Ukuleles come in all different shapes and sizes, but are almost always smaller instruments with delicate voicing and minimal projection. To capture the detail and warmth of a ukulele requires a very sensitive pickup system that will accurately reproduce mids and highs with clarity and precision, with enough output to drive an amplifier properly.
Most ukulele pickup systems have one or two contact sensors, or an undersaddle pickup. Contact sensors will provide warmth and woodiness, while an undersaddle pickup will typically provide more detail and string clarity. Both internally and externally mounted pickup systems are available, and some systems include built-in preamps to increase the output signal strength.
We have been selling ukulele pickups for many years and would be glad to help you find a pickup that will meet your needs. We have pickups for all types of ukes, including concert, tenor and soprano ukuleles.
