LR Baggs Lyric Acoustic Guitar Microphone Pickup

Stick this featherweight microphone-style acoustic pickup to the underside of the bridge plate for a crystal-clear sound that is all about your guitar.
There's no argument that a mic is the best way to capture the sound of an acoustic guitar, but until now, using a mic for most live performances has been an elusive dream. LR Baggs' Lyric, the next step in Tru-Mic technology, is the long overdue realization of this dream. Without a pickup, Lyric's microphone accurately transports your guitar's actual voice to a live audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience.

Tru-Mic Technology

This featherweight microphone, high-graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside of the bridge plate with simple peel-and-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The mic leverages the "pressure-zone" principle by positioning the capsule just 3mm from the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. And the mic's proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal mic, Lyric employs noise-canceling technology that rejects "boxy" reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patent-pending minor miracle enables the mic to act as if it were outside of the guitar delivering a clear and open performance.

Circuit Innovations

In a studio, you would have to use an entire rack of gear to achieve what we have built into Lyric's tiny circuit board. Our lead engineer, Tommy Linn, created several patent-pending "black box" circuit innovations that unlock the potential of the microphone. The first tightens the lower read more frequencies for a punchier attack with natural dynamics. The second maintains the mic's sweetness no matter how hard you play. The third innovation is an adjustable "presence" control that dials in high-frequency response perfectly for your guitar. Wrap all of this in a discrete, high-fidelity mic pre and you have a world-class microphone system as an integral part of your guitar anywhere you plug in.

"Great Acoustic Pickup"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I installed this in my Guild F130R. It sounds great and provides the amplification I need for playing out. I'm getting no feedback from this pickup which is another plus. The sound is natural (as it is a microphone) without any piezo quack. Installation was relatively easy. If you are new to installation (as I was) you need to know that a standard end-pin is only 3/8" and you will need a 1/2" hole to accommodate the end-pin jack. A tapered reamer is recommended for this. Check out youtube there are plenty of how to videos on endpin jack installation.
