The BR-2.1P Pickup system

The BR-2.1P brings percussive fingerstyle to the next level. Baton Rouge Guitars developed a 2way pickup system which enables you to mix the natural acoustic sound of a bridge pickup with the whole range of percussive sounds that an acoustic guitar body gives you. The active magnetic tap pickup is installed inside the guitar body on the neck block. From this position, it enables you to use the whole guitar for percussive fingerstyle. The tap pickup is very resistant to feedback and has high dynamic ranges. If you want to learn more about, how the BR-2.1P works, watch the video below.

The BR1 Pickup system

With the BR-1 we offer a natural sounding Undersaddle Piezo Pickup in combination with a simple active preamp that is extremely reliable. The simple operation offers the possibility to influence the sound of the Baton Rouge guitar in terms of volume, treble and bass. A battery light is installed to notify you if the battery needs to be changed. In addition, the built-in tuner allows for the tuning of the guitar.

The simple and user-friendly features of the BR-1 have proven themselves in their simplicity and are therefore currently used for all pickup models of the Noir series and the "20s reloaded" series.

BR-U1: Our Pickup system for the Ukulele

The BR-U1 is our preferred pickup system for the ukulele. As a passive system, it does not require a battery, but can still be characterized by its voluminous sound. The BR-U1 consists simply of a very balanced sounding piezo and volume wheel in the sound hole. It is easy to use, extremely reliable and delivers a natural, solid sound.
