    Default Instrument cable jack and side binding.

    I'm going to add a piezo pickup to my KALA KA-B baritone uke. The cable jack is supposed to go where the end pin strap jack is located. I have to drill a 1/2" hole which is wider than the binding between the two sides of the body.

    Are there any issues with doing this? I don't want the binding to pop off or otherwise be destroyed.

    Thanks!

    Be sure to put blue tape over any area that will be drilled. Folding a piece of paper in half is an easy way to find the center.

    What brand/model pickup are you using? I'm thinking about doing that.

    Jerry, it's a Muslady passive piezo pickup, $21 on Amazon. It mounts where the end pin is located so I already have a pilot hole. It requires a 12mm (1/2") hole. I should have it installed sometime today.

    Install complete. This is a KALA KA-B baritone uke. I'm running it into a ZOOM A1 four then into a Fender Rumble 15 bass amp. So far I'm very happy with this piezo.
