NEW FROM JJB ELECTRONICS
COMES THE VTP-200 !
This system utilizes a dual piezo
configuration for a crisp sound. The dual piezo configuration offers a few
advantages over single piezo systems. Having two piezo’s affords you the
opportunity to place them at two different points on the soundboard thus
resulting in an improved dynamic range due to the fact that they transmit the
resonation found at more than one point. These
special surface transducers are under less pressure
than under saddle pickups thus decreasing the likelihood of them
percussive or harsh sound. Each piezo is designed to pick up the
found in a significant amount of the soundboard. These do not "fade"
or distort at high volume or with high-power systems. The highs are
clear while the lows are what they should be, low! These were inspired
by our good friends at Red-Dog Guitars. These are by far the most
system that we have ever offered. They are very responsive. The volume
controls let you tune in the exact sound that you are looking for. This
configuration is offered in several high end guitars. All of our
feature quality components and construction. These now utilize a ¼ mono
is of equal quality to those manufactured by Switchcraft, as well as
high quality Alpha potentiometers, thus the reason for
the slight price increase. Not to mention the ever-increasing costs
associated with supplies and shipping, etc. These also work in a
variety of instruments. Mandolins, ukulele’s, bass guitars, banjo’s, violins,
dobro’s, dulcimers, stomp boxes, etc. The possibilities are endless! These,
like all of our systems, can be installed in about 15 minutes! They are a very
simple and inexpensive means of turning your acoustic instruments in to
acoustic electric. Please don’t let the price fool you though! Read on…..
Please do not hesitate to
ask if you have any special requests. We are capable of building endless
variations of any configuration that we offer. We can usually customize cable
lengths free of charge. Additional piezo’s can be added to any system purchased
for a fee of $5.00 each. Please note that by doing this you are not getting an
additional system, you are just adding an additional piezo to the pickup configuration
that you are purchasing. We keep a large variety of jacks and connectors on
hand. We should be able facilitate any request that you might have. We have
also built many systems from the ground up for several luthiers. We are
confident that we can work with you to develop the best system to suit your
We are confident enough with
our products that we are willing to put them up against any others out there!
They are the most natural sounding pickup systems on the market today. Bold
statement but we stand behind it. These will easily rival systems costing up to
four times as much.

Our friends at Red-Dog guitars;
We have to distinct
privilege of being able to say that we custom build “The Rectifier” pickup for
our good friends at Red Dog Guitars. Check them out!
We have worked side by side
with John McNair from Red Dog to develop this innovative pickup configuration
for his guitars. John is a true artist and craftsman. You have to own one of
these guitars to be able to understand the type of meticulous attention to
detail that he puts into them. They are the innovators in such instruments.
Everyone else is just playing catch up!
Check out Mr. Reddog himself, our good friend John laying down some blues on one of his beatuiful works of art! And oh yeah, that is a JJB pickup!
We can talk all day long
about how great our products are, but of course we have a biased opinion!
Please do not take our word for it, our customer testimony and feedback speaks
for itself. We have had several of our customers who have done side-by-side
comparisons with such big names as K&K, Shadow, Dean Markley, Martin, etc.
The results have been overwhelming. Please feel free to google our products.
You can read customer testimony for days! There are several discussions about
these in forums, blogs, etc. We also have several reviews for our product line
at www.harmonycentral.com. Here is what a few of our customers have to
Jessie-just a note to tell you how happy I am with the pickups I've bought from you. I installed the latest one in a 20-odd year
old Fender Concord acoustic of my sister's, and it actually sounds better than my more expensive guitar in which I
installed a Shadow (marketed by Gibson)top-sensing piezo 2 years ago. And it was less than half the price! I don't know how you do it,
but keep it up-you're on my favorites list. I just wanted to let you know I received my order (PPS200)
today. Thank you!!! I had an old Alvarez guitar that didn't have a pickup but sounded great by itself. Now I can plug it in and
it doesn't lose any of its great acoustic sound. Great product!!!
