Thread Name: Tech: Octave mandolin pickup
Subject: Tech: Octave mandolin pickup
I just acquired a Trinity College (SAGA) flattop octave mandolin and want to put in a pickup. I'm thinking about the Fishman M-100 transducer bridge, which has a great reputation. Now, I know that bridge is made for archtop mandos. My question is: is it tall enough so I could shave the bottom flat and still have enough string clearance/action?

I'd also appreciate any other suggestions as to pickups. I have a Fishman Blender dual preamp for my guitar, and want to use it with the O.M.
