The darkly splendid Takamine 2012 Limited Edition acoustic-electric guitar has all the beauty, power and projection you'd expect from a guitar of its substantial size and limited edition Takamine design excellence. Its beautiful spreading-vine motif complements premium features including a high-grade spruce top with scalloped X bracing, solid rosewood back, rosewood sides and bridge, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, gold rosette and headstock logo, gold hardware, and onboard Palathetic pickup and CTP-2 CoolTube preamp for powerful onstage presence and performance.
After over two years of research and design time, Takamine has once again demonstrated their leadership in acoustic-electric guitar amplification technology.
The Cool Tube preamp introduced at the January 2004 NAMM show in Anaheim, California is the most significant development in onboard acoustic signal processing since Takamine presented the Acoustic DSP, the industrys first onboard digital acoustic guitar preamplifier in 1998. The Takamine Cool Tube preamp is an onboard acoustic-electric preamp that utilizes a 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube. The Cool Tube packs a huge amount of features and amazing tone into a compact package that fits neatly into Takamines SoundChoice docking port. The Cool Tube preamp joins a range of five distinctly different preamps that are all interchangeable, giving the Takamine player several great options to fit their personal style and taste.
The Cool Tube preamp gets its name from Takamines unique and new technology that runs the Tube at very low voltages, therefore the tube does not glow or produce high levels of heat. The tube actually runs at only two or three degrees above ambient, so there is no concern over the delicate tone woods being affected by radiant heat. With the Takamine Cool Tube preamp, the playing will be hot, the tone will be warm, and the tube always remains cool.
