OEM Ellipse VT User Guide (PDF: 60.88 kb)
Quick Start
1. Set the controls • Set Volume off. Set the Tone control to Flat.
Volume • For the cleanest signal, set the Volume knob as high as possible,
without causing distortion or feedback.
2. Plug in • Connect the Ellipse VT to your amplifier or PA with a ¼-inch
instrument cable.
3. Turn up • Raise the Volume and adjust the Tone control to your liking.
Tone • This innovative one-knob tone control lets you choose between a natural
sound with no EQ (Flat) on up to a “Scooped” tone with emphasized treble and
bass and reduced midrange.
• To make single notes sound thicker and punchier, move the Tone slider toward
the Flat position.
• Try the Tone slider in the middle position for fingerpicking, when you need just
a bit of midrange cut.
• Move the Tone slider all the way to the Scooped position for more depth and
clarity to your sound, especially for hard strumming.
Phase • Use the Phase switch to improve bass response at low volume and
suppress feedback at high volume.

Battery Replacement
Voicing Switch
This switch selects how the pickup is voiced. Move the Voicing Switch towards
the Volume slider for bass boost and towards the Tone slider for a flat response.
Choose the setting that works for your instrument and your performance requirements. Here are some guidelines:
When the battery is low you will hear distortion as you play through the Ellipse
system. Remove the strings to access the battery inside the guitar. Replace with a
fresh 9V alkaline battery.v
• The boosted bass voicing (switch towards the Volume slider) compliments solo guitarists and singers who accompany themselves, especially with smaller instruments.
We recommend that you remove the battery from its bag prior to shipping or airline travel. If loose inside the guitar, the battery may damage
the instrument.
• The flat voicing (switch towards the Tone slider) cuts through the mix if
you play in a band. It does a good job controlling boominess and low
frequency feedback onstage, especially with full-size guitars.
