LR Baggs Gigpro Universal Preamp
The Para DI, Gigpro and Mixpro are three universal preamps from LR Baggs that will improve the tone of just about any pickup you plug into them. All of these preamps feature adjustable gain, class "A" discrete circuitry, and a phase button to fight feedback. These preamps are versatile enough to work with acoustic guitars, electric guitars, violins, bass, and other stringed instruments. LR Baggs endorsers include: Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Dixie Chicks, Lenny Kravitz, Vince Gill, Kathy Mattea, Janis Ian, Phil Keaggy, Pete Anderson.
The Gigpro is a smaller single channel belt clip preamp that is modeled after the Para DI and will work with almost any type of pickup or mini-mic. Place it on your belt or guitar strap and it will give you fingertip control of your sound right at your side.

Their electronics are the product of 20 years of relentless improvement and the quest for perfection. Their quality has been recognized with great reviews and numerous awards. They have also garnered a well deserved reputation as the most advanced and best sounding circuitry for pickups on the planet. They are magic. You can be assured that you will sound your absolute best when you use any L.R. Baggs preamp.
The Gigpro is a single-channel belt clip preamp that will work with most pickups. It also provides 9V phantom power for mini-mics and other phantom powered onboard electronics. They have pared the features down to the bare essentials but you will find everything you need to get the best sound possible from your pickup. The EQ, for example, has only two bands plus a variable low cut but you will be amazed at how flexible and intuitive it is to use.
The circuitry is generally modeled after the ever-popular Para Acoustic D.I. but L.R. Baggs has made several key innovations. First, the circuitry is 100% Class A and discrete from input to output. Secondly, they have designed the circuitry in a way that makes the sound of the preamp almost tube like. Third, the EQ is entirely passive. Fourth, they have used only the highest grade audiophile components. When you add it up, the Gigpro is the best sounding, easiest to use, most effective and quietest preamp that L.R. Baggs has ever created. Big things do come in small packages.
"From the first chords played through the Gigpro, there was a collective gasp from the room. Anything, including electric guitars and the X-Bridge sounds amazing through the Gigpro." -Dan Altilio, Top Gear Pro Shop
