C. B. Gitty's "Cap-o-Tone" Standard - Piezo Pickup Harness for Cigar Box Guitars - Includes How-To Guide
A C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply Exclusive: the "Cap-o-Tone" pre-wired disk piezo harness for cigar box guitars and more! Includes a 2-page how-to-install guide written by C. B. Gitty himself, to help guide you through getting this great little harness installed in your instrument!
This is a great pre-wired piezo pickup, perfect for mounting in your cigar box guitar! The piezo disk is carefully mounted into the bottle cap with a cushioning adhesive, which helps insulates and helps tone down the high-end of the piezo disk to reduce feedback and give you a nice, mellow tone. The jack is a premium Neutrik long-shaft mono jack, great for getting through thicker cigar box walls (though some thinning on the inside of the box may be necessary with thicker-walled boxes). The circuit also includes a high-quality 500kOhms Bourns audio-taper volume potentiometer, so you can control the level of your output while playing. Each of the leads is a full one foot in length, so you'll have plenty of wire to put stuff where you want! The pickup comes with a piece of high-strength double-sided adhesive tape for mounting, though you may want to take additional steps to secure it if you think your CBG will be knocked around a lot.
Every harness is carefully tested in the C. B. Gitty shop before being packaged and shipped to you. There have been a lot of folks making bottlecap piezo pickup harnesses over the years... give ours a try and find out more and more CBG builders are saying: Make mine a Gitty!
