At last you can enjoy the benefits of having a pickup installed in your vintage mandolin without having to worry about damage or loss of value. The Tapastring Vintage Jack replaces your endpin to make your instrument pickup ready -- NO DRILLING REQUIRED.
Tapastring has incorporated the highest quality stereo output jack available into a precision machined brass end pin. Now you can properly install pickups in your instrument without having to drill out the end pin hole or use some other less than ideal system, such as a stick on external jack. The Vintage Jack will fit most guitars, mandolins, and similar instruments equipped with taper fit end pins. The Vintage Jack is securely retained by the taper fit of the mating parts -- no adhesives required.
The Vintage Jack comes stereo wired* with 18" leads of fully shielded mil-spec coaxial cable and is ready to be hard wired to your pickups. A heavy duty right angle 1/8" to 1/4" plug is included (which must be soldered to your 1/4" instrument cable) to assure positive contact and secure connection for superior performance and reliability. Complete output cable assemblies are available as an option.
*Compatible with both mono and stereo pickup systems. The Vintage Jack is also wired to provide battery switching for active pickup systems.
