HOAG INSTRUMENTS OFFERS OPTICAL PICKUP PACKAGE SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR INSTRUMENT MANUFACTURES. This package is easy to install and can be made to compliment other guitar designs. It is important for manufactures to maintain its own identity as well as offer state of the art pickups, Hoag optical package offers both. The pickup cover will be made by each manufacture to compliment their instrument styling. Hoag guitars have a few style suggestions on their web site. The overtones of the vibrating strings take on the characteristic of each guitar and will be more enhanced by the string composition; steel, bronze, nylon, etc. These overtones are transferred into the instruments by the strings and therefore each instrument has its own special sound. The optical pickup senses these nuances and delivers them directly to the amplifying system.. The waveform pictured, is taken from an oscilloscope. It shows the start of the fundamental note and its harmonics. These harmonics also differ with each plectrum strike, and where the string is struck. The harmonics ride along the string and reduce in amplitude as the note is sustained. The optical pickup is very responsive to the slightest touch of the string and has a longer sustain than other pickups. Sound samples of the Hoag optical pickup is demonstrated on their web site. Hoag optical pickup packages is not limited to company size but will have a minimum order. Prices will be quoted by request on the web site www.opticalguitars.com
