Tacoma E2 Preamp: EMG Tone Bar System made exclusively for Tacoma Guitars. Coupling a Piezo electric film pickup with a fixed curve active EQ, the Tone Bar is simple, and has an amazing natural sound. It faithfully amplifies every subtle nuance and dynamic without compression or clipping. The E2 is fixed in place with a locking ball bearing system in the endpin and our unique Velcro canvas battery bag holds the battery secure to the head block for easy removal.
Tacoma E3 Preamp: Made by L.R. Baggs exclusively for Tacoma Guitars. The Tacoma E3 preamp system utilizes a ribbon transducer element with unlimited dynamic range by sensing vibrations from the top of the guitar. The preamp is a pure class A, discrete FET. The Quasi-passive EQ section is a synthesized cap and coil circuit in parallel with the original signal. The units are custom voiced for Tacoma Guitars' line, and are also tuned specifically for use in either guitars or basses. The preamp features adjustable volume, bass, midrange, treble, and phase controls all encased in a fashionable brass faceplate mounting.
Tacoma E4 Preamp: Fishman Prefix Plus EQ with Matrix pickup offers an exceptional range of control and allows the player to find his/her sound in any live situation, while still delivering one of the best studio signals ever for an onboard EQ. The Prefix Plus EQ system features adjustable boost/cut style Bass, Treble, Contour, Brilliance, and Frequency controls. It also has sweep able rotary Notch, Volume, and Phase controls. The most unique feature is a retractable hinge mounting which allows the user to access the entire circuit board and battery while the housing itself remains fixed to the side of the guitar.
Tacoma E6 Preamp: Miratone system by L.R. Baggs proprietary to Tacoma. The newest under saddle pickup paired with an all-discrete class A preamp. The Miratone system features Volume and EQ controls for tone shaping and a Notch Filter to accurately locate and eradicate feedback from high-end air resonances. The preamp also features a hidden click lock battery access, which allows for a simple battery change, and battery LED to monitor power consumption.
Tacoma E7 Preamp: EMF B-Band with Core 99 preamp. The B-Band pickup is a unique condenser element that works just like a microphone diaphragm. It senses vibrations from the top, as well as reflected soundwaves from the interior of the guitar. The preamp has adjustable internal switching for low and high frequency boost, gain boost and low frequency cut. This optimizes the preamp for any body size - from a Parlor guitar to the Thunderchief acoustic bass without changing overall tone.
