I bought my Takamine P7NC a few years ago when they first were built. The CTP-2 was state of the art then, and it truly has been a fabulous sound. However. Some things were missing: firstly, when you plugged the guitar in the tube fired up, so battery was wasted (I need a 'standby' mode). Secondly, I need a notch filter to handle body resonance feedback in live situations. Otherwise, the CTP-2 was perfect.

The CTP-3 gives a standby button and notch filtering, and a 'boost' for in-out of 'lead'. Lovely. So I bought the CTP-3 from Thomann, it arrived, and the pretty simple swap-out ends up with an upgrade for my lovely, and now mature and even sweeter-sounding, Takamine P7NC.

True satisfaction. A great guitar, and it really is when plugged, made better - particularly live. Plugged, Takamine guitars, certainly at the upper end, are a joy to use because the genuinely unique tube pre-amp lends warmth and thickness to the sound in a properly analogue way - something slightly lost in the digital world.

I'm busted - a much thicker sound out of my Takamine

My "old" Takamine had a standard preamp (CT4B) and I was using it for about 4 years on stage. I (or better foh) always had to equalize the guitar signal to get a "meaty" and at the same time crispy signal.
Now the new CTP-3 came up and I read just overwhelming reviews - watched some videos on YT and came to the conclusion: I need to try this.
Ordered - next day it has been deliverd (thanks to the T-Team - always great and fast work). I just had to "unplug" the original preamp, plug the existing cables to the CTP-3 and slide it in - done.
After a short (30sec) warmup of the tube: there comes the sun - a sound what I never expected from my guitar. No equalizer - straight through - perfect sound.
My personal opinion: highly recommended - but don't forget the spare batteries.....
