The NR-02 series of pickups provide great sounding pickups that can be mounted quickly and easily to biscuit bridge, National style, resonator guitars.
The NR-02's in passive format are available with your choice of either a regular endpin jack fitting, the new Neo Jack option, or an MVC jack assembly with volume control.
The NR-02 sensor is small and light in weight. At only 1/8" high, 1/4" wide and 1 1/2"" in length, it does not affect the acoustic sound of the instrument. It is normally attached with 3M VHB mounting tape to the top of the biscuit.
The NR-02 Player requires some drilling in order to fit.
For less invasive options:
The NR-02 Neo installs quickly and simply to the back side of the tailpiece and uses the original strap button and screw. The lead wire from the NR-2 sensor is simply brought out of the cover plate to the jack. The Neo-Jack is designed to fit virtually all normal resonator guitar tailpieces without modification to the instrument.
The NR-02 Pro comes prewired and ready to install with a low profile MVC jack assembly and volume control that nestles in right next to the tailpiece. No drilling or modification to the instrument is needed.
For those players requiring an on board preamp, the NR-02A is the active version in the lineup combining the NR-02 sensor with an Artist endpin jack preamp that may be run from phantom power - so no battery need be installed. For those players who need or want to use a preamp with the NR-2 Std or Pro variants the Mini Pre belt-clipable outboard preamp offers a great solution..
The NR-02 is available in four different models:
NR-02 Player: with standard 1/4" endpin jack
NR-02 Neo: with Neo jack assembly
NR-02 Pro: with MVCplus jack assembly including volume control.
NR-02 A: with dual channel active preamp endpin jack.
