A very useful capturing / amplifying system

Julien181, 13.06.2011
The Shadow SH 700 NFX oud / preamp consists of:

- a nanoflex sensor placed in the loop of the strings at the easel (attention this system can be placed only on a "classic" oud, ie with a glued easel and not a floating bridge as on some modern ouds) , It connects to the preamp via a mini jack

- a preamp with volume and tone controls self-powered by a 3 volt R2032 lithium battery (supplied by the manufacturer), the whole coming to be clipped on a support coming itself to scratch on the body of the instrument thanks to a band Velcro double-sided especially effective, two input jacks, jack output

The set is relatively easy to mount yourself (no need for the intervention of a luthier, that's all about this kind of product: placement and adjustments by oneself).

Good points :

- easy installation and use
- particularly effective volume and tone controls
- simple and easy to use, personally I tried it on a compact amp AER 60 and the result is very good, although it is not comparable to an electrostatic microphone in front of the instrument but in a stage configuration where You want to avoid feedback and want to gain is ideal
- possibility of removing the preamp and its support thanks to the simple but ingenious system of the band velcro

negative points :

- aesthetic, we end up with a thread at the bottom of the case, when we have a beautiful oud it is quite frustrating
- sound, it has the default of its quality to know enough nasillard but as I wrote previously in a stage configuration where one seeks to avoid unwanted feedback and looking for gain is the compromise to do

In summary this sensor / preamp is very simple assembly and use, its performance is also very good but it is not comparable to the quality of an electrostatic microphone in front of the instrument. It is rather an electroacoustic system offering a practical compromise for musicians concerned to have an ease of play, sound and adjustments in certain contexts especially scenic.

Good pickup for the Oud with little weaknesses

Fred M., 18.11.2015
The sound of the Oud comes well over, with small weaknesses in the middle frequencies. Play sounds are transferred but quite quietly.

The processing is good. The cable is extremely thin but can be attached. Something strange is the missing compartment for the battery, but does not bother. If I do not use it I clamp the supplied piece of plastic between the contact and battery firmly (can not switch it off).

The attachment to the bridge minimizes the string position !! Therefore I have not as intended before the bridge but on the bridge the Tonabnehmen fixed. Thus, the strings do not change, except for the thin nylons strings.
