Huge disappointment

Etb-sitar, 02.05.2018
My experience with sitars and their sound goes back 12 years.

THE SOUND
5/10
I was initially happy with the sound that came out of the pick-up, seemed clear and good bass response - however to bring out the bass strings and play on the lower register I had to adjust the 'blend' option mid-performance. Another downside was that the trebles came through very harsh. (might add this is quite a normal problem with contact mics) However I feel shadow's talk about having resolved issues regarding contact mics is unfounded.

I was even less impressed with the result of recording; too much emphasis on percussive elements of the pick/scratching and the piezo quack was apparent.

DESIGN
3/10
Integrated pre-amp with pickup is a nice feature. However attaching to the kaddu (main gourd) is not good. The position suggested is uncomfortable and insecure. I wonder if they even tested it?! When I tried to remove it to send for warranty, it took off the shellac and damaged my instrument.

RELIABILITY
1/10
The worst of all was during the middle of a concert the pickup started to emit popping and crackling sounds that were coming through at full volume. These horrible sounds disrupted the concert and I had to finish my concert acoustically. This was a disaster.

SUMMARY
Overall this pickup has personally cost me time, stress and resulted in the inability to follow through with performances. Whatever positives I encountered were heavily outweighed by negatives. I am severely disappointed.

Very good value for money

Powder, 19.09.2012
Really pleasant surprise by its quality, without putting a fortune, and on this kind of product, the choice is not legion, and prices rises very quickly if you want to buy anything but rotten pellets (fwf, shaller) , Especially to avoid unless you can not afford anything else.
The + the ability to adjust the tone and balance between the two pellets, not bad, to find the right setting.
The - the case whose ergonomics to fix on the tumba (the box of resonance of the sitar), is not of the best studied.

Meanwhile for an average price, a nice sound quality.

(Otherwise, really thomann did a great job, there was no one who left an opinion on this microphone, and rather than putting a false opinion it writes me to know what I think, bravo !!! Thomman.)
