LR Baggs iBeam Active System Bridge Plate Pickup With Endpin Preamp & Volume Control
The iBeam?s MIPA award-winning design employs a matched pair of virtually weightless film sensors that flex with the soundboard to trace your guitar?s voice much like diaphragms in a stereo mic. A key advantage over typical bridge plate sensors is the iBeam?s ?cardioid? like response pattern that inhibits feedback and string squeak while selectively admitting rich tone-producing vibrations. Weighing less than 1/3 of an ounce, the pickup will not alter the guitar?s natural acoustics and easily mounts to the bridge plate with peel-and-stick adhesive.
The iBeam Active pairs the iBeam with an all-discrete Class A endpin preamp with soundhole volume control. The sweet and ultra-quiet audiophile-grade preamp faithfully amplifies every nuance of the pickup. Superior sound and performance is built in for easy plug-and-play performance. An auxiliary passive channel is also available for adding a secondary pickup.
The iBeam Active is also great for direct studio or home recording. Comparison tests have demonstrated that the fidelity of this system is a great alternative to studio microphones.
