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!
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!
