Good pickup, great tones - all in all - a high recommended product!
- No noise
- Long cable
- clear tones
- cool "wood" looking design
- easy installation
- seems pretty durable
- fits most acoustic guitars but also other instruments
- at this price - really nothing!
Use it with your acoustic. At home or live. Use it for recording if you like. There's no real recepie here. It's how you like it.
The sound is clear and jangly. Output is a bit lower but personally, I like it better than the cheapy "Fishman" sys+ DI preamp from the guitar. There's much more dynamics but also more grit with the SH-20. You can also experiment with various effects at this point. I did. With pretty good results. I mean it's not always easy to control drive with an acoustic. But i sound that with this pickup i could control the drive frequencies much easier.
So for this price you really can't go wrong, just give it a go - and here's an idea! - you can mic (connect) your guitar dual outputs (one from the pickup, the other one from the piezo output) into the mixer at the same time - that should produce a marvelous effect and a pretty original sound.
HB - way to go!
Guys - Cheers!
