SITAR TRANSDUCERS, PRE-AMPS & AMPLIFIERS ~ AMPLIFY YOUR SITAR!!

PRE-AMPS BY LR BAGGS

STROBE TUNERS BY PETERSON FOR SITAR

MIDI ADAPTERS FOR SITAR AND OTHER INSTRUMENTS

We've had a lot of experience looking for the perfect way to amplify a sitar. There are a lot of options, the standard SM-57 mic as used by touring musicians or contact pickups or a combination of both. The most common pickup available is made by K&K sound and we used to carry them when I founded Sitarsetc. They are sold as K&K, Blue-spot, D-Tar, etc. at various places and do an average job but sorely lacking in the full sound spectrum and prone to feedback problems with poor customer service. We offer 4 choices that work much better. The ST-08 transducer by McIntyre pickups, the sitar pickup from PUTW, the affordable Supreme acoustic transducer from India, and the Schertler Dyn-E for professional applications. If you need any advice or have a specific setup requirement such as a stereo setup we're happy to help.

ALL SALES FINAL WITH ITEMS FROM THIS PAGE UNLESS DEFECTIVE. DEFECTIVE ITEMS WILL BE EXCHANGED FOR SIMILAR OR STORE CREDIT.

TRANSDUCERS ~ PICKUPS FOR SITAR

Sitar pickup Sitar transducer McIntyre ST-08

 

 The ST-08 is a great alternative to the cheap twin pickups that have flooded the transducer market. Feature a protective coating and is easily removed and reinstalled. Large enough to produce a great sound without another contact being necessary. A good 'hot' sound for a disc transducer with high sensitivity and level in a standard pre-amp setup.  Attaches with adhesive putty that's included. I (Lars) use one myself !! Output is a standard 1/4" jack. We will be testing other types of McIntyre pickups in the future for stereo and permanent mounts. This particular model was developed using the PARA DI pre-amp by LR BAGGS.

SUPREME ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER for Sitar and other instruments

Made in Hyderabad, India and sometimes seen in various places, this is a basic cheap and easy stick on trandsducer for the budget minded musician. Much better than the K&K Sound transducers at less than half the price. They are ready to go right through your amp or mixer as long as it has a pre-amp function, for best results use an equalizer and you'll be surprised at the results! Easy disconnect so you can leave just the transducer on the instrument without the cable.
