15 years of research and development in the field of under-saddle systems has culminated in Schertler’s LYDIA.
This pickup system uses 2 sensors.
1. Undersaddle ultra linear condenser microphone
2. RESOCOIL transducer a.k.a. contact micrphone
Two sensors with 2 different placements within your guitar enable you to create a wide variety of tones. With the solid diaphragm and integrated electronic settings, this pickup is designed to reproduce the true sound of your instrument
Select either pickup individually, or blend the two. Simple to operate, a double rotary controller is mounted (with double-sided tape) inside the sound hole. Adjust the overall volume level using one control and the blend using the other.
The DUAL system includes an A-CLASS preamp and is supplied with two lithium batteries. Available for both steel and nylon string guitars.
