Schatten Designs M-05 Pro Mandolin/Mandola/Bouzouki Pickup with SJAplus Jack Assembly
The new M-05 Series of mandolin pickups for adjustable bridged instruments allows you add a pickup system to your mandolin without having to change your bridge or make any invasive changes to your instrument. Featuring our SJA series jack assemblies (which simply clamp to the side of the instrument), the M-05's offer a real alternative to pickups that require bridge replacement.
The M-05 sensor is small and light in weight. Measuring only 1/4" high by 1 1/2" in length it does not affect the acoustic sound of the instrument and will work on all 'normal' adjustable mandolin bridges. It will also operate properly on an Original Brekke bridge as well.
- Fits a wide range of mandolins The jack assemblies that come with the M-05 series mando pickups will fit mandolins from 1 5/8" to 2 7/16" thick (41.3 mm to 62.0 mm).
- Ease of installation The pickup adheres to the bridge with either the supplied putty (if you're planning on installing and removing the system on a constant basis) or the VHB foam tape (for a more permanent isntallation). The jack assembly, available with or without a volume control, simply clamps to the side of the instrument.
- 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 our Mini Pre belt clipable preamp to your pickup system.
