    Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

    Clear sound. Easy to use. Fits easily under the strings on the saddle. No need to remove the pickup after practice of performance. (waste of time) As it sits very well under the strings.

    Pickup is the same consistency of a popsical stick. I accidentally snapped mine (not in half but like a toothpick). I put it back together and viola. It worked like a charm.

    It is very sensitive. I play a Cordoba 40R out of a Crate 30w amp. I keep my amp on 2, the low, mid, and treble at 3.5 The reverb to zero for a clean concert tone with volume to spare. I'm very happy

      Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

      I stumbled across this pickup while looking for a possible solution to amplify my classical for smaller gigs. Being a complete DIY finatic, i know full well the possible horrors that come with installing pickups, as well as the heavy cost when those modifications go south.

      that being said, this pickup was easy to install, if you can change a string you will most likely succeed. Its as simple as loosening the strings and gently sliding it over the top of the bridge, then bringing the strings back up to tension.

      the pickup came with a 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch cable, the 1/8 inch jack being on the pickup obviously. Probably the most useful thing is being able to unplug the cable from the pickup and leave it in place. If youve ever owned the seymour duncan "Woody" you will really appreciate having this option. As far as duribility goes, i plan to leave the pickup in place, it looks just fine. after all if i dropped a fishman into my guitar i wouldnt be unscrewing it every time i unplug it :)

      The sound is very natural and warm, and with a few knob turns on my amp you can dial in some pretty sweet sounds that bring out the characteristics unique to your guitar. you may want to invest in a noise suppressor to control feedback in live applications. Its very responsive and will pick up whatever vibrates it. Its a PIEZO!!!

      I think i found a great, low cost solution to mic my guitar without going overboard.

        Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

        The idea is great... But the one that I got did not work... Either there was no sound, or a big hum.. the cable connection to the transducer is neither 1/4 or 1/8 inch... Is apparently of European jack measurement... Maybe the cable was bad... But as the jack connection did not fit US specs... I decided to return it...

          Comments about Kremona NG-1 Passive Piezo Pickup for Nylon String Guitar:

          This little pick up produces very natural sound. Very impressed with the sound quality. It wasn't difficult to install as I first thought. I am sure I would do it even faster after I install it a few times. This is a great alternative to amplifying your classical guitar, where playing acoustically or with a good mic isn't an option. The best part is that there is no need to drill or modify your instrument.The wooden exterior of the pickup complements the guitar very nicely. The option to unplug the cable is great.Highly recommend this to any classical guitarist that is performing frequently.
