Great pickup - make it even better!
byrock, 28.03.2021
This pick up is very good in it’s class and I don’t have too much to add to the comments which are already done here.
I’ll try to find the solutions for the ‘contras’ mentioned and get some ways to overcome them.
1. Some people complains about the cable which seems not of very good quality to them. Some folks complains about the fact that the cable can’t be detached, or ‘unplugged’ from the pickup itself.
The reasons are very simple and explainable I think.
First of all, any guitar cable of good quality is comparable in price with the price if this recent pickup. Isn’t it?
Suggestions could be the following. You can cut the cable leaving some 0-30 cm ‘tail’ which could be equipped by female 3.5 mm (cable type) jack socket.
Please don’t buy the cheap ones – any jacks by Sennheiser, Swithcraft, Neutric are fine. Preferably with the screws so you never lose the electric connection…
Then you can choose any guitar cable you like and replace one of the 6 5 mm standard jacks with a small one, 3.5 mm jack which fits the socket you’ve installed.
Then you don’t need to wrap your guitar with cables – just unplug the long part and leave the short one inside your guitar.
2. Some buyers complains about the situation when the height of pick up gets to high after it’s installation, so the strings lays down right on a pickup making the playing impossible.
Suggestion: The pickup’ holders are equipped with gaskets made of cork, to exclude damage of coating of the guitar top or the upper deck, if you wish. Thickness of cork is about 4 millimeters. You can replace the cork’s upper parts of the gaskets with a softer material - polyurethane foam or something similar. You can even put pieces of thin velvet or corduroy instead. Then we can decrease the height and opportunity to lower the pickup by 2-3 millimeters down. The screws shouldn’t be tighten too strong – just to keep pick up on its place and make no mechanical noises. That’s it. Have fun!

Great and affordable acoustic guitar pickup
Fer.ta.h, 12.12.2019
This pickup sounds how you would imagine a single-coil pickup to sound on an acoustic guitar. The sound is clear, has a nice bottom end and warm mids. The signal is healthy, not too low or too hot.
Acoustic guitar playing isn't something that I do regularly but I needed something cheap that will do the job for the gig that I had. I pair it with Behringer ADI21 and I was surprised by the sound a got for 50€!
The only downside of it is the jack plug. It is low quality molded jack. That's why I rated it with 2 stars for the quality.
I think that I will probably drill a hole in my guitar and put a female jack and then just connect it with a regular jack cable to the amp/pedal that I'm using. That way I can get rid of the cheap molded plug it comes with.

One of the best
scem, 24.02.2020
I use it with my takamine acoustic guitar. I do not perform in the gigs or something, but i can tell that it is really good product that can make your acoustic guitar sound so good. I plug my guitar to my amp and adding reverb and delay on it it is so good together.

pros and cons

pros, it is simple to put in your soundhole you just need a screwdriver to make it tight on your soundhole and thats it ! sounds good and clear very clear !

cons - the only thing is cable lenght is short but if you have your amp next to you if you perform in a gig or smthn thats not a problem .. if you will walk with your guitar on the stage you may need to make extension to your cable.

Fishman Neo-D
Mark9037, 03.06.2014
I've had this soundhole pickup for many years now and found it to be a useful tool for acoustic recording. I've never used it live.

The Neo D doesn't need a battery (big plus) and has a nicely designed mounting method - two padded grips slot onto the edge of the sound-hole, which you then tighten with a couple of screws. No damage to the guitar, the mount is secure and it's quick to fit and remove.

The sound is clear and accurate, a wee bit brittle at the top end , but the low end is captured really well. This is an honest, dry and detailed capture of your guitar sound and it can appear harsh to those used to a more flattering way of recording.

Judicious use of EQ and compression post recording can tailor the sound from anywhere between tight focused finger-picking and washy strumming. The point is, if you get a good source recording, you're 90% of the way there and the Neo-D is a great and affordable way to get that.
