This is the best I've ever used.

Comments about Fishman Ellipse Aura - Onboard Acoustic Preamp:

The Fishman aura elipse is the best sounding pickup system I have ever used and I have used several others. There are many good pickup systems out there and there are a few that still sound like they are from the 80's. I tried the systems with the micraphone but had lots of trouble with feedback, no good. I tried the soundhole mounted pickup but it was very dificult to get a good string balance and the eq range didn't go above about 14000 hertz, no good. I tried the system with sensors built into the wood but every guitar built by that manufacturer sounded the same and could only get that pickup on that manufacturers guitars. I could go on and on. I just thought it was strange there was no feedback for this item, and there should be.
