Oyster D/S (double/socket)

« Back
Oyster D/S (double/socket)

Our Oyster pickups give your instrument a natural, warm, full sound instantly, without active switching or preamps.

  • The outstanding sound is realized through the perfect interplay of three elements, the membrane, the piezo and a special high-quality plastic contact gel..
  • All Oyster models are fixed to the instrument either with double sided adhesive tape or alternatively, with removable adhesive pads which do not damage the surface of the instrument.
  • Models 16050101 and 16050102 are designed for interior mounting, whereas the models 16050103 and 16050501 are for exterior mounting.
  • Cable lengths:
    • 16050101 = 45 cm
    • 16050102 = 35 cm
    • 16050103 + 16050501 = 320 cm

Thin adhesive tape is recommended for guitars that are quite resonant. If however, very loud signal strength is required, an adhesive silicone rubber pad is preferable. Instructions: Cut a 2cm piece of double sided adhesive silicone rubber pad or tape, remove the protective foil and stick it to the underside of the pickup, then stick the pickup onto the guitar. Finished!

With a high-quality 1/4" jack socket including cable strain relief, screw nozzle and strap button. Professional quality, secure mounting and perfect shielding make the Oyster pickup all the more valuable!

Recommended installation:

As the resonance and build of guitars varies, you need to find out the ideal positioning of the pickup on your instrument. In practice, the following three positioning options are the most common:

  1. Under the strings, in front of the bridge, between the second and the third treble string (B and G)
  2. Directly onto the treble side of the bridge
  3. Behind the bridge on the treble side


Models which have two capsules are positioned so that the second capsule is placed close to the bass strings. The control box should always be affixed using double sided adhesive tape and positioned so that it is easy to reach while playing.

Our Oyster pickups have a capacity of 74 pF. We recommend a minimum output impedance of 1 to 5 MOhm.

Removing the pickup:

Carefully remove the pickup without putting any strain on the cable. You can loosen the pickup more easily by turning the capsule from side to side (clockwise and anticlockwise). When you have removed the capsule, you can remove any remaining self-adhesive material with a little guitar polish.

Oyster position strong playing:

For powerful playing that includes percussive elements played on the guitar’s top attach Oyster piezo elements underneath the top in a straight line with the bridge and close to the sides. (See tab "images")

Oyster position normal playing:

For normal or lighter playing attach Oyster piezo elements left and right directly underneath the bridge. (See tab "images")

Measure specifications

All measurements in the product catalogue are given in mm (inch), unless a different unit of measurement is stated.

 

Technical drawings and operating instructions

We do not accept any liability for the correctness of the technical drawings. Prior to installation, please measure for yourself once more, so you can consider regular manufacturing tolerances.

Please note that the technical data can also vary slightly, depending on the surface color. This is due to the difference in the galvanic coating and the galvanic layering, which depends on the color (nickel, chrome etc).

The technical drawings can be printed on one page width. Should the technical drawings not fit on one page, however, please check your print page setup (note: they can be several pages long).

Humbucking Pickups

All of our single-pole Humbucker pickups are built to fit in any common frame.
Our frames provide mounting with four height adjustment screws to prevent tilting. When winding the coils we pay special attention to the precise matching of each pair of coils – essential for ensuring 100% humbucking function.
As with our single-coil pickups, all Humbucker coils are soaked in a special process
to minimize microphone feedback.
The single-pole Humbuckers offer variable pole piece spacing at neck and bridge pickups, which permits full use of the magnetic field.
All pickups are available in Cream, Black or Cream Black (Humbuckers only).

Kinds of Strings

Steel strings can be used with all pickpus.
