: I'm looking to buy an Underwood pickup; any leads on the web as to where I might find one? How much might I expect to pay? Wouldn't mind a trustworthy used one . . .

I'd look into the K & K Bass Max that Bob Gollihur sells for about the same price. IMHO, they are sturdier and have a cleaner sound. I used mine for jazz on a Juzek and it was much better than the Fishman it replaced. Paired with a mic and blender you can get a really acoustic versatile sound, although it sounds pretty good (providing you have an appropriate amp for doublebass) by itself. I've use mine on a couple of big outdoor gigs where a mic would be tough and got compliments on the sound. I mostly use the Schertler Dyn-B contact mic now, but I realize that it is 5x the price (worth it to me).
