L.R. Baggs Lyric Classical
 
A natural-sounding amplification solution for nylon-string guitars.
July 22, 2014

In the 30 years since the company’s founding, L.R. Baggs has continuously advanced its approaches to acoustic instrument amplification. Several years ago, Baggs developed the Anthem system for steel-string guitars, which featured the TruMic, a significant advance in the internally mounted microphone technology Baggs has long used as part of other multisource pickup systems. Combining an undersaddle pickup with a mic mounted to the guitar’s bridge plate, the Anthem uses an advanced preamp design that creates a very realistic tone. Since some players prefer not to have a pickup in their guitar at all, Baggs kept developing the unit’s TruMic microphone and preamp, ultimately coming up with the Lyric, an internal microphone system that works without a pickup. Having introduced a version for steel-string guitars in 2013, Baggs now offers a system designed for nylon-string guitars, demonstrated here installed in a guitar built by Lloyd Baggs in 1982.

SPECS: Miniature, lightweight guitar microphone. Endpin-mounted preamp. Volume control. $199 street. lrbaggs.com
