[Musikmesse] Axon PU 100

AXON Technologies announce the availability of the new PU100 Hex Pickup for AXON Systems, developed in cooperation with guitar pickup manufacturer Seymour Duncan.


AXON Guitar to MIDI systems open up the new perspectives to Guitar Players through allowing them to play any synthesizer or virtual instrument with their favorite instrument. Additionally AXON allows for programming music with sequencer software via MIDI as well. This means that guitar players can be the music producer they always wanted to be, without the need to work with (from a guitar players perspective) quirky keyboard controllers. The new AXON PU 100 hexaphonic pickup additionally ensures accurate signal transmission.

Thanks to the PU 100, every guitar player can now use guitar-to-MIDI systems with his favorite guitar with no need not worry any longer about compatibility as the adjustable curvature of the pickup’s magnets allows the pickup system to be installed easily on virtually any steel-string guitar, whether electric or acoustic. A clearance of nine millimeters (0.354") between the normal pickup and bridge and ten millimeters (0.394") between body and strings are entirely sufficient for installing the pickup. AXON Technologies also provides a comprehensive range of mounting hardware.

Using the PU 100 control unit makes it easy to change all the important settings for the connected guitar-to-MIDI-controller, even on stage in the middle of the rush of a live concert. PU 100 allows everything needed to do quickly and accurately: adjust the volume, switch presets or mix between the guitar’s normal pickup and the AXON PU 100, while three color-coded LEDs indicate the operating status of the mix.

Features:

* Hexaphonic guitar pickup
* Duncan designed pickup element
* Adjustable pole piece curve
* 3 LED status display
* Optimized controller layout for easy access
* Adjustable cable length
* Compatible with all AXON models and other 13-pin devices

The AXON Technologies PU 100 pickup is compatible with all Guitar-to-MIDI systems on the market that require a hexaphonic pickup. It will be available worldwide starting May 2008 for an MSRP of 199$/149€.
