  • High Output, No Preamp Needed, No Batteries Required
  • Dual Sensor Internal Mount Pickup for Acoustic Guitar and Bass

  • Made in Germany

The Schaller Model 722 (10/83) 'Oyster' Dual Pickup System is similar to the 721 pickup, except with two sensors. The two sensor system provides a wider frequency response and can be used to balance the treble and bass characteristics of the instrument, depending on sensor placement. This system has very high output and does not need a preamp.

The Schaller Model 722 Oyster Pickup consists of two polished chrome piezo 'oyster' capsules that are pre-wired to a standard 1/4" input jack. The Model 722 Oyster Pickup is designed for use inside a guitar or acoustic bass, but can also be used in other strings instruments. The 722 pickup sensors are mounted on the inside surface of the soundboard with thin adhesive film (included). Sound reproduction, as with all Oyster models, is extremely broadband, so further sound processing is usually not necessary.

The Schaller Model 722 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.

Schaller's patented Oyster pickups provide powerful and lifelike sound reproduction of the instrument without the need for active circuitry and preamplification. The excellent sound reproduction is achieved through a unique combination of a specially designed membrane, a piezoelectric element and a plastic contact gel. All Oyster models attach with the included double-sided acoustic tape.

Includes pre-wired sensor and jack, adhesive discs for sensors. Installation instructions are not included, but are available from the Schaller web site at . Dimensions: 1" round sensor x 1/4" high; jack 1/2" x 1/2" x 1" with 1/4" threaded shaft, plus about 3/8" for lead wire terminals; sensor lead wires are about 15" long. Made in Germany.
