Sound hole P'up

Peter R. 438, 20.10.2014
This fitted great. Sturdy and almost immovable. Superb chrome finish. Attachment screws and brackets were faultlessly finished and looked very strong
My beef was the sound, second string was "way" louder than any of the other strings.
Other strings were nicely balanced in tone and volume, but string number 2 "B" string was awful loud & harsh.
I tried this p'up with a couple of different acoustic combo amps, then a couple of different acoustic guitars, tried turning the knobs to cure the problem.

Returned it in the end.

so Thomann (in their loyal and usual way) sen't me another of the same, this one has just the same problem, but these pickups look so good, I have decided to work with the problem because it could have some advantage. Sure enough, a couple of weeks onward, this loud second string & my wierd self thinking fingers, have developed a few "on the fly lead riffs" in my musical repertuagh.

So thanks again Shaller & Thomann, but I will save up for a more even sounding pickup that avoids the dreaded PP3 9 volt (or any othere battery driven) blues.

The Schaller for the sound hole

M10, 26.05.2017
Invented almost 60 years ago and still produced today in almost unchanged form, this pickup is something of a Schaller's evergreen among electro-magnetic pickups. It was originally intended for the largely solder-and-drill-less target audience of late-1950s musicians who could not afford proper electric guitars and instead cracked the steel-stringed walking clatter on Papa's tube radio, fast and without them today self-evident frame bush, preamp, onboard tuner, battery compartment and other colorful little lamp duds. Plug and play in the truest sense of the word. Curiously, it was exactly this target group of the late '50s who played their rock-around-the-sock records on devices whose pickups worked on the piezo-electrical principle, on which acoustic guitars would have to wait another 20 years before transistor technology made this possible (A Piezo-preamp in tube technology would have been about the size of a shoebox).

The Schaller 10/43 pickup best transmits the vibration of steel strings (electric guitar strings). For bronze wrapped Western Guitar Strings the customer is not really suitable. It is best to build this consumer into a guitar whose acoustic qualities are not of prime importance, or to live with sound compromises. The natural sound of a good-sounding acoustic guitar should not be expected from this pickup, and for good reason, the thing is also supplied with a fixed connection cable to discreetly discourage the buyer to drill useless holes in his good-sounding guitar The electrified final result then maybe not quite happy. Because drilling holes is easier than stuffing them. As always, here too, the customer sounds just like what makes his hand out of it. And that can be interesting.

With almost 5.5kOhm DC resistance, the consumer is imperceptibly weaker than an average Strat pickup, and comes due to the low height and the resulting limited space inside, purely by chance the sound of an acoustic guitar at least a bit closer. Lighter, thinner, and the attenuated depths reduce the best possible Aufjaulen low natural resonance frequencies from the body. The customer is above all one thing: Merciless Vintage. Old acoustic guitars like the Framus Texan or the Eko Ranger seem almost incomplete without this part today.

Point deduction is this time for the processing: The Schaller logo is, completely untypical for a Schaller product, completely decentralized arranged ... actually heaviest B-stock at normal price. Not nice at all.
