Highlander pickups ?

Discussion in 'Amps, Mics & Pickups [DB]' started by sixstringer506, Aug 20, 2003.


  1. I was wondering if anyone has tried or heard these pickups ? I did a search but nothing came up . Any info would be appreciated . http://www.highlanderpickups.com/
     
  2. I haven't tried the Bass Highlander yet. However I have an IP1 in my 6 string acoustic guitar and am very happy with it. At the Healdsburg guitar Festival this past weekend I heard several other guitars with them installed and they sounded very natural.

    I would think the bass one would sound good, but you never know.

  3. I have a Highlander IP1 built into my URB bridge. I'm very happy with the results but it's a tricky installation. I had it done by a bass shop over here in the Netherlands. I have a Musima URB with a rather thick bridge what seems to help when installing a pickup into the bridge.
    I mounted the (class a) preamp behind the tailpiece and it works great. I can't compare it with other piezo's 'cause this was my first system and I didn't tried out any other systems.
