The Snake is Headway's high-performance active pickup offering an uncannily natural sound and quality features at a budget price. Headway has managed to cut the cost of The Snake by virtue of its revolutionary design. This system has a tiny but robust micro preamp which appeals to musicians requiring acoustic pickups to have an absolute minimum possible impact on instruments, as The Snake is easier to fit where internal body access is difficult.
Like the Headway HE4 High-End pickups, 'The Snake' series have a class 'A' section pre-amp, pro-audio IC chip and instrument-specific fixed EQ. The SNAKE3 AG is tailored for Acoustic Steel String Guitar, Tenor Guitar, Bouzouki, Mandocello, Octave Mandola and Octave Mandolin. The preamp is protected againsts moisture, vibration, hum and RF signals, and offers reduced body noise. Each pickup is individually tested.
The Snake provides a full balanced sound and natural tone, due to its class A operation. The coaxial pickup element detects vibrations from all directions for a fuller, more natural acoustic sound, and has excellent feedback rejection. This pickup is not string position dependent, and works with all string spacings, including 12-string and folk guitars.
