    6" Pvdf film pickup. I made this pickup for a project EUB i was trying to build. The pickup worked great but the bass didnt.
    (I was spending so much money I figure i will just save for a BSX!)
    This pickup Is fully shielded and wired to a 1/4 jack with highest quality mogami cable. It can mount to the tailpiece with a cable clamp (included) exactly like a realist or revoloution.
    Mounts beneath both bridge feet.

    The tone is similar to a realist output similar to a revoloution solo. Make sure the feet match to the body with no gaps.
    may ride on thin gasket cork alternately.
    I did try this on my Kay and got a very woody dark sound.
    It is hard to position though .
    I worked best in this situation with an external preamp into my
    iamp 500 wizzy combo
    enjoy the experiment. 20 +5$ shipping

    Can this film be cut/worked? It may be a bit oversized for a Palatino (@ 4 inches). And what width is the strip?
