HOAG INSTRUMENTS, release their MIDI PACKAGE option FOR BASS
HOAG INSTRUMENTS, release their MIDI PACKAGE option FOR BASS. K-MAX-MIDI BASS has been added to the product line of HOAG GUITARS. It joins the K-MAX-25 midi guitar that was released in June of this year. Together, they offer a spectrum of sound that is second to none. Optical Pickups are the flagship to Hoag Instruments. The audio range, simplicity of design and ease of installation, has made it an obvious choice for new instrument design.
The midi package is an analog divided pickup system, specially designed for the 13-pin MIDI guitar interface.
Hoag optical pickups have an audio range from a few hertz to well over human hearing. However, if you want to extend the sounds beyond the natural bass, you may use the midi capability. Connect it to a midi interface and play along with your bass lines. The 5 string bass is also available with midi. It has the same quick response and the ability to latch onto the lowest string fundamental. Prices for the 4 string model start at $1295, 5 string start at $1495, with midi package add $200.
