Ebony Adjustable Bridge With Built In Full Range Pickup
...choosing a pickup for an arched top mando?
The M-02 Series will give you a clean, strong and wonderfully accurate sound. All of the M-02 pickups utilize the same high performance full length oversize piezo element built into a high quality adjustable ebony bridge and deliver great response and good tonal balance.
Superior volume and balance from string to string.
Cleaner, crisper sound reproduction than ever before.
Secure - The MVC jack assemblies that come with the M-02 Std and M-02 Pro give you a much more secure and reliable mounting for an output jack assembly than anything that clamps to the side of the instrument. The jack assembly, which nestles in right next to the tail piece, is only a half an inch high and mounts to the tailpiece (not to the body).
Ease of installation The jack assembly, available with or without a volume control simply adheres to the underside of the tailpiece.
Clean, clear sound reproduction 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.). As with any pickup, the sound can be further enhanced with an outboard preamp. If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a P.A. or mixer then you may wish to add either one of our new Mini Pre belt clipable preamps or one of our Preamp/DI units to your pickup system.
