K&K Pure Classic

K&K Pure Pickup for Nylon String Guitars

The Pure Pickup by K&K: Clarity and Simplicity Combined

The Pure Pickup is an award-winning, signature pickup for acoustic guitars. Installed on the guitar's bridge plate, the Pure Pickup is the best choice for achieving a rich, natural guitar sound -- even without a preamp!

Our customers tell us that it's the best passive pickup on the market, which means it's the perfect plug-and-play solution for the musician who wants a warm, full-range signal without worrying about cluttering up their instrument, adjusting onboard electronics, or having to remember to change the battery.

Pure Classic: 4-Head Transducer for Nylon String Acoustic Guitar

The Pure Pickup's position on the bridge plate provides the perfect balance of sound, picking up all the strings without sounding harsh or percussive and "listening" to the soundboard to amplify the unique characteristics of your guitar. The result is a warm, full-range signal that represents the true character of your guitar.

Passive Pickup for Natural Tone

As a passive pickup, the Pure Pickup offers a warm and natural tone that is true to the acoustic sound of your nylon string guitar. It delivers a full-range signal without the need for a preamp, making it an ideal choice for musicians who prefer a straightforward setup without additional electronics.

Easy Installation with Superglue or Double Stick Tape

The Pure Classic is designed to be installed with superglue for optimum sound transmission. For players who prefer a non-permanent installation, we also supply a special extra thin double stick tape for a peel-and-stick removable installation. Please note that pickups installed with this tape will require a preamp, as the output is reduced by about 30% compared to the superglue installation.
