Piezo pickup - pre-wired (available with volume control)

Product Description

If you don't want the hassle of soldering a pickup - here's the solution. Assembled and soldered, ready to drop into your guitar. 

Available either simply wired direct to a jack socket or with a volume control.

This is the easiest way to put a pickup into your cigar box guitar- simply fix the pickup with a dab of silicone sealant inside the box under the top, in the area of the bridge, drill a hole for the jack socket and install the jack socket washer and nut. With a piezo pickup you don't need to earth the strings, so it is super-easy and quick to do.

Ideal for all cigar box guitars. We use these in our "Make and Play" workshops, and there are well over 2500 of them already out there. These pickups are fine for casual home use, but we advise caution if you are plugging into a powerful amp, as it is easy to get feedback with this type of pickup. 

If you want to crank your guitar to the max and blow out the windows, we recommend one of our pre-wired electro-magnetic pickups - single coil or humbucker.

Due to the on going Coronavirus pandemic please be aware that shipping and delivery services may be affected or limited. Unfortunately we have had to remove some Hermes and UPS delivery options from our list of couriers due to their closure of parcel pickups and drop offs. We are trying our best to carry on as normal but please be aware there may be delays.

We will also be reducing the number of post drop offs and collections to twice a week to reduce the risk to both ourselves and our couriers.

Please note we are a small family business not Amazon, and that whilst we aim to pick, quality check and pack all orders within two working days, due to limited man power and time, orders may be delayed a little at busy times and weekends. Orders placed on Friday will not be packed until the following Monday to be sent out either on Monday or to be collected by our couriers on Tuesday. Please bear with us, we try to do our best!

Delivery times for orders are from the time of dispatch, not from the time of order placement. The time given for shipping is an estimate and not a guarantee.

You will receive an email from us once your order has been dispatched (this email will sometimes be sent to your spam folder). You may also receive an email from the courier with any updates on your order delivery time. If you have provided a phone number with your order you may also receive this information by message.  

If your order is for a present/gift or needs to arrive on a select date please let us know in the note option during checkout or through a follow up email. 

FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE the UK and EU

Please note that tax and duty may be charged in your country and requires payment before the goods are released to you. It is your responsibility to deal with this. Please note we have no control over the process. There is often a minimum value before tax and duty are charged and advise you to check the value at which tax and duty become due, to ensure that you are willing to pay these additional charges.

If you are ordering outside the UK please take note the currency in use is £ (pound sterling).


Please be aware that if you purchase a product using PayPal that contains a La Aroma de Cuba box (guitar, kit etc) due to the item having the word Cuba in there may be a delay with the payment going through the system as PayPal is an American company and so has to abide by USA laws, regardless of where the item is being shipped from and to. 

If you have any questions about our shipping or about your order please send us an email and we will see what we can do to help.
