The Virtual AcousticÂ™ uses the same technology as the Virtual VintageÂ® line to create a pickup that's practically noise-freeÂ—even compared to humbuckers. The sound is both warm and open, reproducing the natural dynamics and tonality of steel-string guitars and enabling the Virtual AcousticÂ™ to capture the character of the particular instrument it's mounted in. Like the Super Natural PlusÂ™, the Virtual AcousticÂ™ installs easily with foam-insulated mounting brackets, which can be cut down in order to accommodate guitars with smaller soundholes. Twelve adjustable pole pieces allow precise string balance. It also has a volume control with a compensated tone networkÂ—to minimize tone changes when the volume is adjustedÂ—and a 12-foot cable.
