Sound Quality

[Perceived output level] Hotter than most under-the sadle-pickups with very good feedback resistance [Tone] Very balenced except when I use Exliers, the non-coated strings tend to be hotter. [Sonic evaluation] I use this with my Taylors going into a SWR california blonde. I often use a Nanoverb as well. It's a lot better than all under-the-sadle- pickups in terms of fighting the "plastic" sound. But there is still a certain level of plastic. It's not the magic bullet. I tend to not use the mic at all. I first thought it was cool but in the end it's so prone to feedback at anything more than a 25% blend at a gig I just end up saying "forget it". At home it adds a bit of "wood" but don't take this too seriously, putting a mic inside a guitar is not exactly a good place to get tone. Imagine recording vocals after eating a SM57 and you get the idea. I'm thinking about getting the humbucker because it's easier to get in and out of the guitar. [For which styles and positions is this pickup (un)suitable] Mostly solo acoustic fingerstlye jazz


General Comments

[Comments] I'd get the humbucker and save a few bucks if it were stolen. I'll probably add a condencer mic ( outside the guitar ) in the future to add a little wood for some gigs.
