The K&K Sound Pure Mini with Volume is an award-winning passive three-sensor pickup system designed for steel string guitars. No battery, no onboard electronics, just the pure pickups. Don't be fooled by the sound of some competitors' "thin sounding" passive systems. The Pure Systems are definitely different. They sound full and rich and reproduce the natural acoustic sound of your guitar. This model includes a prewired soundhole mounted volume control, and a gold strap button instead of the standard chrome strap button.
The K&K Pure Mini is the perfect plug-and-play solution for the musician who wants a warm, full-range signal without worrying about cluttering up their instrument, adjusting onboard electronics, or having to remember to change the battery.
The highly sensitive Pure pickup sensors transmit a significant portion of the soundboard because of their position on the bridge plate inside the guitar. Each of the three sensors is designed to pick up a specific string pair, but also "listens" to the adjacent area around the bridge. The Pure pickups are not under pressure and therefore do NOT sound percussive or harsh. The Pure System reproduces all strings nicely balanced, a known problem with undersaddle pickups. Unlike undersaddle pickups which passively can sound thin and trebley, the passive Pure system puts out a nicely balanced, warm, full range signal.
This high output pickup can drive most amplifiers directly, without the need for a preamp. If you are plugging into a PA system or mixer board, you may require a preamp to increase the signal strength to match that system. We recommend the K&K Pure Preamp or the K&K Pure XLR Preamp, both of which are perfectly matched to the Pure pickups.
