Thread Name: Acoustic Guitar Pickup
Subject: RE: Acoustic Guitar Pickup
Seymour Duncan Perfect Timbre is the best pickup I've used. It super glues to your bridge plate, has an onboard preamp attached to the neck block and puts out very natural sound at reasonable volume levels without feedback (I always use a sound hole cover). I've been using it in my old Lowden for about 12 years and never had a problem with it. I've heard it out in the audience a number of times and it always sounds like a good acoustic guitar. I think it costs about $125 nowadays.Good luck.
(I did use a Sony lapel mic once on a local TV show before a small audience in a studio and the sound quality was amazing.)
