It’s in the Baggs! The LR Baggs Acoustic Reference Amplifier offers all the high quality sound and capability you need as a solo acoustic performance artist in a small 28lbs package! ”The Acoustic Reference Amplifier blends cutting edge loudspeaker design, two studio quality all discrete preamp channels and a 200W state-of-the-art digital poweramp in a beautiful and durable lightweight enclosure that redefines what is possible in a small portable amplifier.” – LR Baggs
The LR Baggs Acoustic Reference Amplifier
provides a rich, clear sound that carries and fills space using a patented new 9” honeycomb-diaphram loudspeaker
that offers 140 degree range conical sound field at 110dB volume.
The one flat diaphram producing all frequencies allows clear and detailed harmonics to align naturally, eliminating crossovers or distortions
common in multi-way speakers that can smear or muddy the sound.
The LR Baggs Acoustic Reference Amplifier preamp
uses 100% discrete circuitry
making it comparable to some of the highest fidelity and performance preamps in the world.
LR Baggs has also engineered a custom spring reverb and driver circuit
specifically for a reverb effect that they are sure you will love!
The power amplifier is a cutting edge 200 Watt Digital high fidelity amp creating a warm, transparent sound
that offers ample power to deliver all the colorful, yet demanding dynamics of your acoustic guitar. Why LR Baggs?
Even after winning multiple Acoustic Guitar magazine Players Choice Gold Awards and two consecutive MIPAs (the music products industry’s Oscar) for best pickups, best preamps, and most popular guitar performance gear manufacturer, LR Baggs continues to push the cutting edge in guitar amplification each year in an endeavor to use the talents and opportunities God has given them.

Overall Rating for LR Baggs Acoustic Reference Amplifier
|(based on 1 review)| Compared the Baggs Core 1 to the AER Compact 60. The Baggs was much warmer, natural sounding and seemed to fill the room with all frequencies sounding 'lush'. Used a Baggs Anthem pickup in a Martin Custom 000-28 12 fret cutaway guitar. (E.I. Rosewood/Adi spruce top)
