Connect the Matrix Infinity VT to your amplifier or PA with a ¼-inch instrument cable. To conserve battery life, remove the instrument cable from the guitar when the system is not in use.
For the cleanest noise-free sound, set the volume as high as possible without causing your amp or mixer to distort.
This innovative one-knob tone control lets you choose between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (flat) on up to a “Scooped” tone with emphasized treble and bass and reduced midrange.
To make individual notes sound thicker and punchier, roll the Tone control to the right.
Try the Tone control in the middle position for fingerpicking, when you need just a bit of midrange cut.
Roll the Tone control all the way to the left for more depth and clarity to your sound, especially for hard strumming.
This switch selects how the pickup is voiced. Move the Voicing Switch away from the soundhole for bass boost and towards the soundhole for a fl at response.
Choose the setting that works for your instrument and your performance requirements. Here are some guidelines....
The boosted bass voicing (push switch away from soundhole) compliments solo guitarists and singers who accompany themselves, especially with smaller instruments.
The flat voicing (switch towards soundhole) cuts through the mix if you play in a band. It does a good job controlling boominess and low frequency feedback onstage, especially with full-size guitars.
A low battery LED is built into the preamp housing mounted inside the guitar. When the Battery LED lights steadily, it is time to change the battery. To replace the battery, remove the fabric battery bag that is mounted inside the guitar.
If you ship your guitar, we recommend you remove the battery as a precaution. Although unlikely, it is possible for the battery to jar loose inside the instrument during shipment.
