GUEST,Ralphie Tech: guitar pickup - advice, please (27) RE: Tech: guitar pickup - advice, please 17 Jul 11


Well, all my instruments (Fylde Guitar, and Bouzouki, and Stefan Sobell Cittern) are fitted with the Fishman Dual system. Bar oickup across the soundhole and an integral High quality mic inside the body. Needs a Stereo Jack lead, and mine is fed into a "Raven" master blender pre amp. It basically splits the 2 signal paths so that you can sort out your own mix. Outpt in mono to feed to a PA desk/recording device. Total control for any situation. As reccomended by Martin Simpson (and he should know!) Shedloads of money though! The Raven on its own was 350 quid, and, the Fishmans were something like 200 each. Seriously good though. Recorded Mr Simpson for the radio a few years ago...My mics of choice were Schoepps, But had a listen to his Raven set up, and added them to the mix...Bloody marvellous. (Mind you he had a seriously wonderful guitar, and he can play a bit!)
