Come hither my redheaded lovely....

JDstrings, 15.05.2013
It's a classic.
An immediately usable sound on all the many basses I've tried it on. It's not exactly the just the acoustic sound but louder -it seems to pick up very little high end -but it does work really well.
At low level I've often had people think I was playing acoustically, At higher volumes (or through a big PA system) it doesn't sound as convincingly acoustic (what pickup does though?) but it does provide a usable sound and is resistant to feedback and easy to control. I have colleagues who like to use it in conjunction with a mic and blender for a 'best of both worlds' solution with very good results. (I just can't face all the extra leads/preamp/wire/transformers etc. etc. oh, and having more to carry!)
Not cheap, but then as it should last years also not expensive! Over the years the design has been modified and improved to make the pickup longer lasting and more robust. On the couple of occasions that I've dealt with David Gage they have been most helpful and courteous.

Good but it has it's sound and you may not like it

Owen M., 06.06.2014
All in all this is the best pickup I've owned (and I've owned a lot). On my bass it's slower to feedback, can get a great bouncy feeling low end elegantly stays out of the way. If you want a smooth high end definition then thats tough, it doesn't have a lot of cut and trying to get it with EQ on a bass amp reveals some wonky resonances (even with the radial piezo pre). DI'd on a recording it's ok, smooth and good lows and low mids but the subs are not too present and theres not much hope of eq-ing in higher midrange if you are after an NHOP style tone. I like how you can be sure there is the correct pressure (something that is left to chance when you use a bridge wing style pickup) but it needs a luthier to fit properly and your bridge will have to be permanently altered. It alters the acoustic sound a little but not enough that it causes trouble for orchestral stuff if that is not your main thing, and when the bass is just walking or holding down the low end at a gig it fits into a mix nicely. Long term I'll probably get a new bridge and a Wilson or Full Circle but I'm certainly getting less hassle from this compared to other pickups in the meantime.
