"After 15 years of using exactly the same pedal board, I am finally ripping it up and starting again. Same idea, but using the @roland_us RC30 looper plus some of their great #fx pedals with beautiful big fat pads that I can trigger without even looking down! It's just the beginning, but exciting (and scary!!) to learn new gear."more
According to L. R. Baggs' artists section June uses this pre amp. About she said: "Playing acoustic instruments can be challenging in live settings because of feedback issues and the desire to have the warmth of the instrument translate through various PA systems. I love my L.R. Baggs DI's because they help me to keep the rich, warm sound of my instruments and eliminate the feedback issues."more

Schlappich talked about her gear with NPR and her setup is as follows: > With Kiss Kiss, I use an acoustic violin which I set up with an LR Baggs pickup. I send my signal through an LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI, and the pedals I use include a Line 6 Delay Modeler and Loop Sampler, a Holy Grail Reverb, a Boss Mega Distortion, an ARTcessories Personal Monitor, and a Peterson Strobo Stomp Tuner. I prefer to go direct to the PA for Kiss Kiss, but for other gigs I own a Fender Hot Rod Deville Combo Amp, and I have a 5-string electric Bridge violin. My professional acoustic instrument is an 1888 German violin made by Oswald Mockel. It's my baby, and is probably more valuable than my own life!more
I use this incredible box for my piezo, makes the sound very powerful, also can equalize cause it has great mid range, it's very important tool in my live set.
This is a great piece, providing adequate eq and notch feedback control in a compact box. Only drawbacks are the tiny knobs and no input for external power. I have put larger set-screw knobs directly over the stock knobs and they work OK and I may see if I can hook a 9volt adapter from my pedal driver so I can avoid batteries entirely.
I've been using this box for acoustic guitar for probably 15 years. It does what it does very well indeed. My favourite feature is the 48v phantom power. Wish my Venue DI had that!
This is probably all I need for my acoustic sets; it gives me options and makes both my guitars (Martin LM-1 and Guild D-50SB) sound that much sweeter through the usual dry house sound. I bought mine used for a killer price and I'm glad I have it.
