so i just wanna mess around and record my acoustic on the computer and i was wondering wat kind of pickup should i get .. right now im just using a computer microphone and its ok .. but i have the usb to 1/4 jack and i was thinking a pickup would sound better .. what do you guys think i should get .. the cheaper the better .. i dont need the best of the best
A condenser microphone would be best. If you're just using a computer microphone then you arent getting much quality. Condensers will give the truest sound to your guitar. If your guitar sounds good, then do it some justice by using a condenser mic instead of a pickup.
Try a Blue-Ball mic. It's $100, so I don't know if you consider that cheap. I know it works damn well though.
A nice condenser mic would be much better than pickups.
