Acoustic Guitar Undersaddle Pickup

Element Active System™

Advanced Undersaddle Pickup with Unrivaled Dynamic Range

Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths 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.

Element Active System™ Artists
 

Thompson SquareThompson Square
Thompson Square isn’t a real place, exactly. It’s the musical territory staked out by the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, an exciting and unpredictable area where country meets rock, rough meets smooth and one vagabond heart finds a harmonious common ground with another. It’s the sweet destination where two journeys end and another one begins. “It’s the place where we create our thing, a little fantasyland where we live,” Keifer says. Read More »

Ben Doerr - St. Paul de Vence
From incidental and unplanned beginnings, St. Paul de Vence has emerged out of one genuine step after another into the band they are today.  Indeed, they bring forth a sound that grows so directly out of who they are – a band of brothers, each artists in their own right - weaving together their multi-instrumental and vocal-harmony talents with a natural ease and joy reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

The Smoking Flowers
The Smoking Flowers
Though Scott Collins doesn’t say that going to Graceland to see Elvis Presley in his coffin influenced his future as a musician, it’s hard to believe it didn’t have an undeniable effect on his 3-year-old self. For Kim Collins, her future career as a singer/songwriter may have been a bit more predestined. For Kim, who grew up with a mother who was a singer and guitarist in a folk band, The Travelers, in the sixties, it was probably bred in the bone.
