Pick-up the World, PUTW #54 Acoustic Guitar Dual Element SBT Pickup
This Pick-up the World pickup system is PUTW’s flagship soundboard pickup for steel string guitars.
Comprised of a pair of Model #27 steel string pickups, the installation is greatly simplified, and the tone is very natural with a slight emphasis in the bass & treble registers. The two pickup elements are placed on either end of the bridgeplate so that one is right next to the bass X brace and the other is right next to the treble X brace. There is no guess work involved in the positioning and the result is very feedback resistant due to the stiffness of the mounting locations.
The tone is improved across the board from the single element pickups and this is especially noticeable on lighter or more boutique instruments that can tend to have an exaggerated midrange emphasis with other soundboard pickups. The tones are clear and solid with more pronounced detail than with the single model #27s and midrange overloads are eliminated.
This pickup is passive and a preamp should be used.
