Comments: "I haven't tried the A3 yet, but I've been using and installing B-Band systems for years and I think they're the best sounding pickups available. If you get a guitar with a mic combo, I'd swap out the mic for a 1470 UST. IMHO, all internal mics suffer from the same problems (location, location, location), resulting in weird woofy resonances and feedback at very modest volumes. The AST solves most of those problems while giving you most of the good things about the mic - sense of air, more wood in the sound, no quack. I've been using an A2/AST/UST combo lately and getting the best amplified sound I ever have. Here's a sample, recorded direct to digital, no EQ, just a bit of reverb. The guitar is the Redwood acoustic-electric pictured on the left." - Mike, Doolin Guitars

Comments: "I recorded the acoustic tracks with a Neumann 87, which I panned to the left, and the B-Band pickup, which I panned to the right. On all the tracks, I ran the pickup through an MXR micro amp turned up to about 2 o'clock, which fattened it up quite a bit before going into the "direct in" of my Studer D-19 mic pre." - Scott
