- the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes
- Using advanced Digital Signal Processing and real-world
insight into audio technology and recording techniques,
Yamaha have developed SRT – a pickup and preamp system
capable of delivering an amazingly natural, studio-quality
acoustic guitar tone. Sounds that were, until now, only
attainable by professional recording engineers using
expensive vintage microphones in world-class acoustic
spaces are now easily recreated by any player, on stage or
in the studio.
SRT does not artificially create a guitar tone, rather it creates
a faithful reproduction of the other elements that make up a
great guitar sound – the subtle ambience of the real space
between instrument and microphone, the characteristic EQ
voicing of a great sounding vintage mic, the different resonances captured when you move a mic around a guitar.
And because SRT uses your guitar's natural tone as a basis for this process, the result is phenomenally realistic and full of the acoustic character of your guitar.
Yamaha's proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.
