Product Description

Common undersaddle pickups depend on string attack to directly compress the sensors for their sound.This direct pressure is a root cause of the infamous “quack”.

In contrast, LR Baggs' patented Element derives output from the movement of the soundboard and rejects string attack to minimize quack.

Its flexible film sensor, thin as a human hair, mirrors the soundboard’s movement as you play to capture the guitar’s actual voice and its most delicate nuances.

In addition, the pickup’s minimalist construction removes most of its influence on the acoustic properties, creates an intimate coupling between the sensor and guitar for the highest fidelity possible, and makes the Element amazingly reliable.

Multi-band compression has long been a secret of mastering rooms worldwide to unlock the warmth and natural dynamics of recorded instruments.

The Element VTC’s all-discrete, Class A preamp leverages this studio elixir with a proprietary analog compressor that operates below 400Hz.

The compressor is tuned to reflect the actual dynamics of the acoustic guitar, creating in live performance the superior warmth and natural balance of tone achieved in professional studio mastered sound.

Includes soundhole mounted volume and treble tone controls.

Every pickup is made in LR Baggs' California factory and is pre-tested in a guitar for output and balance.

  • Soundhole mounted volume and tone control
  • Built-in LF compressor
