Top-Professional Jazz Guitar Pickup
Attila Zoller jazz guitar ring mount humbucker
As Shadow’s founder Joe Marinic met famous Jazz-legend Attila Zoller in the early 60’s and listened to him playing guitar, he realized that a magnetic pickup should be more than just a coil and a magnet. It was also clear that different music styles need different kinds of magnetic pickups. Together with Attila, Shadow developed the legendary SH AZ 49 which is still today the most respected pickup among jazz guitar players.
SH AZ 49 and SH AZ 48 are the world's most popular jazz guitar pickups. The SH AZ 49 features an unique "wide" string sampling field that produces a warm jazz tone witch precise, clear sound. Iron cores are trimmed to provide balanced string output and clear string definition when playing chords. Coils are fully shielded and vacuum epoxy sealed for reliable, noise-free performance. Attaches to the fingerboard and floats between the body and strings. Shielded single conductor output.
SH AZ 49 is a floating jazz-guitar humbucker, completely shielded and vacuum epoxy sealed. The flat frequency response enables every single note to be heard when playing chords.
