More information on the K&K Mandolin pickup
The Mandolin Twin is a dual-head retrofit mandolin transducer. It reproduces the original mandolin tone with very natural tone quality and it is highly feedback resistant. It is used by high end Mandolin builders like Clark Mandolins and by many professional players.
The Mandolin Twin Internal is a fully internal pickup system. Both the tranducers and the endpin-jack are mounted inside the mandolin. The transducers are attached with double-sided adhesive tape, providing a robust installation with minimum sound interference.
