|New from JJB-Electronics comes THE PRESTIGE 220!
We have custom built several systems for Taylor GS mini's, little Martins,
Martin backpackers, etc. The customer response from them has been
nothing short of incredible! For that reason, we decided to roll this
system out to our customers as a regular part of our lineup.
Our new line of pickups are constructed with the finest components
available today! In fact, they are the same components that are used by
the "big-box" companies that sell their systems for more than twice as
much! This system is the same exact configuration that is sold for
$130.00 by a very well known company. The latest release from our Artist
Series, The Prestige - 220.
These are built using very high quality 15mm piezo's. This configuration
is designed for smaller-scale instruments. These can be used with or
without a preamp with fantastic results.
It utilizes a double surface transducer design. This results in a very wide
frequency range and very natural reproduction of sound. The two-piezo
configuration offers a few advantages over single piezo systems. Having
two piezo’s affords you the opportunity to place them at two different
points on the soundboard thus resulting in an improved dynamic range
due to the fact that they transmit the resonation found at more than one
point. These special surface transducers are under less pressure than
under saddle pickups thus decreasing the likelihood of them
transmitting a percussive or harsh sound. Each piezo is designed to pick
up the resonation found in a significant amount of the soundboard.
These do not "fade" or distort at high volume or with high-power
systems. The highs are crystal clear while the lows are what they should
be, low! This pickup configuration is offered in several high end guitars.
All of our products feature quality components and construction. These
utilize a premium quality Switchcraft 1/4” nickel plated mono end-pin
jack.. This system will give you a very “clean” install for those who do not
want to compromise the integrity of their beloved instrument. The end-
pin jack also doubles as a strap button.
These will also work great in a variety of other small-scale instruments.
Mandolins, ukuleles, banjo’s, dulcimers, stomp boxes, etc. The
possibilities are endless! These, like all of our systems, can be installed
in about 15 minutes! They are a very simple and inexpensive means of
turning your acoustic instruments in to acoustic electric.

|The jack can be substituted with the
style that you see on the left. You can
add this option from the drop-down
menu above. This is recommended if you
are installing in a Taylor GS mini, or any
other guitar that already has a screw
mounted strap button. This will utilize
the same holes that the original strap
button is mounted with. Please keep in
mind that you will have to make the
solder connections with this jack. The
piezo leads will be prepped for you, and
you will be provided with installation
instructions. A 1" piece of heat-shrink
tube and enough solder to complete the
job will also be included.
