Discrete preamp for Classical Guitar
MickM, 23.08.2018
I Successfully fitted a Shadow NFX EP-C preamp and pick-up to my practice Classical guitar.
As an improving guitar student I wanted to review and critique my practice sessions objectively.
I liked the un-intrusive location of the pre-amp; where a strap button might normally fit. I was impressed by the quality of the sound from the pick-up which performed well after I set up the guitar to compensate for the additional 1mm height at the saddle.
Shadow rightly recommend a professional installation is best.
I do have good DIY skills so I did install it myself and found the instruction sheet very clear and accurate. I have noted that my guitar now has improved tone.
I add EQ control using a Fishman platinum stage DI into an analogue mixer where I record the output. I also successfully used a low cost passive DI although, as expected, the Fishman did sound much better.
I now use the preamp to record my practice sessions; it makes reviewing and analysing my work much easier and helps me identify and focus on discrepancies. For example it is easier to hear variations in volume, timing, tone and musicality.

Overall I am very pleased with my new pre-amp and would recommend it.

Shadow support is very good and I was able to register for extended warranty of 5 years.

Soundkünstler mit kleinen Schwächen
Thomas M. 603, 19.03.2013
Grundlage für eine Kaufentscheidung sind bei mir - neben den preislichen Aspekten - immer auch die Bewertungen anderer Nutzer und Testberichte. Diese Kombination hat den Ausschlag gegeben, mir für meine Konzertgitarre den Shadow anzuschaffen. Gestern bestellt, heute im Briefkasten.

Und was soll ich sagen: der Shadow hält, was er verspricht - er klingt richtig, richtig gut!! Der charakteristische Sound einer Konzertgitarre wird sehr authentisch wiedergegeben, und es ist tatsächlich so, dass man förmlich das Holz der Decke schwingen hört. Aber genau da liegt leider auch ein kleiner Hund begraben: die Gitarre wird extrem Feedback empfindlich, und trotz Feedback Buster muss man Verstärkung und Sound sehr behutsam einstellen und vor allem mit Monitorboxen aufpassen.

Wenn man diesen Bogen aber mal raushat, dann hat man in Verbindung mit einer guten Gitarre mit massiver Decke ein tolles Setup für die Bühne. Wegen der Feedback-Empflindlichkeit aber leider einen Punkt Abzug beim Sound.

Super Sound, leichter Einbau
Steffen K., 10.10.2009
Der Pickup hat einen super Sound, der Einbau ist extrem einfach genauso wie die spätere Bedienung. Ein super Future ist die mitgelieferte Batteriebox. Alles in allem: Ein super Pickup für wenig Geld!

Absolut authentische Klangreproduktion.
LorenzR, 11.06.2013
Bin sehr zufrieden. Obwohl ich den Shadow Tonabnehmer nur provisorisch für ein Instrument benutze, für den er eigentlich nicht gemacht ist. Der beste akustische Tonabnehmer, den ich kenne!
