    Shadow Sonic Doubleplay preamp with NanoMAG & Nanoflex pickups

    Shadow has designed a dual pickup system representing the best acoustic amplification system on the market.

    The Sonic Doubleplay combines a Nanoflex pickup in the bridge and the NanoMAG in the fingerboard giving unbelievably rich and clear sound that no other guitar pickup system can match! Shadow's soundhole fitted preamps 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 heart of Sonic Doubleplay is its blend control. With the blend control you can mix the Nanoflex pickup in the bridge and the magnetic NanoMAG at the fingerboard. This gives you an incredible range of different sounds and colors for your individual playing. When Nanoflex technology was born it opened the window to the beautiful world of the natural guitar sound reproduction. Only Nanoflex pickups sense the vibrations of the strings and the movements of the soundboard simultaneously. The sound is sweet and percussive with exact attack. This gives the feeling of having a microphone mixed with an undersaddle pickup. NanoMAG is a small size magnetic pickup that fits at the end of the fingerboard. It is the only guitar pickup of this kind on the market that provides an acoustic sound, but can also produce a sweet blues or jazz sound. It is very resistant to feedback and has incredible dynamics. NanoMAG is a breakthrough in magnetic pickup technology that outperforms all the rest. The tone potentiometer controls the overall sound colour. It functions as a bass and treble control simultaneously. Phase switch inverts the signal and cancels the overall feedback. The battery LED will turn on when the battery is low and battery should be replaced within 30 minutes. To exchange the batteries push the left and right clip gently together and pull out the battery holder. The complete system is extremely light and weighs less than a 9V battery other preamps work with. In the early 1970s, Shadow launched the world's first dual pickup system. The Doubleplay combined a magnetic and undersaddle pickup and it represented the best acoustic amplification system available at this time. 30 years later Shadow has achieved this musical feat again.

  • Shadow 4 Band EQ Professional Acoustic & Classical Guitar Preamp

    Shadow 4 Band EQ Professional Acoustic & Classical Guitar Preamp

    Onboard Preamp with 4-band EQ and chromatic tuner active Nanoflex pickup

    SH T-Pro is a 4-band equalizer with automatic, chromatic tuner for acoustic and classical guitar The T-Pro’s accurate and stable tuner will take care that you will never play out of tune as it shows note and tune status. When you turn the tuner on it mutes the output signal. With the 4-band equalizer-controls (bass, mid, treble and brilliance) you will be able to adjust your personal, acoustic sound easily. Pressing the EQ-shape (tone controls are in middle position) switch will turn you linear output frequency curve into a V-shape form which means it will boost bass and trebles and cut the mid. Now you can use the tone controls to influence this V-shape sound and create you own personal sound. Notch filter and phase invert switch will keep feedback totally under control. When you turn notch filter knob fully left, notch filter is off. SH T-Pro is completely shielded and therefore 100% hum-free. It comes with an active Nanoflex pickup and an endpin connection. The 9V battery is under the preamp and is easily accessible. The LED will turn on when the battery power is low and battery should be replaced within 30 minutes. Fastening screws are fixed into the plastic plugs – and not into the wood of the instrument.
