This sensor has been specially designed for use with Archtop-Maccaferri-Selmer guitars.
Based on Lydia technology, STAT-MACC is engineered with a high quality electrostatic microphone inside the transducer. Its cork and cotton fibre construction materials have been specially ed to give natural, high fidelity sound. Fixed between the soundboard and the bridge, it captures only the mechanical vibrations on the instrument and is also highly resistant to feedback.
STAT-MACC is easy to apply and remove without any risk of damage to the guitar.
STAT Series contact microphones are packaged with a choice of preamplifiers that give the player flexibility and control over a range of sound parameters. See STAT-MACC-SET, STAT-MACC-PRO, STAT-MACC-ROAD.
The STAT electrostatic microphone requires 10V phantom power. It works with our preamplifiers STAT PRE and Yellow series, as well as with Schertler amplifiers that are equipped with 10V phantom.

How it's made - Stat
The housing, which contains the transducer element, gets glued to the cork piece.
The cork piece transmits the vibrations from the bridge to the electrostatic sensor, which then transforms the mechanical vibrations into an electrical signal.
"All pickup products and preamps are manufactured in Mendrisio, Switzerland. Most of the components are produced in our in-house workshop facilities where we have two CNC tooling machines, turning lathes and milling machines, a laser cutter, pneumatic presses, casting devices and obviously a well equipped electronic laboratory.
