The iBeam Onboard Retrofit System is a direct drop-in replacement for the ubiquitous ''brand-X'' system found in many guitars, including Taylor™ and Martin™. The system pairs the MIPA award-winning iBeam bridge plate transducer with a handsome side-mounted battery access preamp, complete with onboard EQ, phase and notch filter controls. Now you can get the acclaimed L.R. Baggs tone in an onboard system with no cutting, soldering and absolutely no modifications to your guitar whatsoever. (when retrofitting)
The preamp battery access is seamless and slick, with a satisfying click-lock action and hidden drawer. The electronics are based on our award winning Para DI circuitry and it also includes the new Garrett Null™ for effective feedback control. The preamp itself will simply drop into the same hole as several other factory-installed systems with the use of only a small Phillips head screwdriver. And our iBeam -- winner of MIPA's ''best pickup'' award for 2002 -- continues to get rave reviews from end users and magazines for its amazing tone and truthful reproduction of the guitar. Simply put, this long-awaited system is satisfaction for sonic sufferers.
