Pickup, preamp jack and volume control This is the most popular complete iBeam setup for X-braced steel string guitars. It features a discrete class-A preamp/endpin jack with pre-contoured EQ for plug-and-play convenience, plus a handy soundhole-mounted mini volume control.
L.R. Baggs iBeam Active Pickup System features the iBeam bridge plate transducer, adhering to the bridge plate beneath the soundboard. It weighs only 8 grams (1/3 ounce), and won't alter the unplugged sound of the instrument.
iBeam is faithful to the tone and attack of any playing style, with full dynamic range and excellent string balance, but without the harshness of piezo transducers. It features the best characteristics of a studio microphone, with less of the feedback that can occur with many internal mini mics. A simple installation jig is included, with complete instructions to help you find the ideal pickup placement inside the guitar for optimum sound.
The new mini volume control adheres to the edge of the guitar's soundhole for unobtrusive fingertip access. An easy no-drill self-adhesive mesh battery mounting bag is included. 9-volt battery required.
