I am trying to figure out the best way to record my acoustic
so far the best way i found was through a soundhole pickup
i was going to put this in the recording section, but its more about the key to the sound
i have a taylor 314ce and i wanna capture the sound, in both my recording and playing through my amp
i cant do that whole built-in piezo pickup thing, doesnt sound good to me at all

so i ask you all, what do you think?
ive done my research and stumbled upon 3 pickups, all with different settings and parts
please vote and explain!
thanks

I have an M1 Active, but I think you'll benefit more from the para DI box. The active doesn't have tone controls, but a para will help you with that.
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

Mic it. Get a good condenser, since your recording, and mic it. Sounds tons better than a piezo or a soundhole pickup.

I have a fishman single coil, yet I much rather mic my guitar.

my mic wasnt expensive enough, and my room where i record is not superset up like a recording studio
