For the best possible balance and accuracy of sound reproduction the HD2 pickup for hammered dulcimers uses two separate transducer sensing units.The incredibly responsive "dual element system" provides unsurpassed response and a faithful, natural, sound quality. The pickup system mounts quickly and easily to the underside of the hammered dulcimer with supplied double sided tape.
Each transducer unit contains 2 separate piezos working in tandem to enhance sound quality and reduce the possibility of feedback. The units are strongly built and measure approximately 2 3/4" in length, 1 1/2" in width, and 1/2" in thickness.
Each transducer is prewired to a 10 foot shielded Mogami cable with a heavy duty 1/4" output plug which an be run stereo into 2 PA channels or into a single with the supplied 1/4" 'Y' adapter.
This pickup has been designed to operate properly and sound terrific without the use of a preamp when plugged into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc.). If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a P.A. or mixer then you may wish to add one of the Mini-Pre belt-clip preamps to your pickup system.
