The K&K Sound PowerMix Pure Classic XT System is a dual-source pickup combination with an external preamp/mixer for nylon string guitar. It consists of the award-winning K&K Sound Pure Classic pickup with three sensors; the time-tested FanTaStick Classic pickup, an undersaddle pickup that delivers unbeatable volume, balance, and clarity; and the PowerMix Pure XT Preamp, an external 2-channel belt-clip preamp with amazing mixing capability.
If you are looking for the sweet, warm tone of the Pure Classic pickup system plus really high stage volume before feedback, look no further. Dieter, K&K's head pickup designer, boss and former pro musician says: "If I would still perform live, this would be the system of my choice."
The PowerMix XT Preamp is a 2-channel, belt clip mixer that allows you to blend the two pickups of the PowerMix System. It features extremely low noise operation and can process high input peaks without distortion and offers an incredible dynamic range. The components are meticulously phase aligned.
Aside from its strong bass, midrange, and treble filters (for each channel), the PowerMix XT preamp offers internal gain adjustments which set the preamplification factor from 1 to 10 (per channel). This allows you to boost the input signal up to a 10-fold amount. It features two volume controls knobs, one 1/4" stereo input, and two 1/4" outputs (one mixed output, or one output for each pickup) on the outside of the box. Inside the box, there are adjustable controls for gain, bass, midrange and treble for each channel. The tone controls offer an incredible +/- 20 dB. This is a wider range than some big boards on the market today!
To keep the preamp as small as possible these controls are trim pots (small potentiometers for adjustment with a precision screw driver which is supplied). Once you've installed the two pickups, you can remove the snap-on preamp cover to adjust the trim pots to your personal taste and needs. During performance, the two volume knobs on the outside allow for fast balancing of the pickups on the fly.
Package includes one Pure Classic four-sensor pickup system; one FanTaStick Classic undersaddle pickup; one PowerMix XT Preamp/Mixer; stereo cable to connect from the guitar to the PowerMix XT Preamp; endpin jack, wiring, installation parts and instructions.
