Double Helix Pickup - K&K Sound
Includes installation and setup
The Double Helix is a hum-cancelling, dual-coil soundhole pickup for steel-string acoustic guitars. It features a phase switch and a unique tone switch that allows players to easily change from a bright “GLOSS” setting to a more substantial “STEAM” setting.
The Double Helix features two switches, which are easily accessible even during play. One switch is for the phase, and the second switch is for tone.
The phase switch allows the player to adjust the phase of the pickup, so the Double Helix will harmonize with any existing pickup already in the guitar. The tone switch allows the player to choose from two settings: GLOSS, a fine and bright tone that sounds very acoustic, and STEAM, a more substantial and louder tone generally associated with soundhole pickups. Both tone settings are hum cancelling.
The Double Helix can be used as a stand-alone pickup for players who want a simple setup and a plug-and-play amplification solution. Even so, the Double Helix is a top-of-the-line solution that delivers K&K’s signature quality and sound. The tone switch will be an eye opener for players who have used other soundhole pickups. Having a setting for strumming (GLOSS) and another one for melody lines (STEAM) is almost like having a "Les Paul" with two pickups, one for "rhythm" and one for "lead"! All this is done in purely passive fashion, no battery or electronic circuit inside the guitar is needed!
Include this pickup with any guitar purchase from Richard Wilson Guitars for free installation and setup.
