"One of the Best Around!"

Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
I will use this for the next two years. It has all I need right now.
Has a very natural Full sound, not thumpy or tinny. Would probably work well with a Microphone, but you don't need it.
The Volume/Sensitivity dial is useful. Would be a 10 if it had an EQ switch, like the seymour duncans.
Ease of Use
Very easy, but the manual does not explain much in terms of installation.
I have used Fishman pickups for 20 years, and they have always worked for me.
There are other pickups that will do the same job, but fishman is dependable for consistent good sound.
Manufacturer Support
Did not use support.
The Wow Factor
Nice Sleek design, not bulky or clumsy.
