One of the best available acoustic guitars meets a sophisticated preamp/pickup system!
Having inherited the craftsmanship of the Yamaha Houngzou HY Factory, the Yamaha LJX16CP Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar is one finely handcrafted guitar. Featuring its now famous LJX medium jumbo body, delivering exceptional resonant response and wide dynamic range coupled with its high quality studio microphone sound anywhere at any time available directly from the line out jack.
Countless recording sessions were done for SRT development
Bringing Back Lost Ambience; Yamaha's new proprietary Studio Response Technology (SRT) brings back the natural, ambient sound of an acoustic guitar, and it does it with the signal from the output jack.
The same tone that, until now, was only attainable by professional recording engineers in the world's finest studios is now easily usable by any player, on-stage or in the studio. Using a sound modeling technique that utilizes data obtained through extensive analysis of four acoustic elements that are missing from conventional pickup systems—string and body resonance, ambience, vintage microphone characteristics, and professional micing techniques, SRT delivers a natural, studio-quality acoustic guitar tone.
The new SRT system lets you choose from three different high-end mic types as well as two mic positions that let you use techniques similar to those used in a recording studio. The system provides a total of six setting patterns. The system also allows mixing of pickup and mic sound elements using the BLEND knob, and control of body resonance with the RESONANCE knob to create a wide range of rich, natural sounds.
