The McIntyre SRF-40 Acoustic Feather Resonator Pickup is specifically designed for Spider Bridge resonator guitars.
The SRF-40 is a feedback resistant pickup that is made of a responsive film which adds very little weight when mounted on the cone. The sound of the resonator is accurately reproduced by this pickup, making it the choice of many professionals, such as Jerry Douglas.
The output of this pickup is sufficient to drive an amplifier directly in most cases. If you are plugging into a mixer board or PA system or need to run the signal through effects pedals or other equipment, you may need a preamp to increase the signal strength to match that equipment. Preamp not included.
