Parts of the Model 325 Upright Sensor


Model 325 Helpinstill Balanced-Line Upright Piano Sensor

This is an upright system compatible with our Model 380 Grand System mixer. Like the Model 125, it fits all vertical pianos: spinets, uprights, or console models.We have incorporated the same balanced-line construction technique and XLR connectors that make the Model 380 able to use our phantom-powered line-level mixer. These are not humbucking pickups, but we have found that the cast-iron plate of upright pianos provides such effective shielding that hum is rarely a problem. The single-coil design also allows the pickup strips (Sensors) to be more thin and flexible, allowing them to be easily slipped in behind the strings. Since all upright pianos have the keyboard range divided into three sections, three sensors provide coverage of every note. We have selected the lengths through years of experience to provide the best chance of complete coverage on whatever upright piano you might have. The output is a line-level XLR jack for connection with a mic cable. A special model is also available for 64-note uprights. $1095.
