A pickup that captures your cello's true voice.

The KNA VC-1 cello pickup lets cellists easily amplify their acoustic instrument while preserving its natural tone. The lightweight wood-encased piezo sensor installs securely on the bridge, held by friction, without any permanent modifications. The 1/4" output jack attaches to the tailpiece with an included Velcro band, providing a plug-and-play setup. With the VC-1, you can focus on your music rather than technical hassles.

Capture Your Cello's True Voice

The VC-1 pickup features a piezo sensor encased in a wooden housing designed to accurately convey your cello's acoustic character. The sensor's lightweight wood casing provides excellent tonal transmission without damping the instrument's vibration or changing its response. When you plug in the VC-1, you'll hear the same rich, nuanced tone of your cello, only amplified. The pickup gives you the flexibility to play small clubs or large venues while retaining the intimate sound that drew you to the cello originally.

Installs Securely Without Permanent Modifications

Designed for quick, non-invasive installation, the VC-1 pickup lets you amplify your cello without permanent alterations. The sensor fits into the bridge's eye slot, held by friction. Optional shim spacers ensure a perfect fit for any bridge width. An included Velcro strap secures the output jack to the tailpiece. Setup takes minutes with common household tools. When you're done playing amplified, simply remove the pickup—your cello remains in original condition. The VC-1 gives you stage-ready sound without compromising your instrument.

Passive Pickup Needs No Battery

Using a simple piezo transducer, the VC-1 pickup is completely passive and requires no battery or power source. The wooden-encased sensor converts your cello's vibrations into an output signal to feed directly into an amplifier or mixing board. Without onboard preamp electronics, the VC-1 maintains the most natural, transparent reproduction of your instrument possible. You get great amplified tone without the cost, complexity and potential tone coloring of an active system. Just plug in and play.
