I was hoping that Michael and the others who are 10,000 times more experienced than me could give me some advice on this.
I have finally found a local group to play with (a true Holy Graal here in NoVa) and I need to amplify my MD50 for gigs in pubs &c.
As a pickup, I was thinking of getting a Dupont Stimer reissue ST48, or perhaps a Dupont Big Tone Bridge Combo. If any of you have any experience with these and can give me your opinion, I would be very grateful. I like them for the simplicity of design/installation as well as because doing business with Jacques Mazzoleni is always a pleasure.
As for an amp, I have no idea of what would allow me to get the best sound out of the pickup and guitar I mentioned. I am inclined towards the compact Schertler David, given the good reviews I have read (here and elsewhere) unless any of you think that this setup may give me any problems.
