Lace Music Aluma P
Lace Music Products introduces its new replacement bass pickup, the Aluma P™ in celebration of Earth Day.
We're told that due to it's unique design the Aluma P™ shares with other Alumitone® Lace pickups, they are a low impact for Mother Earth while offering great tone and performance. Lace Music says that Alumitone® technology helps reduce the need for natural resources and the energy required to produce pickups in general, while producing a zero noise, light weight and full fidelity tone.
Using two separate pickups for the high and low strings without the need for a "bucking" traditional setup, the Aluma P™ is designed to generate high output clarity with huge bottom that was only available with a pre amp before. Apparently, the Aluma P™ not only eliminates the need for a pre amp, but also has zero noise.
Formally introduced for Earth Day, the Aluma P™ and Alumitone® family of pickups use 95% less copper wire then standard pickup designs. By reducing the need for copper it saves valuable resources, reduces open pit mining and the very high energy need for converting copper ore to fine wire.
The all passive Aluma P™ system technology also eliminates the need for a battery powered pre amp, another source of pollution for the Earth. Batteries are laden with highly toxic chemicals and most often find themselves in landfills.
The main exoskeleton of the Alumitone family is recyclable aluminum offering light weight. This Aluminum primary offers a faster attack and higher fidelity for tone then copper. The Aluma P™ system weighs only 2.56 ounces. The light weight, in turn means less weight and cost in fuel to transport, not to mention reducing the weight of your bass.
Suggested retail price is $ 159.99 for a system in black anodize and $179.99 in chrome.
