The B-Band UST (Under-Saddle Transducer)* still stands as the first transducer that alone, sounds better than many pickup / microphone combinations. An instrument equipped with a B-Band UST has enhanced countless productions, in the studio and in live performance, by being able to produce a great acoustic tone quickly.
Designated as the "4th Gen UST", the new 2002 UST has been stiffened for better string balance qualities, higher output, greater durability and even lower background noise. Evolution of the revolutionary B-Band UST has been prompted by the many knowledgeable and fantastic artists that B-Band works with. This significantly updated UST is a testament to that spirit.
Even though these changes have been made, the UST remains very thin - only 0.4 mm / .01" - and usually does not require a new string saddle or adjustment to saddle cavity. Since the UST is all one piece - i.e: not segmented - positioning for string spacing is a thing of the past. The UST is a flexible, rugged and constant structure all the way to the preamp. Connection to the preamp is an easy "plug in" without soldering.
