"Yes. Excellent. We actually use a pair of Fishman SA220's (SoloAmps) for 90% of our gigs these days, though. Similar circuits. Excellent dispersion, plenty of power (2 X 220w), nicely portable (back saver!) and in addition to the 4 mic/DI…"
"My wife has a custom Martin OM-42 with a red spruce top. It is a few years old now and has opened up nicely. It has good 'cut' and volume-wise is very good. Louder than some dreads, but not louder than all dreads. The main difference is…"
"As a matter of interest, we did quite a large outdoor gig here last night, in a city park. We used my Breedlove D/SRH prototype with a Baggs Element into a Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and our Martin OM-42 custom (Red spruce top) with a Thinline pickup…"
"I think one issue is that there are so many different guitar + PU + Pre + PA combinations involved, so what works for one, may be poor on another. For example, a light fingerstyle player using a guitar with a cedar top is going to get very different…"
"I had two separate guitars with K&K's in and was not happy with either (a D-18GE and a D16). They were both used via a Baggs Para DI (which is a nice box of itself). To date, the best results I have had have been with UST pickups via…"
"1950 D28 - unusual example with Englemann top
1945 D-18 (Kenny Smith really liked this one when he tried it)
1939 D-18 (one of the last 1 3/4 neck examples)
and.. my main performing guitar these days, Prototype no. 2 of the Breedlove Roots D/SHR.…"

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More
I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
