BRIDGE PICKUP: The PolarTM directional piezo pick-up system responds selectively to either vertical vibration (for the sustained plucked sound, like an electric bass guitar), or lateral vibration (for dynamic bowing, and a percussive plucked sound).

MAGNETIC PICKUP: Low impedance EMG™ magnetic pick-up system, with individually adjustable coils, neodymium magnets and low-noise, hum-canceling pre-amp. Produces smooth pizzicato tone not unlike an electric bass guitar. (Magnetic pickups are not recommended for bowing.)
