K&K Bass Max Pickup is a double bass transducer designed for a “quick wedge-mount” in one bridge wing.
Its unique sandwich design features a layered construction of two piezo crystals, one facing up and one down, which ensures an even transmission from the strings and from the body of the bridge with all its frequencies.
The K&K Bass Max is located vertically to the vibrations and therefore transmits at a high volume. We recommend Bass Max for musicians playing both arco and pizzicato styles, as it transmits a broader mid frequency range. This enables the musician to change his playing modes without having to adjust the amplifier. The connection jack is held in place by a special attachment clamp mounted at the A and D strings between string-holder and bridge.
One Bass Max will evenly pick up the tone range of the double bass. A big plus is the Bass Max’s superb compatibility with smaller bass combo amps.
