This active coil pickup sounds really truthful to the Bouzouki sound. I am very pleased with the sound quality. However the installation is very tricky if your instrument's fretboard comes right down to the soundhole. I had to make a special wooden mount in the soundhole in which to screw the pickup on to.

Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
