Schaller Oyster S/S Piezo Acoustic Guitar Pickup



The Schaller Oyster has been a classic contact pickup for decades. With its compact size and low weight, it can be easily mounted on guitar tops for spontaneous gigs or permanently installed in the body of acoustic instruments. The new oyster has become a little bit slimmer and convinces thanks to the new piezo technology with an even more balanced sound. This makes it the perfect pickup system for guitars, basses, ukuleles, mandolins and other acoustic stringed instruments.
The Oyster shells can be mounted using the included double-sided adhesive pads. Therefore, for proper mounting/dismounting of the Oyster shell using foil in the body, and for mounting the end jack in the frame, it is always recommended to consult your local guitar builder or dealer for advice.

Piezo pickups are in principle suitable for all types of musical instruments. The sound depends very much on the mounting position. Patience is required in finding the right mounting position for a piezo pickup. Each player prefers his or her own “sweet spot”. Even the slightest change in the piezo’s position on the top or in the body will produce different sound results in bass, midrange, treble and volume levels.

Piezo transducers are not powerful signal sources due to their physical design, so they are usually sold in guitars with integrated preamps (preamp with equalizer) to compensate the signal loss due to long cable runs and to shape the sound. An additional preamp for acoustic instruments as a floor pedal or a powerful acoustic amplifier, are therefore preferable for optimal signal reproduction
