Award Winning Acoustic Guitar Piezo Transducer Pickup System for Steel String Guitar
The full range of K&K Sound System pickups, mic and preamps is available via sonicwavefactory eBay store - call 0419 217 067 if you have any questions!
The Pure Mini is a passive system for steel string guitar, with three pickup heads and an endpin jack. It is a transducer system only and removes the need for a pre-amp / battery or on-board electronics. Don't be fooled by the sound of some competitors' thin sounding passive systems – the Pure Systems are definitely different. They sound full and rich and have sufficient output to drive most amps and PA systems directly!

The Pure Mini pickup is recommended for all acoustic guitars as a first choice. Direct installation with special glue provided is recommended for optimum performance, or if you prefer to install using the provided removable tape, we suggest to use in conjunction with the award winning K&K Pure Preamp, also available through the sonicwavefactory eBay store.
This pickup system will fit ANY steel string acoustic guitar! It features super balanced, flat sound transmission, warm woody tone without any quack and superior dynamic range all over the guitar's frequency spectrum. This pickup won the silver medal in the 2006 worldwide readers' poll of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Gold for the players’ choice award in the Acoustic Guitar magazine in 2008!
Customers say the Pure Mini's output is louder than any other passive pickup on the market!
Advantages for Pure pickups compared to undersaddle pickups
The special Pure surface transducers transmit a significant portion of the soundboard because they are not as close to the strings as an undersaddle pickup. An undersaddle pickup mostly amplifies the sound of the guitar strings (i.e. There will not be much difference between a $50 or $5,000 guitar after plugging it in!!). Each of the three transducers on the Pure Mini listen to the sound from your soundboard; the transducer elements are not under pressure and therefore do NOT sound percussive or harsh, regardless of how hard or soft you play. The Pure Mini reproduces all strings nicely balanced; undersaddle pickups often have problems with string-to-string balance. Unlike undersaddle pickups which passively often sound thin and trebled-only, the passive Pure Mini puts out a nicely balanced, warm, full range signal.
Disadvantages of undersaddle pickups:
- Hard, percussive tone, because it is under high pressure
- Picks up mostly strings and hardly any sound from the soundboard
- Chance of unbalanced individual string-loudness can result in work-intensive balancing procedure
- Needs special preamp to compensate for the hard sound
