Hot Swap Demo
Unlimited Tone At Your Command
One guitar that can be hundreds of guitars? Impossible. Switch from two humbuckers to three single coil pickups in seconds? Impossible. A passive guitar that also runs actives at the same time? Impossible. Or is it?
Discovering new tones has always meant rewiring your guitar with new pickups, or buying a collection of guitars to have a collection of tones. With a Somnium you can have several guitars in one case, simply by adding pickup modules that switch out in seconds. Take any brand or type of pickup and install it yourself in minutes without soldering. Snap in pickups individually or in sets. Mix and match active and passive pickups together, neck or bridge, any combination, no tools needed and no unplugging from your amp. This kind of tonal versatility used to be impossible, but now it is at your fingertips.
Every pickup has its own unique voice. Give yourself the freedom to unleash your creativity, to easily experiment with pickups and discover the tones that inspire you. Music has no limits, so why should your guitar? Have it all in just one guitar: a Somnium.
Why is this guitar different from others?
You may have seen other guitars with pickup swapping capabilities that claim to be "perfected" or "unlimited". Not even close. Here is why we are so much more:
- No restriction on pickup size or shape. We don't have only two fixed-size holes as your only options. Use any 2 or 3 pickup combinations, humbuckers or single coils. We don't just claim to be unlimited, we really are.
- Mechanical latching system. We don't put magnets near your pickups which are magnetic in the first place. Our cartridges will not color your tone.
- Passive circuit that also runs active pickups. Together. Yes, mind blown.
- Install pickups yourself. You don't have to ship pickups to our factory for installation; do it yourself in just minutes and without soldering.
- Hot swap on-the-fly. Our direct-access modules snap in and out so smoothly, securely, quickly and quietly that you can change them out in the middle of a song if you wanted to, in 2 seconds flat. Really.
- Top quality USA materials and craftsmanship. We don't outsource our manufacturing or quality control to cheap-labor countries. We use hand-selected woods and metal, machined and hand-finished here in the USA for a professional guitar you will be proud to own and use for many years.
- But wait . . . there is more. Somnium has additional designs and capabilities that we will be revealing in 2020. If you think you're amazed now . . . just hold on!
