The Pup Emu is a Guitar Pickup Emulator for effects pedal boards that restores the musical and lively response of a guitar plugged directly into an amp.

A pedal board containing a series of analog or digital effects pedals with solid-state transistors reduces touch-sensitivity.

We are losing the natural feel and response of the vibrating string created by the pickups.

When connecting the Pup Emu in between or after a chain of effects pedals and before the amplifier input, it restores the natural musical response that is obscured and lends the signal the tonal character and feel of a variety of single-coil and humbucker pickups.

 How the Pup Emu works

A guitar pickup is a coil wound around magnetic poles that transforms the vibrations of the strings into voltage which gets amplified by the guitar amp.

Coil properties include Inductance and Impedance and variations of these create the unique sound quality and response of different pickup types.

The Pup Emu consists of a high-quality coil with a selector switch that emulates the differences in Inductance and Impedance, like we find in pickups ranging from lighter wound single-coils to heavier wound humbuckers.

It can be connected in front or in between effects pedals or as the last link in a chain of pedals.

Because of the increase in impedance, the Pup Emu influences the response of the effects unit it is connected to.

Some effects will show more of this influence than others, depending on the input impedance variations of different effects units.

In the OFF position the unit is in True Bypass.

With (frequency balanced) Volume and (no-load pot) Tone controls.

Dimensions: 4-3/8'' x 2-3/8''

Also available in another Reverb Listing as Pup Emu Mini version without Volume and Tone knobs ... 3-5/8'' x 1-1/2''
