|Disatisfied with other pick ups on the market, Dusty Strings took on the project of developing a pickup system specifically for their own harps that would give the kind of sound they knew was possible. The result was the Dusty Harp Pickup.
Using four carefully placed piezo pickup elements, the Dusty Harp Pickup achieves a clean, focused, natural and lush sound. The rich, full bass notes balance and blend with the clear, musical mids and high notes. It is simply the sound of the harp, only bigger. This pickup works at any volume level without feedback, which can be a concern with microphones when playing at high volumes.
The pickup is discreetly mounted inside the soundbox of the harp, invisible to the audience. A single jack mounted on the back of the harp makes for true plug and play ease of use. A single guitar cable allows you to plug your harp straight into any amplifier and many PA systems, with no need for a preamp box or complicated connections.
If you are playing in situations requiring very high volumes, you may want to add a preamplifier to the system. In addition to boosting your signal, it will give you direct control over your volume and tone if you are not near your amplifier. With some amplifiers, it will also sweeten and smooth out your sound.
The Dusty Strings Harp Pick Up can be supplied pre-fitted with new Dusty Strings harps (£340 for pre-installed Dusty Strings Harp Pick Up), or can be retro-fitted to Dusty Strings and most other harps.
