"I was searching for a pickup that could be installed on
an acoustic guitar (without
permanent modification), that would allow separate
outputs for the bass strings. I was amazed to
find that the Ubertar pickup fits the bill exactly. By
mounting it in the sound-hole I can send the signal to an
octave-divider pedal and
still use the piezo pickup for regular acoustic sounds.
This allows me to give the impression of playing bass and
guitar at the same time, or just reinforce the bottom two
strings with a lower octave. The pickup is all passive, so
no extra batteries required, and is super quiet too, and
isolates the individual strings very well. It also looks
like a regular single coil and can be mounted in any way a
regular strat pickup can be mounted. This has become a
major part of my setup. Great work Paul!

"I've seen a lot of guitars. Heck, I've owned a lot of
guitars. Those HS (hexaphonic stereo) guitars are some of
the best I've ever seen (or heard). Good job."
- Steve Ripley, designer of the Kramer Ripley stereo guitar,
including the one used by Eddie Van Halen
"I'm loving the pickup. Happy to have found you, great

"You are awesome. We are using the HELL out of this
thing and these swept arpeggios at mach 5 are sounding
incredible. The separation is astounding. Really. Like
almost NO crosstalk sometimes depending on the part. That
is incredible. I LOVE the hexaphonic pickup guitar, a LOT.
It is simply perfect for the way I think music should

"I want you to know that over the years, I've had Hex
pickups built for me by Bartolini, Alembic, and Jason
Lollar, and none of them worked as well as yours. I just
thought I'd let you know. Thanks again!"
