A.R.T. (Acoustic Resonance Transducer) Pickup/Preamp System
Our A.R.T. pickup system is used on a number of our steel string guitars and has received high acclaim for its superb sound quality, incredible dynamics, and outstanding feedback rejection. Our engineers designed the A.R.T. System 61 especially for the NX Series, to faithfully reproduce the tone and dynamics of nylon strings. Combining a number of exclusive technologies, the A.R.T. system affords the NX Series the versality to accommodate an incredible range of playing styles from fingerstyle to pick to percussive flamenco, all while retaining the natural tone of the guitar.
- Newly Developed Contact Pickup
A conventional contact pickup mounted underneath the saddle vibrates freely allowing it to pick up the natural body sound. On the other hand, it can pick up too much body sound resulting in feedback making positioning difficult. By comparison the A.R.T. system used on the NX Series guitars utilizes a multilayer damper in order to absorb excessive vibrations and control feedback. System 61 consists of two pickups mounted on the high and low sides of the guitar, each with its own control to provide the NX Series guitars with flexible tone tailoring.
- Newly Developed Preamp System
Complementing the characteristic warmth and full mid-range tone of the nylon string guitar, the System 61 preamp uses Yamaha's class-leading technology to offer an easily controllable, wide tonal range, making the sound of the NX perfect for any show or playing style.
The preamp offers indivisual volume control for both pickups, delivering a totally natural sound with robust lows and clear highs. A built-in 3-band EQ offers powerful sound shaping while an on-board tuner provides excellent usability during performance.
