Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the L.R. Baggs Element Active System with Volume and Tone Control was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a thin, flexible film sensor picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. With unrivaled dynamic range, the Element’s minimalist construction creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.

In addition to its treble tone control, the EAS-VTC features a revolutionary low frequency compression circuit which actively controls low end dynamics, creating an incredibly realistic and reliable amplified tone.

The L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup system is made in California, USA.
