Dreadnought size, solid red spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and a multi-source pickup system.
The D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee Acoustic-Electric Guitar with DTAR-MS was designed to optimize the tight bass and clear trebles of the classic mahogany dreadnought. The scalloped braced red spruce top produces a dynamic range of tones, from warm and intimate to punchy and aggressive.
Adored by flat pickers for its loud projection, tight mids and punch, yet delicate enough for finger style playing, the D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee is a great choice for a wide variety of different styles. This model is equipped with the D-Tar Wave-Length Multi-Source pickup system for precise amplified sound reproduction.
D-Tar Wave-Length pickup and preamp system
The new Multi-Source combines the popular Wave-Length pickup system with a condenser microphone for versatility, flexibility and, of course, the most natural sound possible from your acoustic guitar.
The Multi-Source starts with the Wave-Length unitary design, piezoelectric co-polymer under-saddle pickup coupled to an 18-volt, low-noise, high-input impedance preamp with twice the dynamic range of typical 9-volt systems. The 18-volt preamp is powered by two "AA" batteries. With 18 volts, your signal has more headroom so hard strumming or plucking won't distort into piezo "quack" as easily.
With the addition of the highly-efficient miniature, omni-directional electret condenser microphone, you can amplify your acoustic guitar with startling clarity and accuracy. The mic is nestled in a special absorptive visco-elastic polymer shock mount for optimal isolation. Two low-profile knobs allow for master volume and microphone volume. Dial the microphone in to add just the right amount of "air"; dial it out to control feedback, if necessary. The microphone channel has two stages of low frequency roll-off to combat any tendency towards low frequency feedback. Also, full coverage copper shielding on the pickup insures immunity to external noise fields. This system is quiet.
