Sold: Used L.R. Baggs Anthem Pickup System $199

Sold. Thanks for looking.

I purchased the new Anthem Tru-Mic Acoustic Microphone/Piezo Pickup system direct from L.R. Baggs in September. The system was installed and then uninstalled about 6 weeks later by the same professional luthier. Great sound, but not what I was looking for. Everything is as new except for the double-stick tape and the clips for the cables. I’d bet Baggs would send you some of that free or cheap. The Anthem system sells new for $299. My price does not include shipping but shipping fee will be reasonable.

  1. Hi John,
    Nice site.
    Does sold mean that it has been sold or is it still available? Also, in either case, I would be very interested to hear more about why it wasn’t what you were looking for.



  2. Hey Luke.

    It’s sold. The title of the post used to read: “For Sale.”

    I wanted to like the Anthem, but I found it to have a very compressed and overly-bright sound. In order to achieve anything close to the tone I wanted I had to use very extreme EQ settings to cut the high frequencies.

    I have recently started using the MiniFlex microphone system and find that it has a much more natural and dynamic sound.

  3. Thanks John

    Thanks for the link to the Miniflex. From what i can hear it does sound much better than the Anthem.
    I appreciate your feedback. Speaking of which, and I hope I’m not bothering you too much with this, but do you think the Miniflex would work well in a “rockier” environment? By that I mean with loud drums and a full band, or would you say it is meant more for solo performance? I’m just trying to get a better idea of it’s resistance to feedback.
    Here is a link to my music if you’re interested:

    Any help would be much appreciated.


  4. The band sounds great! I like the atmospheric vibe. Honestly, I think the MiniFlex may be difficult to use in a loud rock environment. I think you could work out a way to avoid feedback, but it picks up a lot. Recently I was playing and my stomach growled – yes, it came right through the PA!
