NCIS-New Orleans concluded their season with a episode featuring star Scott Bakula sitting in with Walter "Wolfman" Washington on the piano in his bar. The reason you could hear the piano so clearly was a Helpinstill Model 125 Upright Piano Sensor recently purchased by the show! On top of the piano near the bottle you can see the three knobs sticking up from the Helpinstill control box, while the yellow pickup strips are visible behind the strings just above the hammers.
 Even though the Helpinstill Piano Sensor was off the market for sixteen years, as soon as we opened our website doors, many of our old friends contacted us immediately to get some more of those pickup strips that were an essential part of their piano wiring. The thought of having to go back to piezo transducers was too depressing, and their old systems were starting to wear out after decades on the road. Today, they're in good hands with Helpinstill again, and we're getting calls from the hottest new up-and-coming acts on a regular basis.
