Mandolins Pickups …
Hello ‘Sessions’ –
I often play a number of’ Celtic flavored’ tune sets on one of several different mandolins. In small settings (ie. kitchen sessions, some local sessions) I don’t require a mandolin pickup. In a stage setting, the ‘direct into Mic’ can be impractical – (despite the often superior sound results). I’ve used several contact pickups and more recently, a bridge pickup (I think it was a ‘Fishman’) but even with an EQ – the results aren’t completely satisfactory. Too much gain, the ‘clic, clic …’ of the pick. Any suggestions? Anyone use a radio frequency system?
