TLD Line Driver

The Takamine Line Driver, TLD for short, is the system we choose to employ in our most special guitars. Designed to be installed unobtrusively inside the guitar, it requires no cutting into the high-value, exotic tone woods used in building our specialty shop guitars.

The TLD is a discreet line driver and buffer that sends a clean and noise free “active” signal to the output jack. While there is no on-board volume or tone control, the TLD is “pre-EQ’d” with a mild bass and treble boost and mid frequency cut for a very natural amplified acoustic tone.
