The underlying acoustic tone is a mite dry and the highs a tad splashy in texture, but it’s a willing performer with easy dynamics and up-to-par dread-like punch. Though relatively low in gain, the LR-T-4T preamp does an accomplished powered job, respectively warming and cleaning up the unplugged traits for a natural, quality palette of sounds.
The dual facility for mid-range tailoring is especially beneficial - the main cut/boost slider centred at 500Hz, while ‘scoop’ fine-tweaks up to -6dB at 1kHz. The system also scores well for its under-saddle output balance, and the neat way that the tuner’s LCD screen changes colour when a string is adjusted to pitch.
Pros: The very well-voiced preamp system.
Cons: Slightly sharp fret ends.
Verdict: One of best pickup systems on test is a definite enticement.
