Product Description

MP-2 is a portable piezo pickup for mandolin, engineered and handcrafted by KNA. The innovative design allows an entirely external setup without any modifications to the instrument. The complete installation can be completed within a matter of minutes. The amplified tone is balanced and natural, providing full frequencies from bass to treble registers of the mandolin.

KNA Pickups are dedicated to providing acoustic musicians with natural-sounding, natural-looking means to amplify their instruments. KNA’s mission bridges the traditions of Old World artisans with the innovation of modern musicians they serve. Each KNA pickup is handcrafted in Europe using the fine components and tonewoods usually reserved for instruments themselves. 

In KNA’s full range of pickup solutions, they offer several designs to assure players get the best sound possible for their application. The piezo, magnetic, passive, and active pickups offer natural sound reproduction tailored specifically for the tonal and dynamic range of each instrument. KNA offer universal pickups that will work for nearly any instrument with a flat surface where the transducer can be placed, and popular models for nylon- and steel-string guitar, ukulele, banjo, bouzouki, violin, viola, cello and double bass. Each is crafted to offer the most authentic sound possible, with an easy installation that requires little or no modification to the instrument.  

Always encased in well-finished tonewood, KNA pickups distinguish themselves with superior fit, finish and sonic response.
