LR Baggs Para DI or Fishman Pro-EQ?

jmichaels77

Looking for a live preamp/DI. Primarily using 500 series Taylor with Expression System. Price not an issue. Which sounds best, LR Baggs or Fishman? Open to other suggestions.

What are you trying to achieve, exactly?
If you just need a high quality D.I. I'd spend money on a Radial, Countryman, or BSS box instead.
If you're looking for tone-shaping, I'll say that I'm partial towards L.R. Baggs and haven't had any tone issues with any of their products. That said, the Para D.I. isn't really intended for someone in your situation (the Expression system already has E.Q. and balances your signal).
