The Schatten UST-1 Undersaddle Guitar Pickup is a high quality, coaxial element undersaddle pickup designed for steel and nylon string acoustic guitars. The UST-1 pickup sensor is more than 3 inches long, and can be used with any string spacing. The UST-1 pickup sensor is not string position dependent and will provide proper string balance regardless of the string spacing. The unique polymer cable piezo element detects vibrations from all directions and provides a full, rich tone.
The UST-1 uses a high fidelity, low noise passive pickup that is specifically designed to be used with a preamp (not included). Without a preamp, the output from this pickup may be too low to be usable on some systems. You can use any quality external guitar preamp with this pickup such as the Schatten Mini-Pre, or you might consider using one of the Schatten UST-1A pickups that already include a built-in high quality endpin jack preamp.
