Absolutely the Best Acoustic Preamp Around!

By Dulcimerist

from Billings, MT

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

The LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI is an awesome preamp for electro-acoustic instruments, and comes with so many valuable features! Since early 2004 I've used it in conjunction with a McSpadden SH12KK Custom dulcimer with custom LR Baggs piezo bridge pickup, and this LR Baggs preamp makes it play like a dream! The most useful features for me have been the equilizer, gain control, volume control, effects loop, reverse polarity button, and its dual output of both a 1/4" and an XLR jack. This unit can run on phantom power through the XLR, although I prefer to use 9-volt batteries in it. Battery life in this preamp is quite long, as it doesn't use much power while it's operating (less than 3mA!). The discrete pure class A field effect transistor input gives the very best sound possible and virtually no noise. If you play any electro-acoustic instruments, be sure to pick up this awesome product! It's well-worth the investment, gives you more control over your sound, and improves your music!

A wonderful EQ

By coolwhip

from Dallas, TX

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

This little box did more for my acoustic/electric tone than any other puchase I've ever made. I own a Gibson Songwriter Deluxe that I gig with on a regular basis, but the piezo always sounded a bit thin and unrealistic to me. This DI allows me to control EVERYTHING about my tone - awful PAs begin to sound top of the line when I slap this in my chain and tweak for a couple of seconds. A wonderful DI!

A Soundman's Acoustic guitar solution

By MadDawg

from Chicago IL

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

My first experience with the Para DI was with Country artists Stacy Earle and Mark Stuart. They brought their own to the gig and I was totally blown away with the amount of control that was available with an acoustic guitar with a class pickup. No feedback, no tonal problems---We ran the channel on the board straight flat and did all initial adjustments on the box. During performance, it was virtually a lock to contour the sound of their guitars to the room as it changed. I was so impressed that I bought 2 to carry with me all the time!!! Phenomonal product with phenomonal results. BUY ONE!!!!!!

A Guitar's Best Friend

By lamchopsuey

from San Diego, CA

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

If you have a passive pick up on your guitar, you got to get one of these. It will totally up the sound quality of the guitar, giving it more juice and punch to it. I think its the best acoustic DI out there because it gives you total control of what you want. Highly recommend it.

Great for Mandolin and Fiddle too!

By Evan Brentonc

from Fort Collins, CO

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

The LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI works great with a mandolin and violin as well. It gives a great boost and makes them sound full and rich with tone. It actually replicates the acoustic sound of your instrument. I've used it with my upright bass too and it also sounds great.

Love It

By Charles Evatt

from Little Rock Arkansas

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

I'm the music Director at my church so we have to learn new songs constantly with different band member each week. a Good Clear acoustic tone that the rest of the band can anchor to is essential to do what we do. this makes any guitar sound 10 times better. from hear on out i probably wont pay extra for nice on board electronics on an acoustic guitar. even if it is just a single source pickup with bare min electronics, the guitar will sound amazing through this thing

Ya gotta have it!!

By JohnnyFatFingers

from RSM, CA

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

What a shame!! I have been playing my guitars without one of these?? For how long?? The L.R. Baggs Para D.I. IS all they say and more. This just brings sound to life. If you play an acoustic through an amp without one of these you are missing out.

Best thing to happen to a acoustic guitar D.I.

By R E Rawhoof

from Rockford, Il.

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

I first purchased the LR Baggs Anthem pic up system and thought I wasted $300.00. It was installed in a custom ordered Martin OM-15. I had it built because a used one could not be found during the two years I've been searching. I didn't want what the pic ups Martin offered so it arrived a real acoustic. The pic up system was very disappointing. In desparation I consulted a gear tech that I know and he highly recommended the LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI. Not long after plugging in and a little tweaking, my guitar came to life. This is the tone I've been searching for. I plugged in my Taylor "Chris Proctor" signature model and it sounded better than ever. The Taylor always got compliments at my gigs without a DI. This piece of gear is awesome. You gotta get this regardless of what pic up system or guitar you have. Playing with a balanced signal and all the bennies this DI offers is a must.

Works Great

By Glen

from Portland, Or

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

I have really enjoyed my LR Baggs acoustic di box. It has worked great for me and i get a great sound out of my acoustic guitar. I can really tell the difference from a cheaper di box to this one. This one was definitely worth the few extra dollars it cost

Great, but slightly expensive

By TD

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about LR Baggs Para Acoustic Guitar DI and Preamp:

I use this at the church where I do sound. the guitarist uses (what I believe is) a Seagull Coastline S6 Slim guitar. Plugged into this, it brings the guitar to life. We run it through a Yamaha LS9-32 mixer. Even without the mixer's compresor, EQ, and reverb, this DI box acts a super-preamp for the guitar, adding everything but 'verb to the signal. This allows the performer much more judgement for their guitar tone (usually determined by the sound engineer) and leaves everyone happier and stress-free. Although the price seems a little steep for what you get, it is much cheaper than buying a rack of compressors, EQ's, etc. for your guitar or wasting money on a cheaply-made acoustic guitar effects pedal. If you're willing to shell out the money, you'll be quite happy with the results!
