The Pick Up: The Superb Sounding SYS650
The brand new Alvarez SYS650, designed by B-BAND. We chose to work with B-BAND simply because we thought their reproduction of acoustic sound was awesome. The 650 uses B-BAND's patented electret film technology instead of Piezo materials. A Piezo pickup tends to import a sound of their own into the electrified tone, which is often described as synthetic .You don't get this with the B-BAND technology which works similar to that of a condenser microphone, allowing for excellent reproduction of the instruments true voice. The SYS650 is a dual pick-up system incorporating one under saddle pick up and a transducer pick up placed under the soundboard. Either pick up can be selected or you can blend between the two to find subtle changes in response for lead, picking or rhythm work. The system also has a fully chromatic, precision tuner with backlit LCD screen; 3-bands of rotary EQ and a great notch control that identifies and deals with any feedback extremely well. The SYS650 is available on all Alvarez Artist* and Masterworks electric acoustic guitars.
