I started a thread on this with the BGs and it was mentioned that the LightWave optical pickups (for BG, new stuff if you've missed it listening to too much Edgar Meyer going Bach and forth) are superb for merely amplifying the true sound of the string and give an (unwanted) upright sound to the electric according to one. How 'bout it, oh you knowledgeable dudes(Bob G)? Think the LW could be attached to a DB with minimal acoustic change and wiring? It was said that nothing can or should alter the wood sound of a DB (i.e., amps and pickups are not always true to the reproduction given the venue, sound bouncing and all that). If the LightWave is great at true sound and the DB needs true sound to be ideal (aren't they all ideal!?)then maybe there's a connection. Speculating, but it seems to make sense. Si? No?
