The Snake is Headway’s high-performance active pickup offering an uncannily natural sound and quality features at a budget price. Headway have managed to cut the cost of The Snake by virtue of revolutionary design. This system has a tiny but robust micro pre-amp which appeals to musician requiring acoustic pick-ups to have an absolute minimum possible impact on instruments, as The Snake is easier to fit where internal body access is difficult. Like the High-End pick-ups, ‘The Snake’ series have a class ‘A’ section pre-amp, pro-audio IC chip and instrument-specific fixed EQ. The SNAKE3 MANDO is tailored for Mandolin.
