D-TAR - Duncan/Turner Acoustic Research

Seymour Duncan and Rick Turner are two legends who spent years working with musicians, perfecting their tone. Seymour founded his self-named company in 1978 which has become well-known for its wide variety of guitar and bass pickups used by just about every name player from Billie Joe Armstrong to Angus Young. Rick co-founded Alembic, was president of Gibson Labs West Coast R&D Division, co-founded Highlander Musical Audio making piezo acoustic guitar pickups for Lindsay Buckingham, Ry Cooder, David Lindley, and Andy Summers, and runs his own Renaissance Guitars. Now Seymour and Rick are working together to create innovative products for acoustic musicians. Their D-TAR motto: "With respect to acoustic tone."

D-TAR Solstice

Do you want your acoustic guitar to sound True to Life when you amplify it? Then read on: I use three very different acoustics when I perform. Each has an internal mic and a pickup. One has a stereo send that I run through a Raven Labs PMB (sadly these units are extinct now). I needed something as good for the instruments with mono sends and I didn't want two of them. (I'm a Less Gear is More type of player.) After much research, the Solstice seemed the unit up for the task. I'm happy to say that right out of the box with very little tweaking, both mono-send instruments sounded True to Life.
