OPEN BOX L.R. Baggs Radius Mandolin Pickup
The Radius™ contact pickup features a highly flexible internal film sensor that responds like a microphone diaphragm. The sensor is held in equilibrium and damped by opposing neodymium magnets that let the pickup convey even the most subtle nuances of the mandolin. Installation on the instrument is easy, with finish-friendly mounting putty. The violin-style jack/clamp can also be disassembled for installing the pickup and jack inside the mandolin (strapjack button included). Complete instructions are provided. The Radius is a high impedance transducer: in many venues a preamp is not required, but for best results and for feedback control at high sound levels, the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI is recommended.
