hey all.

im looking at getting a pickup for my acoustic, and am trying to decide between an active under saddle type, or the passive sound hole type. i will be using it for recording purposes, most likely plugging it straight into my m-audio fast track. my question is, will a passive (sound hole pickup) provide enough output to get a decent volume when recording? its cheaper and a lot easier than installing and under saddle pickup.

any advice would be great thanks
