Paradis has made this kind of pickup in brass since 1984, but in 2011, Rolf made a big effort to creat a mold to make them smarter and smaller than brass could be. its an electrically conductive plastic so its perfectly shielded.
we send you 7 so you are more free to try one more hight and you end up with a spare part
a heavy bang on the string like when the guitar drops can break the piezo. to make it more solid, we would have to stiffen and use heavier material which would influence on sound.
the last 3 files in the galery were create by Rolf. the tube coming out under the pickup is obsolete, he did not add it himself in the end.
Height 4 options: 5.0…5.3mm, 5.0…6.0mm, 5.4…6.4mm, 5.8…6.8mm
corners com with 1,5mm radius so the slit can be routed precisely with a 3mm router
we deliver without groove, so if you add one, the hight becomes acordingly smaller. please do not apply heavy forces when creating the grove and do not make it deeper than 0.5mm
we deliver them unsanded as nominal over all size: 5.3, 6.0, 6.4 or 6.8
you can order all of the same hight or select several to create a curved string hight as its usual for western guitars
