A revolutionary contact pickup for X-braced steel-string guitars. The iBeam is faithful to the tone, attack and liveliness of any playing style, with full dynamic range and string balance, and without the "quack" of piezo transducers. It has the best characteristics of a studio microphone, without the feedback that can occur with many internal mini mics.

L.R. Baggs iBeam Transducer adheres 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.

Strapjack and instructions are included.

This iBeam Transducer is a pickup only; a preamp is recommended:
L.R. Baggs Para-Acoustic D.I. Preamp

Pickup, preamp jack and volume control is bundled together in the L.R. Baggs iBeam Active Pickup System.

Natural sound but needs a pre-amp

The iBeam is easy to install and performs well giving a very natural sound overall. I agree with a previous reviewer that it needs to be paired with a good pre-amp. I also use the GigPro and would recommend this combination.

iBeam Transducer

This was installed this on a Martin D-15M. I wanted a pickup that would reproduce the rich mahogany sounds without altering the visual appearance of the guitar. This definitely did the trick. It is extremely light, almost unbelievably so, and does not alter the vibrations of the soundboard enough to change its tone.

It absolutely must be paired with a good acoustic pre-amp. I tested this with an acoustic amp with built-in pre-, but it was horribly weak sounding. I paired it with the LR Baggs Gigpro and the guitar came to life through an amp.

Installation is extremely easy and the mounting jig provided worked fantastically.

Fantastic

This is my first L.R. Baggs iBeam installation. I put it in a relatively thin line flat top guitar that I built...Wow! Brilliant highs and deep lows. This guitar has come to life in a big way. I highly recommend the iBeam.

LR Baggs iBeam

I needed a pick up for my Maton acoustic guitar that was going to faithfully reproduce it's acoustic tones and was easy enough for an amateur luthier to install. Got all that! Installed without problem and sounds as sweet as the natural instrument.
