Everything you need to electrify your acoustic!
We put the JSI Pickup Bundle together with the ultimate in sound quality and usability in mind. The venerable Realist Copperhead pickup is matched to the deceptively simple Fire-Eye Red-Eye Preamp through a Planet Waves Classic Series 10' cable. This bundle allows for quick and easy connections to PA systems, amplifiers or both!
- Realist Viola Pickup: The Realist Viola acoustic transducer was designed by Ned Steinberger in association with David Gage. A primary design goal was to create a transducer that would work equally well for pizzicato and arco through commonly used amplifiers. 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.
- Fire-Eye Red-Eye Preamp: The Red-Eye is an all analog, handmade, high input impedance DI and clean boost. Designed and improved over the course of several years to meet the needs of performing musicians, the Red-Eye is crafted from the highest quality components available. Engineered by an electronics engineer with over 50 years of professional experience, the Red-Eye design focuses on high fidelity, low noise and simple plug and play performance. This no frills precision approach to amplification offers a truly satisfying experience for musicians and their audience.
- Planet Waves Classic Series Instrument Cable: Special coaxial cable design provides extra-clean signal and low capacitance. Molded connectors provide extra protection over ordinary plugs.
