The K&K Sound Pure 12-String Pre-Phase combines the Pure 12-String three transducer pickup system with the Pre-Phase soundhole-mounted preamp, which has a volume control and an integrated phase switch. This model includes a gold strap button instead of the standard chrome strap button.
The K&K Pure 12-String Pre-Phase is an active three-sensor pickup system for 12-string and high-voiced guitars. Don't be fooled by the sound of some competitors' "thin sounding" passive systems. The Pure Systems are definitely different. They sound full and rich, reproducing the natural acoustic tone of your guitar.
The K&K Pure 12-String's larger pickup sensors produce an extra strong bass response and pronounced midrange. While this bass and midrange response is too strong for many guitars, especially very resonant ones, it sounds great in 12-string guitars and is a good alternative for guitars with heavy spruce tops and maple bridge plates or guitars that have a naturally bright sound.
Note! Because the pickup heads are quite large, please check the bridge plate size of your guitar with the original size diagram of the Pure 12-String sensors, which can be found on the K&K Sound website. If your guitar does not have sufficient space under the bridge, you should use the Pure Mini system instead.
The included K&K Pre-Phase preamp provides truly astonishing sound quality. The signal path is very direct and K&K uses only close tolerance grade A components. This means no loss of harmonics. The addition of the phase switch is one of the most important tools for live sound amplification of any acoustic instrument.
The light weight of the Pre-Phase preamp will not affect the acoustic tone of your instrument, and the battery life is 500+ hours, which equals about 1 year on average use. The soundhole-mounted volume control wheel allows for convenient adjustment during performance. With the Pre-Phase you are able to plug your acoustic guitar into any amp or PA directly. Simply use the EQ on the amp or Mixer channel to adjust your tone.
