From Our Research Team:
Natural Amplified Sound From Your Acoustic!The LR Baggs Anthem Tru-Mic Acoustic Pickup will change the way you look at mic pickups! This feedback-busting, natural-sounding pickup is the result of over 30 years of effort. There's no modeling and no illusions going on here. The Anthem is strictly a well-designed microphone that picks up your guitar - clean, clear, and full of dynamics. While many guitar mics are way too prone to feedback or just as bad... give you that annoying "boxy sound" when used alone... the LR Baggs Anthem is like having your acoustic sound just "turned up," so it's full of detail, warmth, and personality.
So how does it work? We won't launch entirely into all the nitty gritty and the exhausting research the LR Baggs team went through to design the Anthem. What we will say is that they developed proprietary noise-canceling technology that avoids that helps avoid that honky/boxy sound and keep your acoustic tone sounding pure and natural. Plus, a specially designed placement system picks up the sound of the vibrations of your entire soundboard, so the Anthem is surprisingly free of placement issues.
The control unit of the Anthem is extremely lightweight and features just the essentials: Volume, Mix, and Phase. It nestles inside the soundhole for easy fingertip access. With the Mix control, you can blend between the augmented mic and the full-range pickup. There's also a multi-segment battery check to maximize battery life.

by Steve Rodin from Fairview (Portland OR)I recently had a Breedlove Custom guitar built for me. I was asked if I wanted the Anthem Tru-Voice system. I did not know what it was so I said no and went with the M1 passive soundhole pickup. I ... read more [+]have used 4 such pickups in prior purchases, so I thought it was the best. For some reason, that match was not a good one for me. Never like the tone and touch sounds were loud as string sounds. What I wanted was the Taylor ES system in my Breedlove... but NO WAY JOSE! Then I caught wind of the collaboration between Breedlove and LR Baggs in the design of a NEW PICKUP SYSTEM. I the new Breedloves, this is a factory set blend version of this system. The new Breedlove Voice system is built on the work of Baggs & Breedlove to master acoustic sound for live performance.

THEY DID IT!!! You can now get studio quality miked sound at any volume without feedback. Gotta tell you this is a really bright, lively, full spectrum sound. You can turn the volume up and play extremely soft and get the tone you get acoustically but louder. I saw a review where someone said they thought this was the new leader... No 1. Then the said, second place is no longer in the rear view mirror. Let me tell you, my Taylor 814ce acoustic sound is almost the same as the Breedlove. Plugged in... Breedlove with Anthem sounds natural, 814 sounds a bit metalic. Never noticed that until now. If you like the ES, you'll be blown away by this pickup.
IT IS THAT GOOD! close [-]
