LR Baggs Lyric Pickup

I'm thinking about which pickup system to put in my guitar. Guitar is a Sigma OMM-ST. I tend to the LR Baggs lyric. Does anyone have any experience? Or are there better?

Can I play it in front of a P.A. directed at me without feedback/ howl? I also do percussion with the guitar, can it handle it?

The Lyrics is a pretty good system However any mic-based system will howl under the wrong conditions - how loud do you usually play?

I have an LR Baggs Anthem LS in my J-200. It uses the same bridgeplate mic as the Lyric in combination with a low frequency bridge pickup and an on-board crossover, so the mic doesn't have to handle the lowest frequencies, thereby eliminating most of the LF feedback problem. Since the mic handles most of the sound there is no "quack" or other problems usually associated with bridge (undersaddle) pickups.

The Anthem LS costs about $100 more than the Lyric. Both of them require professional installation, which should be about $75-$100.

Hi JP,

Thanks for your answer - very helpful. Didn't see that there were any other L.R.Baggs systems. The anthem costs only 12 stones more here at my seller and looks more valueable.

I practice over a PA on 100 db or so, but I can also point it away from me, so it shouldn't be so wild with the feedback, otherwise I just send the thing back again, but then you have to remove it again, which is a lot of work.

I also thought you could put the lyric in yourself. Didn't look very difficult and s.o. wrote it in the product reviews.
