Great product for a reasonable price

13.03.2016
Took a chance on this one only based on information read in forums and sites, but could not have been happier with the end result. Paired with the B-Band BB-1470 AST and B-Band UST 29R this kit really brings my 18-year-old Landola JE-8012 12-string guitar to life.

I was initially keen on getting an L.R. Baggs Stagepro Anthem, but the side-mounted preamp was too big for my guitar. However, the A6T is less intrusive (it's very light), aesthetically pleasing and the sound is very natural. I wanted a dual input system using sliders for the important controls and a good natural sound. The A6T fits the bill.

The installation demanded some preparation work (like any system will), but once the hole for the A6T was cut (the scary part) the rest was a simple procedure of following the instructions which are also available online in PDF format. I had no troubles with my installation (never done anything similar before).
[Note: I was replacing the system that shipped with the guitar originally that I suspect was an older B-Band related product, so apart from making the hole for the preamp larger, I was fortunate to not have to create other holes or shave off the bridge]

Needless to say, I am very happy with the end result and installation experience.

I got in touch with B-Band support regarding choosing the right UST size and experienced both a quick and helpful reply. The content on their web page looks a little old, but they are still in business.

If there is anything I can point my finger at in retrospect then maybe I would have liked to have the option of choosing a more wood natural colour for the A6T preamp cover (black). I see from searching that brownish options available, but not for sale.
The built-in tuner up/down indicators could be slightly more accurate. However, I am not sure other systems are any better and it really does the job.
Also, I would have liked to see B-Band to supply a side-mounted battery box in the same design/colour/material as the A6T for easier battery access as an extra option, since you kind of put together the kit yourself. Of course, that would involve more guitar body cutting, but I think I would have taken the chance.

I am being very fussy here. The product is very good and reasonably priced, and I have no trouble recommending it. I may buy an identical system again for any of my other guitars.
