K&K says the Pure Western Standard is better suited for a 12-string than the Mini. It costs about $40 - 50 more. Does anyone have experience with both, or recommendations regarding the 12-string? Will the Mini suffice or is K&K correct and the Standard will be better because it has larger pick-up heads?

I have the mini in my 12-string and it seems to work quite well. I run it through the XLR pre-amp and get plenty of bass. If I had another 12-string I might try the  regular pickup.
The XLR pre-amp gives me plenty of adjustability.

I have the mini in mine as well, that was what K&K recommended at the time. I have no complaints. It works OK without the preamp and really comes to life with it!
