The uncompromising, earthy rock sound of the legendary humbucking pickups became the holy grail of generations of electric guitar players, but they faced a problem: What did they do when the next song on the set list is a soulful ballad, which needs a brilliant acoustic sound?
Up until now, the only thing to do is change instruments. No matter how good your ‘Clean’ tone is, it can never match up to a true acoustic guitar.
This problem is now a thing of the past thanks to Shadow’s active NanoMAG pickup technology. NanoMAG – which can be fitted in the fingerboard of your instrument – compliments the traditional Humbucker sound by adding a clear, proper acoustic tone to your electric guitar.
With an ultra-wide frequency response, the NanoMAG captures all the harmonics and subtle acoustic overtones that regular magnetic pickups cannot. Using the front controls, you can isolate the humbuckers, isolate the NanoMAG or mix tones freely. Using the dual outputs, you can run the Humbuckers and NanoMAG pickups to separate outputs for true STEREO sound. But that’s not all: The NanoMAG can also be seamlessly blended with your humbucker sound. You now have more tonal possibilities than you ever imagined on your electric guitar!
With this revolutionary system you can play a crystal clear ballad, a dirty blues riff and an ultra-heavy metal riff with the same guitar — nothing is impossible. Now, you have your favourite guitar with two distinct tonal characters and infinite combinations. Go ahead and check it out yourself!
