    A great pickup

    I'm using mine in a fender 12 string dread, permanently installed. The sound is very accurate and clear. It's not an exact replica of the guitars natural voice (no mag pickup is) but very nice regardless. The advantage is I can turn it up very LOUD before I feed back. Yes, output is weak (character of the single coil) and can be noisy (in very few situations) but I will stick to mine, it's a champ!

    Great sound hole pickup

    Tried different pickups for my 40 yr old Sigma/Martin 12 string, Dean Markey Gold sound hole, martin thine line gold under saddle and was disappointed with the sound through a pa and my Behringer Ultracoustic amp. Saw this pickup at the great price and thought why not try it. It has a great warm sound, has good balance across all 12 strings and sounds good at high or low volume.

    Works great !

    I dusted off an old acoustic Epiphone, re-strung it in Nashville tuning and put this pickup on it. The balance across the strings is good and I can get the tones I want with my amp's EQ.
    I play it through a delay/chorus pedal with very subtle effect into a clean amp and my old guitar is reborn !
    I am very happy with this pickup. Thank you,

    Very clear acoustic sound

    This is a great passive pickup for acoustic guitar. I bought to use with my Yamaha F335 and it sounded great. It captured the very best of my acoustic guitar and uses this produt for home recordings.
    It's easy to install. Just plug and play. And it doesn't hurt the guitar wood.
    The cable is long enough for any kind of gigs but don't seams to be a very good cable.

    The only problem I had was in a gig with dimmered lightning and the pickup started to make some hum noise. Altought this kind of problem was related in the manual and in the fishman's website, so I was expecting that. For those who want a more reliable pickup to live gigs should look for the fishman humbucker pickup.

    I would recommend to friends.

    Excellent value

    I purchased this to use with my Guild D25C that I've had since the '80s. I'm using it for worship in a coffeehouse setting through a Roland Cube 20. I must first say that this sounds exactly as it should. The brilliance and clarity of the Guild comes through. It does not have the volume of an electric, but when I turn up the amp to compensate there is no hum or hiss, it's quiet and noise free. Let me add that with the Cube's on board chorus and delay lightly employed, it sounds wonderful. So why a rating of only 3.5?
    The cable comes out the back of the pickup, so it sticks straight out of the sound-hole a bit, it doesn't lay flat down the body. Perhaps with age it will relax, but most of these pickups seem to have the cable designed to lay flat against the face of the ax. Also, when first installed the pickup sat too 'high'. When up past the 10th or 12th fret the strings actually laid against the pickup (high strings only). I contacted my Sweetwater rep, he offered to exchange, but I choose to play 'engineer' and was able to trim the cork padding with a single-edge blade enough to resolve the problem.
    I think this was a great value. I would buy another, and I would recommend it.

    Sounds very good, no noise. Sounds great through my Fishman Loudbox amp. The only downside is the integrated cable. If your playing but not plugged in, you have a cable dangling or you have to remove the pickup.

    pretty nice tone for an inexpensive pickup

    tone is well balanced from lows to highs and not yielding any feedback problems. The cable position is not great but manageable.

    might be my rig, which is straight into either a Yamaha THR10C or a Fender Super Champ X2, but this pickup has a very noisy, almost buzzing hum. Otherwise it sounds good, nice reproduction for a relatively cheap pickup.
