we are pleased to offer
Active pickup system:
Consists of three pickup elements inside the instrument, one for each bridge, each with it's own volume control.  There is a 4th knob which is the master instrument output.  All this outputs into a standard 1/4" guitar jack. 
Cost $295.00
Details:
9-volt battery housing: This is where you install the battery to power the internal preamp.  Battery life is 12,000 hours.
 
Volume 1: This controls the volume for the trompette bridge.
 
Volume 2:  Chanterelle volume (melody strings)
 
Volume 3:  Bourdons (low drones) volume
 
Master Volume: The first 3 volumes (above) are more like an onboard mixer.  Once you have your balance set up how you like it, you can use the master to control the overall volume to your amplifier.
