Newly redesigned, the Bartolini 3AV magnetic soundhole pickup now sports a new, easier to install housing and a slimmer profile.
Designed for steel string acoustic guitars, the 3AV magnetic pickup mounts in the soundhole. It has a bright, clear hum-canceller (stacked coil) with B-string compensation*. Includes a 10 foot attached cable with strain relief. Fit most soundholes 3-7/8 inches diameter and larger.
* The B-string is typically thicker than the high E-string and the solid cores of the wound strings. For that reason, the pickup compensates the B-string to ensure even output of all 6 strings.
Bartolini pickups are precision magnetic transducers designed and manufactured to bring out the fullest response from electric guitars and basses. Each pickup is hand assembled from selected materials and carefully tested for output level, square wave response, hum level and microphonics. All Bartolini pickups carry a one year warranty for defects in workmanship or materials.
