The anthem is a revolutionary new amplification system that uses a microphone to capture the true voice and dynamics of an acoustic guitar and in a way that allows you to play really loud before feedback.


"I could have never anticipated this and I still can't hardly believe it." - John Standefer, 2002 National Finger Style Guitar Champion

LOUD - ANALOG - REAL

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.

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, LR Baggs 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 3mm 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 PICKUP

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. LR Baggs has 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.
