    I would never use a magnetic pickup if I was trying to get an acoustic sound though. I would suggest an acoustic pickup like a K&K.

    If I am going for electric guitar-like sounds I use a solid-body...

    Oh that does sound good.

    I've got the Kala Tenor and it has (of course) a very different sound.

    Re: Dr. K Bubble

    I like those too - great mid century look.

    They look uncomfortable to play, but I'd love to try one.

    Last I checked they were no longer in production.

    Lovely sound.

    I'd like to try one of those. $285 is pricey but worth it I think.

    The right pick (for you) will tame a harsh E string.

    May I suggest ProPlec? They are reasonably priced and give a warm tone.

    In a recording situation I stay about 36" away from the mic.

  18. Re: Another pick story, making steel strings sound kinda like nyl

    I use a Pro Plec on my Kala short scale tenor.
    It really tames the brightness. LaBella strings help also.

    Agreed.
    I'm using a FetHead in place of the CloudLifter and works beautifully at $85.
    Also an SM57 clone sounds pretty great also.

    on cello as an adult
    on mandolin as an older adult
    on mandola as a much older adult
    and now on tenor guitar.

    Re: Pickup for my Rogue

    I have a mandola with a flat top. It works well on that one.

    I have another with a carved top that is fairly flat where the fingerboard meets the body.
