The feedback-fighting power of a piezo with the sound of a studio microphone
When it comes to capturing the sound of your favorite acoustic guitar, there's really no question about it: nothing sounds as good as a quality condenser microphone. But in most cases, using a sensitive studio mic live is a recipe for instant feedback. And while piezo pickups offer high gain before feedback, they seldom sound fantastic. Thanks to its unique pressure-zone design and under-saddle position, the LR Baggs Lyric Classical microphone is able to capture full and vibrant acoustic tone, while remaining shielded from feedback-causing reflections. There's no doubt about it, the Lyric Classical is the system to get for full and accurate acoustic sound.
Patent-pending technologies provide unbelievably high-fidelity sound
One of the drawbacks of using an internal acoustic guitar microphone is the boxiness of their sound. By placing the featherweight pressure-zone microphone element less than 3mm from the top of your guitar, the LR Baggs Lyric Classical effectively uses the most resonant part of your instrument as its diaphragm. The rest of the magic occurs in the "black box" technologies within the Lyric Classical itself. This includes a noise-canceling system that rejects the boxy midrange reflections outright plus one bit of genius circuitry that tightens your low end, and another that sweetens your highs no matter how hard your play. The effect is nothing short of astonishing.
Painlessly simple installation will have you up and playing in no time
If you already have a bored-out strap pin, then installing the complete LR Baggs Lyric Classical microphone and preamplifier system is freakishly simple. First, you attach the microphone itself to the underside of the bridge plate via a simple, ultra-thin peel-and-stick adhesive pad, and the soundhole controls mount similarly. The Lyric Classical's endpin preamp is simple enough to set in place too, but we'd recommend having a professional, such as one of the experts in Sweetwater's own guitar workshop, do the actual drilling and installation. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer for further details.
