un micro de bonne qualité
i was looking for an affordable pickup to mount in a classical guitar and found this one. i'm not too keen on piezos undersaddle pickups, because despite of their dynamic, they sound too bright and metallic.
This particular pickup, placed into the body can be orientated depending on the sound you like, and most of all respect the proper characteristics of the instrument ! Also very easy to install, the mounting couldn't be quicker.
Next time, i will try it for one of my own steel strings guitar, but it's already a great discovery for the price !
MOST sound hole pick-ups will NOT work on a nylon stringed instrument, because they use magnets, that will only "pick-up" vibrations from metallic strings! I put this in my friends guitar & we played our first electric gig. I think his guitar sounded better than my stock undersaddle p.u. & we play the same brand of guitar! We plugged it directly into my board,w/out a di or pre-amp! I did use the XLR cable though. I didn't have any problems w/feedback at all!! EZ2 install!! GR8 tone! Highly recommended!!!
This incredibly affordable mic brings the actual sound of my Martin D-18GE to the audience. Without one of these, you might as well accompany yourself on a Les Paul. And from Stewmac, it got here FAST.
I installed this mic in a friends dobro, I had no problems with the installation but it takes a lot of trial and error locating the mic to get the best sound. Sounds ok but it does get feedback when trying to increase the volume. I tried the lace single coil pick-up first. It had a better sound but it hummed and buzzed to much. There's not much available for dobros that works really good and is affordable.
This mic is a great deal. Besides this, the cheapest internal mic (with adjustable gooseneck)for acoustic guitar may be fishman's blender and highlander's IP2, both of them are around 180$. So with only 49$, this is a real great deal. Much better than any soundboard pickups.
But there is a shortcut: the excessively long gooseneck (compared to fishman and highlander) will easily SHAKE when you play some percussive style on the guitar, like hitting the body as a drum, making some very noticeable SHAKING SOUND, and it's really annoying.
I don't know how to get rid of the shaking noise. The only way I guessed is to anchor the mic head with wire or something, but I never tried it. So for now, I think it is great for delicate fingerstyle play rather than percussive, heavy-strum play.
