This pickup is well worth the money!
I have been using this pickup for about a year now on my double bass, running it through a Cube 30 Bass Amp. Most of my work with it has been in the theater pit orchestra, and I can shake the walls without losing sound quality. I placed it on the back side of the bridge and it is live! Also tried it on a uke: was told to turn it down, it rode over the orchestra.
