      EMG Acoustic Saddle Pickup System - Narrow (580355)
Availability:  


Amplify the natural tones of your guitar without added overtones or coloration.

The EMG-AS93U is among the most natural-sounding saddle transducer systems in the world and EMG was the first to produce a piezo film pickup, receiving two patents for its designs. This is a complete system that includes a saddle pickup (AT93), APA-2 preamp, and the EMG Endpin Jack, amplifying the natural tone of your guitar without added overtones or coloration. Highs have a natural brilliance and the low-end is full and rich.

The AT93 pickup is included, using piezo film in a layered format (Bimorph) that has many advantages over other film designs as well as piezo crystals. The layering allows a lower output impedance as well as double the output of other designs. Unlike the crystals, the film has no resonance in the audible region so it doesn't have that annoying harshness inherent in the crystal pickups. Secondly, because the film runs the length of the pickup, any number of strings or any string spacing can be used.

Before purchasing, you should measure the width of the saddle of your guitar to be sure you get the right pickup. The AS93U System is for 3/32" saddle-width.

Included with each system is EMG's EMG-APA-2 preamp. This is a miniature preamp/battery holder unit that is easily mounted to the neck block using a 3M dual-lok fastener. It incorporates an FET input for low noise and a very high-input impedance (20 megohms) so you can finally get every ounce of tone your guitar is capable of producing. The low-output impedance (2k ohms) allows you to plug into a guitar amp, mixing board, even directly into a tape/digital recorder with the same fabulous results. The most amazing aspect of this technology is that the pickup is virtually invisible. The natural tone of the guitar is amplified without added overtones or coloration. What you play is what you hear: highs with a natural brilliance and a low end that's full and rich. The total result is a pickup system for acoustic guitar that sounds as alive through a combo amp or mixing board as it does acoustically.
