D-TAR (Duncan-Turner Acoustic Research) was the brainchild of two of the industry's biggest heavyweights:  Rick Turner and Seymour Duncan. The result was an overwhelming success, with what I still take to be the best undersaddle pickup available right now (the Wavelength) complemented by the best blending preamp (the Solstice). Seymour Duncan discontinued the Solstice a couple of years ago, leaving a real vacuum for folks looking to dual-source their acoustic guitars. But the Multi-Source and Wavelength remain, which is great news for players who need the cut and punch of an undersaddle with an 18-volt preamp.
