A1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup

This is A1! The best comes in small packages. B-Band has always thought small and unobtrusive, to let the wood work.
A direct descendant of the classic Core99 preamp, the new, single input, A1 preamp has a direct frequency response and 24 dB of gain. The electronics are mounted in a very small tube that is directly coupled with a high quality endpin jack making an all-in-one structure. This makes for easy mounting without adding much mass to the instrument.
Mated to either a UST or AST, the reproduced sound is amazingly clear and pure.
The A1 kit provides all the mounting hardware, 9-volt hold-tight battery clip and wire harness.
