An all-mahogany dreadnought with cutaway and Shadow NanoMag Pickup.
The Martin DC-15ME Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Case is constructed of genuine solid mahogany for a warm, full tone with distinctive character. This Martin D 14-fret dreadnought with cutaway also features a bone nut and saddle, diamond & square fingerboard inlays, and a satin finish. The mahogany neck with solid East Indian rosewood fingerboard adds to the guitar's acoustic warmth. If you need to go electric, the Shadow NanoMag Pickup is ready for faithful sound reproduction with volume and tone controls discretely mounted inside the soundhole.
Structure of the Shadow NanoMag Pickup
NanoMAG combines various, high-quality Samarium Cobalt magnets with an air coil and active electronics, all encased within the smallest of packages. The small size of the NanoMAG pickup allows for installation at the end of the fingerboard. Because of its subtle construction, the NanoMAG mounts nearly invisibly and without detracting from an instrument’s aesthetic appearance. Moreover, epoxy resin and a special, highly conductive silver-platinum plating provide a shield that, in combination with active electronics, helps transmit a hum-free, low impedance output signal.
Sound Characteristics of the NanoMAG Pickup
The NanoMAG’s low impedance output, responsible for an utterly noise-free signal with excellent dynamics, also maintains perfect balance among strings. Low impedance signals, in contrast to high impedance, have the advantage of much greater power capacity, which makes them less sensitive to disturbances. In other words, low impedance signals deliver more power, less noise and, as a result, simply sound better. The NanoMAG’s open sound thus carries over what is so essential to an acoustic feel: overtones and harmonics of a completely natural sounding character. Includes case.
