The Acoustic Model™ is a piezo-electric transducer that can be mounted in any location on the guitar’s top. A non-hardening putty is used to mount the pickup, allowing simple installation and removal. Every acoustic guitar has its own balance of highs, mids and lows, and it’s easy to experiment with the position of the Acoustic Model™ to determine the spot that achieves the best tone for your taste. It can also be semi-permanently mounted on the inside face of the guitar and connected to an acoustic endpin jack, so it’s practically invisible. The Acoustic Model™ works on all steel, bronze, and nylon string instruments.
What comes to mind when you hear the Elemental™ are words such as “warm” and “friendly”. It’s sensitive to differences in picking attack, and “hears” the change in tone as the right hand moves along the string length. This makes the Elemental™ particularly suited to fingerpicking styles with small and medium-size guitars. Like the Super Natural Plus™, the Elemental™ installs easily with foam-insulated mounting brackets. Twelve adjustable pole pieces allow precise string balance, and there’s a convenient slide volume control and 12-foot cable.
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.
DiMarzio has always made magnetic soundhole pickups designed to stand alone with no processing. But we've always known that adding an active circuit designed to work with a specific pickup could go even further in creating a natural, open sound. We started with The Angel™ and developed The Angel Active in cooperation with Shadow Electronics. The electronics are mounted on an acoustic endpin jack, and include a volume control that attaches to the rim of the soundhole. The Angel can still be used as a passive pickup by attaching a standard guitar cable (included) instead of going to the endpin jack.
DiMarzio has always been known for magnetic pickups, but we believe the combination of magnetic and piezo can create a unique acoustic guitar sound. The wideband frequency response of the piezo together with the depth of the magnetic pickup opens up the soundstage, and the ability to select either sound as well as both together offers three distinct sounds. The Angel™ System consists of The Angel magnetic pickup, a Shadow Nanoflex saddle pickup, and a circuit built into the endpin jack which includes The Angel Active EQ system. We have also positioned volume and mix controls on the soundhole.
