Love these mando pickups...easy to install and sound great. Lots of output for a passive system. I've installed several of the K & K twin and never had an issue. Install was flawless and all customers where happy. Kudos to your R & D team they hit the nail on the head with this one!!
I am a one man shop building a handful of mandolins a year, but when I am asked for recommendations for pickups the K+K comes first. I think the K+K has a very true acoustic sound and works well in high volume stage settings. It is a breeze to install and I've had no complaints about the dozens of K+K's I've installed in my and other makers instruments. And on top of that, Shoreline Music is great with customer service.
Installed in my Collings MF. Very responsive, very mic-like. Incredible tone absolutely clean with no pre-amp. Would definitely buy it again. Highly recommended.
Easily installed. Great sound and output. Better than McIntyre Feather for noise level. Thanks for great service Shoreline!
I had already purchased a K&K Trinity for my Stonebridge G22CR-C, so when I decided to get a pickup for my stage mandolin, the K&K was the only pickup I considered. I was not disappointed- the mandolin sounds awesome when amplified with this pickup and preamp combo. It doesn't pick up as much of the distracting percussive noises from the mandolin top as the under saddle or top transducer pickups I've heard, so it's the next best thing to mic-ing your instrument. Of course mic-ing severely limits your ability to move around, so this pickup can set you free! Very pleased with the product and Shoreline is a great company to deal with!
