The Missing Link Between Your Guitar and the StageIf you're looking for a premium under-saddle pickup to add to your acoustic guitar, then check out the Element Active System by LR Baggs. The under-saddle transducer element itself has a minimalist design and broad surface contact area that lets it get the most out of your instrument. The Element Active System also gives you an active, Class A endpin-mounted preamp with plug-in-and-play convenience, so you never have to fumble around for the on/off switch — just plug in and it turns on. The removable volume control mounts just inside the soundhole for easy access. And installing the entire Element Active System in most acoustic guitars is easy and doesn't require permanently altering your instrument.

LR Baggs Element Active System
by Ryan Livingston from MichiganI love this thing! For years, I've been consistently unhappy with everything I've used to amp my Taylor 113ce. You name it -I've tried it: Taylor and Fishman under-the-saddle systems, sound hole mics... read more [+], sound hole pickups, and even the I-beam. Most were great for finger style suff for me as long as I didn't get to physical with the guitar -and I love to jump around with that guitar. Most of the time, I like to play hard with a light pick. Feedback and body noise just made any non-under saddle pickup system unacceptable for my preferences and style of playing. The other big problem -I just couldn't get good "definition" from my strings with most of those systems. Most other systems would put out tone, but I really wanted the whole sound of each string. I finally tried the LR Baggs Element Active System and got exactly what I wanted: no unacceptable feedback, the least body noise of anything I've ever tried, excellent battery life, no noise, and best of all, great amplification of the sound I really want to pull from my guitar for the way I play -and I'm guessing that 90% of players play the way I do. Thank you LR Baggs!!! I don't know if it was dumb luck or engineering genius, but I don't care. Either way, you've saved my life with this thing! close [-]
