HFN-S2

The HFN-S2 is designed to give you a full, rich sound and will reproduce exactly what your gypsy jazz guitar sounds like. Along with being simple to install, these pickups exhibit excellent feedback rejection and good string to string balance. All HFN-S2's are designed to be used with a preamp - for best results, the HFN-S2 passive may be paired up with one of our outboard preamps.
The HFN-S2 series of pickups utilizes an elegant combination of materials: 3D printed ABS for its main structure and arching along with a light weight brass shell for its noise shielded piezo unit. Total weight of the pickup is a very light 0.2 ounces (7 grams). It will not affect the acoustic sound of the instrument when not in use.
The HFN-S2 will fit virtually all Selmer style braced guitars. The only hole that needs to be drilled is for the endpin jack.
The pickup is designed to allow it to flex and move along with the soundboard of the instrument. There is a certain amount of flex built into the arching of the pickup base and as well there is both some flex allowed and some isolation from the soundboard provided by the 3M VHB mounting tape.
Utilizing a single piezo sensing element that comes into contact with the soundboard of the guitar through the 'hooks' of the pickup base allows for several things. First, the HFN-S2 is able to sample from more than one spot and to sample those spots across a span of time. Second, since we are able to do all this with just the one element, the chances of creating mechanical phasing issues caused by having to use more than one sensing element is eliminated.
The HFN-S2 mounts to the bracing and is compatible with virtually all Selmer style instruments. While we were at it, we made the installation of the pickup quick and easy (even in the petite bouche).
We've utilized this cutaway of a Selmer soundboard to show the placement of the HFN-S2 pickup. The pickup mounts on the two large transverse braces that form the main structure of the bridge box.
The pickup is held securely in place with our special mounting putty. This mounting is quick and very secure. The pickup may be removed easily however, at any time should you want to move it to a different instrument.
Bracing
The S-2 series will fit virtually all Selmer style instruments on the market. The standard Selmer bracing has the 2 main transverse braces set at 1.9" apart, center to center and the bracing thickness averaging between 0.300" to 0.350". The new HFN-S2 models were designed to fit this set of standard design parameters.
The HFN-S2 is not designed to fit Favino style instruments when those instruments use a Favino brace spacing that puts the 2 main transverse braces 2.9" apart, center to center.
The HFN-S2 is not designed to fit MM series from Aria. The 2 main transverse braces on these instruments is approximately 2.56" apart.
