Great value for money, DIY Customization a Breeze
The shipping by EMS was speedy, and item arrived in good condition. Installation can be done using a drill, knife, sandpaper and screwdriver. No need for for a routing tool or band saw. Just tape the area you wish to carve out with masking tape, stick on the printable scale cutting template from the Artec website, or do the measurments yourself and mark the tape, and drill all along the lines, cut it out and sand til it fits. Then drill the mounting holes and use a screw driver. Connecting the wires up is a breeze with all the appropriate jacks and plugs used. The Under-saddle pickup was surprisingly good compared to some cheaper Fishman transducers, very little piezo 'quacking'. Drilling the hole can be a bit troublesome, as the wire doesn't terminate at the end of the pickup, but somewhere a little on the inside, requiring the hole to be tapered to accommodate the extra bit sticking out. The mic gooseneck is a bit short, but with a bit of trial and error, you can eliminate most of the boominess. The stock sound hole magnetic pickup is pretty good, with a balanced tonality, more low end than the UST at neutral, but a bit too noisy for my taste. Fortunately, you can retrofit one of Artec's other Soundhole humbuckers which are for temporary installation, by stripping the 1/4" socket and soldering a 3.5mm TS jack to it so that you can plug it into the preamp. I used the Wood Covered pickup without the exposed 12 poles, and the result is a very clean output with a much deeper tonality. The UST pickup jack uses a 2.5mm TS jack to plug into the preamp, which means another brand pickup such as a K&K or JJB soundboard transducer can also be used, as long as the expected impedance is 1k Ohms. The controls do feel a little cheap, with scratchy faders, but for the price, it was well worth the money. No other system offers this many options for the price, and the hassle-free 9V drop-in battery box is a nice touch. With the XLR output alongside the standard 1/4" output, I can do without a DI box in a pinch. The 3-band EQ for the Piezo/Soundhole pickup can be very subtle, but a sweeping mid-frequency selector would have been great. The Sharpness control for the Mic seems to barely do anything, though this could be due to the cheap Mic capsule used. If only the Mic was swappable as well. Overall, if you're looking for a system that does everything, and would like to play around with your pickup choices by simple plug-n-play, there is no better system!
