This electric cimbalom pickup is the longest we have. And which probably exists. The standard size can cover a maximum string spacing of 60cm! - An ideal add-on pickup for cimbalom or hammered dulcimers.


Along the sides, aluminum girders give stability. Between them, an inlay of tortoise celluloid gives it a vintage look. At the backside, we put structured tape to  smoothly shift it on the surface of the instrument.


This product is not avilable any more.

    Please note: Depending on your preferences and expectations regarding the look I suggest to refrain from ordering. This is no industrial product. It is handmade and you might dislike its optical appearence.

  • All pickups are tested before leaving. Please check the pickup before mounting it. If it doesn't work as you expect it, you can send it back on your account and I will refund the money that you paid for it.

    If it stops working during a period of three (3) years from the date of delivery, you can return it to me and I return the money you paid for it, except the pickup broke due to improper use, e.g. by tearing out the connection wires.
