K & K Sound Pure Mini Pickup with Volume Control for Steel String




The Pure + Volume Control combines a Pure pickup (Mini, Classic, or 12-String) with an adjustable thumbwheel lightweight volume control element which peel-and-stick installs on the inner edge of the soundhole.

The added volume control element is a passive volume control. No batteries or soldering required! If you want a volume control on your guitar without drilling a hole in your valuable instrument, this is the solution.

Please note, the Volume Control does not boost the volume, it only allows you to turn your guitar down. It functions best when the input impedance of the device you plug your guitar in is 1 Mega Ohm (preamp/amp or mixing board-channel). If this input impedance deviates to a large amount (i.e. 100 Kilo Ohms or 10 Mega Ohms), you may experience diminished range (from full volume to off within a 1/3rd rotation) or, in extreme cases, a slight hum when the potentiometer is at middle position. This is a normal phenomenon when passive potentiometers are used with piezo based pickups. At full-on or full-off it will always be noise-free. A lot of customers use the Volume Control like an extended on/off switch.

If you’re looking for an active miniature preamp combination that delivers more precise volume control plus a phase switch, we recommend the Pure + Pre-Phase.


K&K Sound

K&K Sound Systems was founded in Germany in 1984 by Dieter Kaudel and his wife Karla. Our mission is to establish K&K as the premier manufacturer of the highest quality acoustic amplification products in the world while maintaining the highest respect and service to our customers, employees, and community. Having pickups built by machines can save money, but the quality usually suffers when a pickup is designed to be mass produced robotically. We design our pickups so that they sound great, not so that a machine can easily put them together. All K&K products are designed and manufactured in house, enabling us to quickly react to customer and market needs. Specific requests for customized products are easily met for musicians, dealers, and manufacturers. Our products are proudly Made in Oregon, USA. We encourage our customers to shop local and we strive to do the same.
