The C411 is a miniature vibration pickup for acoustic guitar, mandolin, violin and most other string instruments. Its integrated condenser capsule will reproduce the sound of the instrument clearly and without coloration. The C411 ultralight pickup (18g/0.6oz) can be easily attached on or near the bridge with the included nonmarking, solvent-free adhesive pad without changing the balance of the instrument. The C411 is available in two versions. The C411 PP features a MPAV standard XLR connector while the C411 L provides a professional three-pin mini XLR connector that fits the body-pack transmitters of all AKG wireless microphone systems.

Hello! I'm using the 411s for years without problems. Only problem: Once the adhesive remains very long on an instrument, it leaves black remainders which I cannot get rid of? Is there any trick to remove/cleanse it without damaging the varnish/lacquer?

Is it possible to power the C411PP through an XLR-TRS converter? I'd like to use it with the Headway EDB-2 preamp. There is the option to choose from phantom power to the tip or the ring of the TRS plug. Which part should get phantom in this case?
