We offer a variety of pickups to help you project your sound in larger spaces or when playing with others. From passive pickups (no battery, no maintenance) to the most sophisticated multi-source device (wide spectrum of adjustments in volume, EQ and tonal quality), we have devices in a wide range of prices from brands like K&K, L.R. Baggs and Fishman. Installation is available by our experienced repair staff.
