    One Alembic Precision pickup with the wiring harness - no soldering necessary - everything snaps together. Takes one 9 volt battery. Control knobs included. Good condition - sounds great. $260 shipped in the US. Will ship international with shipping cost to be determined.

    From the Alembic site:
    The Activator pickups and electronics systems feature a simple straightforward design that accurately reproduces the motion of the string, including your own subtle fingering techniques. Unlike traditional pickups where the coils are used to "voice" or color the sound, the Activator pickups serve only to translate the string motion into the corresponding electronic signals with the highest fidelity possible. The pickups reject magnetic hum and are completely sheilded with an expanded copper Faraday cage to eliminate noise.
    Ease of installation
    Activators are designed for easy installation. In fact, most models can be installed without woodworking or even soldering -- they simply plug together with friction-locked connectors. The contact surfaces are goldplated to ensure a long, reliable life.
    The heart of the system is the active electronics preamp/low-pass filter module. You can adjust the gain with a small trimpot located on the preamp board. The tone coloration is adjusted by the frequency control which tunes the low-pass filter section giving you a wide range of usable tonal effects.

    [​IMG]We selected this unique low-pass filter for our tone control through our own research that showed the low-pass filter to be the closest electronic equivalent to the waveforms of naturally resonating acoustic instruments. This yields a sound that is unlike any other pickup system on the market and lets you create music with these "natural" sounds.
