Greetings Folks!  Haven't been around here much lately... Work, family, gigging have all been taking more time and leaving little for forum stuff...

Hope you're all doing well and had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!

I recently acquired my first resonator guitar, a Whipple Creek '35 Gibson Trojan copy with all solid mahogany. Single cone and  biscuit bridge. What pickup do you recommend for the warmest and most natural sound?  Been looking a K&K and Shatten NR-2, but I know there's a lot more out there.  Any suggestions? What are you using?

Probably not hum-bucker or single coil. On-board volume a plus, so I can make same level as my other non-reso guitars.

Thanks!
David

Hey there bud...Fishman sells a passive pickup that mounts to the underside of the biscuit screw.No controls but was a decent sounding pu.I'm not sure if they still make it.

Thanks Unclrob and rosemusic. Talked to Steve Olson at Eldery. He pioneered a new pickup that was recommend to my by a luthier here in town.
