Intuitive Pickups is using cutting edge science to build the next generation acoustic pickup. We believe most acoustic pickups do not deliver acceptable tone. Our technology is built around digital algorithms designed to recreate what happens in a professional recording studio. The results are an incredibly transparent pickup system that really sounds just like your instrument would unampflified.
The Intuitive Pickup system starts with a soundhole pickup system containing an omnidirectional condenser microphone and a magnetic pickup. Organic cork is used to protect your guitar’s finish. The signals are routed to the standard ¼” TRS audio jack at the bottom of your guitar. We use a proprietary cable that routes multiple signals from your guitar to a digital stompbox/footpedal. This cable also contains an additional microphone for feedback cancellation, enabling you to perform with virtually no chance of feedback.
This is where the real magic happens. The three input signals are combined in a digital stompbox using our patented algorithm, delivering accurate tonality to your amplifier. The stompbox has a power switch, microphone kill switch (in the very unlikely event of feedback), a USB jack for downloading new algorithms, a 1/4" balanced audio out, and power jack. The stompbox has a black matte top with natural wood sides. Inside is our 16 core DSP chip, capable of a billion operations a second, delivering incedibley low latencies (<2 msec).
The Intuitive Pickup System brings your genuine sound to live amplification. Other, more expensive piezoelectric and magnetic sensors capture only about 30% of a guitar's sound compared to typical multi-mic recording studio setups. The Intuitive Pickups System captures up to 95% of a guitar's sound. This means your $2000+ Martin guitar will sound as great live as it does in a recording studio.
In addition to mitigating the risk of feedback, the Intuitive Pickup System dampens noises and disturbances from outside your guitar.
Intuitive Pickups is always improving by developing new algorithms for your system. When you buy the Intuitive Pickup System, you'll have exclusive access to our new offerings through your existing capatible hardware. We want to be the last pickup system you'll ever need.
Your satisfaction with the Intuitive Pickup System is our top priority. If, for any reason, you are unsatisfied with the product, send it back for a full refund within two months of purchasing with shipping on us, no questions asked. Every product also comes with a one-year warranty.

"It's amazing how close the sound is to a recording studio microphone. This technology is a total game changer for acoustic instrumentalists performing in live concert venues."- James B
"The tone is extremely seamless and slick. Sounds just like my guitar. This is the best amped sound I've ever heard."- Sam B
"Wow! I can't believe the difference in sound quality. It's especially noticeable when I compare it to my old system."- Jonathan S

While the Intuitive Pickup System is currently only for acoustic guitar, we plan on expanding the product for violins, cellos, pianos, and other acoustic instruments. The Intuitive Pickup System isn’t for electric guitar… silly!Can I find the Intuitive Pickup System at my local music store?
The Intuitive Pickup System is currently only available online. If you have a retail store you'd like to see this in, please feel free to send us an email letting us know.
We want your new pickup system to be as neat and effortless as possible. Musicians have enough to worry about! While you can use your digital stompbox/footpedal for your whole guitar collection, we recommend purchasing a separate soundhole pickup and cable for each guitar you plan on using live. This way you won’t have to deal with repeatedly taking out and reinstalling for each guitar.Why is it so darn affordable?
We can hardly believe it ourselves. While the Intuitive Pickup System is fundamentally superior to any other current acoustic amplification equipment, we’ve found the next-best competing products priced over $750.Will this make my guitar sound better than my current setup?
You betcha. Even the most expensive piezoelectric and magnetic sensors capture only about 30% of a guitar’s sound compared to the gold standard microphoned acoustic guitar. The Intuitive Pickup System captures up to 95% of a guitar’s sound. This means that your $2,000 Martin guitar will sound as great live as it does in a recording studio.
