The McIntyre HD-98 Transducer Disc Hammered Dulcimer Pickup is an excellent pickup system for hammered dulcimers and autoharps. This is an external mount pickup that includes a standard 1/4" female jack.
The persistence of a customer led McIntyre to try designing a pickup for Hammered Dulcimer with unexpectedly beautiful results. This one comes pre-soldered and ready stick on the instrument. It also works well on an Autoharp.
The output of this pickup is sufficient to drive an amplifier directly in most cases. If you are plugging into a mixer board or PA system or need to run the signal through effects pedals or other equipment, you may need a preamp to increase the signal strength to match that equipment. Preamp not included.
