How is the Pure Floating Bridge Pickup installed?
The pickup is sandwiched between the feet of the floating bridge and the soundboard. This position allows the pickup to "hear" the soundboard as well as the bridge and strings in perfect balance.
If the jack is installed on the outside of the instrument, it can be installed with no (or minor) modifications to the bridge or instrument. If you prefer to install the pickup with an internally mounted jack, we recommend leaving this task to a professional.
With the outside mount, the jack is installed with the doublesided self-adhesive “dual-lock” fastener, which is factorymounted to the jack (see photo). This adhesive will not harm glossy lacquered finishes. The glue residues can be removed with WD40. With unlacquered finishes, we recommend applying some masking tape to the instrument first and then mounting the dual-lock to the masking tape. If possible, use the surface of the tailpiece or tailpiece holder.The Pure Floating Bridge Pickup System works well in passive mode. However, if a preamp is desired we recommend the K&K Pure Preamp or the Pure XLR Preamp.
I have been looking for a good way to amplify my Saga DG200 for years. It literally took less than 10 minutes to install. My other acoustics all need to go through my LR Baggs DI before the amp. Not the K&K, in fact it sounded much better without it. I used in for a gig the day it arrived and it performed flawlessly. It is very responsive to your dynamics. I had zero feedback issues, and through my '64 Princeton Reverb it nailed the tone I was looking for. If you are looking for super hi-fidelity use a mic, if you are looking for that lo-fi Django tone buy this!
