New Schatten Design Pickup

As we said previously, snuggled safely within our delivery from our good friends at Schatten Design were some new pickups.

11-new-ch-1The first one we’re featuring is the CH-1.  This new pickup is specifically designed for use on smaller bodied Celtic harps that have 28 strings or less.  It provides a very simple solution to the problem of quickly and easily adding a pickup to a harp; especially if you don’t want it attached permanently or have a number of harps and don’t want the expense of buying a pickup for each of them.

Our #ThrowbackThursday post is about the harp.

The harp is a stringed musical instrument which, at its most basic, has a number of individual strings running at an angle to its soundboard, which are plucked with the fingers.

26 - Egyptian HarpHarps have been known from ancient times across Asia, Africa, and Europe, and there are records dating back as early as 3500BC. The instrument had great popularity in Europe during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, from where it evolved into a wide variety of variants with new technologies

We don’t think our Schatten Design Acoustic Pickups would fit the Egyptian harp shown here but if you’re fortunate enough to have one we’re sure they’d come up with something for you.
