Schaller Oyster Pickups External Piezo Transducer w/ Jack Plug, Chrome

  • £37.99
Loading...

The Schaller Oyster pickup gives your instrument a natural, warm, full sound instantly, without active switching or preamps.

The outstanding sound is achieved through the perfect interplay of three elements, the membrane, the piezo and a special high-quality plastic contact gel.

The oyster pickup is fixed to the underside of the guitar's soundboard either with double sided adhesive tape or alternatively, with removable adhesive pads which do not damage the surface of the instrument. You can loosen the pickup easily by turning the capsule from side to side (clockwise and anticlockwise). Any remaining self-adhesive material can easily be removed with a little guitar polish.

Thin adhesive tape is recommended for guitars that are quite resonant. If however, very loud signal strength is required, an adhesive silicone rubber pad is preferable. Instructions: Cut a 2cm piece of double sided adhesive silicone rubber pad or tape, remove the protective foil and stick it to the underside of the pickup, then stick the pickup onto the guitar. Finished!

With a high-quality 1/4" jack socket including cable strain relief, screw nozzle and strap button; professional quality, secure mounting and perfect shielding make the Oyster pickup all the more valuable!

Positioning the pickup

As the resonance and build of guitars varies, you need to find out the ideal positioning of the pickup on your instrument. In practice, the following three positioning options are the most common:

- Under the strings, in front of the bridge, between the second and the third treble string (B and G)

- Directly onto the treble side of the bridge

- Behind the bridge on the treble side

The Oyster pickup has a capacity of 74 pF with Scahller recommending a minimum output impedance of 1 to 5 MOhm.

Cable length: 32cm

Nice sturdy piezo pickup

It does the job well and feels robust. I attach it using the putty provided, which holds it onto the instrument securely. I was nervous about using the putty on my mandolin, but it seems only to leave a small residue on removal, which is easy to wipe off. The sound quality seems good too.
