Installed in all Tonedevil instruments are our custom made contact pickups. Using a ceramic disk element, the ground and positive leads are soldered and then re-inforced with insulative glue. The larger size of the element lends to its louder volume output allowing a wider spacing while maintaining balance across the banks of strings. It is passive, wired mono and works with about any preamp, mixer, or guitar amplifier.
MP-2 Mandolin Pickup $135.00
Tonedevil contact pickups are available for Violin and Mandolin. Using Beeswax as the mounting adhesive, the instruments entire soundboard is amplified with the piezo-electric elements. This achieves the best acoustic source signal for the pickup to “hear,” does not damage any lacquer, polyurethane, polyester, or oil based finishes, and can be easily removed and reinstalled.
FP-1 Violin Pickup $125.00
The violin pickup has the best plugged in sound compared to anything we’ve heard! The natural sound of the spruce top is what is ampilfied so the tone does not sound as “stringy” or electric.
