The K&K Sound Pure Classic Pre-Phase is an active four-sensor pickup system with a soundhole mounted preamp, designed for nylon stringed 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 and reproduce the natural acoustic sound of your guitar. This model includes a gold strap button instead of the standard chrome strap button.
The K&K Pure Classic's pickup sensors produce a very natural, acoustic tone without sounding boomy or hollow. The Pure Classic sounds great in all classical and flamenco guitars and can be played hard without overloading. For flamenco guitars, the sensors will reproduce percussive sounds on the soundboard as well as the string sounds.
The K&K Pure Classic pickup sensors are designed to be installed with superglue gel (not included) for optimum sound transmission, due to the naturally lower resonance of a nylon string guitar. For players who prefer a removable installation, K&K also includes a special extra thin double sided gel tape for peel-and-stick sensor placement. Pickups installed with this tape will have about 30% less output compared to the superglue installation method.
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 included 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 of average use. The soundhole-mounted volume control wheel allows for convenient adjustment during performance. With the Pre-Phase preamp you are able to plug your guitar into any amp or PA directly. Simply use the EQ on the amp or mixer channel to adjust your tone.
