Schatten M-05 Series Mandolin Pickups Stick-On Pickup Attaches To The Existing Adjustable Mandolin Bridge
The new M-05 Series of mandolin pickups for adjustable bridged instruments allows you add a pickup system to your mandolin without having to change your bridge or make any invasive changes to your instrument. Featuring Schatten's new MVC jack assemblies (which simply attach to the underside of the existing tailpiece), the M-05's offer a real alternative to pickups that require bridge replacement.
- Ease of installation, the pickup adheres to the bridge with VHB foam tape.
- The jack assembly, available with or without a volume control simply adheres to the               underside of the tailpiece.
- Clean, clear sound reproduction.
This pickup has been designed to operate properly and sound terrific without the use of a preamp when plugged into any 'normal' amp (guitar amp, bass amp, etc.). If you require the added ability to be able to plug directly into a P.A. or mixer then you may wish to add one of Schatten's Preamp/DI units to your pickup system.

The jack assembly, which nestles in right next to the tail piece, is only a half an inch high and mounts to the tailpiece (not to the body) on most mandolins.
An exploded view of the jack mounting illustrates how the jack assembly attaches to the underside of the the tailpiece with 3M VHB foam tape.
The MVC jack assemblies, with Schatten's exclusive tailpiece mounting, is much more secure and less likely to damage an instrument than the older 'clamp-on' type of jack assembly. The underside of the jack assembly has a protective felt backing so as not to scratch the surface of the instrument.
Each pickup is hand built and tested by Schatten to ensure good sound. As well, each pickup is warranted for a period of two years from date of purchase to the original purchaser.
