The Piezo bridge combined with the patented esh-tronic delivers one of the best Piezo sounds available. Together with a studio direct out, it provides the professional player with a very flexible and perfect tone.

This special system is the perfect circuit for the active EMG pick ups and our USP, the finest Piezo-Design. The esh tronic is your “command”-knob to switch several circuits:

a)Direct Out. For studio use, a direct out for the EMG pickups which bypasses all the electronics.
b)Magnetic Pick ups only. In combination with the toggle switch knob you can think of it as a preset
c)Magnetic and Piezo Pick up. This combines the “best of both worlds”
d)Piezo only. This is an unbelievable deep sound, precise and clear with a full low end. Not typical of the usual “thin Piezo sound”!

The pick-up system is powered by one 9 volt battery. If you were to play 8 hours a day the battery would still last you a year due to the tiny amount of energy that it uses. It is clear that Esh basses are at the cutting edge of sound and design!
