Hipshot has teamed up with famed instrument designer Ned Steinberger to offer guitar bridges with Differential™ piezo-electric technology. The result is a passive bridge transducer that delivers the output level of a conventional magnetic pickup with the sonic detail and brilliance of a fine acoustic instrument. The sound of the guitar in magnetic mode is unaffected, and no troublesome batteries required!
The power of Differential Technology is unleashed by optimizing the contrast between the ultra light weight bridge and the mass of the instrument body. High output piezo crystals are located precisely at the interface of these two extremes, enabling the system to translate the full energy and excitement of the vibrating string directly to the amplifier. Without the headroom limitations imposed by on-board batteries, the sound is totally distortion free with the full dynamics missing from conventional piezo systems that require battery power.
