"Overall, I'm very pleased with the BUNDLE purchase. Kraft Music is VERY reliable. Service is top notch. The shipping went without a hitch. I received my piano at my Florida home exactly at the promised time and I was able to track every step of the shipment en route." - Michael, IL
"I want to thank you and Kraft for a great job. The delivery was on time and the man was helpful and pleasant. I have always been overly cautious of ordering things online that are so expensive, but you and your company has proven that this can be done! My granddaughter loves her new piano and I loved your service and product, too!" - Sissy, MA
The versatile dynamics and characteristically strong midrange of the classic orchestra-style model meet elegant styling, smooth playability and state-of-the-art onboard electronics in the new Takamine Pro Series P1M model. Great warmth, balance and harmonic richness resound from its X-braced solid cedar top and sapele back and sides. Other premium features include a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. The unique Takamine split-saddle bone bridge provides faultless intonation and excellent acoustic coupling to the top. The P1M also features chrome die-cast machine heads for superb tuning stability, a gloss natural-finish top on satin back and sides, and the highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.
The core element behind the amplified superiority of Takamine acoustic electric guitars is the proprietary Palathetic™ pickup.
Using six individually shielded piezo-electric elements, one for each string, the Palathetic™ pickup is not a just a UST (under saddle transducer). In fact, the Takamine design employs twelve times the element mass of the typical under saddle pickup. The six elements penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard, and bridge to make direct contact with the saddle, creating a sonic linkage with the string. The pickup casing is mechanically attached to the guitars top and bridge, creating a sonic linkage with the soundboard. The result of this design is a signal that possesses the articulation of an isolated string signal and the rich harmonic content delivered by the resonating soundboard for a full, complete and accurate acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels.
