We stock a range of components for the PiezoBarrel and assemble the kits to order. For the pickup kit without a mouthpiece, in the notes section at checkout please add the adapter for mounting that you would like or let us know what you intend to install the pickup in to ensure the correct fittings are supplied.
All kits include:
screwdriver for adjusting gain
1/4" to 3.5mm lead
Mouthpiece kits come with mouthpiece with preinstalled fitting. The stand alone 'Pickup Kit' will require installation of the adapter fittings. This involves drilling the mouthpiece or neck at the location of installation and soldering or gluing the fittings. We can install for you for $35.
The PiezoBarrel P9 was developed for trumpet in collaboration with Master Trumpeter, Schilke Artist and Grammy Award Winning jazz musician Darren Barrett. The PiezoBarrel P9 pickup has a crisp warm sound and can be used for trumpet, high brass instruments and the Armenian Duduk. The PiezoBarrel P9 is available with fittings to be soldered onto a brass mouthpiece shank (or elsewhere on the instrument), and may be supplied with a low cost mouthpiece (standard sizes 3C, 5C, 7C) that has been fitted with a brass adapter ready to use. You can use the P9 to drive effects or just to get a natural trumpet sound without the problems of feedback and spill from other instruments.
