Default help with pick up part

Where can I get the piezo that goes under the saddle for my ovation deluxe? Mine got broke,I can't seem to find a replacement piece. It's just the flat metal with a wire on it.

I'm not sure what it's really called.

that part is the piezo sensing element - there is a piezoelectric ceramic material encasing a pair of conductors. It usually looks like a flat wire or a teeny tiny piece of coax.

They are very inexpensive but quality varies wildly.

You can pick one up at any parts store like parts plus or stewart mcdonald

I still haven't been able to find what I need. No one seems to sell them. Can anyone tell me where I can buy one ?

Maybe it's too late now but I recommend ditching the UST and go with a bridgeplate soundboard transducer. Both K&K and JJB are installed in thousands of instruments around the world.

Al at Lost Art Vintage Instruments will be able to take care of you with what you need or he can recommend the best alternative replacement.
