Tri-Ax Pickup

The most advanced and intelligent design in soundhole mounted pickups.

The Tri-Ax active soundhole pickup, with its built in class A discrete preamp, features outstanding body sensitivity with great warmth and presence. Its dual-coil design employs L.R. Baggs exclusive patented Tri-Axial Dynamic Technology, which senses both the string and body vibrations for a clear, rich and complex tone. The design is highly resistant to feedback, noise and hum. A volume control is conveniently located for fingertip control.

The Tri-Ax will fit all guitars with a soundhole larger than 3.5” that is centered beneath the strings.

For players who use the Takamine CoolTube® preamp, the Tri-Ax is system-matched to work flawlessly as the second source (aux) pickup.

System Matched Performance

  • Tri-Ax is “System Matched” to augment the Cool Tube® preamp. The pickup comes with the cable to connect to the aux input.
  • In passive mode the Tri-Ax uses the Cool Tube® preamp Aux control to blend effectively with the Palathetic™ pickup for a new level of tonal bliss.
  • The Tri-Ax is silent and adds a brilliance to the midrange and fattens up the sound of the treble strings, especially beyond the seventh fret.

Stand Alone Pickup

  • The Tri-Ax comes with a cable-to-end-pin jack connection for use when installing in an acoustic guitar.
  • In active mode the Tri-Ax delivers a full, robust signal that is capable of being plugged directly into an amp or mixing console.
  • The triaxial design outperforms the other magnetic-only pickups on the market.
