Long press for bypass, Next footswitch selects the next instrument preset, Series FX loop (separate jacks for send and return), Ground lift switch effectively eliminates ground-loop noise, ¼” input, XLR and ¼" outputs, 9V DC power, iPhone Version: iPhone 6 and later
LR Baggs Session DI
Acoustic Guitar DI with Saturation and Compression EQ. The Session DI enhances your acoustic pickup and imparts the rich sonic character that you’d expect from an experienced audio engineer using some of the world’s finest studio gear. We’ve captured this studio magic and put it into a compact, easy-to-use DI that will transform your live sound. The Session DI’s proprietary saturation is voiced specifically for the acoustic guitar and transports studio analog warmth and inspiring playability to the stage. Unlike standard compression that can squash the entire range of your signal, the Session DI’s Comp EQ features 3 narrowly focused bands of compression that tame common problematic frequencies and uncover the voice of your guitar. The low, mid, and high frequency compressors are essentially “touch-sensitive” EQs that respond in real-time to your dynamics. Variable high-pass filter attenuates extraneous low frequencies. VU meter visually optimizes gain for passive and active pickups. Ground lift switch effectively eliminates ground-loop noise. All discrete signal path with XLR and quarter inch outputs. 48V phantom power, 9V battery or 9V DC powering options. Rugged enclosure constructed of aluminum, steel and ABS plastic. Mute footswitch for ¼" and XLR outs. Includes custom LR Baggs carrying case.

LR Baggs Align Series Active DI
All-Discrete Active DI with Pedalboard-friendly Functionality. Building upon decades of experience creating studio-quality gear for the stage, the Align Active DI is the embodiment of LR Baggs engineering at its highest level and uses the most pristine circuitry we have developed in a DI. The all-discrete design preserves the authenticity of your sound while providing high headroom for a wide range of signals. Equally at home on a pedalboard or standalone, we are excited to offer a DI with such a high degree of fidelity and functionality.
LR Baggs Align Series Chorus
Proprietary Chorus Tailored Specifically for Acoustic Instruments. In the same way a choir enhances the foundation of a melody, the Align Chorus complements your acoustic guitar rather than placing the effect in the limelight. With the purity of LR Baggs’ circuitry and the effect in side chain, the Chorus adds fullness behind your guitar without any signal degradation. We designed the pedal with simple and intuitive controls that help you dial in a pleasing effect quickly and easily. A unique Size control blends two chorus voicings that interact with one another as you turn the knob. It’s essentially like adding more instruments as you increase the size. Additionally, a Tone control shapes only the affected signal, enabling you to dial in the perfect balance for your instrument.
LR Baggs Align Series Delay
The Align Delay brings a classic effect to acoustic musicians by optimizing the signal for high-fidelity instruments. By expanding the range of your sonic profile while underlining your primary acoustic sound, the Delay augments both rhythm and melody for a larger dimensional sound and feel. We’ve combined the most desirable qualities of both analog and digital circuitry to create the best possible sound with the convenient features of a modern platform. The Tap button sets your desired tempo or the Tap Tempo input can be used with an external time control device. The Tone control only effects the repeats, ranging from warm and analog-like to clear, digital-like echo—for a versatile effect that can be tailored to fit any musical context.
LR Baggs Align Series Equalizer
Acoustic Preamplifier with 6-Band EQ and Anti-feedback Notch Filter. Based on the circuit of the esteemed Para Acoustic DI, the Align Equalizer combines LR Baggs' signature, high-graded FET gain stage with powerful tone-shaping EQ that injects richness and balance to any acoustic pickup signal. A 6-band EQ shapes the frequencies we found most useful for improving acoustic guitar pickups with the flexibility needed to cover other acoustic instruments effectively. Multi-instrumentalists can incorporate dedicated EQ pedals for level matching a variety of instruments and tailoring a specific EQ for each one.
LR Baggs 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 that we love so much. The circuit seamlessly integrates the wet and dry signals with the effect in side chain so that it never overwhelms the original signal. We 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.
LR Baggs Align Series Session
Align Session brings the LR Baggs signature studio sound to your live rig. Session circuitry enhances your acoustic pickup and imparts the rich sonic character that you’d expect from an experienced audio engineer using some of the world’s finest studio gear. We’ve captured this studio magic and put it into a compact, easy-to-use acoustic pedal that will transform your live sound. Often used by studio engineers in post-production, saturation adds warmth, dimension, and pleasing harmonics while smoothing the signal for an enhanced mix. The Session’s proprietary saturation is voiced specifically for the acoustic guitar and transports studio analog warmth and inspiring playability to the stage. Unlike standard compression that can squash the entire range of your signal, the Session’s Comp EQ features 3 narrowly focused bands of compression that tame common problematic frequencies and uncover the voice of your guitar. The low, mid, and high frequency compressors are essentially “touch-sensitive” EQs that respond in real-time to your dynamics. The harder you strum, the more they compress and vice versa.
