“After carefully listening to the B-Band pickups,
I have to say that they are truly amazing, I’ve never
heard acoustic pickups sound so realistic.”

COMPANY
B-Band Ltd has been remarkably swift to
succeed in taking a place for itself in the
music transducer industry. Fundamental to
this success is the support and input of
many which we have the highest respect,
and also our mission to continually exceed
customers’ increasing expectations. BBand's team spirit focuses on innovation
and a commitment to continuous improvement of quality. We believe that to contribute to our customers’ success we have to
go beyond what they expect.
B-Band Ltd, known in the 1990’s as
EMF Acoustics Ltd, was founded in 1991.
The starting point of the company’s new
business in 1995 was the introduction of the
proprietary material EMFiT, the invention of
the well-known Finnish innovator Kari Kirjavainen. Lasse Räisänen, an associate of
Kari’s, and Lasse’s brother Heikki Räisänen,
founder and managing director of B-Band,
nurtured Kari’s idea - that EMFiT would
make an excellent transducer for acoustic
instruments. That idea was realized and
continues to be a source of new inspirations
for the accurate reproduction of acoustic
sound. EMFiT is used in every B-Band
transducer.
We care what the performer, luthier, dealer,
distributor and musical instrument manufacturer want. We know that they express
their industry not only in finances but, more
importantly, in artistic pursuit of a great
sounding quality product.
All at B-Band are honestly committed to
help you reach your audience, and customers, through quality and innovation.

XOM™
XOM (Cross-Over-Mix) is the next giant
step in B-Band's quest for the ultimate authentic acoustic tone.
Leading the market with the UST and
AST combination technology, and the
preamps that support this, B-Band takes
another step ahead to offer an exciting
new process that makes the amplified
acoustic guitar sound much more complex and more sonically accurate to the
actual acoustic tone.
The continuing spirit of innovation of
the B-Band research and development
team lead them to find a way to achieve
an even more realistic acoustic tone from
a dual transducer system by combining
the best aspects of each transducer into
one complete source. Through extensive
testing, the clever B-Band R&D discovered
that the UST and AST along with a crossover could achieve one really great acoustic sound.
The ideal process for authentic acoustic
reproduction comes from combining the
high frequencies of the AST and low frequencies of the UST. XOM uses the UST
and AST to sense the guitar sound from
two different locations making a sound
that is much more complete, true and
pure. In addition, a pan pot at the preamp
controls the mixing of the XOM tone with
a full range UST tone giving unlimited
possibilities.
The user will find XOM to be an amazingly flexible sound manager resulting in
an elegant transparent tone at any performance level.
XOM is now being presented in the new
A2.2 and A4.2 preamps.
"It's very natural, musical and dynamic."
Laurence Juber
UST
The B-Band UST* (Under Saddle Transducer) stands as the first transducer that unaccompanied sounds better than many pickup and microphone combinations. Instruments equipped with a B-Band UST have
enhanced countless productions, weather
it is in the studio or on stage live, by being
able to produce an unparalleled acoustic
tone quickly.
The UST is made of a very special patented electret film material exclusive only
to B-Band. The material is a permanently
charged film with microscopic gas bubbles
trapped inside and produces signal in a
completely different way than other mate
4
rials used for undersaddle pickups. As vibration is fed to the UST it passes without
multiplying the output signal but with a
very wide frequency response and dynamic
range resulting in a more natural reproduction of the instrument's sound with none
of the dynamic problems that other materials impart.
Even when attacking the strings very hard
the sound will remain clear and free of
synthetic tone. When picking softly all the
subtle dynamics and nuances of the performance will be revealed. Also the UST
has a natural immunity to feedback that enables performances in loud environments.
Physically the UST is ultra thin and flexible
making it easy to install usually without the
need for modifications to the saddle or slot.
This makes installation fast. Also because
the UST is so thin and very lightweight it
does not interfere with the signal passing
through to the body of the instrument retaining the instrument's original acoustic
sound. The construction of the UST is a
long consistent structure that ends with a
connector for easy plug-in fitting to the
preamp without soldering.
(* Patented, patents pending.)
AST
The B-Band AST* is genetically the same as
the UST: made of the same exclusive electret patented material but designed to be
used at the bridge plate or soundboard of
the instrument. AST retains all the attributes
including wide frequency response and dynamic range to capture all the detailed
acoustics of the instrument. It has all the
advantages of a microphone without the
negatives of feedback.
The AST is very thin and lightweight. Because of the size, flexibility and the special
two sided tape at the back, the AST it is very
easy to fit anywhere inside an instrument
without critical positioning. The construction of the AST is a long consistent structure
that ends with a connector for easy plug-in
fitting to the preamp without soldering.
Compatible with all B-Band preamps, the
AST can be used as a stand-alone source
or in combination with a UST or AG-MIC
with dual source B-Band preamps. AST can
be used with any acoustic instrument that
has good access to the interior of the instrument.

