Title: acoustic pick-up for playing slide?
Post by: fiddlehead207 on March 15, 2009, 08:26:12 PM
i play a lot of slide on my lv-03re and i prefer the mic'd sound to the ust. i have b-band a 2.2 with the ast also. which does sound more like a mic but its still not quite right.  some of open mics i go to have great sound and some not so great with a house mic. can anyone recommend an acoustic pick-up or internal mic that sounds better for slide work? thanks. e.

My first choice would be a magnet sound hole pu, either the Baggs M1A or Fishman Rare Earth.

If you're interested, I have a mint condition DeArmond 210 soundhole pickup (the good one with six poles). It is a vintage piece that was a favourite of Lightnin' Hopkins and it will give you a down'n'dirty slide guitar sound. $200US takes it.

Google if you want to find out more information about it.
