The Schatten LP-15 Outsider external mount pickup is a new and revolutionary design for soundboard pickups. The LP-15 is an ultra slim, ultra light weight surface mount soundboard piezo pickup. Weight of the sensor is less than 2 grams (0.07 oz.). All LP-15's are fully RF shielded.
The LP-15 pickups are the smallest, thinnest, lightest, and lowest profile soundboard pickups available. Built using a new patent pending process, they are less than one sixteenth of an inch thick at only 0.049" (1.25mm). The pickup sensor is extremely light in weight (weighing less than 2 grams) and does not inhibit soundboard movement or vibration. The LP-15 is like a super utility pickup - you can use it on just about anything with a soundboard, such as a guitar, mandolin, violin, ukulele, etc.
The Schatten LP-15 Outsider is designed for external mounting, and includes an attached 10 foot cable with a 1/4" male plug, ready to plug directly into your amplifider. The LP-15 sensor attaches to the soundboard using either the included VHB double-sided adhesive tape for a permanent installation, or using the included acoustic putty for a non-permanent installation.
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.
