Wood snicker picker!
Hrks, 25.04.2020
Good pickup, great tones - all in all - a high recommended product!

pro's:
- No noise
- Long cable
- clear tones
- cool "wood" looking design
- easy installation
- seems pretty durable
- fits most acoustic guitars but also other instruments

con's:
- at this price - really nothing!

Use it with your acoustic. At home or live. Use it for recording if you like. There's no real recepie here. It's how you like it.

The sound is clear and jangly. Output is a bit lower but personally, I like it better than the cheapy "Fishman" sys+ DI preamp from the guitar. There's much more dynamics but also more grit with the SH-20. You can also experiment with various effects at this point. I did. With pretty good results. I mean it's not always easy to control drive with an acoustic. But i sound that with this pickup i could control the drive frequencies much easier.

So for this price you really can't go wrong, just give it a go - and here's an idea! - you can mic (connect) your guitar dual outputs (one from the pickup, the other one from the piezo output) into the mixer at the same time - that should produce a marvelous effect and a pretty original sound.

HB - way to go!
Guys - Cheers!

Great for live gigs and quick demos
Bryan R. , 24.03.2021
I own a similar product, the Dean Markley Promag, for my other acoustic guitar, and I wanted a second one for my guitar with Nashville tuning. I must say, "I am diggin' it!"

I use the TrueTone SH-20 for live settings and to record demos quickly when I am not in the opportunity to set up three mics and do a full soundcheck. It is an easy way to get what's in your mind, through your interface, into your computer.

The sound is "acoustic-ish" and pretty similar to the cheaper Fishman pickup sets; however, you have to realize that you will not get a "true" acoustic sound out of a device like this.

It is nice and it does what it is supposed to do.

Берите смело, не пожа&#108
Uklein, 18.05.2020
Нормальный звукосниматель, аналог Seymour Duncan Woody SC SA-3SC только за вменяемую цену.
По звуку понравилось что он не звенящий, не режет ухо. Звук получается тёплый и немного приглушенный, напоминает запись динамическим микрофоном с большого расстояния.

Минус это кабель, видимо в качестве экрана в нем используется фольга которая не плотно сидит. Из -за чего ели его шевелить то возникает микрофонный эффект и усилитель уходит шуршащий звук.

Simple and effective
graymac, 23.04.2020
Couldn't be easier to use, and no drilling / sawing / hammering the precious guitar.
I thought the sound was very good. No feedback problems and it's warmer than the piezo options. Decent length lead, should be adequate for most purposes. Nice metal jack plug, rather than the plastic sort that some items are provided with.
I'm using this with a 12 string and it's absolutely fine.
