The Rare Earth active has a preamp. That's what you needed as you now know. If you want the full range of that (or any mag) pickup, do not use bronze strings. Use a nickel, nickel plated steel or stainless steel strings. D'Addario makes...

I appreciate the input and opinions, everyone.  I decided to go with a Fishman  Rare Earth; just installed it and I am very pleased with the sound through the loud box.  Lest anyone be interested, I have the m1a listed here for sale.This...

You could also try using a pre amp of some kind. Sometimes having tone shaping controls that are more than bass, mid, treble, can make the amplified sound pleasing to your ears. I have the Fishman loudbox 100 and I can not believe how...

Re: Loudbox Artist freq. response (reply)
Both of the Fishman Rare Earth models are Active types, i.e. with inbuilt battery-powered preamp: if you want to try a Passive version, then you'd have to look at their Neo-D models. The reason I suggested the Blackstack is because it's...

Re: Loudbox Artist freq. response (reply)
Thank you for the enlightening replies.  I'm wondering if a passive sound hole pup might be a better choice with the loud box.  Maybe something along the lines of the Fishman rare earth?  I have a Taylor 410e with an under-saddle pup...

Omeagerman/Kev Many thanks for the response. Sorry i've not been back on for a little while to reply ( more blood transfusions needed so in Hospital for a while). I thought the Headway looked the best option and very glad that you seem...

Re: K&K Trinity Pickup vs ?????: Your Opinion (reply)
Well, there can't be many people who still believe in the existence of that mythical pickup which reproduces "my guitar only louder": if there are, they're deluding themselves. An external condenser mic comes closest to that ideal, but...

Re: Loudbox Artist freq. response (reply)
The Loudbox could hardly be more different from the Blues Jr: they're like chalk and cheese and there's no way to make the former sound remotely like the latter. The tonal balance of the Loudbox is also definitely on the bright side of...

K&K Trinity Pickup vs ?????: Your Opinion (topic)
I am getting closer to pulling the trigger on an Eastman dread, most likely either an E20SS or E10SS model. I’m planning on buying used vs new, since these seem to come up fairly regularly, and I’m not hung up on perfect cosmetics. I’m...

Loudbox Artist freq. response (topic)
I recently got a Loudbox Artist, and like the size, weight, and portability of it.  There seems to be a problem with the frequency response of the output, favoring more of the high and mid range of the guitar.  I use it with my d28 and a...

Are there any other good cheaper brands that gives a natural sound? Maybe JJB ? Tony Phillips (Tonguy) is a fan.

Re: Recording a Martin OM(18v) at a Studio (reply)
My own preference for recording acoustic guitar is to place a couple of small diaphragm condensers in X/Y setup about 18" from the neck / body joint of the guitar. I find that this gives a realistic soundstage. Spaced mic techniques...

Re: Boss AD-3 (reply)
Of those four and indeed of all you've considered so far, the Headway EDM-1 is without question the one I would choose. With its selectable input impedance, it is well matched to the JJB on its "Active/Low" setting and is refreshingly...
