Bridge Plate Pickup With "Mic-like" Fidelity

MIPA Award

The iBeam’s MIPA award-winning design employs a matched pair of virtually weightless film sensors that flex With the soundboard to trace your guitar’s voice much like diaphragms in a stereo mic. A key advantage over typical bridge plate sensors is the iBeam’s “cardioid” like response pattern that inhibits feedback and string squeak while selectively admitting rich tone-producting vibrations. Weighing less than 1/3 of an ounce, the pickup will not alter the guitar’s natural acoustics and easily mounts to the bridge plate With peel-and-stick adhesive.


iBeam Active System™
The iBeam Active pairs the iBeam With an all-discrete Class A endpin preamp With soundhole volume control. The sweet and ultra-quiet audiophile-grade preamp faithfully amplifies every nuance of the pickup. Superior sound and performance is built in for easy plug-and-play performance. An auxiliary passive channel is also available for adding a secondary pickup.

The iBeam Active is also great for direct studio or home recording. Comparison tests have demonstrated that the fidelity of this system is a great alternative to studio microphones.
