Seymour Duncan Wavelength Solo

The pickup you see here spent many years going by the D-TAR Wavelength designation, but now that Seymour Duncan has streamlined their branding a bit, it's the Wavelength Solo (to distinguish it from the Wavelength Duo). And here's the best news:  Other than the label on the packaging, exactly nothing has changed about the pickup. It's the same great design as you've been playing with all these years.

It features the same balanced, dynamic tone, and the same killer dynamic range of an 18-volt preamp. It still includes a tone pot (inside the guitar, on the preamp) for improved EQ control. And, as before, this is my favorite undersaddle pickup. Still.

I've ordered products from these folks while living in 3 different countries, but that hasn't affected their ability to provide stellar service one bit.
Who else sends you a hand-written card thanking you for your order?!
Oh yeah, the wavelength pickup (3rd one I've had) is unbeatable, imho.

Say Good-bye to Quack!

I have had several guitars equipped with the DTAR Wavelength, and I am a loyal fan of this UST. Thanks to Shoreline for offering one of the market's finest UST's. The 18v preamp provides headroom galore, with no quack. If you're looking for a good undersaddle pickup for your acoustic, look no further than the Wavelength. In it, you'll find a GREAT one!

Outstanding Under Saddle Pickup...Goodbye Quack!

The Dtar Wave-Length is an outstanding under saddle transducer (UST) pickup.

I have the DTar Wave-Length installed in my mid-70s Gibson J-50. I play directly (no preamp needed!) into either my Carvin AG200 amp or into a PA. The Wave-Length seems to require very little EQ adjustment (I usually boost the bass just a touch), and it performs beautifully! Most impressively, there is no unpleasant UST "quack"! The tone is natural, bright, and warm. Also, the Wave-Length picks up right hand dynamics beautifully (better than any other pickup I've played).

This pickup does not provide a perfect replica of the acoustic tone of the guitar, but I really like the tone it does provides. I think it is a very desirable and interesting amplified acoustic tone. Truth be told, I actually prefer it to the tone I get with my K&K equipped guitars for most applications.

A great pickup. Highly recommended!
