WP-1X Built-in pickup for woodwind instruments
With the WP-1X built-in pickup you get “high-tech for the mouthpiece”! The miniature pickup is the result of a consequent development of our very successful pickup for woodwind instruments – the Rumberger K1X. Due to the extreme miniaturization, the new pickup can now be integrated into the mouthpiece – no drilling of the instrument body is required.
With a diameter of just 8 mm including a structure-borne silencer, the WP-1X fits into almost all mouthpieces for woodwind instruments. Especially for very deep instruments such as bass clarinet or baritone saxophone, which are very difficult to pick up with a conventional microphone, our WP-1X is the perfect solution.
A big advantage is that in the built-in position in the mouthpiece, frequencies can no longer be erased even with the highest tones. This results in a very balanced sound in all ranges. Absolute uniformity over all tones of the woodwind instrument and a sound pickup without feedback are the best prerequisites for stress-free monitoring.
For maximum freedom of movement, the system can be operated with almost all guitar wireless systems. These advantages guarantee the best conditions for uncompromisingly good stage performance.
For whom is the WP-1X the right pickup?
For some musicians, the body of the instrument must not be drilled under any circumstances and an extremely inconspicuous design is important to them. For this purpose, a drilling of the mouthpiece is absolutely acceptable. These clarinet or saxophone players are just right for the Rumberger WP-1X, because the miniature pickup is almost invisible. In contrast to the K1X, which is a change-over system, the WP-1X remains permanently mounted in the mouthpiece.
Of course in best quality, 100% Made in Germany – like all our products!
