Balalaiker® Sputnik-Electro russian prim balalaika

A special electro-acoustic model of the traditional balalaika. Electroacoustics from Balalaiker are ideal for concert performances, musical experiments and instrument accompaniment at loud events. The versatile TRS 1/4 output can be connected to any combo or directly into the mixer line input. A built-in battery-powered preamplifier ensures the sound signal is stable. The unique bridge from Balalaiker with a built-in piezo sensor will retain the traditional look of the instrument, hiding the wires in the instrument body. Convenience and mobility without unnecessary wires and accessories. Balalaiker Sputnik-T is balanced in its acoustic characteristics. Created according to the impressions of old five-part balalaikas. The color scheme reflects the nature of the decoration of the balalaikas of the mid-20th century.
