K&K Piezo-Electric Contact Pickup - Hot Spot
K&K Piezo-Electric Contact Pickup - Hot Spot

Our Price: $35.00

Quantity in Stock:
Product Code: 110


Affordable, durable, excellent-sounding ready-to-use piezo pickup from K&K Sound, suitable for use on almost any instrument with a vibrating surface you can attach it to. The Hot Spot ($34), is a single sensing element. If you need to use a dual sensing element we carry the Twin Spot ($60) The K&K Hot Spot pickup is the most affordable of ready-to-use all-purpose, musical-instrument-quality pickups you'll find. And, as a piezo-electric pickup goes, it sounds excellent. Experimental instrument makers have praised K&K pickups for their affordability, versatility and sound quality for years. They're versatile, they're quick and easy to mount, they're very small and unobtrusive. The frequency response is listed at 15Hz - 15,000Hz. The sensing elements are a half inch in diameter, very thin and very lightweight. The pickup comes with a foot of cable, wired to a quarter-inch audio jack. A clip for the jack, which can be mounted on the body of an instrument by screwing or double-sided adhesive tape, is supplied. There's also a small supply of double-sided adhesive tape for mounting the pickup. (If you run out after a few mountings and re-mountings, you can use any double-sided tape, or contact adhesive.) A brochure, brief but clear and to-the-point, is provided with each pickup, which includes mounting suggestions for different sorts of instruments. The Hot Spot has a single sensing element wired to a 1/4" jack. Piezo pickups benefit from having a local preamp in cases where the cable run from the pickup will be a long one. We sell a preamp that is made by K&K: the K&K Pure Preamp. For more information on different types of pickups, their uses, and the pre-amp question, click here.
