: Hi... i'm just wondering, have anyone here tried to install electric bass pickup on an acoustic upright? since everyone here talks about piezo pickup, i guess there's something wrong with the electric bass pickup idea. I'm asking because i wanna try to do it to my bass.

: thanks

This site is worth a look:

It's where I bought the pickup I've been using for a year or so now. It doesn't produce a particularly acoustic sound, but any sort of magnetic pickup is not really going to do that, anyway. I play in a pretty high-volume blues/roots band, and it's the only way I can compete, volume-wise. The feedback problem is essentially eliminated. And, the customer service end of things is great--Pierre Josephs, the owner of the company, processes all the orders, does all the repairs, and actually answers the phone himself. He's been great to me.

Hope this helps.
