L.R. Baggs Under-Bridge Dulcimer Pickup, 1 3/8" Wide

Item number 2851700, Regular price $165.00

This amazing L.R. Baggs dulcimer pickup outputs the clarity and sound you want from your mountain dulcimer. Our superb pickup is custom made for Folkcraft by the acoustic instrument pickup experts at the L.R. Baggs company. The pickup is 1/8 of an inch thick, and is just the right height to fit your Folkcraft dulcimer.
 
Width options are 1 3/8" and 1 1/2", choose the width to match your fingerboard.
 
To sand your pickup use a piece of fine-grit sandpaper, or a file, to gently round the top edges of your pickup. If you're replacing an existing bridge (saddle), try to copy the size and shape of the bridge you're removing from your dulcimer.
 
After the shape and height is where you want it, you'll then use a file or a fret saw to put shallow grooves in the top edge of your pickup (to provide proper side-to-side spacing for your strings).
 
The only part you'll need for your pickup's installation is a jack of some sort that will accept a cable that connects your dulcimer to your amplifier. We recommend the use of an endpin jack, which is sold separately. (Here's a link to the end pin jack we use on our instruments.)

When people think of heirloom-quality instruments, they think of Folkcraft.

Here's why: Folkcraft instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are hand crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.

“Handmade in the USA since 1968.” It's not only a slogan, but your assurance that you are playing the best folk instruments ever made. People choose Folkcraft for our deep-rooted tradition in quality, pure acoustic tone, and the simple joy that is brought from playing the instrument.

We put our heart and soul into every instrument we make – a technique that began nearly 50 years ago and is proudly maintained today. Go ahead and play one. We think you'll find your own heart and soul going into the music you create on a Folkcraft.

Folkcraft Instruments. Handmade. One at a time. For you.
