Takamine's TK-40D preamp system
The GY93E New Yorker sports Takamine's TK-40D preamp, giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output — instantly. The TK-40D features a gain knob; a tuner; an active shelving EQ with bass, middle, and treble sliders; and a low battery indicator. The preamp is switched on by plugging a standard instrument cable into the endpin/strap-pin jack. Unplugging the cable turns the preamp off. The TK-40D is powered by a single 9-volt battery.
