OVERVIEW
Professional Magnetic/Microphone blend system for flat top acoustic guitar in a compact, easy to use package. Combining a humcancelling magnetic pickup with a very high quality microphone, conveys a totally accurate sound for on stage or recording. The Kudos Blend is designed to be as versatile as possible, with each part of the system, passive magnetic, active magnetic, or microphone, able to be used individually. Either passive magnetic, or active magnetic can be combined with the microphone.

Both microphone and active magnetic signals are buffered and brought up to standard instrument level by separate ultra low noise preamplifiers incorporated within the pickup casing. Power for the preamps and microphone is provided by two integral 3v lithium coin cells.

Stereo outputs permit separate EQ, routing, and blending of each signal path. Two toggle switches, accessible through the guitar soundhole, switch between passive/active magnetic pickup and microphone on/off.

A unique clamping system allows fitting into soundholes as small as 94mm (3.7”) diameter WITHOUT removing the strings, making battery changes quick and easy. The Kudos will fit smaller diameter soundholes, but strings will need to be slackened/removed for battery changes.

 

MAGNETIC PICKUP
The magnetic pickup is a humcancelling design with adjustable pole pieces, to work specifically with flat top acoustic guitar. It’s capable of capturing the full frequency range of the instrument, giving a warm, sparkling, harshness free acoustic sound, balanced by a deep, focused bass response. Using the MAG toggle switch, accessible through the guitar soundhole, switches between passive and active modes, further increasing the flexibility of the pickup. Passive mode bypasses the preamp, so functions without battery power. Active setting has 9dB gain.

MICROPHONE
Built-in ultra miniature omni capsule. This is a very high quality, precision engineered microphone capsule and gives outstanding results in an easy to use package.

CONNECT
For magnetic pickup only, use a standard ¼” mono jack to jack cable into a mixing desk, acoustic amp, or DI. Switch off the mic using the toggle switch.

For magnetic/mic blend, use a ¼” TRS jack to jack stereo cable, via a splitter, direct into the line inputs of a mixing desk, or via two DI boxes for long cable runs. You can also plug into separate channels of an acoustic amp such as the Fishman Loudbox /SA220 or similar.
