The TransAcoustic brings all of the sonic colours that an electric/acoustic produces in a fully cablefree design. Plug in if you want to record or broadcast your songs to the world.
An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back resonates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations generated by the actuator are then transmitted to the body of the guitar and to the air in and around it, resulting in authentic reverb and chorus sounds that actually radiate from within the body.
Three simple controls adjust the effects levels and line out volume level. The small knobs occupy less space, reducing the acoustic sound loss that results from removing body wood.. (A) Chorus Control . (B) Reverb Control (Room / Hall). (C) TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control. * Pressing the TA Switch for longer than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.. * When a cable is connected to the Line Out jack, the volume can be adjusted by rotating knob (C).. * The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.
Designed to Provide Superb Acoustic Guitar Sound
The body is an all-solid guitar based on the L-series.. A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L seriesâ€™ characteristic bright tone while enhancing the low end.. Treating the tops with Yamahaâ€™ s exclusive A.R.E. process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone, making it sound as though you'd been playing it for years, from the very first moment you pick it up.. The fact that this guitar has been designed with an insistence on sound quality is what allows it to produce effected sounds that feels pure and natural.
High Comfortable Playability
Straighter neck taper and hand-rolled fingerboard edges result in an instrument that can be played for hours without any stress.. The 5-ply neck design featured in all TransAcoustic Guitars is constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies with a double-action adjustable rod, creating a strong, stable neck that resists warping.
The battery box is integrated into the end-pin jack, requiring fewer holes in the body and thus reducing acoustic sound loss. Connect a cable from the jack to a PA or amp to use the TA instrument as an acoustic-electric guitar.
