L.R. Baggs pickups and electronics are used in high-end instruments all over the world. Some of our most expensive instruments come with L.R. Baggs pickups installed, and when we get a chance to recommend the "best" acoustic instrument preamp that we carry, we always go for the Para Acoustic D.I. While offering traditional piezo and magnetic pickups, L.R. Baggs continually reinvents the acoustic pickup genre by offering ribbon transducers, bridge plate transducers, hex pickups, and cleverly-designed control systems. If you're looking for killer tone without compromise, L.R. Baggs has a product that's right for you!

"Two really nice surprises on this L.R. Baggs Venue D.I.: First, the tuner is deadly accurate. I was using a Collings OM with a Fishman Natural and the tuner is so easy to see, and spot on. Secondly, the Boost switch sounds fantastic. In fact, I left the boost on and used my vol pedal to pull is back a bit, but still have room to get over the top if necessary. All-in-all this is a really nice unit and considering the tuner and boost, I think it's a great deal. It's also built like a tank. I just ordered my own. - John F.
Make the very most of your true sound at any venue. This is so much more than a DI box and will easily become an essential element for any live acoustic player. You've got a 5-band adjustable EQ, a boost footswitch, a chromatic tuner, with mute, plus a notch filter and ground loop eliminator to cut out feedback and noise. There's even an auxiliary send/return effects loop. Did we mention how well built this is? Check out Lloyd Baggs giving this a real roadworthy test - running it over with a truck! This L.R. Baggs Venue DI really is innovative, designed to withstand real road use, and lets your true sound come through beautifully and easily.
This LR Baggs M80 Soundhole Pickup is a real innovation. The Baggs M1 is remarkable in its own right, but this M80 gives you both active and passive functions in one pickup, the same super easy installation of the M1, and it delivers even more true natural tone through a floating secondary coil that is both a humbucking coil and a 3D sensor picking up the full spectrum of tonal vibrations of your guitar. No feedback here, no hum, plus it's super easy to switch between passive and active. You've also got a battery life light and volume control right at your fingertips. This LR Baggs M80 Soundhole Pickup delivers your true tone, beautifully.
When you want your true acoustic tone to come through, this L.R. Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup really makes it easy. It has built-in class A electronics so there's no need for external preamps, plus it's compatible with other equipment. You've also got a volume control right at hand for adjustments on the fly.
The beauty of this M1 is it's an acoustic humbucker engineered specifically to let your own tone shine through with no feedback and no hum, no dead spots - just your perfect tone. It's also incredibly easy to install too. You get a natural blend of body and string signal, no feedback and no hum. The battery will also knock your socks off with over 1,000 hours of playing time. Truly natural tone, volume control, and ease of installation make this L.R. Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup a perfect pickup choice.
This L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I is one of my top 10 picks of all time. It makes any acoustic instrument equipped with an add on pickup sound so much better. It's extremely natural sounding, has plenty of control options, is small and best of all, inexpensive. I've owned some very pricey acoustic pre-amps in my days, but I would not trade them for this little box. No wonder the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I is a best seller year after year. - John F.
