A miniature onboard microphone/pickup mixing system with mono or split stereo operation.
The Dual Source System is a miniature onboard microphone/pickup mixing system that features all-discrete class A circuitry. It seamlessly combines an Element Pickup with a high quality FET condenser capsule for an affordable, simple-to-use, one-cord mix. By using clever and efficient design, LR Baggs have added these features without raising the price or compromising the quality.
The Pickup: The Element Pick-up is a minature internally mounted microphone/pick-up mixing system that seamlessly combines the patented Element transducer with a high quality FET condenser microphone. The ultra-quiet preamp mounts non-destructively inside of the instrument and features all-discrete audiophile circuitry for LR Baggs signature quality sound and a great one-cord mix right out of box. The preamp controls have ample flexibility to fine tune the response to your individual guitar.
The Microphone: The Dual Source mic is a high quality omni-directional FET condenser capsule encased in a small block of acoustically transparent foam. It mounts easily on the back of the inside of the guitar with Velcro. It is designed to use the entire back surface as a "pressure zone." This minimizes the effect of standing waves and hot spots inside of the guitar. Consequently, the sound is closer to that of an outside microphone than with other internal mic placements. This location also gives increased protection against feedback.
