The LR Baggs Co. has developed a new onboard mixing system for acoustic guitars. The iMix pairs the IBeam and new undersaddle pickup, the Element, with a miniature all discrete class A FET preamp stereo mixer.
With its adjustable mid contour controls for both the iBeam and Element, and low cut for the iBeam, a dialed-in sound is available for just about any guitar.
The soundhole-mounted dual controller, the Remote Control II, is a big advantage for stage use. It attaches non-destructively to the underside of the soundhole, and puts master volume and mix controls at your fingertip. You can have a dual source sound without thr need for a bunch of outboard gear or to cut your prized guitar for an onboard preamp.
List Price: $329. Available now.
