As with the other acoustic pickups we use, L.R. Baggs has made a two piece under saddle element specially for us and adjusted the mountings for the inside sound-hole controls to suit our A-frame bracing. The Anthem has a naturally warm and pure acoustic tone. The ability to blend in the signal from the under-bridge mic to a variety of extents is helpful both in terms of tone and feedback reduction. The overall output is lower than others and so input gain will have to be adjusted on an amp and / or mixing desk. This is our default system and is also available as a single saddle version if required for 12 String, Lowden Jazz and Fan Fret models.
