Item Description

The iBeam Active pairs the iBeam with a pre-contoured, proprietary, all-discrete class A FET endpin preamp with soundhole volume control. The sweet and ultra-quiet audiophile-grade preamp faithfully amplifies every nuance of the pickup. Superior sound and performance is built-in for easy plug-andplay performance. An auxiliary passive channel is also available for adding a secondary pickup. The iBeam Active is also great for direct studio or home recording. Comparison tests have demonstrated that the fidelity of this system is a great alternative to studio microphones.

I can't see how you could possibly improve upon this system. Compared to other types of pickups (piezo, magnetic, microphone-based etc.) this is the most natural sounding and dynamic option available. Through a good PA, set flat and well balanced, it sounds like you're sitting right in front of the guitar. What you're hearing the the soundboard and bridgeplate of your guitar, the true representation of the the rest of the body is amplifying naturally. Installation is a breeze compared to retrofitting a guitar for a piezo transducer. I would recommend this to anyone who wants the audience to hear how good their guitar actually sounds.

I purchased this model of the LR Baggs because of they way the pickup mount design. I was not sure how it would compare to the under saddle version...which I have on another acoustic. I was very surprised..sound fantastic!. Glad I went with this model. Plus, I really hate drilling holes.

Purchased the iBeam. Installed it myself with my friend Sam onto my 2006 Martin D28. It's been in for 5 years. It sounds fantastic. Paired it up with the L.R. Baggs pre amp and it sounds even better.
  • easy to install. volume control lets you control sound output.
  • None
