Product Details

Universal acoustic pickup! A popular basic piezo transducer with wide-range response, for the underside of a soundboard.

Works for a variety of instruments and installs easily with the supplied adhesive. The shielded cable is 18" long.

Includes the Fishman Switchjack: a stereo jack that can be used for mono, stereo, or mono with battery switching capabilities. Like all passive transducers, this pickup does not require a battery. The Switchjack™ tightens from outside the guitar, and accepts a standard 1/4" (6.35mm) plug. 1/2" (12.70mm) diameter mounting hole required. An impedance-matching preamp is recommended, but not required.

Schatten Soundboard Transducer

By Bob Schellhammer from Chattanooga, TN
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, July 01, 2011


My favorite guitar is this limited edition Takamine, which is a steel-string copy of a Bruno parlor guitar. I originally put a Sunrise magnetic pickup on it. The amplified sound was good, but it took away from the appearance. The heaviness of the pickup limited the vibration of the small top. The Schatten was the perfect solution for amplification. It did take 5-6 positionings to find the "sweet spot" (on the bass side of the bridge plate next to the 6th string). Other positions yielded certain resonant frequency bias rather then a flat response. Check out all fingerboard notes before committing installation. You can do this on the top before attaching inside. And, best of all, it it's very affordable! Last of all, make friends with the sound engineer: he/she can make you sound great (or not).

A great little pickup for the money. I have it in several guitars and mandolins. Good live and recorded sound.
