The Schatten Dualie Outside'R is a versatile, general purpose two-sensor pickup that can be used on any instrument that has a soundboard, such as guitar, harp, dulcimer, etc. The Dualie Outside'R is designed for external use and includes a 10 foot attached cable that can be used to plug directly into your amplifier.
The "Dualie" is a twin element surface mount piezo pickup. It is approximately 3/8" thick, 1 inch wide, and 2 inches long -- about the size of a box of wooden matches. The pickup has two high quality, high output piezo sensors encased in a rugged and durable housing. It is light in weight (a couple of ounces), and does not inhibit top movement or vibration.
This pickup provides clean, clear sound reproduction, and has sufficient output to drive most amplifiers directly without a need for a preamp. If you are plugging into a mixer or PA system you may require a preamp to increase the signal strength to match that system. We recommend the Schatten Mini-Pre preamp for this pickup system.
