Great sound

I bought 4 of these for 2 guitars a ukuelele and a Martin Back Packer.
I had the whole project done in about two hours. This was the very first time I did anything like this.
I must say I was very pleased at how easy they were to install. The sound quality is great! Over all this was well worth the cash that I invested.

Buen comienzo

Esta es la primera vez que instalo una pastilla en un Bouzuky y opté por una solución sencilla y muy económica, puesto que el cliente así lo deseaba.
La instalación resultó más sencilla de lo que esperaba y los resultados satisfactorios. Lo que viene a continuación es sonorizar un Hurdy-Gurdy o Zanfona, como la llamamos aquí. Ya os contaré!

Schatten Soundboard Transducer

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).

Piezo Ceramic Disc Transducer Review

I build and repair instruments and I am very happy with the performance of the Shatten Disc pickups. I buy them 3 at a time and have bought a dozen or more in the past few years. They are ideal for Dobro installations - I put them near the center of the Spider Bridge and they transmit the actual sound of the dobro better than an undersaddle transducer. They do not require a pre-amp and battery. For flat top guitars the secret is to place it near the Bass side in front of the bridge - not the treble side. I will soon be experimenting with a dual installation in one of my "shiny" guitars.

Schatten Transducer

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