I need a bass pick up. I need to import one for my presission acoustic bass.
Can you tell me about the web page of best pick up?
Thanks and regards


: : I know this has been covered before, but I want to do it right the first time! I'm impressed with the realist's claims, but what about its durability over the years? I have SVT 100 & 350 combos for amps now, a thin 3/4 Czech thats about 250 years old & a 1936 Alfred Meyer fully carved 3/4 & another German carved top about the same age. I've play locally in swing & Big band for 30 years with my Fender's but have been playing a lot of acoustic gigs lately, and would like to include doghouse to my louder gigs. I've used the Barcus years ago without a preamp so it wasn't acceptable. I need to play loud enough to stay with over enthusiastic horn sections. Also now I use Orchestra Spiro-cores and the "E" does'nt have the acoustic volume of the other strings on all my basses. All advice much appreciated. Booger

: I've tried numerous pickups and combinations of pickups but found the K&K Double Big Twin to be the best of them all for the music I play (Jazz, Rock-a-billy and Blues). I run it through a Fishman B-II preamp into a Fender Bassman with 2 12" Jensen speakers and it very good. Contact Bob Gollihur for details. He's great to work with.
