EurekaSound Announces eurekaSound Hole Pickup Mount

Installation requires no soldering or modification to the guitar

Pittsburgh, PA (August 29, 2014) -- EurekaSound LLC is proud to announce the release of the eurekaSound Hole Pickup Mount, an incredibly easy and affordable way for a musician to put a magnetic pickup into their acoustic guitar. Available in both black and white 3D printed plastic, theeurekaSound Hole Pickup Mount holds any Strat-sized pickup, fits into a standard 4" sized acoustic guitar sound hole, and includes both a volume control and a 1/4" jack that slides onto the guitar endpin for strain relief. And just like a pickup in an electric guitar, you can adjust the pickup height via the pickup height screws. Installation requires no soldering or modification to the guitar—just slide it in, plug in a 1/4" cable and start playing.

"Until now acoustic guitar players could choose between a few dozen acoustic pickups. The eurekaSound Hole Pickup Mount literally adds several hundred more pickup options for guitarists" said Dave Graham, co-founder of EurekaSound. "Any Strat-sized pickup, both single-coil & humbucker, are now are super easy to put in your acoustic."

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
