The Schatten AD-01 is a powerful, low profile pickup that was specially designed for the autoharp. This high output pickup will accurately capture the brilliance and depth of your autoharp/zither with clarity and detail.
The AD-01 is only 1/4" thick and may be mounted on the soundboard of the instrument right under the strings if there is enough clearance. It can also be mounted on the underside of the top or on the inside back or outside back of the instrument. A specially designed, removable double-sided adhesive is included for this purpose.
The pickup comes complete and ready to use. It is prewired to a 1/4" output jack that is easily mounted to the string anchor block with the supplied clip and small screw. You can also attach the jack with a hook-and-loop fastener (not included) if you prefer.
This passive pickup has been designed to operate properly and sound terrific without the use of a preamp when plugged into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc.) If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a PA system or mixer then you may need a preamp/DI to increase the signal strength to match that system.
Each pickup is hand built and tested in the Schatten Design workshop in Canada to ensure quality sound and construction, and is warranted for a period of two years from date of purchase.
