Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependenton string compression for their sound, the Element was engineered tomirror the soundboard's actual movement as you play.

At the heartof the pickup, a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inchthick picks up the guitar's most delicate nuances. Tracking the motionof the top rather than a direct string attack suppresses "quack" causedby compression and unlocks the Element's unrivaled dynamic range. Thepickup's minimalist construction lessens any influence on the acousticproperties and creates an intimate coupling between the pickup andguitar for the highest fidelity possible.

The patented one-size-fits-all Element reproduces impressive bodysensitivity and articulation. It also has the greatest dynamic range ofany undersaddle pickup available. The Element Active System features anall-discrete Class A endpin preamp and a soundhole-mounted volumecontrol for easy access. Also included is our battery bag for securebattery retention.
