Can't beat this price – Low Noise Guitar Pickup (290cm-Cable Length) Reviews

posted by waloo on 10/01/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Perfect as a first pickup mic
easy to install once you know how
good volume
simple design
In one movement you install it and you ready to go.
In fact it records only close vibrations so you can attach it on a violin or a ukulele (on the head) and sound will be quite good perhaps not as stong as a for a guitar
Cons:
a bit cheap plastic but pretty sturdy, for this price I guess you won't be very picky, I'm sure the sound is not good enough for a professional noise free enthusiast, but for your first album it'll be sufficient.
the cable can get on the strings so you have to be careful to put it right, the others have the same problem.
Other:
with jack/mini-jack adaptator you can connect it to your computer
Bottomline:
transform your acoustic guitar into an electric one for a dirt cheap price
