Richard McClish, the founder of RMC Pickup Company, created the string contacting Acoustic Gold saddle system with the objective of extracting more dynamics...and therefore more acoustically natural....response from his own guitars.
By sensing the strain on each individual string, the RMC sensor itself responds linearly to force variations. Plus by separating each string individually, the RMC system produces a highly localized soundspot...with perfect string-to-string balance.
Combined, these factors result in a unique pickup system with a strong signal, lots of dynamic headroom, exceptional balance, and significantly reduced acoustic feedback sensitivity.
The list of well-respected RMC guitar players is truly exceptional and includes:
California Guitar Trio
Please note that the RMC pickup is engineered to match with the RMC Poly-Drive preamps. These preamps buffer and filter each string to optimize the individual tone color and attack. Additionally they open the world of MIDI and synths.
