The L. R. Baggs Lyric Classical pairs TRU•MIC technology with a high-fidelity preamplifier specially crafted for nylon string guitars. Engineered for live performances, the Lyric Classical provides many of the same benefits as external mic’ing while achieving unprecedented feedback resistance and isolation for the stage.
A microphone is the best way to capture the sound of a classical guitar. Using TRU•MIC technology, L.R. Baggs Lyric Classical’s microphone accurately transports your guitar’s actual voice to a live audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience.
The featherweight Lyric Classical microphone, high-graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside of the bridge plate with simple peel-and-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The microphone leverages the “pressure-zone” principle by positioning the capsule just 3 mm from the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. The microphone’s proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal microphone, Lyric Classical employs noise canceling technology that rejects reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patent pending invention enables the mic to act as if it were outside of the guitar, delivering a clear and open performance.
L.R. Baggs Lyric Classical features include:
- TRU•MIC noise-canceling technology
- No pickup
- Analog signal conditioning
- All discrete mic preamplifier
- Soundhole volume control
- Mic presence control
