Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element Active System™ was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousands of an inch thick picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses “quack” caused by compression and unlocks the Element’s unrivaled dynamic range. The pickup’s minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
Delivering the same dynamically rich, high fidelity sound as the steel string version, the Element Active System Classical is specifically voiced to articulate the frequency response of nylon stringed instruments.
