Explanations of Pickup mechanism
The pick-up can be set both on grand and upright piano, between the soundboard and brace (grand) or backpost (upright).
- Contact tip (on the soundboard)
- Sensor (exchanging the vibration into electric signals)
- Base (to support sensor)
- Cable cord (to transmit the electric signals with high fidelity)
For further details, please refer to the next clauses.
Contact tipThis is like a half of globe that has small half-globe hollow in lower part connecting the upper part of the sensor part. It promises its thorough touch on the soundboard in any angles without scratching it, as well as maximum transmission of the vibration into the sensor part. The contact tip has a magnet inside that always keeps itself on the sensor part during the set-up operation.
SensorThis exchanges the vibration coming through the contact tip, into electric signals with high fidelity. In every 90 degrees angle, it has the output connectors, so that you can select the most convenient one to put the cable cord during the set-up operation. The sensor is thoroughly shielded to be suffered from least magnetic effects.
This is well protected not to add any electric signals by the self-vibration on the original sound signals during the transmission to the amplifier. As mentioned above, it is easy to connect it to the sensor since you can put it on any convenient output connector of the sensor part.
