Product Description

After 30 years of effort LR Baggs has done the very thing that every amplified acoustic guitarist has dreamed about and the very thing that no other pickup manufacturer has been capable of—unlocking the potential of a microphone to capture the very essence of your guitar with high feedback resistance for demanding stages.

LR Baggs Anthem Acoustic Guitar Pickup and Mic Features

  • Anthem Tru-Mic carries the majority of the guitars’ frequency range
  • The mic is highly feedback-resistant
  • Noise cancelation eliminates any annoying honky or boxy qualities inside the guitar
  • The Element Pickup carries only the lowest frequencies
  • One size fits most common string spacings and saddle widths
  • Even string-to-string balance
  • Soundhole preamp includes mix wheel, volume control, battery check, phase inversion and mic trim controls
  • Discrete class A preamp with preset crossover
  • Comes with Battery Bag for secure and unobtrusive battery retention
Not obvious but equally important is that the natural ease and dynamics of the Anthem Tru-Mic liberates you to play freely without having to compensate for the pickup system. Now you’re free to play the way you like, plugged in or not.

For the Anthem we used no modeling, no illusions, it’s not “like” a mic, it’s not “like” your guitar. This is a mic and what you will experience is your guitar, loud and with the fidelity and dynamics that come from a real microphone.

TRU • MIC TECHNOLOGY
At the heart of the patent pending Anthem is a revolutionary new type of microphone. Utilizing a proprietary noise canceling mic, the Anthem Tru-Mic eliminates any annoying honky or boxy qualities that have been previously associated with internal mic’ing, leaving the pure and natural sound of your guitar the way only a real mic is capable of doing.

Because the mic is positioned within a few millimeters of the guitar top, it has very high gain before feedback. The mic housing mounts easily to the bridge plate and the mic capsule hovers just 3 mm above its surface to take advantage of the PZM or “boundary” effect. This Tru-Mic technology picks up the sound of the vibrations of the entire soundboard and makes the mic unusually free from placement issues.

MIC AND PICK-UP A RADICAL NEW TECHNOLOGY
The sound quality and feedback resistance of the Anthem Tru-Mic now allows the mic to be the primary sound source in a mic/pickup system. This is unlike previous systems where only a small amount of the mic could be used to add some “air” to the dominant pickup signal. This is a radical new relationship between a mic and a pickup, as all of the detail, warmth and personality of your guitar is captured by the Tru-mic. The mic is augmented, for only the very lowest frequencies, by our Element under saddle pickup.

CONTROLS
The feather-weight control unit contains all of the essentials; volume, mix and phase. It nestles securely just inside of the soundhole for easy fingertip access. The mix control allows a full blend between the augmented mic and full range pickup. A multi-segment battery check allows you to maximize battery life and peace of mind.

Under the hood is an all discrete preamp/mixer with our pure, clean LR Baggs signature sound that is trusted by top artists around the world. We have done all of the engineering so you can just plug in and enjoy the real sound of your guitar and the way you play, night after night.

What is your opinion of this product?
The LR Baggs Anthem pickup was everything I had hoped that it could be. After watching several videos I decided to pull the trigger! My acoustic is a 1991 Gibson J30, and I wanted to make sure I went with a pickup that would compliment the authentic tones of my guitar. I couldn’t have chose a better pickup. The sound is so warm, and rich. I have already tracked some acoustic guitar in the studio and it turned out Amazing! I paired it up with a LR Baggs Venue and I feel like I am completely set with my acoustic rig!!! I look forward to many years of use. Thank you LR Baggs for making a pickup that will become a staple in acoustic players rigs no mater what Style of music they play!!!

What is your opinion of this product?
If you want your guitar to sound as good plugged in as it does straight acoustic then look no further. Trust all the reviews you’ve seen videos of and read and buy it already! You will not be disappointed in the anthem. Very natural sound, no quack, easy to install, what’s not to love!

Amazing sound, tone and flexibility
What is your opinion of this product?
If you want the great acoustic guitar sounds like you hear on great records through a great sound system, this is it. I was blown away by the natural beauty of the sounds I got through a mid-range sound system. The original pickup in my guitar (J100X) sounded chingy to me, so I'd been using a Fishman Rare Earth Humbucker for years, but aesthetically the dangling cable wasn't working for me. After doing a little research I chose the Anthem, and though I was hesitant to pull the trigger, I am so happy I did. Worth every penny and then some, and AMS made it affordable. If you paid $$$ for an acoustic, don't cheat yourself with anything less.

The other rave reviews are true
What is your opinion of this product?
I replaced the passive under bridge pickup in my LL-16D Yamaha with this system. The change was amazingly easy, no drilling or other mods. The difference in plugged in sound is breathtaking. I have 2 more guitars that will have this system installed in them before they see the stage again.

Hurray! Volume, tone sans feedback!!
What is your opinion of this product?
Another classic example of getting what you pay for...It sounds like my Guild jumbo (i.e., resonant, acoustic tone)at rock band volume! Easy to install if you have rudimentary wood-working skills. And coolest of all nearly no feedback at volume! Move over Pete!!
