Given how much K&K has increased their prices lately, is there any good reason to pick up the K&K vs the JJB 330?

I'll be dropping it into my Rainsong CH-PA either way.

Crickets...

Looks like the LR Baggs I was going to drop into my Larrivee Parlor has a bad pickup element. 

JJB-330 is cheaper than the stupid replacement part, so looks like I am going to experiment on the Larrivee.

I haven't heard myself the JJB330 so I couldn't give you an opinion.I'm not a fan of the K+K I find them to be hot and you need a pre-amp to calm it down.I am a fan of the Bagggs stuff.I do have a Fishman Sonitone in my Guild 12 string and I've installed it in a clients guitar.Koamons 0003V which is sitting in a local store had one installed and it sounds  wonderful.

I love K & K and so does my Larrivee guitars. Even at the new prices they are a bargain.

I have tried a 2 element JJB in a tenor guitar.  It works fine.  

It seems to me, K&K has done a lot of research and refines their products and comes up with new products, while JJB puts out pickups that look like K&K.  For my money, I'm happy to support the company that refined the design and will continue to innovate.  The Pure Mini is my preferred pickup.

And, I just looked them up and they are $99.  Haven't they been $99 for ever?

Last time I bought one they were $75.  So, I see a 33% increase in price.

The JJB was supposed to get here today.  Post office shows it delivered, but we didn't get any mail today.  So now I get the fun of driving into town in the morning and seeing if the fine folks at the Postal Storage Service can figure out what they actually did with my mail today.

Post office thinks it was delivered.  So either it went in the wrong box, or we have mail thieves again.

Jessie was kind enough to send me a replacement for the one that went missing.  Dropped it off at the shop today.

Hopefully I can get the O-01 back by the end of the week.

Got my guitar back today.

JJB sounds good.  Nicely balanced.  Possibly very slightly bass heavy, which is just fine on an O-01 as far as I am concerned.
