L.R. Baggs Under Bridge Dulcimer Pickup, 1 1/2" Wide

Item Number 2851701

Regular price $182.00

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 under bridge 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 mountain dulcimer 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 (also known as a "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 mountain dulcimer pickup (to provide proper side-to-side spacing for your strings).
The only part you'll need for your under bridge 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.)

L.R. Baggs 1 3/8” Under-Bridge Pickup

Yes indeed, I did install an L.R. Baggs 1 3/8” Under-Bridge Pickup into a new hourglass dulcimer I just finished. This is the 3rd such unit I have purchased from Folkcraft. As a non-dulcimer player (but working on it) and armature builder; I thought why not build a hybrid acoustic/electric dulcimer at a reasonable price. The L.R. Baggs Under-Bridge Pickup is just plain cool!

L R Baggs under the bridge pickup

I ordered and received an LR Baggs pickup for a dulcimer from Folkcraft but it had no instructions with it .I contacted Rich at Folkcraft and he called me and was very helpful in instructing me over the phone I give the pickup and the customer service 5 stars. George Handy
