Installation Guide for JourneyTek® Passive piezo pickups.
Here’s a great video overview and a downloadable PDF document for guidance on how to install our passive piezo pickups. The video demonstrates installation for EP001K – our passive steelstring pickup with German-made piezos. The process is similar for EP002K, EP003K, and EP004K.
Note For Ukulele Piezo Positioning: Most ukuleles have three fan braces as shown in the image below.
Position the two piezo elements of the EP003 pickup on either side of the center brace. Because of the size of most ukulele sound holes and the relative distance to the bridge plate, it is sometimes difficult to position the piezos on the bridge plate at the position (1). Alternatively you can position them in location (2). The attachment process is identical to that shown in the above video, with the exception that you will not be using a jig, but will rather hold the piezo in place with your finger until the glue dries.
If you want to position directly under the saddle, or if you’re working with a pinless bridge, you can search on YouTube for “under bridge pickup instal on pinless bridge” and one of the top results show how you can drill into the saddle slot to use a jig for positioning the piezos on a pinless bridge.
