Acoustic Guitar: Seven Complete Acoustic Guitar Rigs

Cool comparison and breakdown of various acoustic guitar setups. I’ve been in a constant state of “tinker” ever since I started playing the guitar and have found a setup that I love and have stuck with for several years now! I personally use a setup that resembles the example on page 3. Mine includes a Ltd Edition Takamine with palathetic pickup going into an LR Baggs ParaAcoustic DI, Korg Pitch Black tuner (both soon to be replaced by the all in one LR Baggs Venue) & HBE analog delay pedal all going straight into the house system or PA. Which setup do you use?


Just made a demo of the brand new LR Baggs Stadium Bass DI! Check it out and let me know what you think!


Here’s another video of MPJ performing for LR Baggs. Check out this solo acoustic version of “Hole In My Heart”.

Review: LR Baggs Venue DI Direct Box

The LR Baggs Venue DI Acoustic Direct Box is a professional quality acoustic guitar preamp with several well thought out features for the performing guitarist. First, it is a high-quality transformer-coupled DI to prevent extraneous noise or hum on stage, but it also has an EQ specifically engineered for acoustic guitars along with a variable boost control to quickly change dynamics on stage and a chromatic digital tuner. Combining features like this into one professional unit means you have to carry less, there is less to go wrong. If you count on a solid guitar sound for your music this unit can put all the control you need right at your finger tips.

LR Baggs and American Songwriter Present: Andrew Combs
