    Hello Jim,

    i plan to build in a pickup in my Uke. How do you glue the two mic-pads onto the sattle? With double-glue-tape or with SuperGlue ?

      Hi Matthias –
      Two transducers are glued to the bridge plate under the bridge, ideally positioned directly under the saddle. Nothing is glued to the saddle.
      Gell Super Glue is used. Reaching the bridgeplate is tricky on a baritone uke, you will need to fashion some kind of extension to hold the transducer in
      place while the Gel Super Glue sets up, usually about 3 minutes. Contact tape will yield an inferior tone.
