For a brief D-Tar Load 'N Lock WaveLength MP3 sample, check out our pickup comparisons page.
To install this pickup you must drill a larger-than-normal 7/8" hole at the endpin. Nearly all other pickups require a 1/2" hole. Please consider this before you order. The D-Tar Load 'N Lock WaveLength has a rich, robust and complex tone. Lows are fat and open. Midrange is warm and completely musical (no more scooping out the mids to save your tone). Highs are round and full - nothing plastic about it! And the best part - NO QUACK!
An easy-to-install alternative to the famous D-tar Timber-Line, the D-tar Load 'N Lock Wave-Length combines a thin, piezo transducer with an 18-volt, low-noise, high input impedance preamp. Wave-Length's unitary full length pickup accommodates virtually all 6-string spacings and is compatible with guitars using either 1/8" or 3/32" saddles, often with no modification to the saddle slot.
This new Load 'N Lock version comes with a new VT module that allows you to perform quick EQ adjustments on-the-fly via two small dials that peek out of the soundhole. To derive its 18 volts, the Wave-Length merely requires two standard "AA" batteries and a proprietary voltage power booster. The new, patent-pending, Load 'N Lock system allows quick and easy "AA" battery changes. Simply unscrew the endpin "collar," remove the old batteries, and pop in the new ones. A quarter turn of the collar is all you need to lock them in place.
