THE BEST

I had this pickup on my 'wish list' for a long time before ordering it. I waited under the assumption 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. This pickup is replacing a similar pickup (a microphone combined with a single coil), and this is so much better.

I usually take care of new purchases with the idea that if it's not exactly what I want, I'll send it back. But this one I knew was a keeper straight away.

I was already used to having a pickup wired in stereo, so I was perfectly setup to test everything out. What is also really great is that it ALSO works with a MONO jack, which is so much more flexible!

It will be a while before I'm able to test this onstage, but the main reason I got it now is because my previous pickup system was getting some humming - fine for most gigging situations, but really annoying for the live streams that I'm doing at the moment. This is a great system for a 'proper' live show, as the hum bucking pickup can be sent to the monitor, and the hum bucker combined with the microphone can be sent to front of house, so there's very little chance of feedback, even at high volume! With my previous pickup, I could play in a full band with no issues. Can't wait to go onstage again!

In summary, it sounds great, and the volume can go really high without unwanted noise or feedback.

ottimo

My favorite system after many attempts. Solid performance, hot output- I installed it on my Martin 00018. Very easy to install with no need of a tech.
Even a tiny bit of mic signal blended in does make a difference (I typically use 30-40% and 70-60 magnetic), but I must say I was already a fan of the non-blend version. While being cardioid, the mic may pick loud external noises (e.g. loud wind instruments and the likes), as expected, but this is a non issue if you play solo gigs obviously, and if you play with others that minimal component is practically a non issue as well, because it is so quiet anyway with respect to that external source's own amplified signal.
For live/rehearsals use this is a fantastic tool.

Great sounding pickup!
PV5150 17.04.2020
I can really recommend this pickup to everybody looking for a neutral sounding pickup. The magnetic part creates a really warm sound and when you blend the mic with it you're in tone heaven. Really clear and articulate. No horrible piezo sound, so I'm a big fan of this pickups. Also the (great) soundguys I work with say its the best amplified acoustic sound they ever heard. No brainer. Very easy to install also.
