    My Engelhardt EM-1 is equipped with a K&K Bass Max. It's the only pickup I've ever used. My signal goes through a Headway EDB-1 preamp to a Genz Benz 6.0. I'm currently working with a trio Female vocal/guitar, drums, URB. Low to moderate volume. Mostly acoustic with some electric guitar. I'm thinking of switching to Gage Realist. Anyone care to chime in with observations or advice.

    The Realist fares better on solid wood tops. So, as a general rule it's not as effective on a laminate instrument.
