Piezo pickup for musical instruments 1. The pickup was fixed with cellulose tape on the "line telephones" membrane. 2. Or the pickup was just held between forefinger and thumb, another part of the hand contacting the vibrating line. The line tones need sometimes considerable dampening.... they can be VERY loud... 3. To hear the whole sound of the "ensemble", an acoustic microphone was used.http://www.windmusik.com/html/soundex.htm
