The K&K Sound Hot Harmonica Pickup is a single-head piezo transducer, especially designed to amplify the harmonica.
Although the harmonica could be considered a wind instrument, which normally can't be easily amplified with pickups, the application of the Hot Harmonica renders impressing results. For the harmonica, a piezo transducer is an excellent method of transmission because the harmonica's sound is not exclusively defined by air vibration, but also by a certain amount of vibration of the instrument's body.
For smaller harmonicas, we suggest installation on the casing of the harmonica as shown in the picture. With this attachment method, finger tapping on the harmonica should be avoided since it would be amplified as well. With bigger harmonicas, an installation inside of the harmonica, directly on the reed block is advisable. With this installation, finger tapping noise is not a problem. The pickup is attached with super glue.
The K&K Hot Harmonica Pickup includes the pickup sensor prewired to an external mount RCA jack, installation adhesive and instructions. You will need an RCA to 1/4" cable or adapter (not included) to plug this pickup into your amplifier.
