B-Band 22R Under-saddle Transducer (UST)
The B-Band UST (Under-Saddle Transducer)* still stands as the first transducer that alone, sounds better than many pickup / microphone combinations. An instrument equipped with a B-Band UST has enhanced countless productions, in the studio and in live performance, by being able to produce a great acoustic tone quickly.
Designated as the "5th Gen UST", the new UST has been stiffened for better string balance qualities, higher output, greater durability and even lower background noise. Evolution of the revolutionary B-Band UST has been prompted by the many knowledgeable and fantastic artists that B-Band works with. This significantly updated UST is a testament to that spirit.
Even though these changes have been made, the UST remains very thin - only 0.4 mm / .015" - and usually does not require a new string saddle or adjustment to saddle cavity. Since the UST is all one piece - i.e: not segmented - positioning for string spacing is a thing of the past. The UST is a flexible, rugged and constant structure all the way to the preamp. Connection to the preamp is an easy "plug in" without soldering.
B-Band A3T Onboard Preamp
The A3T retains the simple and small features that are big on sound and intuitiveness. The compact preamp has a 4-band rotary EQ, low battery LED and a wide range chromatic tuner. The EQ provide quick and accurate changes. The chromatic tuner is fast and has a range that will be welcomed buy customers that want to tune a full step down from standard -- great for open tunings and 12- string guitars too! The tuner's read-out shows all notes, including sharps, great for standard and open tunings. The tuner has a single window showing the pitch and four LEDs showing the half step, sharp, flat and in-tune. 9-volt battery powered HZZLess circuit.
The A3T preamp features a fully chromatic tuner with wide range and fast response. It has a single input for either the UST or AST pickup and provides the HZZLess low noise / high output circuitry. Includes a 4-band EQ with LED low battery and "blink" switch-on status lights. Also includes a Box-Tight battery holder and pre-wired high quality endpin output jack.
