Acoustic Instrument Pickups and Preamps
ACOUSTIC GUITAR MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Studio Mic'd Sound Wherever You Perform
The Award-winning Anthem series, featuring our patented TRU•MIC technology, seamlessly combines a proprietary condenser microphone with our acclaimed Element pickup to deliver the warmth and fidelity of a studio-mic’d guitar anywhere you perform.
At the heart of the Anthem is a revolutionary microphone engineered to capture a dynamic studio-mic’d sound for any live performance. The TRU•MIC mounts to the underside of the bridge plate and hovers just 3 mm above its surface to take advantage of the PZM or “boundary” effect. This proprietary mounting system, combined with noise cancellation, frees the mic to perform as if it were outside of the guitar in a studio and maintain remarkable feedback suppression for the stage. The result is a balanced frequency response with excellent clarity for the purest sound you have ever heard amplified. We have paired the Element pickup with the TRU•MIC to provide solidity and punch for low frequencies.
Beyond Pickups. Beyond Compare.
There's no argument that a microphone is the best way to capture the sound of an acoustic guitar, but until now, using a microphone 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-and-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The microphone 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 microphone’s proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal microphone, Lyric employs noise canceling technology that rejects “boxy” reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patented 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 “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 microphone’s sweetness no matter how hard you play. The third innovation 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.
OTHER INSTRUMENT PICKUPS
Leveraging the unitary design that made our Violin Pickup a staple for thousands of performing musicians, we now mold our same miniature vibration sensor directly into a 5/8” banjo bridge.
Our Violin Pickup is a miniature vibration sensor cast directly into a Superieur Despiau “Two Tree” maple bridge for maximum sensitivity and signal transfer. As an integral part of the bridge, it effortlessly captures the instrument’s inherent dynamics.
RADIUS MANDOLIN PICKUP
The Radius mandolin pickup is a hi-tech contact sensor that was designed to emulate the sound of a mic without the instability associated with microphones.
FIVE.O UKULELE PICKUP
The FIVE.O is small, light-weight, and best of all, specifically engineered to track the uke’s unmistakably unique voice.
ACOUSTIC GUITAR PREAMP
Every Tool You Need in One Acoustic Pedal
We created the Venue DI so you can travel light, set up fast and sound incredible anywhere you plug in. The Venue DI gives you complete control by combining a full-isolation DI output, 5-band EQ with adjustable low & hi-mid bands, variable clean boost and chromatic tuner all in one acoustic pedal. With its all-discrete signal path, hi-graded semiconductors and exclusive use of audiophile grade film capacitors, the Venue DI is on par with the world’s elite preamps and provides a studio quality sound for the stage.
