    I'm just curious which pickup you guys could recommend for me?

    Living in Australia (and fortunately working in a music shop) so I have access to names like Fishmann, Barcus Berry, etc.

    Wanting to use the pickup for some jazz, cabaret work.

    Help!? Ta!

    Georgia, those links contain what you are looking for - opinions on the pickups. Since it is a commonly asked question/topic, these threads provide a wealth of info.

    Ok, many thanks.
     
  6. I strongly recommend the McIntyre Bass "Feather". I believe this pickup is the best. It sounds like a good condenser mic., but with no feedback.
