Studio Tools for the Stage
Breathe life into your signal with additional harmonics for a superior, “natural warmth” and richness of tone. The Session VTC’s “tape-like” saturation is voiced specifically for the acoustic guitar and transports studio, analog warmth and inspiring playability to the stage.
Like having your very own sound engineer responding to the way you play, this circuitry continually suppresses problematic frequencies common in live performances, allowing the best qualities of your guitar to come through the mix. The built-in low, mid, and high frequency compressors are essentially “touch-sensitive” EQs that respond in real-time to your dynamics. The harder you strum, the more they compress and vice versa.
Unrivaled Dynamic Range
The Session VTC pairs studio electronics with our patented Element pickup for a polished sound on stage. Engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play, a flexible sensor picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances for the highest fidelity possible. Because the pickup tracks the motion of the top rather than the direct string attack, it mitigates the “quack” common in other under-saddle pickups and unlocks the Element’s unrivalled dynamic range.
