I read the extra long Piezo pickup thread in the BG forums. Lots of good info here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=131882&highlight=radio I went out and spent the 4 bucks to get a piezo buzzer and input jack from Radio shack. I wired it up, sliced a piece of cork from a wine bottle (to cushion the side with the wires and piezo element) and slid it into the wing of my bridge with the non piezo side against the wood of the bridge facing away from the body of the instrument. Lo and behold, going through my K&K 97 preamp it actually sounds good. In fact it sounds good enough that I am considering getting a small mixer or a mixer preamp to be able to use both my k&K Double Big Twin and my Radio Shack pickup. The sound isn't quite as defined defined in the high end as the Double Big Twin, but it also doesn't seem to pick up quite as much string noise, which for my use is the biggest drawback to the Double big Twin. Keep in mind that this is all on an Englehardt EC-1, so I am not sure if it would preform as well on a bass with a more complex sound. I am going to pick up the parts today and try and make a more heavy duty version, and possibly make a version that I can mount under the foot of my bridge. One question, does anybody know what kind of pot I should use for a passive volume control (before amplification or preamplification) for piezo pickups.?
