kala-lacewoodMaking your ukulele louder involves amplifying your ukulele. Either standing in front of a microphone, adding a sick-on mic to the sound board or any number of options for high-end built-in preamp & pickup system – there are a lot of choices.

The recording ukulele page has a lot of great information on microphones and recording the ukulele.

We started this in a loft in downtown Los Angeles, California, with a hope and a dream, and no business sense whatsoever. The first L.R. Baggs product was our LB6 Series Pickup. We would like to thank Leo Kottke for his early support. Stores would call us and say, “Leo Kottke said he was using your pickup.” We could literally track his touring route as the stores would order in his wake. Early endorsers were Steven Sheehan of the Judds, James Taylor and Kathy Mattea. These endorsers gave us the encouragement and support that sustained us when we had more enthusiasm than business sense. They spread the word and gradually our business grew.
