Overview

The Element Active System Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup from LR Baggs delivers performance previously unattainable from an undersaddle guitar pickup. The streamlined and efficient design of the acoustic guitar pickup removes every unnecessary internal component to improve the coupling between the transducer and the guitar. This substantially improves the sensitivity of the LR Baggs pickup's transducer for a robust, lively, and open sound with great dynamics and a delicate high end.

The Element Active System pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume control for added convenience and versatility. The entire acoustic microphone and guitar pickup system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance. Also included with the Element Active System is LR Bagg's Battery Bagg for secure storage.

Features
  • One-size-fits-all common string spacings and saddle widths
  • Even string-to-string balance
  • Includes easily-accessible, yet unobtrusive soundhole-mounted volume control
  • Pre-controlled discrete class A endpin preamp
  • Come with Battery Bagg for secure and unobtrusive battery retention

Sounds the Best !

By 

from Bristol, PA

Comments about LR Baggs Element Active System Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup:

Introduced to this pickup via my Gibson J45RW...gotta say I love the sound...very natural sounding. Just bought another LR Baggs Element pickup from Guitar Center online and had it installed in a Guild DV52 that had a high end Fishman pickup and preamp system in it when I purchased it used. Although this Guild sounded excellent unplugged I did not like the sound of the pickup and preamp that was in it. Way too artificial and "pingy".... The LR Baggs Element pickup changed everything... Now my Guild is a complete workhorse..sounds great onstage and off... I'm very pleased

Perfection

By 

from Kansas City, Missouri

Comments about LR Baggs Element Active System Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup:

I just put this baby in my Takamine GS330S and it amazingly represents the true sound of an acoustic guitar. It sounds like it's mic'd whether strumming or picking! It was super easy to install. No soldering and it came with 3 ties to keep the wires from jiggling around inside the guitar. The only problem I have is that the end-pin needs to be a bit longer so I can fit my strap all the way on. Also the jack is a little too snug, but that will loosen over time. All in all, best purchase I've made in a looooong time!
