The L.R. Baggs StagePro Element includes the patented LR Baggs Element undersaddle pickup in an onboard system, with a side-mounted class A preamp/EQ that features volume, treble, midrange, bass, notch filter and phase inversion controls with a built-in tuner. The Element pickup boasts impressive body sensitivity and articulation, and has the most dynamic range of any undersaddle pickup. The preamp's all-discrete circuitry is based on the award-winning L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I., and is specially voiced for the Element.
The StagePro preamp features a built in chromatic tuner, with Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls. A notch filter and phase inversion help control feedback. The preamp operates on a single 9 volt battery that is easily accessible through the top-mounted click-lock battery compartment. A pure Class A discrete FET input preamp and eq provide a rich, warm analog sound.
The Element undersaddle pickup provides impressive presence and dynamic range, more than any other undersaddle pickup on the market. The extra long sensor will fit most common string spacings and saddle widths, including standard 3/32" and 1/8" saddles. The pickup element is not string position dependent, and will provide even string-to-string balance on any guitar.
