Shadow SH Sonic Doubleplay

Pickup and Sound Hole Preamplifier

The Legend Returns...

In the early 1970s, Shadow introduced the world's first dual pickup system. "Doubleplay" combined magnetic and under-saddle pickups and started a new era in the pickup industry.

30 Years later, Shadow rewrites history with the new edition of this legend and presents a dual pickup system that sets new standards.

Shadows sound hole preamps for acoustic and classical guitars are designed for perfect sound, easy installation and preservation of the original state of the guitar. Due to the installation of the preamplifier in the sound hole, the usual cut-out of the guitar sides is prevented.

Unlike usual pickups, Nanoflex pickups do not only pick up the vibrations of the strings. Nanoflex captures the string vibrations AND the vibrations of the instrument body at the same time. As a result, Nanoflex pickups produce a sound similar to that of a microphone/bass pickup combination. No other pickup technology achieves such a high level of amplified reproduction of the original sound of acoustic instruments.

NanoMAG is the only pickup of its kind, with a sound spectrum ranging from the authentic Western guitar sound to warm blues and jazz sounds. Furthermore, the pickup is characterised by high feedback resistance and impressive dynamics.

The heart of Sonic Doubplay is the blend knob. Through individual mixing of Nanoflex and NanoMAG, an unimagined sound diversity can be realised.

Tone provides a 2-Band control combined in one knob. Variation of the potentiometer either boosts the bass frequencies with careful attenuation of the treble, or adds more treble at slight bass decrease.

By pressing the phase switch, the frequency curve is rotated by 180 degrees, thus eliminating the usual "whistling" in feedback.

The LED indicator lights up when the batteries are low. The battery should be replaced within the next 30 minutes.

The complete system is extremely light and in total weighs less than a 9 V battery, which is commonly used with numerous preamplifiers.

A very good system, when it works

20.01.2016
I've tried quite a few pups and mics in my CF Martin 000, and this was a favorite!
Ok, it's not the most acoustic sound, but the magnetic fretboard end mounted mic gave a VERY good bass from the E and A strings. Perfect for the kind of music I play, but slightly electric guitar-ish overall sound..
The batteries may be changed with the strings in place. That's good! And the system is not too power thirsty either.
The under saddle pup gave up after a while though, leading me to install K&K instead

The best brand for piezo pickups!

Sebsweden, 09.06.2014
I bought this after watching a bunch of Youtube-videos, and really liking the sound of the Nanoflex pickup. I figured that the added Nanomag would be a great compliment, but alas - no. The Nanoflex sounds so good, that I never bothered to plug in the Nanomag. I tried it at a couple of gigs, but it just sounded like a dull version of the Nanoflex.

If you're in the market for a great under-saddle-pickup, then I cannot recommend the Nanoflex enough. I should mention that I always reduce the treble a lot, it can be a little spikey, but once reduced it sounds awesome! It is the only piezo that doesn't have the dreaded "piezo quack" that us guitar players loathe. Luckily, Thomann has a great assortment of Nanoflex pickups, with or without preamps. I cannot see a future where I will be using any other piezo pickup than the Nanoflex. It has cured my "gear-acquisition-syndrome" at least when it comes to pickups =).

I should also mention that I prefer a bass and mid-heavy acoustic guitar sound, with plenty of "twang". Like an acoustic Telecaster. The shimmery trebles that a lot of people prefer is lost on me. A Nanoflex in a Taylor Guitar is a marriage made in heaven to my ears!

The only downside I can think of is that the whole construction is a little delicate, especially the piezo pickup itself. I've had some problems mounting the preamp as well. The bracing in the guitar got in the way...

I've been using a Nanoflex for six years, and I'm completely satisfied. Get one!
