Think you know what an internal microphone is all about? Think again. This mic will shatter your preconceptions.

This revolutionary new amplification system features our patent pending, Tru-Mic microphone technology. The mic is mounted to the bridge plate inside of the guitar to capture the majority of your guitar's true voice in a way that only a microphone is capable of - plus it is amazingly feedback resistant. Our Element under saddle pickup carries only the lowest frequencies for punch and authority.

A sound hole mounted controller has volume, mix and phase controls with a battery check feature so you can always be sure of your battery at any gig.

Now you can plug in, crank it and sound more real than you ever thought possible.

After 30 years of effort, we have done the very thing that every amplified acoustic guitarist has dreamed about and the very thing that no other pickup manufacturer has been capable of: unlocking the potential of a microphone to capture the very essence of your guitar, with high feedback resistance for demanding stages.

Not obvious but equally important is that the natural ease and dynamics of the Anthem Tru-Mic liberates you to play freely without having to compensate for the pickup system. Now you're free to play the way you like, plugged in or not.

For the Anthem, we used no modeling, no illusions, it's not "like" a mic, it's not "like" your guitar. This is a mic and what you will experience is your guitar, loud and with the fidelity and dynamics that come from a real microphone.

TRU-MIC TECHNOLOGY

At the heart of the patent pending Anthem is a revolutionary new type of microphone. Utilizing a proprietary noise canceling mic, the Anthem Tru-Mic eliminates any annoying honky or boxy qualities that have been previously associated with internal micing, leaving the pure and natural sound of your guitar the way only a real mic is capable of doing.

Because the mic is positioned within a few millimeters of the guitar top, it has very high gain before feedback. The mic housing mounts easily to the bridge plate and the mic capsule hovers just 3 mm above its surface to take advantage of the PZM, or boundary effect. This Tru-Mic technology picks up the sound of the vibrations of the entire soundboard and makes the mic unusually free from placement issues.

MIC AND PICKUP
A RADICAL NEW TECHNOLOGY

The sound quality and feedback resistance of the Anthem Tru-Mic now allows the mic to be the primary sound source in a mic/pickup system. This is unlike previous systems where only a small amount of the mic could be used to add some air to the dominant pickup signal. This is a radical new relationship between a mic and a pickup, as all of the detail, warmth and personality of your guitar is captured by the Tru-mic. The mic is augmented, for only the very lowest frequencies, by our Element under saddle pickup.

CONTROLS

The feather-weight control unit contains all of the essentials: volume, mix and phase. It nestles securely just inside the soundhole for easy fingertip access. The mix control allows a full blend between the augmented mic and full range pickup. A multi-segment battery check allows you to maximize battery life and peace of mind.

Under the hood is an all discrete preamp/mixer with our pure, clean, LR Baggs signature sound that is trusted by top artists around the world. We have done all of the engineering so you can just plug in and enjoy the real sound of your guitar and the way you play, night after night.

• Mix control for mic and pickup settings

I purchased this to go inside my Martin D-15M Sunburst, really nice sounding guitar, I wanted to preserve the sound through the amp as much as possible, no given that any amplification will change the sound its really hard to preserve the sound of an acoustic. Well the Anthem does that, I hear the true sound of the guitar almost like it was coming from the sound hole itself. The anthem allows you to use the amps reverb and other effects as well, unlike a under saddle pickup allone. Yes the price is high and you could save 100 or so dollars going cheap, but in the end you will be unsatisfied and always looking for that next best pickup, in the end if you spend the extra 100 bucks your going to get the best setup possible. One last thing I let Long ane Mcquade do the install, their profession luthiers are really great and I recommend you get a pro who has done this to do the install, I needed a little bit of the cross brace shaved off and I wouldnt trust anyone but a pro to do that, and in most cases they have tools to ensure that the positioning of the inside mic is in the right place to help the under saddle pickup to sound like the guitars sound hole. I highly recommend this product for all professionals and novices alike as one of the best acoustic systems out there.

Installed this in a custom built Mark Kett guitar with an Adi top & BRW B&S. I opted for the more expensive full version that allows you more control over the piezo/mic mix and get a very natural sound through my AER Compact 60. If you want to hear your "guitar", get the Anthem.
