LR Baggs Venue
LR Baggs Venue ($299 Street Price)
LR Baggs long awaited follow up to the ParaAcoustic DI (a longtime staple for fiddle players) adds the pedal functionality to make it a true competitor in this class. We gave the Baggs high marks for build quality, the ability to run of 9v or battery power, the built in tuner, and an EQ section which was well marked and very musical with both the cello and violin.
-Extremely musical, well marked EQ
-1 input only
-No phantom power
-Players with simple needs onstage.
-Single pickup and not too many effects pedals (as the loop cannot be disengaged and will amplify noisy effects).
