This pickup option can make the instrument infinitely louder. It is not a way to be heard in a group of acoustic instruments, since the sound is quite "electric", very pleasant but not compatible with unamplified instruments.
This option, only available with an instrument purchase, includes redoing all the bars with new felt. This is most applicable to rearranging chord bars on a Chromaharp 21 bar but may be used to ensure greater felting integrity on any instrument. This option would put the chord bars on par with any luthier instrument or be comparable to refurbished bars.
Professional grade zither wrench with machined, STAR socket that precisely and securely fits the tuning pins, both domestic and imported (size #4 Robinson's), except for the latest Korean instruments with the thicker and longer pins. Lacquered, oak handle.
Especially well suited to all autoharp applications, this compact, electronic tuner is an essential aid to getting your instrument in precise tuning for maximum enjoyment of you and your audiences. It features all common ways of displaying readings as well as Seiko\\\'s unique +- cents on the LCD display.
The add-on version of the electric pickup. This differs from a factory installed pickup in that the connector and controls are contained in a small box that mounts to the chord bar cover or the instrument body. Instructions included. Cord included.
All the parts needed to change an instrument to the Oscar Schmidt 21 chord system. Special order item. We do not maintain stock on this version of the kit. See the other item for the blank button version with uncut felt, usually in stock.
All the parts needed for the fine tuner assembly installation...base, cams, screws. The lockwashers and mounting screws included should be discarded as the wrong size or type. Our enhanced version includes the better hardware.
This wrench is machined rather than cheaply cast and fits standard autoharp/zither/harpsichord tuning pins (.198 inch thread diameter) precisely, given Robinson's #4 tips (.187 max). It is recommended fro an instrument without fine tuners or for a person who otherwise needs the extra leverage of the long hande.
Bars are felted all across in one piece but uncut for chords, and buttons are not labeled or yet glued to the bars. Use for custom configurations or spare parts. Color black. Holders fit imports only, otherwise needing a 1/8" spacer to raise the bars away from the strings.
