EMG AS125U ACOUSTIC W/PreAmp
Amplify the natural tones of your guitar without added overtones or coloration.
The EMG-AS125U 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 the AT125 saddle pickup, APA-2 preamp, and the EMG Endpin Jack. Highs have a natural brilliance and the low-end is full and rich.
The AT125 EMG 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 AS125U System is for 1/8″ saddle width.
