Recognized Name in Sound
The Carlos brand is world-famous for its performance, accuracy, highest satisfying quality and reliability.
The Carlos pickup is a status symbol - the Rolls Royce of all acoustic guitar pickups. Your music will benefit from this move to a higher sound level.
“Carlos Juan manufactures the best example of tubular under-saddle-style pickup. The pickup sounds better then most, regardless of style … A vast improvement over most ...And it feeds back the least of our bunch.”
"Vintage Guitar Magazine", Nov. 2007
It's great (CP-1A VIP). None of that typical piezo effect.
It saved my life, it is the best thing that has ever happened.
Carlos Juan understands the sound of guitar from A to Z.
Oscar Castro Neves
Carlos and I share a passion for music, but a big passion for guitar, and he is continuously innovating products for guitarists. His life, like mine, is dedicated to music in general and the guitar in particular. We have much in common.
John Mclaughlin, Guitarist
As both an Artist and Artisan there are probably only a small handful of A-listers in the field of acoustic amplification, and Carlos Juan is probably the first name that would be quoted on that list by the A-list of professional acoustic guitarists.
David Knopfler, Founding Member, Dire Straits
Carlos Juan kennt sich aus in der Welt der Gitarren. Vielleicht wie kein zweiter. Sein Wissen über Gitarren ist schier unerschöpflich und seine Meinung ist nicht nur bei Sammlern und Investmentbankern gefragt.
I've been searching for that (amplified) guitar sound since I started playing live.