It is so simple to install too. Anyway just wanted to let you know
how much I like your product and look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Thanks A Very Satisfied Customer, Randal Richards Dear Jessie, I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your pickups and what they have done for my guitars. Your pickups are by far the best on the market and they are the only ones
that I use on all of my guitars. They are very much a part of the
Red Dog sound that cannot be achieved any import or domestic pickups available on the market. My customers are proud to know that your pickups are both completely hand-wired and made in America. In today’s
changing times, our economy needs more qualified craftsman such as yourself and your product is invaluable to the music industry. Through the good times and the bad you have been there for me and made every single pickup as if it was your most important one and I
firmly believe it’s the reason for my company’s success. You are the backbone of Red Dog Guitars and because my guitars are built around your pickups is the reason my guitars are so great. I
have tried everything on the market from Mighty Mite to K&K,
all the way up to overpriced Fishman and nothing delivers such a full range in both sound and signal. I look forward to many more years of both a close friendship and product alliance as I’m
in firm belief that your pickups are the BEST! John McNair,
Red Dog Guitars 2006
Hi Jesse, just writing to let you know how i got on with your Prestige,
I followed the instructions from your web site. Very easy to follow and
It took now time at all! I used a 13mm wood bit, on a very slow speed, and
Super Glue Gel. It was sooo simple! The sound is just superb... can't believe
how effective it is. I'm running my guitar through a Fender BXR 25 Bass
practice amp... I'm a bass player, what can i say. I like full bassy sound! It
sounds quite stunning! I'm very very surprised! You're producing top quality
equipment at budget prices! The rock box compliments the over all very well. I
love my 'cheapo' Samick 12 string and now it sounds even better! WOW! In this
time of economic depression it's really great to find a success story... and
boy should you be successful! You really are producing a great product at
an unbelievable price! I may just purchase a few more from you as future
protection against your success and obvious price hike! LOL!
Thank you Jessie, you Rock!
Gary 'Mitch' Mitchell
I wanted to say thanks for the great service! I used the
pickup last night at a show and it sounded amazing. It was very natural
and it had plenty of output. You do a hell of a job, this is my
3rd pickup I have bought from you and I will be back for more. Thanks again! Adam Townsend Hi Jessie, I received my pickup in the mail today and I am absolutely thrilled with it. The quality is outstanding. The price was incredible and the customer support that you gave was first
rate and I can't compliment you enough for that. You just don't
find that these days. I will be sure to tell my musician friends
about your web site and hope that I can send some business your way. I don't spend much money but if the need arises I will
certainly be a repeat customer. Let me reiterate; I am absolutely
thrilled with my purchase and I mean THRILLED! Can't thank you enough. I really appreciate the price to quality ratio. I
almost feel guilty. :) I am pretty financially deficient so it really
means a lot to me. Sorry to ramble but I'm really impressed. Thanks again, Jeff
Jessie, I just wanted to thank you again and to let potential customers know what an honest and straight-forward business person you are. I had a slight problem with an acoustic pick-up
that I purchased off the E-Bay site and it was solved quickly
and over and above satisfaction. Looking forward to dealing
with you in the future. Thanks! Clell (Ohio) Recieved my PPS-200 today. Took all of 1 hour to install. I
made a cardstock jig , using the two outside peg holes as
reference, marking string and saddle placement, then cut to fit the
internal bracing. I used some packing tape rolled to hold the piezo's
in place (after some thought as to where I really wanted to place
the transducers) and a couple of thin strips of tape to hold
the transducers so the wires would be out of the way of the peg holes. I was able to glue both piezo's in place at the same
time, with relative confidence that they were where I wanted them. Then only minor panic as I drilled a hole through the side of
my Jasmine (not a bad guitar for a cheap one). New strings, a
quick tune, and POW! A nice acoustic sound, (and passive to boot) very close to what my guitar sounds like unamplified, with
flat EQ, even with my early 80's Peavey TKO 80 I keep plugged in as
a practice amp. I have nice, even output on all strings (just
a tad weak on the high E, should have shifted just a tiny bit to
that side, but this is being very critical as to my installation) Thanks
for being honest about your products. I was totally impressed with
the true sound, and for a fraction of the price of the other,
bigger names. Eleven stars for good sound and incredible price. James T Martin I have done a few local craft fairs with my Sweet Baby Ray
