The Schatten CJA series of jack assemblies is lower, lighter and smaller than any other violin/viola clamp-on jack available today. The CJA "Carpenter" style jack assembly takes a standard 1/4" plug so that you can use a normal guitar/instrument cable (not included). For use with a mandolin, longer adjuster barrels can be ordered separately.
Schatten Design has crafted a specially-designed composite body for the new CJA jack assembly. It's lighter and less intrusive in appearance than just about any other clamp-on jack on the market. Using the same clamping hardware found on a violin chinrest, the cork padded jack assembly attaches to your instrument securely and without damaging your instrument's finish.
The CJA jack assembly will fit all violins (4/4, 3/4 sizes) and most violas. The jack assembly will fit instruments from about 1-5/16" (33.4mm) thick to 2-1/8" (54mm) thick. For mandolins or larger violas, longer barrels are available separately to expand the maximum fitting thickness to about 2-7/16" (62mm).
Includes jack assembly only: does not include pickup, cable or instrument. Soldering required to attach your pickup to the CJA jack assembly. Can be wired for mono or stereo use (one or two pickups). Instructions are included.
