Endlich angekommen
30.07.2016
Seit über 30 Jahren spiele ich Akustikgitarre, meist mit relativ lauter Rockband, auch mal alleine, immer öffentlich.
Alle 5 Jahre hatte ich neue Pickups fast aller bekannten Hersteller und war immer mässig begeistert. Ging halt nicht besser. Mit dem Shadow Hex System bin ich endlich angekommen. Erstklassiger, direkter und trotzdem natürlicher Klang meiner Martin HD28 und meiner Larrivee 00. Die Möglichkeit, die Saiten einzeln im Pegel zu regeln ist der Hammer. Über die Bedienung kann ich wenig sagen, da ich den Preamp mit Klett an den Halsstock befestigt habe. Wollte einfach kein Loch in der Zarge :-) Die winzigen Stellpotis der 6 Saiten sind aber etwas fummelig zu bedienen, macht man aber auch nicht ständig. Beim Einbau brauchts handwerkliches Geschick, den geschlitzten Steg in der Breite per Sandpapier an den Slot anzupassen, ist nicht ganz leicht. An Montagematerial ist alles dabei, was benötigt wird, die Wertigkeit aller Komponenten ist trotz Kunststoff hoch, die Stecker kontakten sicher. Hammerteil.

Shadow SH 4020- A : Exactement ce qu'il me fallait
Multizic, 11.04.2019
J'ai acheté ce micro pour reprendre efficacement mon jeu de finger picking,

On choisit le gain de chacune des cordes ! Nickel pour traiter le son des basses en le séparant de celui des aigus et le rebalancer dans 2 entées séparées, une pour les aigus et une pour les basses et hop : il n'y plus qu'à mixer le tout et j'ai le son canon qu'on souhaite. C'est ce qu'il me fallait pour élargir le son de ma guitare et apporter l'effet naturel d'une géométrie sonore panoramique qui donne l'impression qu'on écoute une guitare géante. Bref, voici un système novateur qui apporte une réelle ampleur à la musique.

Le piezzo et le préamp sont très efficaces, y compris en utilisation standard.
Je ne mets que 4 étoiles pour la qualité de fabrication, car le boîtier n'est pas moche, mais il n'est pas spécialement beau non plus (enfin c'est une affaire de goûts). Quant au système d'immobilisation des fils à l'intérieur de la guitare, il est un peu cheap... Prévoir l'intervention d'un luthier pour refaire un sillet adapté au piezzo très étudié et spécifique.

Top Preis-Leistungsverhältnis
Ziri, 28.12.2018
Den Shadow SH 4020-A habe ich bereits in 3 Gitarren eingebaut und war jedesmal seh überzeugt. Besonders das Feature jede einzelne Saite mit einem eigenen Preset für die Signalstärke einzustellen kann manchmal sehr hilfreich sein.
Die Tunerfunktion arbeitet einwandfrei.
Der Klang dieses Preamp mit dem Nanoflex-Piezo-Tonabnehmer ist sehr natürlich.
Für mich ist bei diesem Preis-Leitungs-Verhältnis der SH 4020-A eine absolute Empfehlung.

Shadow SH 4020- A
Ralliman, 14.07.2017
Ich habe den Nanoflex vor 4 Jahren in meine Lakewood eingebaut nachdem ich ihn natürlich vorher ausprobiert hatte.Die Übertragung ist sehr gut und die Bedienung über den Preamp in der Zarge auch gut.Toll,dass man jede Saite einzeln regeln kann.Ich habe ihn schon in anderen Gitarren ausprobiert und er hat immer gut geklungen,oft besser als die schon vorhandenen Systeme.Nachteilig ist natürlich ,dass man den Preamp in die Zarge einlassen muß.
