A transducer pickup sensitive enough for any stringed or non-stringed acoustic instrument.
The D-TAR Twin SoundSpot Classic is a transducer that works well with acoustic bass guitar, bongos, bouzouki, cello, piano, arch top guitar, oud (arabian fretless lute), sitar, guitarra portuguesa, steel drum, hammer dulcimer (stereo), classical guitar, and other acoustic instruments.
D-TAR SoundSpots are ultra-sensitive piezo crystal pickups suitable for stringed and non-stringed acoustic and ethnic instruments. Unlike other dot-type transducer pickups, each SoundSpot is hand ground to extremely fine tolerances. This process, along with the selection of materials, yields a pickup with a very thin surface that can maintain its strength and flexibility. The result is a pickup that is ultra-sensitive to an acoustic instrument's surface vibrations and, therefore, is extremely natural and warm sounding.
D-TAR - Duncan/Turner Acoustic Research
Seymour Duncan and Rick Turner are two legends who spent years working with musicians, perfecting their tone. Seymour founded his self-named company in 1978 which has become well-known for its wide variety of guitar and bass pickups used by just about every name player from Billie Joe Armstrong to Angus Young. Rick co-founded Alembic, was president of Gibson Labs West Coast R&D Division, co-founded Highlander Musical Audio making piezo acoustic guitar pickups for Lindsay Buckingham, Ry Cooder, David Lindley, and Andy Summers, and runs his own Renaissance Guitars. Now Seymour and Rick are working together to create innovative products for acoustic musicians. Their D-TAR motto: "With respect to acoustic tone."
