A pickup that captures the natural sounds of rhythmic and percussive instruments.
The D-TAR Big Soundspot is an extremely versatile pickup that captures the sound of such diverse instruments
as berimbau, hammer dulcimer, harmonica, kalimba, log drum, 6- and 12-string steel-string acoustic and nylon-string classical
guitars and others.
SoundSpots are ultra-sensitive piezo crystal transducer pickups suitable for stringed and non-stringed
acoustic and ethnic instruments. Unlike other dot-type transducer pickups, each SoundSpot is hand ground to extremely fine
tolerances. This process, along with the selection of materials, produces a pickup with a very thin surface that can maintain
its strength and flexibility. The result is a pickup that is ultra-sensitive to your acoustic instrument's surface vibrations
and, therefore, is extremely natural and warm sounding.
D-TAR - Duncan/Turner Acoustic Research
Seymour Duncan and Rick Turner are two legends who spent years working with musicians, perfecting their tone. Seymour founded
his self-named company in 1978 which has become well-known for its wide variety of guitar and bass pickups used by just about
every name player from Billie Joe Armstrong to Angus Young. Rick co-founded Alembic, was president of Gibson Labs West Coast
R&D Division, co-founded Highlander Musical Audio making piezo acoustic guitar pickups for Lindsay Buckingham, Ry Cooder,
David Lindley, and Andy Summers, and runs his own Renaissance Guitars. Now Seymour and Rick are working together to create
innovative products for acoustic musicians. Their D-TAR motto: "With respect to acoustic tone."
