Acoustic

Enhances the natural sound of your acoustic guitar with its groundbreaking mic/blend pre-amp technology

The Mojotone Quiet Coil NC-2 is equipped with new, groundbreaking mic technology that puts this acoustic soundhole pickup into a league of its own when it comes to pure and natural acoustic guitar sound. Our mission was to combine our incredibly natural sounding “mic-voiced” and noise-canceling NC-1 magnetic pickup with the added sound enhancement of what a studio mic aimed right at the soundhole of your acoustic guitar would sound like; all within the pickup itself.

This high performance mic technology allows you to perfectly recreate the pure and full range sound of your acoustic guitar(strings and all) with the highest feedback and noise resistant microphone on the market. Comes wired with studio quality Mogami cable attached to a hard-wearing stereo Switchcraft end pin jack that can be permanently or temporarily installed. And best of all it's proudly made right here in the USA by Mojotone!

Installation Instructions

Clarity & Enhancement
Enhanced version of our NC-1 with an onboard microphone that blends in or out as much as you desire. The full-range microphone brings in all of the natural “air” and acoustic clarity that allows your unique acoustic guitar tone and playing style to pervade, with absolutely no compromise.

Balance & Perfection
Specifically designed to have perfect string balance and volume with normal bronze or phosphor bronze acoustic guitar strings. There’s no need for adjustable polepieces or special strings to compensate for unbalanced string volume! No more annoying loud high E and B strings with muddy low strings! 

Noise & Feedback Resistant
Noiseless preamp design makes for the quietest performance possible in the studio or live. The onboard microphone is also the most feedback resistant on the market!

Lightweight & Simple
Extremely lightweight and compact design allows for quick installation without modification, loosening strings, or adding unwanted mass to the soundhole of your guitar. To keep things simple, we permanently located the microphone for you (in the absolute perfect spot) so you won't have to deal with the trial and error of mic placement, or have the mic move during a performance! 

Ergonomic & Friendly
Rolled edges and low-profile mounting ears keep the pickup from getting in the way of your picking while the natural cork pads protect the most delicate nitrocellulose finishes from damage.

Power & Convenience
Active 6V preamp with over 250 playing hours powered by the most common lithium 2xCR2032 coin cell batteries (Included). All in a convenient slide out drawer for easy battery replacement.

Installation & Quality
Low capacitance and flexible Mogami cable pre-wired to a stereo Switchcraft USA end pin jack. This can be permanently installed; alternatively, we include a clip for your belt or strap for a non-permanent installation.

Resonator

by Slide

Seems like it should be a very good mic/coil pup combination, just doesn't work for a resonator where there is no large circular soundhole.

Acoustic Purist? Consider the Quiet Coil NC-2.

by Christopher Cozad - Cozad Guitars -

As a "boutique" builder of acoustic guitars I am expected to provide state-of-the-art solutions for the accurate amplified reproduction of a guitar's acoustic tone.

For the acoustic purist, the quest for "My guitar, only louder!" is seemingly never-ending, and usually involves piezo crystals and preamps.

In my experience, magnetic soundhole pickups, flexible and useful as they are, have not been able to replace the likes of a Barbera Transducer, James May Ultra Tonic, Trance Amulet M, etc. Even with heavy processing, "electric guitar" pickups are considered an accompaniment to, not a replacement for, high-end piezo solutions.

Until now, that is.

I recently purchased a Quiet Coil NC-2 and was so impressed with the results of my tests that I have begun recommending this pickup for consideration by my own discriminating acoustic guitar clients.

Very nicely done, MojoTone!
