DIMARZIO ACOUSTIC GUITAR PICKUP
DiMARZIO ACOUSTIC GUITAR PICKUP
'Virtual Acoustic' Single Conductor, Ceramic Magnet
The Virtual Acoustic™ uses the same technology as the Virtual Vintage® line to create a pickup that’s practically noise-free - even compared to humbuckers. The sound is both warm and open, reproducing the natural dynamics and tonality of steel-string guitars and enabling the Virtual Acoustic™ to capture the character of the particular instrument it’s mounted in. Like the Super Natural Plus™, the Virtual Acoustic™ installs easily with foam-insulated mounting brackets, which can be cut down in order to accommodate guitars with smaller soundholes. Twelve adjustable pole pieces allow precise string balance. It also has a volume control with a compensated tone network - to minimize tone changes when the volume is adjusted - and a 12-foot cable.
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, DiMarzio recommends using a phase-switch equipped preamp or mixer to achieve correct phase relationship and separation.
