LR Baggs Align Series Equalizer, Reverb, & Active DI

March 10, 2018

The LR Baggs EQ & Reverb and Active DI are so quiet and so tonally transparent. They sound great with the Andy Culpepper #83 with the LR Baggs Dual Source. I just tried it all with the Bose S1 Pro and the EV Evolve 50. I’m keeping them. My review: “I have always liked LR Baggs. This eq sounds so clean and transparent. No coloration or tone suck or hiss. I am using the eq on my nylon string Culpepper Flamenco outfitted with a LR Baggs Dual Source Pickup. I have used quite a few eq pedals and this is one of my favorite. The frequency eq are perfectly selected for the acoustic guitarist. The size of the pedal is great it can fit on a nano pedalboard or other small board. I really wanted to have an EQ pedal that I could use with the battery and be completely free of using electricity. I’m using this pedal in conjunction with the LR Baggs Align Reverb and then run it it directly to the Bose S1 Pro in doing so do not need any electricity from an outlet. Finally even the shape of the pedal and look (wood grain) is a great aesthetic.” Thanks LR Baggs. *Update*:

Hey I just put lr bags Through the EV Evolve 50 system and oh my gosh does it sound good you can feel the bass there’s no feedback it’s truly amazing the reverb is fantastic.

LR Baggs Align Series Reverb

Reverb: LR Baggs Align Series Reverb. What a fantastic and transparent reverb. It does not add color or change the acoustic tone of your instrument. The Reverb trail is clear and sounds very natural there is no hiss generated and no graininess in the Reverb trail. It’s truly an acoustic reverb tool for the acoustic guitar player or acoustic musician. One of the best reverbs. Very natural. It’s also has a musical and lush tone easy sonically. And finally it looks great the wood aesthetic is very appealing and fits for acoustic instruments. Well done Loyd

What LR Baggs says about the Align Series Reverb “Proprietary Reverb Tailored Specifically for Acoustic Instruments
The Align Reverb was built from the ground up to complement the natural body dynamics and warmth of acoustic instruments. The circuit seamlessly integrates the wet and dry signals with the effect in side chain so that it never overwhelms the original signal. The designers shaped the reverb with analog EQ to reflect the natural voice inherent in acoustic instruments. Additionally, the tone control adds versatility by sweeping from warm and muted to open and present. The result is an organic reverb that maintains the audiophile purity of the original signal with the controls set in any position.


• Reverb control blends reverb signal with unaffected signal

• Decay adjusts the length of the reverb tail

• Tone sweeps a wide range of warmth, clarity, and everywhere in between”
