The Yamaha TransAcoustic guitar recreates an incredible experience without needing any external amplification or effects, just the guitar itself. With built-in reverb and chorus at your fingertips, it's the most inspiring, engaging acoustic guitar you'll ever play.
Three simple knobs let you adjust your amount of effects and the line out volume level. By keeping the controls small, it minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, reducing acoustic sound loss. Pressing the TA Switch for more than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function. When a cable is connected to the line out jack, the line out volume can be adjusted by rotating the TA/Line Out knob. The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.
An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.
The body is a solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides guitar based on the FG-series. Louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division and a newly-designed scalloped bracing pattern.
