      Hey guys, looking for the best pickup to drop into a 2010 d/pw w/mahogany back & sides. Mainly a gigging solo performer.  Hearing great things about the LR Baggs Anthem. Anyone have any practical experience with the Anthem? Fishman Trinity also looks interesting… thanks!

      Welcome Michlandir….Pull up a chair, I’m sure you’re going to get some response on this, so I’ll start. I like passive, can’t stand a battery in an airline cargo hold……Again, welcome!

      Really, your pickup selection depends on what you play and the rig you’re playing into. Do you strum? Fingerpick?  Slide?  Do you go into a powered mixer or a passive mixer or an amp?

      Different pickups will responds to these variables variously better and worse.

      I have Anthem in my Cruz. I like the sound, but my band hates it. They prefer the K&K in my Brondel and Northwood.

      Curious what they don’t like – does it take up too much space in the mix?

      I don’t think I was using the K&K preamp I got from Eric that day. It went straight into the pa and was too bright. The K&K in the Brondel is a bit fatter and rounder. The K$K in the Northwood is the best of the three.

      I find the K&K preamp to be far better sonically than the Baggs PADI I have,
