D-TAR stands for duncan | turner acoustic research, and marks the union of Seymour Duncan Pickups with noted luthier and acoustic amplification expert, Rick Turner. D-TAR has a full line-up of products, including pickups and both on-board and off-board electronics. All are geared toward the tone-minded acoustic musician. D-TAR's first consumer product is an off-board, two-channel mixer called Solstice.

The Solstice is a combination two channel preamp and mixer designed to handle a variety of inputs. If offers 1/4" and XLR connectors on both channels, plus you can use both channels together for stereo operation. The Solstice can boost a signal up to 24dB, and includes a phase reverse switch, mute switch, tuner output (not affected by the mute switch), and an effects loop for inserting external processing or just taking an independent output.
