The Schatten TC pickups are designed specifically for tricone type resonator guitars and provides great sound quality with good anti-feedback characteristics. This model includes an internal mount 1/4" chrome endpin jack.
The TC pickup sensor installs easily on the tricone brace, using the supplied 3M VHB adhesive. The included endpin jack can be installed permanently in the side or tailblock of the instrument (or in any 1/2" hole), or it can be attached to the guitar's existing strap button or tailpiece mounting screw using the included nylon jack holder. Soldering required, wire clips and instructions are included.
Players who will be plugging directly into a 'normal' guitar amp will find that they get great sound quality from the TC in passive form directly to most amplifiers, and no preamp should be required in this situation. You may need a preamp if you are plugging into a mixer board or PA system, or running the signal through effects pedals. We recommend the Schatten Mini-Pre belt-clip preamp for this pickup.
