Schaller 723 Oyster External Guitar/Bass Pickup w/Cable boxed
Schaller 723 Oyster External Guitar/Bass Pickup w/Cable boxed. It is believed that this unit has never been used.
The Schaller Model 723 (10/84) Oyster Pickup is identical to the 721 and 722 internal mount Oyster pickups, but is intended for external mounting on the instrument. The Model 723 Oyster Pickup is a polished chrome piezo 'oyster' capsule with a chrome plated cover that is pre-wired to a standard 1/4" instrument cable of 10 feet length.
The Model 723 pickup is specifically designed for use on the outside of a guitar or acoustic bass, but can also be used on other stringed instruments with the pickup sensor is mounted directly to the outside surface of the instrument with an adhesive putty (included) - and when this runs out you could use Blu-Tac!
The Schaller Model 723 Oyster pickup is well suited for steel or nylon string acoustic guitar and bass, but can also be used on a wide variety of other stringed, hollow body instruments such as mandolin, lute, dulcimer, autoharp, oud, bouzouki, harp and others. Not suitable for use with banjos or other instruments with minimal body resonance. Sound reproduction, is extremely broadband with a powerful, lifelike sound , so further sound processing using corrective or active circuitry is unnecessary with most users finding the sweetspot sound by varying the pick up position on the soundboard.
Installation instructions are not included, but are available from the Schaller web site at www.schaller-electronics.com. . Made in Germany.
