|Please note that these like to see an input
impedance of around 4Mohm or less.
1Mohm is ideal. Some preamps are rated
anywhere from 10 to 20 times too high.
Although we have had good luck with
compatibility, we cannot guarantee how
well they will work with every preamp on
the market. Please research the specs of
the preamp that you intend to connect this
to before ordering.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT PICKUP FOR YOUR ON-
BOARD PREAMP? ARE YOU PLANNING TO INSTALL A PREAMP
AND DO NOT WANT TO MODIFY YOUR BRIDGE TO ACCOMODATE
AND UNDER-SADDLE PICKUP? IF SO, THIS IS THE PERFECT
SYSTEM FOR YOU. UNDER-SADDLE PICKUPS CANNOT COMPARE
TO THE NATURAL SOUND REPRODUCTION THAT THESE OFFER!
These are built using very high quality 20mm piezo's. We can
now offer to substitute these for 15mm piezo's upon request.
Please email us after making your payment to specify that you
would like 15mm transducers. This configuration is designed for
guitars which do not provide enough space on the bridgeplate
to allow for the bigger sized piezo's. Both systems have a very
similar tone but the smaller system provides a little less output
than the bigger sized system. In many cases this slight
difference is negated by the higher resonance of a smaller
bridgeplate. These can be used with or without a preamp with
fantastic results. These are ideal if you desire a less defined
bass and mid-range output. They are designed for more
resonant guitars or ones with thinner soundboards.
This system utilizes a dual piezo configuration for a crisp sound.
The dual piezo configuration offers a few advantages over
single piezo systems. Having two piezo’s affords you the
opportunity to place them at two different points on the
soundboard thus resulting in an improved dynamic range due to
the fact that they transmit the resonation found at more than
one point. These special surface transducers are under less
pressure than under saddle pickups thus decreasing the
likelihood of them transmitting a percussive or harsh sound.
Each piezo is designed to pick up the resonation found in a
significant amount of the soundboard. These do not "fade" or
distort at high volume or with high-power systems. The highs
are crystal clear while the lows are what they should be, low!
They are very responsive. This particular system is fitted with a
premium 2.5mm plug for easy connectivity to your existing on-
board preamp. We have recently upgraded the build quality of
this system, thus the reason for the slight price increase. Not to
mention the ever-increasing costs associated with supplies and
It is the perfect replacement for your under-saddle pickup! This
pickup configuration is offered in several high end guitars. All
of our products feature quality components and construction.
These will work great in a variety of instruments. Mandolins,
ukulele’s, bass guitars, banjo’s, violins, dobro’s, dulcimers,
stomp boxes, etc. The possibilities are endless! These, like all of
our systems, can be installed in about 15 minutes! They are a
very simple and inexpensive means of turning your acoustic
instruments in to acoustic electric. Please don’t let the price
PLEASE NOTE, WE CANNOT CONFIRM THAT THESE WILL WORK
WITH WELL WITH EVERY PREAMP ON THE MARKET. THEY
"SHOULD", BUT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO KNOW THE
SPECIFICS OF EVERY PREAMP OUT THERE. THIS SYSTEM
SHOULD BE SEEN AS A DIY SOLUTION FOR UNDER-SADDLE PIEZO
