SHADOW SH SC1 Experience report

Simon158, 04.03.2011
I bought this pickup in 2009 because I should play in the framework of a pupil performance of the Three-Groschen Opera with about 400 spectators per performance cello and double bass and I would not have been audibly heard sufficiently.

Since the space for the band was not big enough, I should also play the bass voice with the cello. When assembling, it is important to note that the two pickups are different in thickness when you change them, it can happen that no / bare bass is transmitted and otherwise it only sounds like a tin bucket. Properly mounted can be a very beautiful almost original true sound tinker! Which would be the next topic. I play the pickup via a Line6 PodX3 Live, which gives me the sound a little pre-processing. If I want to play a bass voice I use an octaver with 2/3 of an octave lower and 1/3 two octaves lower which I then mix 1: 1 with the original signal, which creates a decent Bassfundament (Hosenbeinflattern) But be careful with low-frequency feedback.

With the Pod I distort the signal synonymous gladly. I also recommend this always with a modeling device to do, because over normal amplifiers the feedback are not to get under control. As a monitoring I would always recommend in-ear. Otherwise, normal monitors can be used to control feedback to medium-high volume in rock coverbands, along with a capable technician and good equipment. For the classical range, this pickup is also good to use without an effects device, but I have always been inclined only when I have recommended my soli amplified to play;).

The sound deserves the bottom 4 stars, as it is good but still always sounds a little electric and the corresponding relatively good sound can only be achieved with Eq's. 3 stars for the processing, as the pickup is well processed (in 2 years nothing broken) but the attachment of the jack is the purest catastrophe (Velcro tape attached with adhesive tape on the cello). 5 stars for the overall evaluation, as the pickup has an unbeatable price-performance ratio and since I bought it I have faithful services no matter in what environment.

Basic

Schizoidfox, 18.05.2011
Considering the price, do not expect an extraordinary quality. It is a simple and cheap way to sound a cello. The use is not very easy (I did not want to stick it on my cello). I made a clamp that keeps the two cells on the easel.

The sound rendered is a bit metallic and should not be expected to reproduce a classic cello sound.

If the aim is to modify the sound with effects pedals then I think it is ample enough, I tested it with a distortion pedal ... it works very well even if it looks like a guitar A cello.

In conclusion, if the quality of the sound is not a priority and you have a small budget, it is not bad to start, but if it is for a more "pro" use, it will take more expensive!
