Mounting the Wilson C-pickup for cello.
Wilson C-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 to let a skilled violin maker mount the pickup.
A special drill bit and a reamer tool is included with each pickup set, to make the diameter of the holes in the bridge precise. A bench-drillingmachine is highly recommended to obtain maximum precision. The pickups might otherwise sit loose in the holes and therefore not having prober contact to amplify the sound correctly.
