Today we’re highlighting another new product; this time for Violins or Violas.
As with the gypsy guitar pickup we featured last week, the V-03 pickup has the new Neo-Jack series output jack. The Neo-Jack, with a standard 1/4″ output jack, is held in place simply and securely by the violin’s own tail gut. The V-03 offers unparalleled reproduction, range and clarity of sound all wrapped up in a high quality Superieur Despiau B “two tree” maple bridge. For more details click here
For those of you who want a non-invasive pickup for Selmer or Maccaferri type Gypsy guitars – and didn’t want the bulk of the authentic Stimer pickup – we now have a solution; the Schatten S4 Pickup
The S-4 pickup for Selmer instruments combines a pair of S-4 sensors with the new, non-invasive, Neo-Jack ( a standard 1/4″ output jack) which mounts just behind the tailpiece using existing mounting screws. The two sensors adhere to the top of the guitar just behind the bridge and directly over the bracing for the bridge box. As a result, response and feedback rejection are both excellent. The Neo-Jack easily mounts just behind the tailpiece using two of the existing tailpiece mounting screws. Everything is prewired and ready to go. There are no holes to drill. All you’ll need is is a small phillips screwdriver to complete installation. Simples, eh?
Today we’re featuring the new HD-4 pickup for the Hammered Dulcimer from Schatten Design.
It features twin sensors and a neat little jack assembly; the new smaller, thinner, sensors fit easily under the strings of most hammered dulcimers. The sensors adhere to the soundboard with the supplied double sided tape. The jack assembly (which can store any excess lead wire from the sensors) mounts securely to the front of the instrument with 3M VHB tape. Mono or Stereo: An internal selector switch within the jack box allows you to choose between mono or stereo output.
