The Schatten TC-STD pickup is designed specifically for tricone type resonator guitars and provides great sound quality with good anti-feedback characteristics. This model includes an external mount 1/4" MVC jack.
The TC pickup sensor installs easily on the tricone brace, using the supplied 3M VHB adhesive. The included MVC jack can be installed next to the tailpiece for easy access with the included 3M VHB adhesive or to the underside of the tailpiece using the included metal flange. The MVC jack is very low profile at 1/2" tall and compact at only 1-3/8" square. Soldering required.
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.
