Hey guys,

Got myself an ok acoustic, would love to add a pickup to it. What is the Iron Gear equivalent in the acoustic pickup market?

Cheers

It rolls off the deep resonant tones and mids and top end are stellar. In a band situation with other instruments this is a sound techs best friend. For solo acoustic work, I like a Baggs ribbon transducer.

That's the one I use. There is also the more recent M80, a somewhat different sound apparently, but not necessarily better.

The M1 Active is very bright, but that isn't a problem if you can just adjust the amp to suit. I was using several different guitars through the same amp, and found it useful to put a passive treble-bleed tone control across the pickup output.

Alexander.d, if you decide to go with a soundhole pickup of some kind, I would urge you to get one with adjustable pole pieces. Good string-to-string balance is harder to achieve with acoustic strings than electric ones, so being able to adjust the output of individual strings to your liking could be a big plus.
