Encased in lightweight tone wood, UK-1 ensures natural sounding amplification of your ukulele without modification to the instrument. Utilizing the tension of tuned strings, UK-1 installs safely and securely on the tie bar of most ukuleles. UK-1 comes complete with a detachable, easily replaceable cable. When not in use, UK-1 may be left in place with no detriment to the instrument's acoustic sound.
When changing strings or with an existing set loosened, the pickup is placed on the tie block with the input facing downward. Strings loop around the bridge and tie block, holding the in place as the strings are tuned to pitch. The supplied detachable mini‚ plug to cable can connect the ukulele to an amplifier, soundboard or recording device.
Ukulele players can now quickly and affordably amplify their instruments, without modifying or drilling any holes. The saddle mounted design also avoids the sometimes troubling task of installing a pickup through the uke's sound hole.
