SH Sonic Nanoflex is an easy-to fit preamp system for acoustic and classical guitar. With the 2-band equalizer-controls (bass and treble) you will be able to adjust your personal, acoustic sound easily.
Because Sonic preamps are installed into the soundhole there is no need to cut a hole in the bout/frame of the guitar. The system works with two 3V cell batteries and comes with an active Nanoflex pickup.
When Nanoflex technology was born it opened the window to the beautiful world of the natural guitar sound reproduction. Only Nanoflex pickups sense the vibrations of the strings and the movements of the soundboard simultaneously. The sound is sweet and percussive with exact attack. This gives the feeling of having a microphone mixed with an undersaddle pickup.
Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, no sound will be lost and no hum created.
Phase switch inverts the signal and cancels overall feedback. The battery LED will turn on when the battery is low and battery should be replaced within 30 minutes.
The complete system is extremely light and weighs less than a 9V battery other preamps work with.
Nanoflex pickups do not only take the vibrations of the strings like common undersaddle pickups. Nanoflex senses the vibrations of the strings AND the body of the instrument simultaneously. This gives the equivalent of having a condenser-microphone mixed with an undersaddle pickup. No other technology gives you this high level of sound reproduction.
The pickup's flexible sensor made of 7 different, specially chosen material layers is capable of registering the pressure of the bridge saddle which transmits the string vibrations and at the same time the vibrations and movements of the instrument's soundboard precisely and absolutely accurately. To protect this pure natural acoustic sound Shadow developed an unique technology that amplifies and protects the sound signal directly on the pickup. Unlike other pickups, the Nanoflex pickup signal is not passing through even a single millimetre of the wire and therefore eliminates environmental disturbances before the connection cable.
