The Heartsong Series is another Luna innovation, sparked by asking players what would facilitate their creative process. What Luna Guitars heard is that flashes of creativity do not always happen at opportune times - and inspiration is sometimes lost. Luna got to work with B-band to develop a "plug-and-play" system with a USB output that allows a player to capture their creativity on the fly.
What does the USB output do?
It's a record-on-the-spot solution compatible with any USB-supporting Apple or Windows laptop, smartphone, iPhone or iPad. This output gives you plug-and-play capability into your favorite recording software, so you can record your songs and ideas remotely directly into your device, using your favorite recording app ... simply plug in and go.
No external USB power, or powered USB bus/hub, is required. This solution gives you your standard guitar output jack, a 9V battery compartment, and a Type I USB jack. A USB Type I-to-Type II cable is also included for your convenience. (iPhone/iPad users will need the Apple Camera Connector kit to complete the connection from the Guitar to the iPhone/iPad's connector).
The Heartsong 12-String features a grand concert body with a select spruce top and mahogany back and sides paired with a mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard providing you with plenty of projection when you're not plugged in, and quailty tone whether you're going electric or not. When you are plugged in, the B-Band T35 preamp/tuner gives you a 3-band EQ, tuner and phase button for even more tonal control.
