Soundboard Transducer pickup

This post is for 1 (one) new Transducer unit

This sale does not include instruments or

components shown for reference purposes.

Soundboard Transducer is covered by

Takamine Electronics One-Year Limited Warranty

and will be sent with warranty registration card.

This warranty is applicable only to the original purchaser, it is non-transferable.

Takamine's CTP-3, CTP-2, CTP-1 and CT4-DX pre-amps offer the control and flexibility of adding a second pickup in addition to the Takamine Palathetic pickup already factory installed in Takamine PRO-Series Guitars.

The Takamine Acoustic Soundboard Transducer is an excellent high-quality, hi-fidelty second pickup source.

Also view my listing for the Takamine TriAx 2 pickup, another awesome choice for enhanced tonality!

The Takamine Transducer pickup adds a whole new dimension to

the natural sound of famed and sought after Takamine electronics.

Will the Takamine Acoustic Soundboard

Transducer Pickup work on any brand of guitar?

Yes, although the Takamine Acoustic Soundboard Transducer Pickup was designed and voiced specifically for use with the Takamine Cool Tube and CT4-DX Preamps it can be installed on any instrument that has room on the Soundboard to mount the transducer.

It works with steel or nylon string instruments - ukulele, lute, oud, requinto etc.  – anything that has room on the soundboard to mount the transducer!

For best results avoid mounting it touching a brace, it still works but not as pristinely as it is capable of.

The Transducer will reference sound vibration energy on anything that vibrates so it can be also used with good result on unconventional instruments!

I have one on my Musical Hand Saw, an African Kalimba and even on a Hamster cage! (Look closely, the volume knob goes to “11”!)

The Takamine Acoustic Soundboard Transducer Pickup was designed to
faithfully reproduce the tone and gentle nuance's of your guitar at louder volume levels without excessive feedback problems - much louder than an internal microphone! 

Alternative techniques such as slapping, tapping or palm bumping the instrument are greatly enhanced! 

If you are a player that likes to incorporate innovative rhythm patterns by tapping or “bumping” on parts of your guitar you will love this pickup!

If you are a “looper” you will want to consider this pickup!

The Takamine Acoustic Soundboard Transducer Pickup mounts with apeel and stick” adhesive on to the guitars bridge plate inside the guitar underneath the saddle area.  This area of the soundboard offers the best of both the string and the wood energy directly at their source; the essential vibrations and resonance that give a guitar its characteristic and unique voice.

This direct vibration from the strings and saddle allows louder stage volumes, faithfully reproduced “alternative techniques” similar as if the instrument were traditionally mic'd externally but without the inherent problems of feedback and other instruments “bleeding” into the microphone in a live stage situation.


The transducer will be sent with a pre-wired 24" cable that terminates with a gold-plated RCA Male plug.

The Soundboard transducer pickup is about the size of 4 (four) stacked American quarter coins.


Mounting Instructions:

Peel off the plastic coating from the back of the transducer and press against the area you wish to mount the transducer in, holding it in place for a few seconds.

The adhesive is very strong you may want to do a couple “test” presses to make sure you get the exact spot you want, removing and re-sticking the transducer too many times will lessen the effectiveness of the adhesive.

It is also useful to move the transducer around on top of the instrument to find its sweet spot before the plastic adhesive backing is removed.

Transducer placement is very easy: If it sounds good it is good!”

As you may or may not know...

Since the early 70's KAMAN Music was the sole distributor of Takamine guitars in the U.S.A.

Recently ESP Guitars and Takamine Guitars announced a partnership in which Takamine

instruments will be distributed exclusively exclusively through ESP Guitars in the U.S.A.

Because of this new chapter in American Takamine history some printed materials have yet

to be revised for the new ESP distributorship. For this reason, this sale is for transducer only,

it does not come with a “POP” Point Of Purchase glamour box.

Your Soundboard Transducer will be sent very carefully and safely packaged.