A6
The B-Band A6 was the first preamp to initiate a flexible design that used a UST and
AST bringing control over the sound from
the heart of a guitar. The A6 pristinely and
clearly captures the true character of a guitar's unique voice like no other system before it.
Similar to pro audio hardware the dual
inputs of the A6 has separate gain trims, at
the faceplate for easy access, to guarantee
wide dynamic range and enable signal
matching of the UST / AST combination. For
total sound control and ease of use smooth
slider controls are used at the 3-band EQ,
mix and master volume. The volume control
is at the leading edge of the faceplate and
the mix control is at a right angle to this for
easy use when not viewing.
Set aside from the from the master control section, for easier application, is the
Notch Depth and Notch Frequency rotary
controls and a phase switch for feedback
suppression, plus a low battery LED.
The A6 is an active preamp that is 9-volt
battery powered. A robust high quality prewired endpin jack handles the mono mix
output signal.
The A6 kit comes complete with all hardware for installing including the endpin jack
and a hold-tight battery holder. For quicker

A4.2
The B-Band A4.2 is a totally new sidemount preamp that shatters the barriers of
its predecessors. The select advanced design includes B-Band's radical new XOM
circuit with mix control and a great and
functional new look. The A4.2 has dual inputs for exclusive use with the combination
of B-Band UST and AST.
For the ultimate acoustic guitar mix the
A4.2 features the XOM* process mix control, a 3-band "graphic" EQ and master volume that are all of the rotary type. Input
gain controls for both the UST and AST are
also at the faceplate for easy adjustment.
The mono output is done through an included high-quality output jack. The
preamp is 9-volt battery powered. All hardware mounting and a hold-tight battery clip
are included. Installing the preamp is simple; only requiring the drilling of small holes
- no routing is necessary. Options of a
wood-like faceplate and side mount battery
box are available.
The B-Band XOM process at the A4.2
includes a mix control that is added before
the output of the signal. With the mix con-
trol panned fully clockwise the sound is only the UST. With the mix control fully counter-clockwise the sound is the XOM of the
UST and AST. Turning the mix control from
the UST side towards the XOM side, the
UST broad high frequencies gradually mixes in the broad high frequencies of the AST.
Therefore subtle mixes of XOM tone character can be made with the full range tone
of the UST.

"My clients have consistently raved about the B-Band systems I've installed, and have often
commented that the sound and personality of the instrument actually comes through amplified."
Mike Doolin,
Doolin Guitars
"These are great pickups. What more can I say? I have installed hundreds of pickups, of all
flavors, and the B-Bands are: the easiest installation, the best balance between strings, and
the individual tone of the instrument actually comes through the amp."

A2.2
A2
A1 / A1N-1470
The B-Band A2.2 with XOM* is the future
of acoustic sound reproduction design.
This all-new dual input / single output onboard preamp, for use with the UST and
AST combination of transducers, excels in
performance over other preamps of this
type. The A2.2 includes the XOM technique
with mix control to bring the best of the
UST and AST characters together resulting
in a sound that is true to the guitars unique
voice in any performance venue.
The A2.2 has a small remote control pad
with a volume and mix control that mounts
without modification at the inside edge of
a guitar's soundhole. The preamp is housed
in a lightweight all-metal box and can be
mounted inside the guitar at the side or
back and is powered with a 9-volt battery.
At the preamp there are two input gain trim
controls for both the UST and AST to match
input levels. The entire system installs easily
with very minor modifications- one small
drill hole each for the pickup and endpin
jack. For fast connections all components
plug in without soldering. All mounting
hardware, including a high quality endpin
jack and hold-tight battery clip, are supplied.
The B-Band A2 is a first class endpin
preamp: first class in sound and versatility. Even though the name has changed
over the years, the classic A2 has endured
and provided an important link between
artists and their audience.
The A2 is ultimate in flexible design for
those who want to keep their instrument
original with minimal intrusion. The dual
input / dual output preamp accepts the
B-Band ideal combination of the UST and
AST. This combination of transducers
coupled with the sophisticated electronics of the A2 reproduce all the instrument's nuances. Alternatively, input channel 1 will accept either the UST or AST.
Input channel 2 will accept an AST, or the
B-Band AG-MIC soundhole condenser
microphone or a magnetic pickup. Separate output channels, accessed with the
use of a standard stereo cable; give the
user control of the two sources at a mixer
or preamp.
Inside the A2 is a matrix of four DIPswitches that determine specialties. At
channel 1 there is a switch for a unique
contour filter for upper register tone enhancement. In the off position the frequency is flat. In the on position the LF
enhancer gives a mild boost to the highs.
At channel 2 there are DIP- switches to
turn on bias voltage for the AG-MIC, to
turn on a high-pass filter for microphone
feedback reduction and to lower the gain
from 24 dB down to 0 dB.
The A2 kit includes all mounting hardware, hold-tight battery clip and wire harness.
The A1 is the little brother of the classic BBand A2 preamp and is big on classic BBand sound. The single input A1 has a direct frequency response with 24 dB of gain
making a perfect fit with the B-Band UST
(not included). The 1470 AST can alternatively be fitted with the A1 if the user is
looking for a more flat response than that
of the A1N. Either way, the sound reproduction is amazingly pure and clear.
The B-Band A1N-1470 bundle includes
a special version of the A1 that has a slight
frequency notch of 6 decibels at 180 hertz
giving the system a smooth acoustic sound
at louder volume levels and is packaged
along with, and for use only, with the 1470
AST. This gives the user great tone at a
great value. The A1N-1470 can be used in
any acoustic guitar, or similar instrument,
that has good access to its interior.
Both preamps' 9-volt battery powered
electronics are mounted in a small tube that
is directly coupled with a high quality endpin jack making an all-in-one structure. The
structure is light in mass adding very little
weight to the instrument.
Both kits include all mounting hardware,
hold-tight battery clip and wire harness.

TECHNOLOGY WITH SPIRIT!
The outstanding sound reproduction
of the B-Band transducer is based
on the technology of a novel, worldwide-patented high-tech electret film
exclusive to B-Band and is manufactured in the spirit of true acoustic instrument aficionados.
This film is very different from piezo-electric films and transducers
and is entirely unique in the industry.
How is it different? We could go into
a long discussion about the technical
aspects, like the “microscopic lenslike gas bubbles”™ inside the permanently charged film but the most important difference is the sound.
Whereas piezo pickups tend to impart a sound of their own (often described as “quacky”or “plastic”), BBand transducers act in much the
same way a condenser microphone
does. This results in excellent reproduction of your acoustic guitar’s
unique sound.
