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 'Wood' is a popular pickup for clarinet designed originally for the clarinet to provide a natural warm dark sound and add a little reinforcement to the chalumeau register. The PiezoBarrel 'Wood' offers high output, eliminates feedback and prevents spill without requiring external power or a preamplifier, and reproduces the natural sound of the clarinet with remarkable clarity while minimising breath and mechanical noise. It is great for live performance or recording and can also be plugged directly into effect pedals. You can purchase the PiezoBarrel 'Wood' with a clarinet barrel that has a brass adapter already installed, or you can use the supplied fittings to install the pickup on your own instrument. The 'Wood' is also suitable for brass instruments such as Trombone and Bass Clarinet, although the PiezoBarrel P7 is currently recommended for the Bass Clarinet.
