Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboards actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousands of an inch thick picks up the guitars most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses quack caused by compression and unlocks the Elements unrivaled dynamic range.
The patented one-size-fits-all Element reproduces impressive body sensitivity and articulation. It also has the greatest dynamic range of any undersaddle pickup available. The Element Active System features an all-discrete Class A endpin preamp and a soundhole-mounted volume control for easy access. Also included is our battery bag for secure battery retention.
