Common undersaddle pickups depend on string attack to directly compress  the sensors for their sound. This direct pressure is a root cause of the  infamous “quack”. In contrast, our patented Element derives output from  the movement of the soundboard and rejects string attack to minimize  quack. Its flexible film sensor, thin as a human hair, mirrors the  soundboard’s movement as you play to capture the guitar’s actual voice  and its most delicate nuances. In addition, the pickup’s minimalist  construction removes most of its influence on the acoustic properties,  creates an intimate coupling between the sensor and guitar for the  highest fidelity possible, and makes the Element amazingly reliable.  Every pickup is made here at our California factory and is pre-tested in  a guitar for output and balance.

Product description

Think you know what undersaddle transducers are all about? Think  again. The Element delivers performance previously unattainable from an  undersaddle pickup. The streamlined and efficient design removes every  unnecessary internal component to improve the coupling between the  transducer and the guitar. This substantially improves the sensitivity  of the transducer for a robust, lively and open sound with great  dynamics and a delicate high end.The Element Active System pairs the  Element undersaddle transducer with a pre-contoured all-discrete class A  endpin preamp and includes a small, removable soundhole-mounted volume  control for added convenience and versatility. The entire system is  designed to install easily and features plug-and-play performance. Also  included is the "Battery Bagg" for secure battery storage.
