I agree with the other reviews here, I just want to add that if you have the proper expectations, then this is a good product. Firstly, you do not want to use this on a 12 string guitar because the span of the strings is too wide for the low and high E's to be picked up. Secondly, you do not want this to be your only sound source. An inexpensive sound hole pickup just isn't going to capture the brilliance and the body of your guitar.

To get the best sound from this bargain pickup, I recommend that you run it through a pedal that can boost and equalize the signal prior to amplification. Selective frequency cutting can take out the metalicness and restore the warmth. In fact, the result can be more natural sounding than bridge pickups which tend to be cold and sharp sounding.

Ideally you should use this pickup in cooperation with a microphone, with a 50/50 mix, so that you can get the volume you want without loosing the natural character.

Got this hoping for a cheap solution to plus in to a PA for open mics and shows. Sound guys will want to slap you for using this pickup. It is very quiet. You have to crank the volume on the amp/PA and even then there is no way you're gonna be heard if you're playing with other people. It produces thin, chintzy tone that just makes you look like a joke. Also, the foam that secures it in to the soundhole wore out after about 2 months. Do not get this product.

    Comments about Duncan Performer Maverick Soundhole Pickup:

    Having been a mandolin player for years, I decided to get a tenor guitar to expand my sound. Got a nice Gold Tone TG-18. It has no internal pickup, so I was looking for something reasonably priced that would fit it and sound good. It fits perfectly in the sound hole, and when I connect it to my Johnson Reptone 30W amp with 3-channel EQ, it sounds incredible...it can hold its own with the loudest dreadnought out there! Highly recommended if you're looking for an inexpensive way to amplify your acoustic guitar.

      Comments about Duncan Performer Maverick Soundhole Pickup:

      So far I cannot find anything to complain about regarding the Maverick soundhole pickup. I like that it attaches easily and securely to my guitar. It produces the right amount of sound for blending with other instruments and voice. I also like the length of the attached cord. I did have to adjust the sound level upward to produce the desired results. Hoping that it is durable and performs for a long time.

        Read all the mixed reviews on this pickup before purchasing. I could tell the bad reviews were just a bunch of whiners that didn't know what they were doing. I had this pickup on my 12 string in less than 2 minutes. It sounds fantastic. Very good price for a great product.

          Easy to install and use. I use it going through a volume peddle into the PA. This works great for performing in small venues or in church. I'm very pleased with my pickup.

          Comments about Duncan Performer Maverick Soundhole Pickup:

          This pickup has good sound. The highs are clear and the lows are good, too. I've read other reviews about this being "tinny" sounding. I disagree with this assessment, and suspect that "tinny" sound other(s) have heard, is due to the amp that they are using. I put this through a Roland cube, and play jazz through it. It sounds beautiful. If you're thinking of getting one of these, do it. I've worked with lots of different pickups. This one is definitely worth the money. I recommend this pickup.
