The K&K Sound UltraPure 12-String System is an active pickup system with a soundhole mounted preamp/eq for steel string acoustic guitars. It consists of K&K's award-winning Pure 12-String Pickup, the UltraPure soundhole-mounted preamp/eq, a prewired endpin jack, and a hook-and-loop mounted 9-volt battery holder. This model includes a gold strap button instead of the standard chrome strap button.
The newly designed UltraPure Preamp features +/-20 db bass/low, K&K's proprietary wide band midrange, and treble/high controls, plus internal gain trimmer. The addition of a phase switch is one of the most important tools for live sound amplification. Also includes a volume control and low battery indicator. All features are easily accessed at the soundhole.
The K&K UltraPure Preamp is designed to be mounted at the edge of a standard soundhole. A 2.5mm male connector is provided to allow solderless connection of the included Pure pickup to the preamp. Includes battery holder and prewired 1/4" endpin jack, along with installation hardware and instructions. Fits round soundholes from about 3.75" to 4.25".
The K&K Pure 12-String's larger pickup sensors produce a stronger 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.
