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).

piano pickup partsThe pick-up consists of the following parts:

  1. Contact tip (on the soundboard)
  2. Sensor (exchanging the vibration into electric signals)
  3. Base (to support sensor)
  4. Cable cord (to transmit the electric signals with high fidelity)

For further details, please refer to the next clauses.


Contact tip

This 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.

Sensor

This 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.

Cable cord

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.

Base

Five bases are prepared in different thickness so that you can select the most suitable one for the set-up space of your instrument. (cf. How to set it in the instrument)
