Gary hudson on 1/9/2012

    I had no doubt this would be a great sounding pickup system because it comes from Baggs, whom you can always trust for acoustic guitar pickups. The adhesive material for sticking the volume control to the inside near the sound hole, however, is very weak and mine fell off at the first gig. This is even after thoroughly wiping the area where it was to be attached. Used Velcro instead and it worked fine. Also, my box came with no installation instructions, so you may have to download the PDF manual from the L.R. Baggs website to get instructions. As far as sound, feedback IS a factor if you boost low range in PA speakers, but using a low cut filter and notch takes care of that.

  • Natural sound and feedback resistant

    As reviewed by Bluewail on 8/23/2011

    Very pleased with mu Anthem SL. It's in a Larrivee C-10 and using a Baggs Para-DI I can get a tone that's pretty darn close to that "my guitar only louder" holy grail. The biggest surprise is the feedback resistance. I assumed that using an internal mic it might be a problem but in fact I can get the guitar louder without feedback than either of my guitars that have under-saddle pickups only. Very impressed

  • Fantastic, natural sound!

    As reviewed by Mick on 4/18/2011

    I researched every acoustic pickup made, listened to sound clips and read every review. I wanted a pickup system that would not color the sound of my 1998 Tacoma DM-10, and would mount with the least modification to the body. Most importantly, it needed to cost less than an arm and a leg! The Anthem wins! I ran this thru my PA with only a DI, adjusted the trim for least amount of handling noise and started playing. HOLY CRAP! It sounded just like my guitar..only louder! Some minor tweaks on the mixers EQ and I was in Heaven! String balance is right on and unless you're standing in front of the speaker or monitor feedback is non-existent. Great for strumming, but where this thing excels is finger picking. I doubt that it would handle a full band situation very well (but I've got my Fishman Premium SOB on another guitar for that), but for acoustic gigs, solo/duo/trio, which I plan to use this guitar for, You'll be hard pressed to find a better system.
