    The LR-T preamps are actually all made by Crafter, and used on their guitars as well as some Breedlove models. The LR-T's use the LR Baggs Element pickup, but all of the electronics are designed and manufactured by Crafter.

    So I'm sorry to say that since we didn't design that preamp, we have no way of offering accurate advise on the use of it. You should get your best chance for help from Crafter directly.

    My pickups are HEADWAY HE4/G.FEQ fitted to two guitars, and a Nylon Classical with its own brand active pickup so I guess with them all being active then I should experiment with the position and see what happens?

    I always prefer to experiment, but that's just me. If I didn't have time, and had to play a gig, then I would probably just run the effects in front of the DI. Then I would mess with the order when I had more time.

    Hey washy21,
    You can definitely run the DI later in your signal chain, but depending on your pickup, you may lose some signal quality that way. If your guitar has an active pickup, then you can put the Venue almost anywhere in the chain without much of a problem. If you have a passive pickup, then it would definitely be advisable to have the Venue first, or run your effects in the effects loop.

    The Venue's effects loop was designed so that you can plug into the preamp of the Venue through the 1/4" input, and then run the stronger pre-amped signal into the effects pedals through the loop. This also gives you the ability to use the 1/4" and XLR outputs at the same time.

    What kind of pickup are you using on your guitar?

  • Help using LR Baggs Venue DI with other effects - set up?

    Hi All,

    I'm a newbie when it comes to this - hence the question.

    I have the LR Baggs Venue and want to use it with several other effects: TC electronics looper, Reverb and Delay. At the moment I have it at the start of the chain and have the looper last — it sounds great. The problem is that where they are now is hard for me to operate with how I sit and play (in a classical manner with footstool). I don't use the built in effects loop and I simply have it set up so that I have my guitar plugged into the input and the output to the amp.

    My question is this: Will it harm the sound if I move the LR Baggs to second to last in the chain so that I can operate the boost switch and the looper switch easily for my playing position?

    Secondly, should I be using the effects send and return jacks to achieve this?

    Any help would be appreciated.
Working...
