Alright, so I need to put a pickup in my Larrivee L-05 acoustic. I've narrowed it down to two pickups with preamps/DI's from there corresponding company. First up we have

The K&K sound Pure western Mini with passive volume wheel partnered with There Pure XLR Preamp/DI box

VS

The LR Baggs iBeam Active partnered with there ParaDI Preamp/DI box



Wich do you guys think?
Where the hell did slide guitar go!?!

I think the K&K might give you a better sound.

Here's a website that compares these pickup systems.
http://www.dougyoungguitar.com/pickuptest.htm

Instead of comparing each pickups to each other, compare them to the Neumann mic. Each pickup is played on a different guitar, so comparing which one sounds better between two systems won't be accurate. Decide for yourself which one sounds more natural.

If you have some high definition headphones, I suggest you pull them out. Speakers won't show all the subtleties that you can hear through really good headphones.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ
