Manufacturer's Description from Schertler

BASIK is a general purpose, universal contact microphone that has a whole range of applications. Designed for use with practically any stringed, percussive or ethnic instrument, it has a precise, natural sound with no harshness or distortion. BASIK is easy to apply and can be moved between instruments, making it a cost-effective solution for semi-professional, student and multimedia projects. It’s also a useful addition to the professional sound engineer’s equipment arsenal.

The standard BASIK-SET package includes the pickup and a phantom power adapter box supplied with a 1.5V AA battery. This enables the pickup to be plugged directly into any amplifier for a no-fuss solution that’s easy to set up
