Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression
for their sound, the Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement
as you play.
At the heart of the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick picks
up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. Tracking the motion of the top rather than a direct
string attack suppresses “quack” caused by compression and unlocks the Element’s
unrivaled dynamic range. The pickup’s minimalist construction lessens any influence
on the acoustic properties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and
guitar for the highest fidelity possible.
