The C-200 Concert Series Cello pickup offers an extraordinary level of performance, tone quality and accuracy for the cello.
The piezo-ceramic Concert Series pickups for violin, viola and cello are preinstalled in high-quality Despiau bridges to provide the ultimate performance — a precise and perfectly balanced tone from string to string.
In addition to an exceptionally clear and natural tonal response reveals the true character of the instrument. These pickups sound remarkably consistent every time they are played.
Transducer for violin, black-wrapped copper element, 1/4" clamp-on jack.
Designed by Ned Steinberger in collaboration with David Gage. A flexible element fits under the bridge foot so that it picks up sound from both the bridge and top plate. Produces a rich and powerful response that is acoustically true for both pizz and arco without adjusting controls. No preamp necessary. Easy installation-just plug it in.
This violin pickup is a miniature vibration sensor cast directly into a Superieur Despiau “Two Tree” maple bridge for maximum sensitivity and signal transfer. As an integral part of the bridge, it effortlessly captures the instrument’s inherent dynamics. Furthermore, its selective admittance pattern is aligned so that the signal is generated as the bridge moves in a left-right motion (in response to the string vibrations). The pickup also rejects any impulse directed to the plane of the bridge- minimizing annoying finger squeaks, body noise and feedback. An external preamp is recommended.
The same pickup element as the V-100, the V-200 employs a Carpenter-style, 1/4" output jack which mounts on the side of the instrument with chinrest-style hardware. An impedance-matching preamp is recommended, but not required. Easy installation with no alteration.
Tuning and rhythm training are indispensable for brass band or orchestral practice. In addition to letting you use the tuner and metronome simultaneously, the TM-60 features a display that’s approximately 1.3 times larger than the previous model (the TM-50), allowing easy viewing even when the unit is placed on your music stand, and also allowing the tuner and metronome functions to both be viewed simultaneously.
No longer will you have to switch between functions; you’ll be able to use practicing techniques that are idiomatic to orchestral instruments, such as keeping a consistent pitch over the course of a long note while varying the tone to add vibrato in time with the tempo, or checking the pitch of chords while using the metronome.
The enlarged display is backlit. You can adjust the brightness in two levels, soft or auto, ensuring stress-free tuning even when you’re on a dimly lit stage or in an orchestra pit.
The circuitry has been redesigned to achieve a battery life of 130 hours, approximately double that of the previous TM-50 model (tuner in use, backlight off). There’s no need to worry about the remaining battery life even during extended practices or performances.
