i like this pickup better than my fishman that installs by being wedged into the bridge foot's opening. using the mighty mini, the sound is more even across the whole range of the instrument. the only inconvenience is that if the mini max is installed but not in use, what do you do with the cable? i'll figure it out - wind it up and stick it under the shoulder rest, or keep taking it off whenever it's not in use. also, i have to check every time to make sure the sound guy doesn't leave the adapter in the PA when unplugging me. as long as i remember to check, it's ok. why not make this pickup with a regular output jack since isn't that what most people need? but despite these 2 minor incoveniences, this pickup is worth it because it sounds better. evenly amplifies across the whole range of the instrument.

This i have found to be a really nice pickup...i have a very excellent cello set up, (France, 1919) and was always concerned about putting something between the body of the cello and the bridge, loosening the strings, repositioning the bridge, etc etc...this is nice and compact, transportable, and the sound quality is excellent...i am very very happy with this product and recommend it highly to someone who would like to have amplification without any chance of damage to the instrument...

Hello Richard! This pickup is essentially a microphone, so it is possible for you to experience interference from external sounds or other percussive sounds the instrument makes. A preamp is not required, but using one could help filter out some of that external noise. Balance-wise, it is equally loud across all 4 strings because of the way the pickup is weaved between the strings.

Hi Michaela, thanks for your question. Yes, you can use this pickup to plug your instrument into effects pedals. However, we recommend using a preamp to boost audio level and improve tone. Please follow the link to view preamps and let us know if you have any additional questions.
