Has anyone tried out any forms of amplification for the BR-40T? Nothing available factory-installed. Any suggestions or experiences would be appreciated.

I can use my Schertler Dyn external Transducer on any stringed instrument with a soundboard.

Note: the Dyn M and Dyn G are the same but for the cord length.

It is a dynamic style capsule, there is an XLR plug on the end ,

so It uses Mic Cables for extending the length.

I asked the guy at Elderly the same question, as I want my tenor to have the versatility to play electric when I feel like pretending I'm still a punk. No desire to sound like I'm playing a thin, loud acoustic. I want it to break up, a real magnetic single coil option that I can put in the soundhole and take out. He was stumped. Small soundhole, 4 poles, means no easy option. I have an old Harmony archtop beater. Thinking about buying a ###### old kay mando just for the pickup, putting it on that. Or maybe a bass pickup. Or waiting for the Eastwwod solid body electric, if the pickup's any good and it comes in under 250.

You can have an Under saddle Bridge pickup installed, same mech as used, installed, in a bunch of guitars ..

And there are microphones , one that I have the image of , it peeks over the edge of the sound hole ..

I personallyLOVE this one...... http://www.amazon.com/Pure-Western-Acoustic-Guitar-Pickup/dp/B000P5OULA
Inexpensive, and if installed correctly[very important] a high output unit.
K&K recommends a preamp, but I use them often without,depending on the venue.
