This very innovative acoustic mandolin / viola pickup system incorporates a Kremona pickup element with the Mi-Si chargeable preamp embedded in a Carpenter style jack (which clamps to the edge of the instrument, with a maximum edge depth of 1-11/16"). The unique aspect of the preamp is that you power it up with the special Mi-Si charger which connects to a standard AC outlet (120/220 V) straight to the output jack. 60-seconds later (yes, just 1-minute) the preamp is fully charged for an effective playing time of 8 hours!! No more batteries. For mandolin, the bridge must be a traditional adjustable bridge and the element wedges between the base and the saddle piece. For viola the element inserts in the bridge wing. For both applications compression of the element is important so some trimming or shimming of the bridge may be needed. Professional installation recommended, especially for bridge alteration. Charger is included.
