Thread Name: Acoustic Guitar Pickup
Subject: RE: Acoustic Guitar Pickup
Thanks to Mr. Bridge for pointing out that my music sounded like crap--I can't imagine how I squeaked by on so many occasions without anyone noticing--
Perhaps our American audiences are less discerning than those that he is accustomed to, or perhaps the singer that I accompanied distracted them from my playing--
I was under the impression that Mr. Duncan's pickup was clean, crisp, and responsive over the full range of my instrument, and that it allowed me to play rhythm and blues and jazz accompaniments and still have the chords ring clear, rather than having them deteriorate into box noise, as so often happens when an amplified acoustic guitar is used alone.
I stand corrected.
