Good quality condenser microphone
Trevchuk, 17.10.2018
I have been using this on acoustic mandolins for nearly two years. I have the 15cm gooseneck version that allows me to locate the microphone through the soundhole and into the body of the instrument The condenser microphone works well and I get a faithful reproduction of the instrument sound although of course this is also dependent on the quality of the amplifier and other equipment used. The flexible rubber sucker attaches to both flat and arch top surfaces but struggles to support the weight of a standard output cable. This can result in the microphone head being pulled out of position or the whole apparatus pulling off the instrument. I get round this by using a clip that attaches to the instrument strap or a clothes belt and supports the weight of the dangling cable. Myers also sell a lightweight cable which seems to be aimed at solving this problem. If you are only going to use this on one instrument I would recommend looking at the other ways Myers offer for attaching their excellent microphones to an instrument such as clips and clamps.

A nightmare live!
Archiefish, 17.05.2020
The sound quality is reasonable, but oh, the feedback!!! Turn just a little fraction the wrong way (and I do mean a LITTLE bit) and it just screeches!!! Not really a viable live option - overall very disappointing.

Super für Bühne und Studio!
Cinnamon Kid, 11.03.2021
Ich verwende den Myers Pickup schon seit einigen Jahren für meine Auftritte mit Ukulele und Banjo. Die Besonderheit an Myers Pickups ist die natürliche Klangwiedergabe mittels des kleinen Kondensatormikrofons. Das Instrument klingt dadurch nicht nach Tonabnehmer, sondern genau, wie man sein Instrument eben kennt.

Klinke auf XLR funktioniert am besten.

Negativ:
- Feedback eine Herausforderung sein, je nach Umgebung und setup.
- Es gibt keine Batterieanzeige und der Batteriewechsel ist etwas umständlich.
- Nicht ideal für laute Umgebung (Bar, Restaurant), zumal das hochsensible Mikrofon alles gut aufnimmt.

Positiv:
- Sehr klein, leicht und kompakt
- Viele Möglichkeiten zur Befestigung für diverse Instrumente und Klangergebnisse
- Wunderschöner, natürlicher Klang
- Sehr sensibel
- Sensationeller Kundenservice von Myers

In dieser Preisklasse eine klare Kaufsempfehlung!

Bra till Resonator
Tord E., 27.06.2015
Jag har använt den och monterat den på min resonator gitarr. Riktade mickrofonen mot dom mindre hålen ovanför konan och kunde då micka ut med hyfsat hög volym innan rundgång. trubbadur giggs (typ pubspelning) nivå på volym. Men om jag riktade den mot hålen på kroppen utanför konan så blev det rundgång direkt. Går bra att göra vid studio inspelning men funkar inte i live situation. Har använt den på enresonator med inbyggd tesla lipstick pickup och mixat ljuden skitat till ljudet lite från teslan till förstärkare och lagt en ren signal på Myers pickupen direkt till Pa och fått fram en väldigt bra mix så det har låtit rockigare men ändå behållt mycket av det normala akustiska resonator ljudet på toppen. Myers pickupen ger ifrån sig ett bra autentiskt ljud och är behändigare att ha monterad än att till exempel micka up med en stativmick på golvet då man vill röra på sig lita när man spelar. Är en fullgod mick har en upptagning i stil med en shure sm57 skulle jag vilja påstå dock behädigare i live situation.
