There's no argument that a mic is the best way to capture the sound of an acoustic guitar, but until now, using a mic for most live performances has been an elusive dream. Lyric, the next step in Tru. Mic technology, is the long overdue realization of this dream. Without a pickup, Lyric's microphone accurately transports your guitar's actual voice to a live audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience. Our featherweight microphone, each high graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside of the bridge plate with simple peel & stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument. The mic leverages the "pressure zone" principle by positioning the capsule just 3mm from the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. And the mic's proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts to use an internal mic, Lyric employs noise cancelling technology that rejects "boxy" reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patent pending minor miracle enables the mic to act as if it were outside of the guitar delivering a clear and open performance. In a studio, you would have to use an entire rack of gear to achieve what we have built into Lyric's tiny circuit board. Our lead engineer, Tommy Linn, created several patent pending "black box" circuit innovations that unlock the potential of the microphone. The first tightens the lower frequencies for a punchier attack with natural dynamics. The second maintains the mic's sweetness no matter how hard you play. The third innovation, not patent pending but useful, is an adjustable "presence" control that dials high frequency response perfectly for your guitar. Wrap all of this in all discrete, high fidelity mic pre and you have a world class microphone system as an integral part of your guitar anywhere you plug in.

I really wanted this to work, since it is extremely easy to install and has a lot of volume from the pre-amp.
I don't know what to say about all the good reviews here and on YouTube, but evidently there are a lot of people used to the "quacky" sound of the undersaddle pickups and have never heard their guitar through a microphone. There is simply nothing natural about the sound from the Lyric. All the noise cancelling technology to remove the boxiness in the sound wipes out the nice wood sound and leaves you with a little tiny bit of acoustic and a lot of electric sound. It may be a sound that a lot of people like, but it is NOT natural.
this is amazing. its very feedback resistant!
and the sound is so natural. If you are looking for a pickup
that its natural this is the best. Also love the fact that doesn't need to modify the guitar!
It's fantastic. Is it a Trance Audio Amulet? No. But was it $550? Nnnnnnope.
I'm happy. Yes, you can get it to feedback. Yes it lacks the overblown low end of other pickup designs. Yes there is a little handling noise.
And yes, it sounds better than the Taylor ES1.
The pickup works as advertised. I am still trying to get the sound I want. But no more so than with any other pickup I have. I have been reading posts on the Baggs forum and elsewhere for helpful thoughts on EQ. They would have been good to read prior to buying. So I would recommend that you check them out. A Google search on Baggs Lyric EQ should do it.
Also, I am told that Baggs has a great support team, though I have not contacted them either. But will as I dig into fine tuning more.
