    It seems like I've tried many pickups over the years. I've haven't tried the Wilson. It is probably the most expensive one so far. With all the options around, I'm wondering if this is about as good as it
    gets. I realize its very subjective but I'm just
    looking to see if people have been having good luck
    with the Wilsons. Please let me know. Thanks!

    The Wilson is a great sounding pickup, provided you use a good impedence matching pre-amp. It is a little more "electric" sounding than a lot of pickups out there. Good feedback resistance, and sounds pretty good with the bow. You could probably get two or three K&K pickups for the same price, and the K&K just might sound the same or better!:) Ask Bob!

    I was to understand these pickups to be very
    happening. I can't believe more people haven't
    used the Wilson. Or perhaps I'm just not getting
    the responses. My plan is to use the Wilson for
    the "close mic" effect, and use the Gage pickup
    for the thump and boom. At least thats my plan.
