New from JJB-ELECTRONICS comes the
Prestige-110 Ukulele Pickup System!
We have custom built many of these for our customers over the
years. The positive response from them has been nothing short
of overwhelming! We decided that it is about time that we added
it to the standard lineup.
These are built using very high quality 20mm piezo's, which is
what we have found to be the best suited for a Ukulele. These
can be used with or without a preamp with fantastic results.
This system utilizes a single piezo configuration for a crisp
sound. Due to the small scale of a Ukulele, a single piezo
configuration like this one is more than sufficient to pick up the
full range of the instrument. If you are shopping for a pickup for
your baritone ukulele, you might consider our Prestige-220
system due to the larger scale of this instrument.
These special surface transducers are under less pressure than
under saddle pickups thus decreasing the likelihood of them
transmitting a percussive or harsh sound. The piezo is designed
to pick up the resonance 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 pickup configuration is offered in several high end
instruments. All of our products feature quality components and
construction. These utilize a nickel plated premium ¼ endpin
jack that is of equal quality to those manufactured by Switchcraft.
These, like all of our systems, can be installed in about 15
minutes! The single piezo configuration is a very straight-
forward and easy to install system. They are a very simple and
inexpensive means of turning your acoustic instruments in to
acoustic electric. Please don’t let the price fool you!
