Note: This is the very latest model of the HFN pickup that has the new ABS base. This replaces the original model that had a rosewood base. The new ABS base transfers more resonance from the soundboard to the pickup sensor, which provides increased clarity and detail, along with slightly higher output.
The Schatten HFN Active Under-bridge Guitar Pickup is a high quality piezo transducer with a prewired endpin jack preamp for internal installation on any acoustic guitar. This HFN pickup is designed for steel string guitars, and will work on both 6-string and 12-string guitars as well as tenor, parlor and baritone guitars.
"The sound of this new guitar pickup is as close to that of a good quality mic as you've ever heard from a guitar pickup..."
The Schatten HFN pickups give you a sound that is much more realistic than that of under-the-saddle pickups and is quite close to the sound of a good microphone. Along with being simple to install, the HFN's have excellent feedback rejection and good string-to-string balance. There is nothing artificial about the sound of the HFN and it does not have the usual compressed 'quackiness' inherent in most undersaddle pickup systems.
The HFN Active pickup system includes the high quality Player single channel preamp built right into the endpin jack. The Player preamp increases the signal strength and allows the HFN pickup to be plugged directly into any amp, mixer or PA system. A trim pot on the circuit board allows setting the output gain to match your system.
