LR Baggs Releases High-Fidelity Acoustic Bridge Plate Pickup System

LR Baggs Releases High-Fidelity Acoustic Bridge Plate Pickup System

With a simplified peel-and-stick installation, the lightweight pickups preserve the integrity of your instrument’s bridge plate without negatively altering your acoustic tone.


This week at NAMM (Hall D, Booth 5406) L.R. Baggs is unveiling HiFi, a non-invasive pickup design that pairs dual bridge plate sensors with high-fidelity electronics, providing exceptional balance, definition, dynamics, and good feedback resistance. With a simplified peel-and-stick installation, the lightweight pickups preserve the integrity of your instrument’s bridge plate without negatively altering your acoustic tone. The construction, materials, size, and shape of the pickups contribute to a balance between string and body energy that represents the inherent sound of your instrument. Lastly, HiFi’s built-in, studio-quality preamp is voiced to complement the pickups for an optimal plug-and-play experience.

​One of the HiFi’s most notable features is the all-discrete, high-fidelity endpin preamp, which ensures excellent audio quality. In addition, the HiFi is equipped with prewired bridge plate transducers and soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls. The installation process for the HiFi is simplified thanks to the peel-and-stick method and installation jig to help with optimal placement. The HiFi runs on a single 9V battery, which boasts an impressive battery life of over 700 hours.

We invite you to visit the LR Baggs booth in Hall D (5406) at NAMM for an in-person demo of HiFi.
