NEW FROM JJB ELECTRONICS COMES "The Marcato" External
Violin Pickup System!
This system utilizes a dual, externally mounted piezo
configuration. No modifications to your valuable instrument are
needed to install this system!
These special surface transducers are under less pressure than
pickups that are mounted under the bridge feet, thus
decreasing the likelihood of them transmitting a percussive or
harsh sound. The piezo is designed to pick up the resonation
found in a significant amount of the instrument. 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. You will not believe the tone
and quality of sound that these are capable of!
All of our products feature quality components and
construction. These utilize an externally mounted Carpenter
Jack. The Carpenter Jack has become popular with many of
today's finest touring and session musicians. You will find the
same components on systems that cost up to four times as

top of your violin based on your preference. They can easily be
moved in a matter of seconds. These are so versatile that they
can be installed in about 1 minute! You can switch it from one
instrument to another in a matter of minutes by use of the
provided reusable adhesive putty. This putty will not harm the
finish of your valuable instrument. 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!
Please note that there may be a lead time of about 2-3 days once
you order is placed. We appreciate your patience and
