This week we’re introducing the new Schatten Design pickups. Today it’s the Autoharp.
The new AD-02 is a powerful, low profile pickup that was specifically designed for the autoharp. The sensor fits under the strings on most autoharps and attaches quickly and easily to the instrument using the double sided tape supplied with each pickup.
The output jack can be mounted in a number of locations on the instrument depending upon the player’s preference. The pickup is non-invasive and may be easily installed without damaging the instrument.
The AD-02 is only 3/16″ (4.75mm) thick. On most autoharps the pickup sensor can be mounted on the soundboard of the instrument right under the strings as there is normally enough clearance. It may be mounted on the underside of the top or on the inside back or outside back of the instrument depending upon access and preference.
The pickup comes complete and ready to use. It is prewired to a 1/4″ output jack that is easily mounted near the edge of the soundboard with two tiny screws.
