THIS SYSTEM UTILIZES A DUAL TRANSDUCER PICKUP
CONFIGURATION FOR A MORE CRISP SOUND, AND A VOLUME
PLEASE NOTE; The standard cable lengths are 12 inches from
volume to jack, and 12 inches from volume to pickups. Please
contact us before ordering if you would need them adjusted to
suit your needs.
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 resonance 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 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. The on-board volume control gives
you added versatility. This pickup configuration is offered in
several high end guitars. All of our products feature quality
components and construction. These utilize a ¼ mono jack that
is of equal quality to those manufactured by Switchcraft. These
will work great in a variety of instruments. 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. But please don’t let the price
