ELECRIC INSTRUMENTS, PICKUPS & AMPLIFIERS
 

Having for many years been requested to stock a range of Pickups and Electric Instruments, we have now included this in our range. We feel that younger players, in particular, need to be encouraged and to experiment. Peer pressure is a powerful motivational tool. Many new `pop' groups include string players, however amplification is usually required to perform in public. Therefore we will be stocking not only the instruments, and pickups, but also the appropriate amplification systems.
We also offer a service and repair facility for most amplifers.


We have equipped our trying out room with the best sound system available, so you can try out the various Instruments and Pickups, (unless they are a Luthier fit), prior to purchasing.

INSTRUMENTS
We are main distributors for `Bridge', `Gewa' and `Vivo' range of Electric Instruments, however we appreciate that there are many other instruments on the market, and as we feel that they match the high standards we impose, we will introduce them into our stocks. These instruments cover a wide range of prices and sound qualities. We can no longer offer the superb Carlo Giordano range as the UK importer has ceased trading, and we are not stocking Yamaha due to the excessive price vs quality seen by us over recent years. If you require a instrument that we do not usually stock, be assured that we will be able to source this, rapidly, and probably less expensively than elsewhere .

PICKUPS
We are aware that many pickups in the past have not been very good at displaying your instruments unique sound, but have just made it loud. To this end, we are continually reviewing the available range. We will only stock those that meet our discerning standard, but of course, if you have a specific requirement, we will be pleased to oblige. Whilst we endeavour to keep abreast of all of the new innovations, we are always pleased to listen to you, should you read or hear of a product that we should be considering. We also prefer recommending twin pickups, in the case of the cello & bass, as this gives a much more open and clear sound.

Baggs pickupLR BAGGS
This pickup is a miniature vibration transducer cast directly into an Aubert #7 Mirecourt maple bridge for maximum sensitivity and signal transfer. As an integral part of the bridge, it effortlessly captures the instrument's inherent dynamics. Furthermore, it's selective admittance pattern is aligned so that the signal is generated as the bridge moves in a left-right motion (in response to the string vibrations). The transducer also rejects any impulse directed to the plane of the bridge, minimizing annoying finger squeaks, body noise and feedback. Recommended Luthier fitment.
