Re: K&K Mini pickup .......... is a K&K preamp also necessary? (reply)
K&K's Pure XLR preamp may be a good option when going direct to a pa mixer, Richard, but an unnecessarily complex and expensive one when using an acoustic combo as a backline monitor: you'd be paying for additional controls and...

Thanks, Kev. I'll try all the different combinations and see what's best. Worse comes to worst, it does sound like the K&K preamp is a good option. Right now, I find that most open mikes I attend, the K&K is fine (since...

Re: K&K Mini pickup .......... is a K&K preamp also necessary? (reply)
An input impedance of 180 KilOhms is lower than the recommended load for the K&K Passive of 1 MegOhm and should have the effect of reducing its bass output to some extent, not boosting it. However, it's odd that only this one value...

I have a Stagg 40AAR acoustic amp I bought to help out a local mom n pop store. Nice amp, seems popular in Europe for a budget. I had never heard of it, but the guy needed a boost. Very clean sound, btw, but no frills. It has a...

Re: Amp newbie questions... (reply)
Leo Fender was once asked what the flat response setting is on a typical amp. His answer was that a Fender amp is part of the musical instrument and that 'flat' didn't exist.

Looks like the Sedona 55 is no longer available but there's now a Lite version which is a grand... uh, cheaper. These models illustrate the differences between the two types of amp and their prices show just what it takes to produce a...

Re: Less Stuff to Carry...Can I condense things? (reply)
I note that MartinPlayer has suggested using the Bose ToneMatch 4 channel mixer which I concure.  You can also add the Bose L1 Compact to use with the Tonematch as your PA/Amplifier.  "The Baby Bose" as I like to call it can be used in...

If you've got the money, there's always this: http://www.rivera.com/index.php/products/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=142 Beyond that, I agree that you'll want an acoustic combo (or small PA set up) for the...

Re: Amp newbie questions... (reply)
Agree that separate/dedicated acoustic & electric amps are "best". If I could only have 1 amp, I'd rather have my '64 BF Deluxe Reverb for both than use the AER acoustic equip I have. Acoustic gtrs with pickups sound "better" to my...

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...

Re: bridgeplate pickups- alternatives to K&K? (reply)
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...

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...
