An improved microphone and re-voiced electronics offer a warmer, more natural acoustic tone. Easily accessible Mic/Pickup Blend Control offers fingertip control to dial in just the right blend. For unequalled sound quality and ease of use, it’s hard to beat the performance of the Rare Earth Blend.
Cutting-edge neodymium magnets provide excellent string-to-string balance while the pickup’s active electronics and low-noise, discrete circuitry design keep the sound pure and clean with smooth response throughout the frequency range.
