      Comments about LR Baggs Session DI Acoustic Guitar Direct Box and Preamp:

      I had been using the LR Baggs Venue DI for a good while and was very pleased with the sound that I got from it (overall). But it always seemed there was a little something missing in terms of "that perfect sound" that I was striving for. I tried the Session DI based on some video reviews I saw and have been thrilled with my results. I'm finally getting that "warm", "full" sound that I have been seeking for a long, long time and it is super easy to use and understand. I use it in conjunction with the Venue DI and couldn't be happier. My rig is complete, for now:)

          This makes even low end guitars sound amazing. I use it to enhance and differentiate guitars to something that I am looking for.

          Comments about LR Baggs Session DI Acoustic Guitar Direct Box and Preamp:

          its easy to use the product, has a lot of ways to improve your sound. But it doesnt work for everybody in my opinion. i have a taylor 414ce and a gs mini koa (undersaddle pickup). Always looking for the perfect acoustic sound i bought this pedal. I´ve try it alone, with different pa systems and also with a fishman aura spectrum, fishman tone deq and on live performances a tc hellicon voicelive. in short, my gs mini sounds amazing with this, cant imagine a live performance without it. not such a perceptible upgrade using it with the 414ce. This pedal adds a more round, natural sound, it reduces that synthetic "plastic" sound that comes from undersaddle pickups and is evident when strumming, but when fingerpicking you get the most from this pedal. This adds colour and naturality, youll still need a pedal tuner, an eq, and effects etc. This makes a huge but sutil improvement on your acoustics that everybody will notice. Lr baggs has an amazing quality and perfect taste for acoustics so you wont get wrong with this, thou you may have other pedals first to buy before spending 250 for an amazing sound polisher.
