Schatten Design is an innovative Canadian company that specialises in original handmade acoustic pickups. The company has a tailored pickup solution for acoustic and classical guitar, banjo, resonator, mandolin, violin, piano, bouzouki, folk instruments and everything in between. Schatten pickups are used by performers, luthiers, and manufacturers all around the world. The RB series offers you a bass pickup tailored to your playing style and requirements. Simple design, great sounding pickups, non-invasive and easy to install. Available in Active and Passive formats.
Specially designed for the Rock-A-Billy player the RB-2 series adds a second sensor and a pair of thumbwheel volume controls; both mount on the underside of the fingerboard giving a great slap sound to combine with the bass thud captured by the bridge pickup.
As with the RB-1 bass pickups the RB-2 is available in Passive (RB-2) and Active (RB-2A) configurations. The RB-2A includes a small preamp that mounts to the undersidfe of the tail-piece.
The Passive RB-2 passive Rock-A-Billy Upright Bass pickup will sound great when plugged straight into any decent bass amp.
The Active RB-2A model is designed for payers needing to plug directly into PA systems and prefer the convenience of an on-board preamp on their bass.
