Product Description

The Virtual Acoustic uses the same technology as the Virtual Vintage line to create a pickup that's practically noise-free, even in comparison to humbuckers. The sound is very accurate, reproducing the natural dynamics and tonality of an acoustic instrument and enabling the Virtual Acoustic to capture the character of the particular guitar its mounted in. It installs easily in any round-hole steel string guitar. Its also got a volume control with a compensated tone network to minimize tone changes when the volume is adjusted. Supplied with a 12 foot cable.

Tech Talk:
When you plug the Virtual Acoustic into an amp with all the tone controls set flat, the sound is very even, but adjusting the controls, particularly on a good acoustic amp gets dramatic results. Highs sizzle, lows open up. If you're going to combine it with a piezo bridge pickup, we recommend using a phase-switch equipped preamp or mixer to achieve correct phase relationship and separation.

The Hype Is All True!
Your general opinion of this product.
DiMarzio’s claim that this passive pickup compares favorably to a humbucking acoustic pickup is right on the money. It’s maybe even quieter than a humbucker I also own and use. VERY pleased with this pickup!
