The Schatten D4-STD Dulcimer pickup reproduces the natural acoustic sound of your instrument. Schatten Design created an outstanding pickup that combines great sound with simple and quick installation -- and best of all, for most installations you don't have to modify a thing on your dulcimer as no holes have to be drilled and no screws are used.
The Schatten D4-STD Dulcimer pickup mounts to the soundboard of any shape of dulcimer with a little bit of the included non-marring putty. A thin layer of the putty applied to the underside of the pickup attaches the piezo unit securely to the top of the instrument. The putty will not dry out and will not leave any residue on the instrument, and is completely removable.
The D4-STD comes complete with a prewired external mount 1/4" output jack assembly and is fully wired and ready to use. For most installations, the jack assembly mounts securely to the end block of the dulcimer with the supplied 3M VHB foam mounting tape so no holes need be drilled in the instrument.
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.
