    Comments about Kremona UK-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Ukulele:

    This pickup for amplifying the sound of any ukulele is reasonably priced, easy to install, and remarkably efficient in producing a sweet sound signal for an amplifier. Without altering the structure of the ukulele, without batteries, without hidden wiring, this pickup slips neatly between the strings at the bridge. It seems fragile with the cable plug hanging out where it could be smashed, and it picks up all touching or movement of the ukulele, so the cable is fastened to my ukulele by a rubber clip that isolates the pickup from the rest of the cable going to the amplifier. I like this more than the powered preamp pickup that came with my ukulele.

    Comments about Kremona UK-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Ukulele:

    I loved the sound picked up by this pickup! It was natural and solid as a rock. The device itself is not so. It cantilevers out of the bridge area onto the front of the baritone ukulele and in hindsight I should have shored it up under there. I stepped on the cord on the bandstand (the dark!) and cracked it dead. It had the greatest sound and I did not have to alter my instrument. It was easy to install. It is just too delicate for my working situation. Darn! Operator error, I suppose.

          Works great with clean amplifier settings. I hooked it up to a Fender Mustang; and effects such as echo, re verb and tremolo work fine.

          It howls with feedback if you use an overdrive effect.

          Overall, it works as advertised and is simple to install.

            Best to install the small but handsome pick up while you are installing new strings,as it must fit securely under them and on the bridge.

              Comments about Kremona UK-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Ukulele:

              Sounds great, easy to use, what more could you ask for? To put it on, you have to loosen all your strings until they are sagging off your uke. Then you slide it under the string knots on the bridge. So you have to go through the hastle to getting your uke back in tune, but that is much easier than drilling holes, etc. that may be required with alternative methods of installing a pick-up. Once you've got it in place, it works great.

                Requires no damage or alteration to instrument and looks like part of the bridge. Sounds as good as any under-saddle pickup. Why didn't I think of this?

                  Very easy to install and use, good even sound quality. I tried this out on 2 very different ukes and the pickup worked well on both. My only comments would be that it would be easier to use if the 1/8" jack would have been the standard 1/4" which would have allowed for a heavier gauge cord to reduce some surface noise, not a deal breaker but that would be my personal preference.

                    I just received the pickup today and installed it on my Kamaka tenor. The UK-1 install in a few minutes and sound very good through my Fender Acoustasonic. The best part is that it is very easy to install and most of all, no modification to the instrument. I will mostly use it for recording directly to my mac and recommend it to any musician that want to install a pickup without drilling into your instrument or having to file the bridge saddle.
