    hey!

    first of all,since i'm fresh in this forum i just want to say hi everyone ;)

    my question is about double bass pickups, because each time i play live, if the mic doesn't go trough the PA i might just forget the concert, so i want to buy a decent pickup for my double bass.
    the problem is that i don't have a clue on this business, so if anyone could eventually hepl me i would be grateful.
    i'm looking for a cheap (110$) but good sounding pickup that works not only for pizzikato but also for bowing.

    tks!*

    Welcome to the club.

    K&K is well liked by many here.

    Underwood.

    Fishman has a new pickup and the early word is that it's good.

    A few folks have been speaking well of the Clevinger Natural Cleavage pickup or some such model.

    There are hundreds, but these are what leap to mind first.
