The iBeam Active pairs the iBeam with a pre-contoured, proprietary, all-discrete Class A FET 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-andplay 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.

Features:
• Quick and easy installation
• Includes iBeam placement jig (pin bridge guitars only)
• Peel-and-stick
• Natural string to string balance and dynamics
• Fits most X-Braced guitars
• All-discrete Class A preamp for warm, analog sound
• Available in steel and nylon string versions

Specifications:
• Length: 2.875
• Width: .425
• Weight: Less than 1/3 oz
• Battery: Single 9V
• Battery Life: 1000 hours

Made a pandemic purchase five months ago and installed this in my plain Taylor 414 (no cutaway & no electric). Easy enough to install following the instructions and using the little jig that come with it. Definitely minimally invasive. It does exactly what I wanted. It takes that warm sound which I love from this guitar and makes it louder. I doesn't make it sound like something else. At the moment I am using a little Fender 15 watt (?) practice amp and the only knob I turn is the volume. Bass, treble and mid range are all set at zero. Satisfied customer
