LR Baggs StagePro Element
The Stagepro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions. The system includes the Element pickup and pre-wired strapjack.
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, L.R.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. Every pickup is made at their California factory and is pre-tested in a guitar for output and balance.
