The Dome has a wonderful acoustic sound, but of course in situations where the guitar is played with other musicians amplification is needed. The Dome offers 2 choices of state-of-the-art amplification; RMC piezo pickups and an RMC pre-amp, or Barbera piezo pickup with or without Fishman pre-amp.
The RMC piezo’s have factory-matched outputs for even string sound, excellent synth tracking and dynamic response. The RMC Poly-Drive II is a 6 channel polyphonic preamp with 3-band equalizer and guitar/synth controls in a Direct Box format. http://www.rmcpickup.com/
Barbera Transducer Systems is a specialized company devoted to the development and production of the finest quality pickups available for acoustic guitar and other instruments. http://www.barberatransducers.com/
The pickup can be used plugged in directly into an acoustic guitar amplifier, or with external pre-amp.
