The Trinity 12-String is a dual source pickup/internal mic system with a dual-channel preamp for steel-string guitars. The three-head, bridge plate pickup is based on the same technology as our Pure 12-String.
Because the pickup heads are quite large, please check the bridge plate size of your guitar before you order. Click here for an original size diagram of the Pure 12-String. If the pickups do not fit, the Trinity Mini is a good alternative.
The Trinity Microphone features an integrated 5″ gooseneck (allowing it to be positioned in a number of ways, incuding outside the soundhole) and 20-20,000 Hz frequency range. The Trinity Preamp is a dual-channel, external, beltclip model with adjustable gain-vol-bass-mid-treb for each channel. The system comes with a stereo endpin jack and a 6-foot stereo cable–no soldering required!
Why choose the Trinity Classic over a solo pickup, like the Pure?
The Trinity Classic delivers an even more authentic tone than the Pure Classic pickup alone. The mic adds some extra air and shimmer to the overall sound, which is very beneficial to the purely acoustic guitarist. The mic can be included in the mix as much as the situation allows for, using the preamp’s controls. As a general rule, the lower the stage volume, the more mic can be blended in. This system is great for home recordings too!
The Trinity Preamp allows for individual sound adjustment of mic and pickup. It is built applying K&K’s “Silent-Filter-Technology” and our full size component philosophy. We use full size capacitors and other parts because we find they sound better that the miniature components in most of today’s competitors preamps. Outside accessible volume controls and internal adjustable gain/EQ controls with +/- 20 dB bass, midrange and treble filters (trimpots) for each individual channel make this little preamp extremely versatile and powerful.
