Mirrors the soundboard’s movement

Our original Element system features impressive body sensitivity, warmth, and articulation in a streamlined design. The system includes a prewired Element pickup, all-discrete electronics, and a soundhole mounted volume control.

Advanced Undersaddle Pickup with Unrivaled Dynamic Range

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.
