Indianapolis, IN June 16, 2017- Following their mantra of “necessity is the mother of RE-invention”, SOLOMON is tackling the issue of amplifying and recording the Cajon. Following up on the worldwide success of the LoFReQ Sub-Mic, SOLOMON will be premiering the PUQ Cajon Pickup at Summer NAMM 2017 in Nashville, TN. Like the LoFReQ Sub-Mic, the PUQ was designed and developed by SOLOMON designer Henry French, and is assembled by hand in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
The SOLOMON PUQ Cajon Pickup is a first-of-it’s kind dynamic, tactile transducer, meaning it gathers it’s signal directly from the structure of the cajon, thereby providing increased headroom compared to standard cajon microphone options. The PUQ also attaches directly to the instrument via the cajon sound hole in under 20 seconds, greatly reducing setup and breakdown time.
Several features set the PUQ apart from conventional cajon-mic’ing options:
Tactile transducer; means better feedback control and headroom Non-permanent installation; adjustable L-bracket for different cajon dimensions Neutrik/REAN 1⁄4” connects easily to DI or effect pedals
Aircraft aluminum powder-coated chassis for added durability
Dynamic pickup motor does NOT require phantom power or batteries
Wired with Mogami cable
The SOLOMON PUQ Cajon Pickup will be displayed and demoed at Summer NAMM 2017, Booth 113, and ships domestically and internationally starting July 15, 2017.
