Cheap, cheerful but break.
15.10.2015
I've had 2 of these and both have broken in the same place, I've re-soldered them but the breaks are in awkward places! and the length of the cable doesn't allow for many re-soldering attempts.

The sound is pretty good for a cheap piezo pickup, but still needs a lot of EQ-ing for it to sound anything near a double bass. Maybe it'd pair well with a good mic, but I'd suggest spending a little more money and getting a better pickup.

Warm and even sound - but beware of humming
12.09.2015
I have a 5-string double bass and the Shadow SH950 pickup. It reproduces the acoustic tones quite evenly and with a warm, woody tone. Combined with a GK amp MB-112 it really speaks out.

I have have now got the repair shop at Thomann engaged to fix the buzz or humming problem that comes after a while using this model.It is the second time around for this problem.

I feel that The Underwood pickup is far better than Shadow - notwithstanding the same pickup principle - the Underwood is more durable and stable.

Next time i will go for a microphone solution with a swan neck mounted on the tailpiece instead.
