EMG's piezo film pickup captures the true natural sound of your guitar with a purity unmatched by any other acoustic pickup. Located under the bridge saddle, the EMG-AT93 captures rich sound of the guitar while reducing the top noise endemic to top-mounted pickups.
All our under-saddle pickups use EMG's ''bimorph'' piezo film design for which EMG has been granted two U.S. Patents (Nos. 5123325 and 5204487). This unique design combines two piezo film layers using much less adhesive for purer sound while increasing the pickup output level.
The entire installation is invisible (including the preamp, which mounts internally in the guitar body) so there are no wires or obstructions on the exterior of the guitar. No adhesives or damping materials are used in the installation of the pickup to prevent resonances as well as to preserve the acoustic sound of the guitar.
The AT93 pickup element is 3/32'' (0.93''/2.3mm) which is perfect for most Martins. The AT93L element is the same width but comes in a two-part design for use on guitars that have a split bridge saddle
