hi i just purchased an OMV-03R  Larrivee. I think I know the answer but is it a safe bet that the k&k will work [installation wise ] for this guitar ? I have one in my Martin om28 and like it with a preamp . Thanks .

They are the only pickups I'll install in a guitar that belongs to me.

Just curious, what kind of preamp do you use?
I also like the pure mini.

Other than the obvious downside of often requiring either an external pre-amp or DI box, I really do like the sound out of the K&K.

The JJB 330 is another good option.  I really can't tell the difference between the JJB and the K&K

I’m also considering a K&K. I’ve heard some people say you don’t need a preamp, but from other posts it sounds like it helps/is needed? I saw that K&K also offers a preamp on their website.  Other than volume, any big reason to use a preamp?

My experience...  going into a decent acoustic amp (Ultrasound, AER, Fishman, etc.) no preamp is needed, but they do give local (i.e. fingertip) control of eq and volume.  Usually, going into an Ultrasound AG50, I set eq and volume on the amp and all is fine.  Actually, the AG50, a K&K equipped guitar, and a decent dynamic mic (Shure SM58 or Audio OM5) and I'm set for a solo open mic.  Going into a mixer or typical electric guitar amp, an external preamp is a necessity.  The K&K Pure Preamp, Red Eye, or Baggs or many other 1-5Mohm input preamps are great.

My experience, as well.
But hey, try it w/o the pre-amp. Maybe you'll be pleased and that's all you'll ever need. Otherwise, the pre-amp will still be available to you.

This has been my experience, too... and the JJB is cheaper...
