Product Highlights

Product Description

KNA’s MP-2 is low-profile, portable, bridge-mounted piezo pickup with volume control. Designed for mandolin, the MP-2 is engineered and handcrafted by KNA.

The innovative design allows an entirely external setup without any modifications to the instrument. The complete installation can be completed within a matter of minutes.

The amplified tone is balanced and natural, providing full frequencies from bass to treble registers of the mandolin.

KNA MP-2 Mandolin Piezo Pickup Features

  • Safe and Quick Install: Just mount the pickup jack housing onto the lower bout, just below the F-hole on your instrument's 1st (E) string pair side. Insert the wooden sensor into the bridge, between the base and the top, in the middle of the thumbwheels.
  • Onboard Volume Control: Players can control their output signal onstage or in the studio from the pickup-mounted volume knob.
  • Wood Housing and Sensor: The jack housing is encased in elegant and stylish ebony. The piezo sensor has a lightweight wooden casing to achieve maximum tonal sensitivity and transmission.
  • Natural Sound: MP-2 has a passive design that reproduces the instrument's natural sound with no need for a battery.
  • Protection for Your Instrument’s Finish: The adjustable clamps have protective cork at each point of contact to prevent damage to your instrument’s finish.
  • Compatible with All Types of Flat-Backed Mandolins: The pickup is designed to fit perfectly on A- and F- body style flat-backed mandolins with adjustable base-and-top style bridges.
