LR Baggs Element Active Nylon Acoustic Guitar Pickup System

Written by

Sam Beattie

LR Baggs have made a name for themselves as experts on the subject of acoustic amplification technology. Part of the reason for this reputation is their award-winning Element pickup system. Almost universally lauded for its ability to produce extremely natural, dynamic tones with relatively simple hardware, the Element is the pickup of choice for some of the biggest acoustic manufactures in the industry.

Piezo Technology 

On paper, the Element is a simple piezo-style under-saddle acoustic pickup. LR Baggs have tweaked the formula, however, to ensure that it produces more reliable and accurate tones than anything else available on the market, especially when it comes to nylon and classic guitars.

The secret lies in how the Element system picks up sound; rather than relying on the attack of the guitar strings, it responds to vibrations of the guitar top (soundboard) itself. Tonewood plays a huge part in how an acoustic guitar sounds, in terms of tonal character and projection. This means that the Element is able to produce amplified tones that are faithful to the intended sound of your instrument! 

Subtle Design

Employing a simple, understated design has two benefits. First of all, it means minimal interruption to the sound of the guitar. Larger systems can affect the resonance of an instrument, but the Element aims to avoid this entirely by having a small footprint and ergonomic form. Secondly, the Element is barely visible concealed at the top of the soundhole. This means that you retain the simple, organic aesthetic of your acoustic guitar!
