The Eko Guitars PowerBlend PB01 is a two-system pickup: Magnetic (humbucker) and Condenser microphone; the Magnetic pickup picks up the sound from the strings during the performance, while the microphone, in addition to making more faithful the answer on the guitar's own sound, allows to use the guitar as a percussive instrument, using the most modern techniques for the instrument. The blend of Magnetic + Microphone sound gives a rich, full-bodied, warm, and powerful tone. PB01 is suitable for acoustic guitars with sound hole from 90mm to 105mm and is easy to install; it can be installed fixed or temporary without making any changes to the instrument. The 3V battery can be used 105 hours continuously: remember to disconnect the jack whenever you play the guitar with no amplification.

1. Loosen the strings.
