This pickup was intended for a nylon guitar and was purchased in Barcelona ca. 1983:
The brace has the following inscription:
"...Guitar Mic / Menorm..."
I think it's British made, but I'm not sure...
A few days ago, I tried my Menorm pickup with my Ramírez and my Elpico, and I like very much the sound emaning from them.
Inner of the devices that produce the sound I'm talking about:
My Ramírez and one of my Double Bass bows:
BTW, a question for the UK members:
As far as I know, neither Lennon, nor Harrison, did use a "parrandera"* when playing Spanish guitars while standing...
Could this mean that this device was not known in the UK by those times??
Thanks in advance and best wishes!! :wink:
* This is one of the names given in Spain to the strap used to hold the Spanish guitar when playing standing. Other names are "cordón" and also "correa". Here there are two examples:
