Item Description

"LR Baggs new-at-NAMM Lyric acoustic microphone system impressed us with its unobtrusive design, but blew us away with its super-organic, natural tones and feedback resistance."

There's no argument that a mic is the best way to capture the sound of an acoustic guitar, but until now, using a mic for most live performances has been an elusive dream. Lyric, the next step in Tru•Mic technology, is the long overdue realization of this dream. Without a pickup, Lyric's microphone accurately transports your guitar's actual voice to a live audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience.

Our featherweight microphone, each high-graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside of the bridge plate with simple peel-&-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The mic leverages the "pressure-zone" principle by positioning the capsule just 3mm from the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. And the mic's proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal mic, Lyric employs noise canceling technology that rejects "boxy" reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patent pending minor miracle enables the mic to act as if it were outside of the guitar delivering a clear and open performance.

In a studio, you would have to use an entire rack of gear to achieve what we have built into Lyric's tiny circuit board. Our lead engineer, Tommy Linn, created several patent pending "black box" circuit innovations that unlock the potential of the microphone. The first tightens the lower frequencies for a punchier attack with natural dynamics. The second maintains the mic's sweetness no matter how hard you play. The third innovation, not patent pending but useful, is an adjustable "presence" control that dials high frequency response perfectly for your guitar. Wrap all of this in all discrete, high-fidelity mic pre and you have a world class microphone system as an integral part of your guitar anywhere you plug in.

• TRU•MIC noise canceling technology
• No pickup
• Analog signal conditioning
• All discrete mic preamplifier

A step up from the iBeam.
September 17, 2019
I bought this Lyric pickup to replace an iBeam on a 1994 Gibson Gospel model guitar. There are similarities to the iBeam but it's much livelier and truer to the acoustic presence of the guitar. A step up I am very glad that I made.
Great pick up

This is an awesome pick up that beats anything in its price range. I love the fact that it sounds so natural and is unobtrusive in its design and installation is a breeze!

Still acoustic . . . just louder

If you want your acoustic guitar to sound electric, don't get the Lyric. Get a piezo instead, or, better yet, get an electric guitar. But if you want it to sound like an acoustic, just louder, then this is the one you want. It's the most natural sounding amplification for an acoustic I've heard yet. And it pairs beautifully with the Baggs Para Acoustic DI, giving you full control over the sound contour. I've got Lyrics on my Martin D-28 and my Taylor GS7, and both work beautifully.
  • Natural sound

Tried it...sold it

This product is very easy to install, the volume/tone knobs come mounted in the soundhole and every part mounts to the guitar with 3M adhesive tapes (included) except for the jack plug.

It produces very natural tone, and it feels very very natural capturing the sound of your fingers sweeping against strings. BUT you won't get that powerful bass and punch you get with a piezo, and will certainly need some eq-ing to do. I have sold mine because for the gigs i do, I don't find it useful.

I think the combination of piezo and mic would be the right thing, and in my opinion LR Baggs anthem will be the next thing I will try.

Lr Baggs lyric was tested on Ovation legend 1617 and martin 000RS1
  • Very natural sounding
  • Easy to install
