PiezoBarrel® Wind Instrument Pickups

Microphones for your Wind or Brass Instruments

PiezoBarrel 'Wood':
Great for clarinet, bass clarinet, sax and brass

A high quality pickup for a variety of wind instruments. Designed to provide a warm tone, the 'Wood' offers high output, eliminates feedback and prevents spill without requiring external power or a preamplifier. Great for live performance and designed to take advantage of effect pedals. Fit it to your own instrument or get a cheap sax mouthpiece or clarinet barrel which has had a brass fitting installed for you. This pickup reproduces the natural sound of the instrument with remarkable clarity while minimising breath and mechanical noise.


PiezoBarrel P9:
Designed primarily for Trumpet

The PiezoBarrel P9 Trumpet pickup has a crisp bright sound and is designed for trumpet or other brass instruments where a bright sound is desired. The PiezoBarrel P9 is available with fittings to be soldered onto a brass mouthpiece or sax neck, or may be supplied with a low cost trumpet that has been fitted with a brass thread ready to use. You can use the P9 to drive effects or just to get a natural sound without the problems of feedback and spill from other instruments.


PiezoBarrel Pickups:

PiezoBarrel pickups can be used for a variety of wind instruments including small bore instruments such as the recorder and large bore instruments such as the Didgeridoo as well a range of low and high pitched brass and woodwind instruments. The design to produce a natural sound in a clarinet, trumpet or sax means that the pickup is also suited to bass instruments such as the bass clarinet, baritone sax and bass trombone.


PiezoBarrel Pickups:
Try them!

A pickup opens up the world of sound effects. The use of digital effect units can provide simple enhancements to the natural sound, such as reverb or echo as well as a variety of other modern sounds that multiply or divide the frequencies to produce harmonies or apply transformations and modulations to the waveform, or do loop recording. A trumpet or clarinet can become a midi instrument controlling a library of synthesized or sampled sounds. Musicians as performers have never had it so good - but at the same time, never has more been expected of them. With a pickup, you can deliver, and delight audiences - at volume!!!
