Hi all... I've been re-reading throught the gut strings threads, but thought I'd post this question here. Forgive me if there is already a thread for this... I use a gut G&D (Gamut Lyons, med) and Spiro mittels E&A on my Kay. I am happy with my unamplified tone and when I use a mic, but when I have to use my pickup (Underwood) the gut strings sound thin and scratchy in comparison to the steel strings. Has this generally been the experience with other gut string players? Have you had better luck with a different pickup or am I just dealing with the trade-offs in tone of having to use a pickup? Generally the Spirocores and Underwood have been a fine, reliable pairing for playing at higher volumes, but I am finding myself being distracted by the tone of the guts through the pickup. I use a pre-amp eq to to try and trim the highs and warm up the tone a little, but this only goes so far. Any informed perspectives would be appreciated. Thanks!
