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.
