Overview

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

The LR Baggs Element Active System pairs the Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A endpin preamp and includes small, removable soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls (VTC) for added convenience and versatility. The entire pickup system is designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance. Also included with the acoustic pickup 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 and tone controls
  • Pre-controlled discrete class A endpin preamp
  • Come with Battery Bagg for secure and unobtrusive battery retention

    Comments about LR Baggs Element Active System VTC Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup:

    I had this pickup put in my Taylor 412 r . It sounds great and has tone and volume. I also bought one for my 522 limited edition Taylor but the bracing made it difficult to mount the tone and volume controls.

        Wow, What a pickup

        By Pearl Bradley

        from Hamilton, Ohio

        Comments about LR Baggs Element Active System VTC Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup:

        I have had 3 of these pick up systems installed in my guitars and I cant say enough about them. My recent installation was in a Martin D18V with the long drop in saddle and it went great. These pickups are built solid from the element itself all the way to the end pin jack and the volume-tone control knob. I play unplugged about 50% of the time in a Bluegrass setting and I also play in a Praise and Worship band at church with drums and electric instruments. I say that to emphasize that the system will not harm the natural sound of the instrument and is virtually unseen while being able to perform without feedback when alot of stage volume is present. I would buy nothing but the Baggs System

        Great sound for the money

        By A Vasquez

        from Anaheim, Ca

        Comments about LR Baggs Element Active System VTC Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup:

        Bought this pickup for my Taylor DN3, and it makes it sound like the nice warm guitar that it is. You could spend more of course, but this pickup is really all you need. I play through a Fender Acoustisonic or Roland AC90 and it sounds very natural. You won't be disappointed.
