The System consists of the following components:The System consists of the following components:
The Quantum Trinity Western System includes following components:
Pure Western Pickup [»] show/hide
The Pure Western System works with three Pickups (transducers) that are stuck under the bridge plate. Each of the transducer is for a pair of strings (EA, DG) to produce a balanced sound and no string is extremely loud or soft. Each of the transducer is for a pair of strings (E-A, D-G, B-E) to produce a balanced sound and no string is extremely loud or soft. Being close to the bridge keeps the percussive sound of the strings in the sound and get the feedback sensitivity is low.

Trinity Microphone [»] show/hide
The Trinity is attached with Velcro holder in the body and has a gooseneck, the one to facilitate optimal positioning and the resulting therefrom sound variations. If you would like more information about this Pickup, call this product directly to our shop. If you would like more information about this Pickup, call this product directly to our shop.
The Trinity Microphone features an integrated 5" gooseneck (allowing it to be positioned in a number of ways, incuding outside the soundhole) and 20-20,000 Hz frequency range.
Technical Information for the Trinity Microphone:
Frequency range mic: 20 - 20,000 Hz
Sensitivity mic: 8 mV / PA / 1 kHz
Maximum SPL mic: 133dB
Polar Pattern: Soft cardioid
Power Requirement: 1.5 - 9 volt
Quantum Blender [»] show/hide
The Quantum Blender is a two-channel preamp/mixer but this unit goes one step further.
Two fully independent channels feature special tailored powerful 3-band EQ, phase reverse switches, gain and volume controls.
Mixed output options in both active-balanced and 1/4" line-level format, individual outputs, stereo and mono inputs, and effect loop. Channel one is switchable from mic to Pickup impedance.
All this, plus K&K's ultra low noise circuitry.
The Quantum Blender allows for mixing a piezo transducer with a microphone, magnetic Pickup or another piezo Pickup. It can be used with any "2 wire" powered lavalier type condenser mic or with a piezo or magnetic Pickup.
With an appropriate microphone impedance matching transformer a dynamic mic can be used as well.
Channel 2 is designed with K&K's Trinity System or Pure Pickup in mind, but it works well with all types of piezo transducers.
Gain: The 2 gain controls allow for adjusting the input sensitivity of each channel.
Here you can set the sensitivity of each channel to fit different Pickups, microphones or transducers.
Inputs: Stereo 1/4" line input · 2 individual mono 1/4" line inputs
Outputs: Balanced XLR Mix out (carries both channels) · Line level 1/4" Mix out (carries both channels) Individual 1/4" line outputs of channel 1 and 2
Effect Loop: The effect loop allows for connecting to an effect unit (like reverb) via a special 1/4" stereo cable with a stereo plug on one side and 2 mono 1/4 plugs on the other.

Option: Gold-plated strap nut
If it should look something noble, the cartridge can also be supplied with a gold-plated strap button. Simply put the option to the shopping bag.

K & K Pickups are RoHS compliant. Piezoceramic is officially excluded.In the manufacture of ceramics, lead is used as it unfortunately currently there is no functional substitute. The lead is incorporated in the ceramic, and is sealed on both sides by a silver electrode. The ceramics is mounted on a solid brass plate. From above it is provided with a plastic seal, so that the lead is so hermetically sealed completely and makes contact with the skin makes it impossible. Damage to the Pickup, because you could come in contact with lead. We are WEEE conform and wear exclusively for K & K products throughout Europe, the responsibility of WEEE.
