|ARTIST SERIES PRESTIGE-220
New from JJB-Electronics comes THE PRESTIGE 220
We have custom built several systems for all of the applications
mentioned above over the years. The customer response from
them has been nothing short of incredible! For that reason, we
decided to roll this system out to our customers as a regular
part of our lineup.
Our new line of pickups are constructed with the finest
components available today. In fact, they are the same
components that are used by other companies that sell their
systems for more than twice as much. This system is the same
exact configuration that is sold for $100.00 by a very well known
company. The latest release from our Artist Series, The Prestige
These are built using very high quality 20mm piezo's. The dual
20mm configuration is designed to pick up the full range in most
any acoustic stringed instrument. It utilizes a double surface
transducer design. This results in a very wide frequency range
and very natural reproduction of sound. The two-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! This pickup configuration is offered in
several high end guitars.
All of our products feature quality components and
construction. These utilize a premium quality Switchcraft 1/4”
nickel plated stereo end-pin jack. This system will give you a
very “clean” install for those who do not want to compromise
the integrity of their beloved instrument. The end-pin jack also
doubles as a strap button.
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.

The jack can be substituted with the style that you
see here. You can add this option from the
drop-down menu above. This is recommended if
you are installing in a Taylor GS mini, or any other
guitar that already has a screw mounted strap
button. This will utilize the same holes that the
original strap button is mounted with. Please keep
in mind that you will have to make the solder
connections with this jack. The piezo leads will be
prepped for you, and you will be provided with
installation instructions. A 1" piece of heat-shrink
tube and enough solder to complete the job will
also be included.

this jack. We recommend that you review them
before ordering to ensure that you are
comfortable with the required steps.

|Due to the ever-increasing popularity of our Prestige-220 being
installed in Mandolins, we have decided to include this very
useful installation tutorial. Rob DiStefano over at Cavalier
Pickups was kind enough to take the time to put this together. If
you are not familiar with Rob's work, you should be!
