Also, the output voltage is higher, therefore no preamp is required in most practical situations.

CUSTOM  STRING  PICKUPS
Instruments with mobile bridge

Western and eastern musical instruments (TB38/Custom)
Custom pickup, according to customer specifications, is an interesting option for musicians, builders or restorers of musical instruments who wish to adapt a sensor in modern, ancient, medieval or baroque instruments. the only condition is that the bridge of the instrument can rise. To make a "custom pickup" model we need:

  1. A photo of the instrument.
  2. Dimensions of bridge legs.
  3. Length of the pickup cable to the output connector.

These pickups are made according to the characteristics of the bridge of the instrument.
