Overview

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.

  • Soundhole remote includes volume and mic gain trim controls
  • Pre-contoured discrete class A endpin preamp

The Baggs Sl

By harrison jarrett

from Pennslvania

Guys I did a lot of research for my pickup. I installed it in my Taylor GC3 (grand concert body) You might be unsure because of the small interface compared to the other pickup the anthem tru mic. But don't worry, it is really great without the ease of access (compared to the other pickup). This pickup truly does sound like a mic, and with the under saddle pickup you get some good low ends. I feel great about it so hope this helps.

great pickup needs better control adhesive

By Gary hudson

from Tallahassee, FL

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

By Bluewail

from SF Bay Area

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
