Pickup for vintage mandocello
Hi, I’ve got a vintage Gibson mandocello which I play as my second instrument in a local ceilidh band [first being a Fylde mandolin fitted with Headway pickup]. I’ve a problem amplifying it - I use a clip on microphone with cannon connection on the scratchplate. However I’ve recently had feedback problems particularly from the monitor, so was wondering about some sort of pickup/microphone combination, particularly with jack input. Anyone any ideas? My local guitar maker didn’t want to do anything drastic in view of the vintage nature.
