    Just thought i'd share..

    Here are some pics of my 'ready for anything' pickup setup.

    In optimal conditions or with FOH - Dpa4099
    stoopid loud - K&K bassmax ( which is an amazing, underrated pu. )
    anything in between - Realist

    Only the realist is a permanent mount, the Dpa & the Bassmax are easily removed.

    Anyone else use a similar setup?

  2. In some way, yes.

    ATM-35 (similar to DPA4099, using the same holder and position)
    sometimes Shadow SH-950 (two element bridge wing pickup),
    Shadow SH-965NFX-B (bridge foot pickup, similar to Realist, but with foils under both legs and impedance buffer)
    and Full Circle.

    I've got the poor man's pickups going on with a Six Rounds Double Barrel and a Radio Shack clip-on in the f-hole. I've got an fdeck and GEB-7 for the piezo and it works well enough for the total system costing me under $200. I normally only use the piezo because the RS has a resonance on D and I've only got one EQ pedal. :smug:

    I've since taped the cables above and below the battery box rather than over it. Funny thing is, I still rarely plug in.
