Description

This is a pack of 10 shorter rod piezos originally intended for use with 4-string ukuleles, but they are also GREAT for cigar box guitars! These rod piezos have 4 separate piezo wafers, instead of the 6 that are found on standard guitar rod piezos, so they can be used on cigar box guitars, ukes and other instruments without having to be cut! These are just over two inches in length, 1/8" wide and roughly 3/16" tall. Originally intended to be mounted under the bone saddle on a ukulele, they also perform well if built into the bridge on a CBG.

Please note that these sorts of pickups always respond best if they are exposed to as much direct string pressure as possible, without actually serving as the saddle. So if you can route a slot in the top of your bridge, fit the rod piezo into it and then have some sort of saddle (like a brass rod) sit over top of it and be pressed directly down onto it by the string pressure, you'll be sure to get good results.

These pickups have a small 2.5mm plug on one end, which can easily be cut off so that the lead can be direct wired to a nut. There is a small insulated sire inside a braided outer mesh. The inside insulated wire is the positive and the braided outer mesh is the ground.

We also sell these in individually if you only need one or a couple.
