Adheres To The Soundboard...
Due to the size and construction of hammered dulcimers, we felt that the best balance and accuracy of sound reproduction could only be achieved by using two separate transducer sensing units.
As we did with our piano pickup system, we've taken our incredibly responsive "dual element system" and applied it to our hammered dulcimer pickup to give you unsurpassed response and faithful, natural sound quality.
The HD2 pickup system mounts quickly and easily to the underside of the hammered dulcimer with supplied double sided tape.
Each transducer unit contains 2 separate piezos working in tandem to enhance sound quality and reduce the possibility of feedback. The units are strongly built and measure approximately 2 3/4" in length, 1 1/2" in width, and 1/2" in thickness.
Each transducer is prewired to a 10 foot shielded Mogami cable with a heavy duty 1/4" output plug for stereo configurations. For Mono applications, a 1/4" 'Y' adapter is included.This pickup has been designed to operate properly and sound terrific without the use of a preamp when plugged into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc.).
If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a P.A. or mixer then you may wish to add one of our Preamp/DI units to your pickup system.
