Turn Up The Acoustic
The Epiphone SST Studio get its fabulous stage sound from a specially designed preamp system from Shadow Electronics of Germany. The old-style piezo pickups, which often distorted, crackled and "broke-up" under heavy strumming, have now been replaced with the Shadow NanoFlex™ pickup which provides amazing acoustic fidelity and a far superior vibration transfer of acoustic wave-form amplification.
Because of the NanoFlex’s ™ thin, flexible qualities, it fits unobtrusively in the saddle tray and ensures the best possible contact from the saddle and the bridge. The rim-mounted control panel features a Master Volume Fader, High EQ and Low EQ faders for greater tone control, and are flush-mounted and fit easily into a hard case to protect them from damage. Another great innovation for the SST system is an easy-access battery compartment for much simplified battery replacement, eliminating the old procedure of removing a back panel with a screwdriver.
