- Coaxial Undersaddle Pickup for Steel or Nylon String Guitars
- Works with Standard and Wide Saddles (3/32" to 1/8")
- 18 Volts - Twice the Headroom of Other Pickups
- Play Hard Without Overloading
- Adjustable Bass and Treble
The D-TAR Wave-Length combines a thin coaxial undersaddle transducer with an 18 volt, low-noise, high headroom preamp, to create a system with twice the dynamic range of typical 9 volt systems. The 18v preamp is powered by two AA batteries. With 18 volts, your signal has more headroom, so hard strumming won't distort as easily. The preamp has an input for a second source, like a magnetic pickup or a soundboard transducer (second pickup not included).
Two adjustable trim pots, one low frequency shelving and one high frequency shelving, allow you to fine tune and 'set and forget' the bass and treble frequencies to optimize the Wave-Length for your instrument's size and shape; enabling you transparently amplify the natural timbre of your acoustic guitar with minimal coloration. Includes 1/4" jack (6,35 mm) and detailed installation instructions.
The unitary full length pickup accommodates virtually all 6-string and 12-string spacings and gets a more even response from the guitar's top. Thin coaxial cable design make it easy to install in guitars with either 1/8" or 3/32" saddles, often with no modification to the saddle or saddle slot. High headroom, allows for twice the dynamic range of a 9-volt system. This means you can strum extra hard without piezo "quackiness". Uses two AA batteries, which batteries weigh less and result in lower user cost than 9-volts.
Bass and treble are adjustable via trim pots on the preamp. Dual Source Capability allows the user to combine the Wave-Length with a magnetic pickup or soundboard transducer (not included) for greater complexity of signal.
Note: The D-TAR Wave-Length is now made by Seymour Duncan as the Wavelength Solo. The packaging and appearance have changed, but the features and functionality are the same.