Cigar Box Guitars with your pickups and people are amazed at the sound they produce. Since I switched to your pickups the difference is like night and day. Thanks again. Ray Dear Jessie I got the three head pick-ups and have fitted it/them to my guitar, I have taken some pics (as the guitar is very
unusual) and will send them to you when I am able. The guitar is a
Skylark acoustic with what is called a double funnel
construction. That is, it has no soundhole but is open as the neck/
cutaways and incorporates high grade bracing. The body also incorporates a built in baffle which enhances bass response and gives a very big sound. The sound is magic with the pickups. Ian M Hi Jessie,Just wanted you to know that I installed the pickups
last night and strung her back up today. I'm very impressed!. Great
sound,easy install and exactly what I was looking for. You
have definitely hit my favorite sellers list. Thanks for all of the
advise and guidance. The project worked out great. I'm considering doing the same thing to my 12 string Seagull(straight acoustic) that
I've had for so many years. You gave me a great product for my use at a great price and invaluable advise..Thanks..David I really wanted to let you know that I finally got some time
to really play and have semi-permanently affixed the original single I got from you to my viola. Man, this pickup is
cool! I can't believe the gain you get from your design. I don't even
need a preamp. In fact, there is so much gain that I am
tweaking my settings to compensate for feedback. Yours just sounds
so much better than the other pickups I have gotten. I can tell
you that once I decide which instruments I want to permanently
electrify, I will probably get a couple of more units. You can
count on the fact that I am telling everybody I know who would like to add
a pickup to their acoustic instruments, that they should contact
you. Way to go! I need to stock up so I have some
extras when you get famous and have to start charging $100 a piece for them. :-) I now have an incredible, newly upgraded electric mandolin that sounds awesome. It is as good or better
than an original equipment electric mandolin. Thanks again,
Brian Surks Hi, Jessie, I have been remiss on getting some sort of
feedback to you other than the one-liners allowed me. I have gotten
several of your products and, obviously, that should speak quite well
of them, but there's more than that. I am very impressed with
them. Great output and clarity. I have not had ANY feedback problems with them (and I have cranked them up!). I have installed most in acoustic Drednaughts. I have had MANY nice comments about the sound of my guitars. After some experimentation I have a couple, three, different places I have mounted them with great satisfaction in the
tonal reproduction of the guitars. I've referred them to some
friends here and installed a couple in other people's guitars.
Everyone is quite impressed. I still have a couple more guitars I haven't installed pickups in, yet. They wil probably get yours. Kudos
to you on your great products. They are cleanly made, and well- constructed. Many thanks to you!! Lee Muller chickenpicker Wanted to express my thanks for one amazing pickup. Been out of town and returned to pickup waiting for me. Thanks for going out of your way to make it
right for me. This will work great for me on my mandos. It's by far much better than I expected. I
was blown away on how good it sounds. So much so I just ordered another external pickup. No modifications on this one. Just as it is, going on my Martin. Left positive feedback. I'm very glad I stumbled on your auction. Thanks! JOHN AMANN Thank you for your recent advice on the dual piezo pickup for my Admira spanish guitar. I have had the pickup fitted for a week now and just wanted to say a big thank you for such a great product. I have been playing acoustic guitars for 30+
years and have some expensive systems fitted to other guitars but these pickups sound just as good. On the nylon strung guitar
the sound is so natural and full and there is no noise pickup from
the rest of the soundboard.(on some transducers you get the sound of your sleeve rubbing on the guitar). I will be ordering some
more of these to replace some under-saddle piezo's in the near
future. Only took me about 10 minutes to fit too. Thanks very much, John Wastnidge Thanks a lot! This will be my 3rd guitar powered by JJB transducers. I really like what you guys are doing with your company. I play in a semi-pro working band and have at least some influence locally on musician opinion, and I have been talking JJB up in the last year or so as a solid new company
with a great products at very musician-friendly prices. Thanks so much! Dan Liechty Your dual transducers are a great link between my
beloved Guild that I've had for 31 years, and my Fender amp. I
wanted a true acoustic sound and I love it. Thanks for your great
product and service. Charlie Baker Received the pickup today. I tried it on a dulcimer and am pleased with the results. I am a dulcimer builder and am considering incorporating a pickup into some of them. I
believe your product is what I have been looking for as the acoustic sound is not altered. Billy Walker
