We have explored many pickups for our Five Course Mandocello. After years of experimentation, we have developed a shop made piezo that faithfully amplifies our instruments. Our recent instruments are furnished with our shop made piezo pick-ups.
We have also had success using the Baggs Imax for SP models and the Seymour Duncan active humbucker with microphone model SA-6 Mag Mic for our standard mandocellos. Whether you pick one of our recommendations or have something else in mind, we can install any pickup you request. Hand-wound shop pickups are also available.
Dammann Basses feature a variety of pickup options. Through commercially available pickups or our own custom handwound pickup options, we can create the sound you are looking for in our instruments.
