I bought this one for my Parlour acoustic and cant fault it in any way. Easy to fit (in seconds) and soundwise perfect. Thomann service ,as ever brilliant right down the line.

a good product, good quality, low signal level, the wire is a little thin, but in principle everything suits me, except that in addition to the price I think it would cost less it would not be so sorry for the money

Not worth it
17.06.2014
I purchased this pickup for my cheap acoustic guitar, whose passive electronics were very low-quality. Unfortunately, this Seymour Duncan pickup was not what I was expecting.
First of all, it is very inconvenient that it comes with an non-detachable cable, as this does not allow to play standing any place you want to - you always need to be somewhere near the DI-box, amp, or anything you use to get the sound from.
The pickup itself provides a very weak output level, and does not sound like an acoustic guitar; the sound is very mushy and bassy.
After some playing with this pickup I got disappointed and ended up buying a new acoustic guitar with better active electronics, and this pickup now just sits on a shelf.

Systembedingte Eigenheiten, aber sein Geld wert
Werner856, 19.08.2014
Der Schallloch-Pickup Woody SA-3HC von Seymour Duncan ist einfach zu installieren und hält sehr gut im Schallloch. Auch die Ausführungsqualität läßt keine Wünsche offen. Die Kabellänge ist ausreichend bemessen. Der Einsatzzweck: zwei knapp 40 Jahre alte Eko Ranger (6- und 12 saitig) ohne Beschädigung amptauglich machen.

Zum Sound:
Wenig Störgeräusche (Vertikalhumbucker), kräftiger Output und durchaus präsente Höhen. Aber:

Unsere Hörgewohnheiten sind entweder auf den akustischen Natur-Ton einer Stahlsaiten-Gitarre oder eben den sattsam bekannten Piezo-Klang geprägt. Ein Magnet-PU, noch dazu ein Humbucker, weicht von diesen eingeprägten Mustern natürlich erheblich ab. Das soll nicht heißen, daß dieses System schlecht funktioniert, allerdings ist der "Naturklang" des SA-3HC etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig - soll heißen, es schlägt schon eine ordentliche Portion E-Gitarre durch, besonders in den Mitten. In meinem speziellen Fall kommt die h-Saite (bei der 6-saitigen) besonders stark zur Geltung. Das kann man mögen, oder auch nicht. Die 12-saitige Gitarrenversion klingt etwas ausgeglichener (und lauter, weil mehr magnetisierbare Masse schwingt).

Ich für meinen persönlichen Geschmack kann mich mit dem SA-3HC durchaus anfreunden, soferne ein EQ nachgeschaltet ist, der den Klang einigermaßen in Richtung Naturklang zu modellieren imstande ist. Das bedarf einiger Spielerei, auch in Bezug auf die Positionierung des PU im Schallloch, bringt aber akzeptable Ergebnisse, aus meiner Sicht besonders bei der 12-saitigen Gitarre. Der Klang ist dann zwar eigenständig und nicht alltäglich, aber durchaus gut.

Der größte Vorteil ist natürlich, daß dieser PU leicht, schnell und sicher anzubringen ist, und - mit EQ - durchaus brauchbare Sounds erzeugen kann. Der Humbucker läßt sich aber nicht verleugnen. Für die 6-Saitenversion der Eko werde ich mir wohl einen Single-Coil PU (Dean Markley Pro Mag) anlachen müssen, obwohl ich befürchte, einen höheren Geräuschpegel bei vergleichbarer Nutzlautstärke in Kauf nehmen zu müssen.
