Mounting

Mounting the Wilson Pickup for cello

The Wilson Pickups are mounted directly in the bridge only 8 mm below the strings, where they pick up a fine balance between the strings and the signal from the body. The hole position is optional but our recommendations are specified with each pickup set.

Each Wilson Pickup is delivered with detailed and easy-to-follow mounting instructions. It is, however, recommended that a skilled violin maker mount the Pickup.

A drill and a reamer (to make the hole precise in diameter) is included to prepare the holes in the bridge precisely for the Pickups. A bench-drillingmachine is recommended to drill the holes in the bridge to obtain maximum precision. The Pickups might otherwise sit loose in the holes and therefore not having prober contact to amplify the sound perfectly.
