Going to NAMM 2016? Take some time to check out our pickups and support electronics from the inside and out. This demo XR-8 (eight string) system is going Anaheim and is installed in a laser-cut pickguard to showcase our build quality. Like the ones installed in the Strandberg Boden OS7 and Matt Szlachta’s Legator, this set sports all-passive Lo-Z coils along with our new 5-way switch, ‘active’ Bourns® volume control pot, and our active resonant filter. The new 5-way “Flex” switch takes advantage of the XR’s coil taps and offers the flexibility of multiple switching configurations in a solderless format. The new ‘active’ volume control with integrated ultra-low noise preamp features an onboard gain-trimmer for system optimization. Send us a message if you’d like to schedule a time to have a look and please take a moment to visit the Strandberg Guitars booth (#3383, Hall D) and see a comparable 7 string set in action. We hope to see you there!
