Very happy with it
Check out Human Design, 31.08.2019
The dual coil / mic pickup is great to have. I haven't found anything for that price that have these options and it's one I really wanted so percussive sounds would be picked up.

Sounds good with my dreadnought plugged into an amp.

In my case the G string sounded way louder than the others. I did find a way to attenuate the effect by taping two small coins on the pick up just under the G string. After that it just seems perfect for me.

Single coil gives it that particular sensitivity / dynamics that humbuckers don't have, it's something to know (I really like that, I've never had a single coil guitar before and I think they sound really cool).

The wire is not super thick but still decent. Since it's short and just meant to be attached to the guitar and not directly on an amp, I think it's better than other options where you got a long thin cable, which seem riskier.

Obviously if you have a way bigger budget for a pickup there probably is way better out there, but in this price range this one seems really good. Let's see how it holds up in the long run.

Sounds great with my dreadnought acoustic guitar.
Comparing to SH-20, it's great to have a choice whether use mic or not. It is pretty easy to regulate the volume and the mic capture level with this pickup. And the price is reasonable.

Do not expect to much
MK23, 26.12.2019
At the time of a purchase, it cost 50 euros (give or take a few), and I needed something for my acoustic guitar to make louder I guess.
After I have done some research I decided on this product mostly because of the price and features that have. I am happy with the result and sound that I received, altho the mic that is integrated causes a lot of noise, the pickup still provides you with good sound.
But in the end if you need your tone to be steady and quality I recommend you to buy an electric acoustic guitar with fine integrated pickup.
