: Currently I use the Underwood pickup to amplify my acoustic bass but I miss the percussive and direct sound (like the Ampeg Babybass). What pick up will be the best for Latin (Cuban Son) music. I was thinking of a coil-pickup, like a bassguitar and mix it with the Underwood signal. Does anyone have similar experience?

If you enter the homepage of Ampeg or Azola you will find a pick-up system especially made for cuban music.
I donŽt know if it works on an acoustic instrument but youŽll find it on the solid instrument "baby bass".
For an acoustic bass I can recomend a pick up system that is called "the realist".
I play cuban music myself, if you know anything about where I can buy a "babybass" please contact me.
