The Pure 12-String is our signature pickup for 12-string acoustic guitars. The Pure 12-String is a 3-head, bridge plate transducer. Bridge plate transducers are the optimal choice for achieving a rich, natural guitar sound. The Pure's position on the bridge plate provides the perfect balance of sound, picking up all the strings without sounding harsh or percussive and "listening" to the sound board to amplify the unique characteristics of your guitar. The result is a warm, full-range signal that sounds great even without a preamp!
The Pure 12-String's larger pickup heads produce an extra strong bass response and pronounced midrange. While this bass and midrange response is too strong for many guitars, especially very resonant ones, it sounds great in 12-string guitars and is a good alternative for guitars with heavy spruce tops and maple bridge plates.
Because the pickup heads are quite large, please check the bridge plate size of your guitar before you order. Please refer to this original size diagram of the Pure 12-String. If the pickups do not fit, the Pure Mini is a good alternative.
