B-Band A1.2N / AST

One of the most attractive features of B-Band pickups is the easy setup: There's no soldering or wire stripping of any kind. B-Band's under-saddle and soundboard transducers all use the same proprietary connector to plug easily into any B-Band preamp. This does mean that every B-Band pickup requires a B-Band preamp, but given how inexpensive these combos are, this ends up being a very attractive solution.

The pickup listed here combines the standard B-Band endpin jack preamp with the soundboard transducer pictured on this page—and it's our best-selling B-Band pickup combo. It's quite easy to install (I cut my guitar-modification teeth installing a ton of these), and it's easy to make it sound good. As with all soundboard pickups, feedback can be an issue, but if you're on quiet stages, this pickup does the trick quite nicely.

A1.2N in an HD28

I bought one of these to replace a fishman that I was getting a low frequency buzz from. I had B Band fitted to a Collings D2H in 2008 and it's just a great well balanced sound.
Anyway I decide have a go and fit one myself and I am definitely not a do it yourself person. The preamp fitted into the hole at the back of the guitar with some adjustment to the nut inside the guitar body. B band provide a card board guide to help you get the placement right for the pick up (transducer is it called?) you know the flat thing that sticks to the bridge plate! In the end I decided not to use the guide.
Just remove the film to reveal the sticky bit then hold it in one hand with fingers at either end and stick it centrally onto the bridge plate feeling for the back edge of the plate. Dead easy, and that was it. Boy, did I feel proud.
The sound is well balanced, warm and loud. The volume control is also a neat touch. Really love the sound.
Recommend it, thanks B Band
