LR Baggs Session-VTC Active Undersaddle Acoustic Pickup

Product Description:

The LR Baggs Session VTC pickup and preamp system was inspired by the company's drive to deliver the best and most natural-sounding acoustic-electric products in the world. This system uses new technology to add harmonic content to your tone for creating the sound of an expertly recorded acoustic guitar that you can take onstage. The Session VTC's dynamic EQ compresses certain frequencies on the fly to eliminate any trouble tonalities. And it utilizes the company's popular Element pickup to read the sound of your guitar's top, avoiding the unappealing piezo "quack." The Session VTC may just be the new standard in acoustic-electric tone.

Puts studio sound onstage

In creating their Handcrafted Video Sessions — a YouTube series of live performances by a slew of LR Baggs artists — the company was inspired to go the extra mile in putting high-quality acoustic tone in a pickup system. With the addition of added harmonics, the Session VTC warms your acoustic's plugged-in tone. This imparts a tape-like saturation that is next to impossible to get outside of the studio. As a matter of fact, the company is so passionate about the Session VTC's tone that they wanted to give it the tone of "an experienced audio engineer using some of the world’s finest studio gear."

EQ that responds to your playing

Keeping with the "studio-like tone" promise, LR Baggs outfitted this system with dynamic EQ. In essence, this is a series of compressors over the low, mid, and high frequencies that respond in real time to the way you play your guitar. It's much like having your own studio engineer at the gig. This dynamic EQ is ideal for eliminating any problematic frequencies that can muddy up your tone or take off into howling feedback at loud volumes. It also evens your tone and sustain the harder you play. Once you experience dynamic EQ, you'll wonder how you lived without it.

Element pickup

The Element under-saddle transducer has a minimalist design and broad surface contact area that lets it get the most out of your instrument. It is engineered to sense every movement of your guitar's top, delivering natural tone that is free of the typical piezo "quack" that can plague typical under-saddle designs. It is also a fantastic way for modern fingerstyle players to get the most from their percussive techniques. And with controls located conveniently in the soundhole, you won't have an unsightly preamp cut into the side of your guitar.
