Re: bridgeplate pickups- alternatives to K&K? (reply)
I had the I-beam and it served the purpose until I discovered the K&K. Went all in with the K&K.

Re: bridgeplate pickups- alternatives to K&K? (reply)
There are many SBT alternatives to the K&K mini, including PUTW #54 (or #27), McIntyre Feather, LR Baggs I-Beam, JJB (various) and Trance Audio M (or stereo version). There's also some non-SBT pickups which mount on the bridge...

You should also consider the LR Baggs Lyric. It is actually a mic that is mounted on the sound board. I find it to be less bass heavy than the K&K. Mike

Re: bridgeplate pickups- alternatives to K&K? (reply)
http://jjb-electronics.com/ Their 15mm versions are slightly larger and a fair bit cheaper than K&Ks but don't expect them to sound radically different. The tonal balance can be altered a little by varying the placement of the...

Re: Behringer U-PHONO UFO202 (reply)
Casework is a major part of the cost of small gadgets and that's where economies have been made: if you don't mind the cheap plastic housing, it should do the job well enough. It seems to be well reviewed on the whole and does carry a...

bridgeplate pickups- alternatives to K&K? (topic)
I do like my K&K pure mini, but I have a new guitar that is a tad darker than my usual, and I think that a bridgeplate PU with a bit more treble/ midrange response than a pure Mini would be just the thing.   I'd like to avoid an...

Re: Behringer U-PHONO UFO202 (reply)
You can get analog preamps for $10 but they don't have a USB outlet so there must be an inexpensive chip that people are using. I am not a fan of Behringer equipment but every now and then, they have the exact right product and it sounds...

Re: Amplifying an Acoustic thru a "home stero" (reply)
As GitGone said, don't use the mixer's Main outputs: the levels will be too high for the Line inputs on the hi-fi amp, making volume control over-sensitive. Feed the mixer's RCA "Tape Outs" into the amp's "Tape" or "Aux" inputs. After...

Re: Amplifying an Acoustic thru a "home stero" (reply)
The stereo option can probably be worked out, but most of the time I use headphones off my mixer (or a small ART preamp with dual inputs - both have phantom power). It eliminates any feedback no matter where I set up, and it does not...

>That mixer has a Tape output on it. I would use that to feed the stereo's aux input.< I agree. Mics that require phantom don't have low output if it isn't turned on. They have no output. >Id verify that the Aux inputs on your...

Re: Amplifying an Acoustic thru a "home stero" (reply)
Feedback is caused by the amplified sound from the loudspeakers being picked up by the microphones and then re-amplified cumulatively. The greater the number of mics and the closer they are to the speakers, the greater the risk. In...
