The Schatten MicroPre is a miniature preamp circuit designed for use with most passive piezo pickup sensors (pickup not included). Small and compact, this single channel buffer preamp is specifically designed for stringed instruments and can be placed in any control cavity or built into just about anything.
The MicroPre features clean, crisp sound amplification and an even, flat response. The preamp is powered by a standard 9-volt battery (not included). Includes preamp circuit only - does not include pickup, wiring, hardware, pots or jacks (uses Control Kit 1, available separately). Perfect for the musical instrument hobbyist, builder or luthier. Not for use with condenser microphones.
