Beyond Pickups. Beyond Compare.
There's no argument that a microphone is the best way to capture the sound of an acoustic guitar,
but until now, using a microphone for most live performances has been an elusive dream.
Lyric, the next step in TRU•MIC technology, is the long overdue realization of this dream.
Without a pickup, Lyric’s microphone accurately transports your guitar's actual voice to a live
audience for the most realistic and inspiring sound you will ever experience.
Our featherweight microphone, each high-graded for ideal response, mounts to the underside
of the bridge plate with simple peel-and-stick adhesive to preserve the integrity of your instrument.
The microphone leverages the “pressure-zone” principle by positioning the capsule just 3mm from
the surface of the top to hear the entire soundboard for even balance and tone. And the
microphone’s proximity to the top allows high gain before feedback. Unlike other attempts
to use an internal microphone, Lyric employs noise canceling technology that rejects “boxy”
reflections inside of the acoustic chamber. This patented minor miracle enables the mic to act
as if it were outside of the guitar delivering a clear and open performance.
In a studio, you would have to use an entire rack of gear to achieve what we have built into Lyric’s
tiny circuit board. Our lead engineer, Tommy Linn, created several “black box” circuit innovations
that unlock the potential of the microphone. The first tightens the lower frequencies for a punchier
attack with natural dynamics. The second maintains the microphone’s sweetness no matter how
hard you play. The third innovation is an adjustable “presence” control that dials high frequency
response perfectly for your guitar. Wrap all of this in all discrete, high-fidelity mic pre and you
have a world class microphone system as an integral part of your guitar anywhere you plug in.
