i am a bigger believer in acoutic amplification. i love maplifying everything my uprigth bass acoustic bass and acoustic guitars ukes u name it and for an overall decent pickup its pretty nice. i also really like the fact taht it has teh volume control on it
The best thing you can say about an acoustic guitar pickup is that it makes your acoustic guitar still sound like one after you run it through an amp. This pickup does just that. You will be up and running within 5 minutes of unpacking the pickup, and you'll be pleased with the excellent tone. Not boomy, not tiny, not buzzy. Just right.
I connected to an effects box first, and sent the sound from that to my stereo at home. I have four speakers and it sounded great. I had it serviced at a music shop to extend the life, but now it's got a short and I just want something better. I used it with a small Pevey for a crowd of 50, a Beringher amp for 150-200 people, and through a P/A system. I like it, but I'd have to keep buying it over & over again as they wore out. I want to play Xmas music as a volunteer Bell-ringer during the holidays, and I play at a church and a small chapel.
It's a good pickup for the price. I bought it, because I do a lot of traveling and I didn't want a really expensive pickup. It's great for that. I go camping with a Yamaha Acoustic, and I use this pickup with a little battery powered Marshal MS-2 or Roland MicroCube amp. It does just fine. It's not something for big preformances or even gigs (even though it might work for a gig). But it would work for practicing and rehersal.
I have used this pick up on a Bushman Soprano Uke in a public venue and got away with it. It was plugged in to the house PA system and sounded alright. It certainly made my ukulele sound louder than I've ever heard it before! I also use it at home with a cheap Drive CD100 practice amp. That combo works OK, too.
I use this pickup with a Harmony 6 string acoustic guitar, and am barely satisfied with it. No matter what the amp and pickup settings, the sound quality is terrible, even for my untrained ear. It works, but that's about all I would say for it. JW
it sounds crappy, looks almost as crappy, and produces some of the most hidious sounds i could ever imagine.
