Advanced redevelopment at B-Band brings a totally new AST (Acoustic Soundboard Transducer). A vast improvement in controlling the AST transducers own resonance frequency makes for a unprecedented natural acoustic sound, even at high volume levels. Also, this AST is compatible with all B-Band onboard preamps (except 2150 preamp)! The newly designed B-Band AST, with a bigger pickup surface (14 mm / .55" x 70 mm / 2.75"), acts to capture all the detailed acoustics of the instrument without sounding boxy. It has all the advantages of a microphone, without the negatives of feedback and positioning.
Positioning of the AST is not critical making installation fast. The AST attaches to the guitar's bridge plate with a special two sided tape. String balance is always even.
The AST is an ultra-thin flexible and rugged constant structure all the way to the preamp. Connection to the preamp is an easy "plug in" without soldering.
