  2. "They are powered by two lithium coin cell batteries that can be found nearly any place batteries are sold. Battery life is about 300 hours under normal use."

    -as in digital watch batteries?
    hmmm, conventional 9v batteries are expensive enough....
  3. Fishman (Fishperson?)'s Rare Earth line of magnetic pickups for acoustic instruments uses two of those little watch batteries.

    Yeah, explain that to me, too. My Pedulla has a slight dead spot at the classic 5th fret G string, and the Bart preamp doesn't help one bit.:rolleyes:

    i heard from testers that it also enabled them to play in time, and the built in compensator for poor taste and vapid cliche'-ism was a big hit with the jazz guys.

    It's a preamp. Maybe it has some type of built in compression-like gain stage.

    Also gives any 4-string the range of a 7. Ooohhh, that's gotta hurt.

    P.S. saw LotR, finally get your middle sig
