K&K Mandolin Twin Internal

The Mandolin Twin Internal is a twin-head, retrofit mandolin transducer. It is a fully internal pickup system. Both the tranducers and the endpin-jack are mounted inside the mandolin. The transducers are attached with special super-thin and strong peel-and-stick tape. Installation of this system should be done by an experienced luthier or mandolin tech. If you are looking for a system that is easy to install by yourself please check out our Mandolin Twin Fusion system.

The Mandolin Twin Internal reproduces the original mandolin tone with very natural tone quality and it is highly feedback resistant. It is used by high end Mandolin Builders like Clark Mandolins and by many professional players.

Due to the internal mounted pickups, the Mandolin Twin Internal delivers even better sound than our previous model, the Mandolin Twin. Plus it doesn't clutter up the outside of your instrument.

Pickup of Choice

I am a one man shop building a handful of mandolins a year, but when I am asked for recommendations for pickups the K+K comes first. I think the K+K has a very true acoustic sound and works well in high volume stage settings. It is a breeze to install and I've had no complaints about the dozens of K+K's I've installed in my and other makers instruments. And on top of that, Shoreline Music is great with customer service.

Awesome tone, great value

Installed in my Collings MF. Very responsive, very mic-like. Incredible tone absolutely clean with no pre-amp. Would definitely buy it again. Highly recommended.

K&K Mandolin Twin Internal Pickup

Easily installed. Great sound and output. Better than McIntyre Feather for noise level. Thanks for great service Shoreline!

Best acoustic pickups on the market!

I had already purchased a K&K Trinity for my Stonebridge G22CR-C, so when I decided to get a pickup for my stage mandolin, the K&K was the only pickup I considered. I was not disappointed- the mandolin sounds awesome when amplified with this pickup and preamp combo. It doesn't pick up as much of the distracting percussive noises from the mandolin top as the under saddle or top transducer pickups I've heard, so it's the next best thing to mic-ing your instrument. Of course mic-ing severely limits your ability to move around, so this pickup can set you free! Very pleased with the product and Shoreline is a great company to deal with!

K&K Dual head mandolin pickup internal

I purchased two of these to install in F-style mandolins that I am building. I have used K&K pickups previously and found them very suitable for this type of instrument.
The signal is powerful enough to use without a preamp. However if you were using a long lead or just wanted local control the it can be played through an external preamp such as the K&K Pure or Pure XLR .
I generally put a K&K in each of my instruments and I have just one preamp for when I need one.
The internal system for guitars and large body instruments with large sound holes ( Bouzouki, Octave Mandolin ) are suitable to retrofit but for a mandolin I think that this would be nigh on impossible for a lay person and and I would suggest the external system in such a case.
I will update after the instruments are completed
