Pick-up the World, PUTW Double Bass Kit
The Pick-up the World Double Bass pickup system utilizes two PUTW elements for complete control over fundamentals, harmonics and dynamics. Credited with being one of the smoothest sounding pickups on the market for bowing, the system is also highly praised by jazz & bluegrass musicians.
The primary sensor is a thin polymer film pickup that is sized to fit perfectly and invisibly underneath the bass bridge foot.
A second, smaller sensor is attached to the face of the bridge and provides a completely adjustable range of dynamic sensitivity and detail. Moving this sensor closer to the strings gives more punch and articulation. Closer to the body enhances the fundamental tones and overtones.
The PUTW Double Bass pickup system comes prewired to a 1/4″ output jack that mounts with adhesive backed clips to the tailpiece or most ideal location. The installation is completely noninvasive.
Each pickup system is custom-made to the purchaser’s specifications and typically requires 3- 5 business days before the system is ready to ship.
