Get a kit which contains everything you need to mount your compact K&K, Schatten, LR Baggs, or other small beltpack preamp to your tailpiece - without any modifications to your valuable instrument! Having the preamp mounted to the bass makes setup a breeze - just plug and play! It also means that you have a volume control on your instrument - a big deal if you've ever had to lug the doghouse over to the amp to make adjustments.
Consisting of high-quality components, this kit includes complete, illustrated instructions and can be "installed" by most anyone - in less than 15 minutes. The included cables are top-shelf, made with high quality cable and connectors.
Please be sure to get the correct kit for your application; see the diagram in the photo array to help you to determine which version you need. If you're getting a 2-channel system like the Bass Master Pro, Bass Master Rockabilly Plus, or one of the Golden Trinity Mic sets, you need the STEREO/TRS version, which has the cable that allows for two separate channels to travel on a single cable. If you get the wrong kit, your pickup and preamp setup may not work properly. Details of the mounting kits are below.
MONO (1 CHANNEL, SINGLE PICKUP) Mount Kit
Use this kit for single-channel systems; for instance, the pickup of your choice and a K&K Power Pack or Pure Preamp. If you're using a Dual Channel Pro (not "ST" version) preamp with two individual pickups, use the "DUAL MONO" version, below. This kit includes one high-quality Mono (single channel) cable, foam isolation materials, and hook-and-loop strap to mount the preamp.
DUAL MONO (2 INPUT CHANNELS, 2 SINGLE PICKUPS) Mount Kit
Use this kit with two independent single-channel pickups plugged into the two separate input jacks on a Dual Channel Pro (not "ST" version) Preamp or similar; if you've created your own "Rockabilly" setup by combining the "clicky" pickup and the dual channel pro with a pickup you already have, this is the right way to go. You're basically getting the MONO KIT, above - plus an additional 12 inch cable for the second pickup. This kit includes 2 high-quality Mono (single channel) cables, foam isolation materials, and hook-and-loop strap to mount the preamp.
STEREO (2 CHANNEL, 2 PICKUP) Mount Kit
Use this mounting kit for the Two Channel K&K Pocket-Sized preamplifiers. This kit includes one high-quality 2-channel TRS (Tip/Ring/Sleeve) cable, foam isolation materials, and hook-and-loop strap for mounting a small 2-channel preamp to the tailpiece of your double bass. It also includes a full set of instructions. This kit is compatible with the Dual-Channel Pro ST preamp, as well as with the following pickup systems:
- Bass Master Pro
- Bass Master Rockabilly or Rockabilly PLUS
- Golden Trinity Upgrade System
- Golden Trinity with Bass Max
- Golden Trinity with Double Big Twin
