OVERVIEW

A magnetic pickup that mounts in any size soundhole.

Designed for acoustic guitars, the 3AV magnetic pickup mounts in any size soundhole. It has a bright, clear hum-canceller (stacked coil) with B-string compensation*. It includes the plastic mounting brackets and a 10-foot cable with strain relief. The brackets make it easy to install the pickup to your guitar for gigs at the coffee shop or stage and then remove when playing solo.

*The B-string is typically thicker than the high E-string and the solid cores of the wound strings. For that reason, the pickup compensates the B-string to ensure even output of all 6 strings.

      Comments about Bartolini 3AV Acoustic Guitar Soundhole Pickup:

      BETTER AT CONTROLLING HUM THAN OTHERS. THE UNIT HAD TO BE TRIMMED TO FIT AROUND GUITAR BRACING. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BAND SAW LIKE ME, IT WOULD BE A BOTHER. WHY NOT JUST HAVE A STRAIGHT BAR ACROSS THE HOLE PERPENDICULAR TO THE STRINGS. THAT WOULD INTERFERE LESS WITH THE ACOUSTICS OF THE GUITAR WHEN PLAYED UNAMPLIFIED. THE UNIT IS A BIT TOO DIFFICULT TO INSTALL AND UNINSTALL REPEATEDLY WITHOUT CAUSING WEAR AND TEAR ON THE PLASTIC THREADS. SOUNDS GREAT, TO BE SURE!
