"Simply the most amazing sound for the money!!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
The sound of this pickup is clear and crisp! Absolutely no humming or noise. I installed it on my Ovation deep bowl and plugged it into my Kustom amp and wow!!! If someone were in the other room, they wouldn't be able to tell if it were a soundhole pickup or a high dollar under the saddle pickup. Excellent string balance too. My guitar lost NONE of it's natural balance, tone, brightness, and clarity by plugging this in. Amazing!!
Not much as far as useful features. I mean, $70, what do you expect. Just install and plug-n-play.
Ease of Use:
Simple install. I had to remove the top cork pieces on the clamps cause my action is really low. The strings touched the pickup, but once I took the cork pieces off, I installed it and had plenty of clearance.
Couldn't rate this a 10 cause I've only had it a day. But so far, it looks to be a great piece for the money.
So far, no need
For the money, it's by far the best soundhole pickup I've heard.
The Wow Factor:
Nothing fancy or "sexy" about it. It is what it is. It stinks that the cord dangles out of the hole, but it doesn't get in my way, just looks goofy.
For what I paid, I'm not complaining yet. If it lasts 3-4yrs, I'll be happy and probably buy another one.
