Shadow Releases Soundhole Fitted Preamps for Acoustics

- Press Release

In the early 1970’s Shadow launched the world’s first dual pickup system. The “Doubleplay” combined magnetic and undersaddle pickups and it was the best pickup system available at the time.

30 years later and just in time for 2007 Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Shadow has achieved this musical feat again: Shadow has designed a dual pickup system representing the best acoustic amplification system on the market.

Sonic preamp with Nanoflex and NanoMAG installed in a guitar

The “Sonic Doubleplay” combines a Nanoflex pickup in the bridge and the brand new NanoMAG in the fingerboard giving unbelievably rich and clear sound that no other pickup system can match! The heart of “Sonic Doubleplay” is its blend control. With the blend control you can mix Nanoflex and NanoMAG giving you an incredible range of different sounds and colours for your individual playing.

Shadow`s soundhole fitted preamps for acoustic and classical guitars are designed for sonic clarity, ease of installation and preservation of your instrument. Because Sonic preamps are installed into the soundhole there is no need to cut a hole in the bout/frame of the guitar. The complete system is extremely light and weighs less than a 9V battery other preamps work with.

The line includes four products with different features:

* Sonic Doubleplay: Soundhole fitted dual preamp system with Nanoflex & NanoMAG pickup for acoustic guitar.
* Sonic NanoMAG: Soundhole fitted preamp with Nanoflex pickup for acoustic guitar.
* Sonic Nanoflex: Soundhole fitted preamp with NanoMAG pickup for acoustic & classical guitar.
* Sonic Basic: Soundhole fitted preamp with Nanoflex pickup for acoustic & classical guitar.

These products will be available after the international music fair "Musikmesse Frankfurt" in Germany (28th - 31st March 2007) and shown on Shadow`s website within the next few days.
