The Shadow SH965 is a professional active pickup system for Double Bass, producing a completely pure and natural sound. It has two under bridge pickups only that are only 0,46 mm thick, which it uses to pick up the vibrations of the strings and the body. It has a pre-amp with built in volume and tone control for mounting in front of the tailpiece. The preamp runs on a 3 Volt (2032) coin cell which lasts approximately for 1 year. The preamp’s output is a 6,3 mm (1/4 inch) jack socket. The measurements of the pickups that fit between the bridge feet and the table of the bass are 41mm x 21mm and the preamp measures 67mm x 30mm x 38mm.
Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, Nanoflex pickups suffer from absolutely no loss and no hum.
The volume and tone controls are mounted between the middle two strings. This includes the input connectors for the pickups, the 6.3 mm (1/4 inch) output jack socket, and the battery. Because of the low power consumption of the system, the 3V cell battery (2032) will last for approximately a year.
The installation of the Shadow SH965 to the double bass is pretty straight forward, with no drilling or filling necessary! Full installation instructions come with the pickup.
